A hike ascending up a canyon wall, looping around the edge of a peninsula jutting out into Lake Billy Chinook. Features grand views of the dramatic canyon walls, breathtaking deep-blue lake, and desert scenery. Located in The Cove-Palisades State Park.
Start your hike at the lower parking lot (follow signs for the day use area, and drive to the end of the road). Follow the trail and cross a few roads before reaching a campground. From here, the trail starts climbing up about 600 feet up to the top of the canyon. Once at the top, hike either clockwise or counter-clockwise. The top is very flat and features breathtaking views of the lake across both canyons on either side.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
