Overlooking the scenic Columbia River Gorge and nearby Beacon Rock, Hamilton Mountain hosts several trails for hikers and equestrians.
Hamilton Mountain reaches a mere 2.438 feet, but features Hardy Creek, Hardy Falls and Rodney Falls Pool of Winds. If you do the whole loop, you’ll log roughly 9 miles. Although I’ve never seen horses here, keep an eye out for them and yield as they pass.
While you’re here don’t forget to drive across the highway and hike up Beacon Rock. It’s worth it!
