Munra Point. My favorite hike.

I’ve done this hike over 8 times in the past 2 years. This hike is very hard to find. So I took some pictures of landmarks to help you find it. Be prepared to sweat. Although is only 6 miles round trip, and only 1870′ elevation gain total… You climb 1700 feet in the last mile.  I love hiking in the gorge but a lot of the hikes are very crowded.  Not this one.  It is unmarked, and very steep, sometimes you have to climb up a big boulder. but it isn’t that start at the Wahclellah Falls trailhead.  Then walk back toward the road and look for this sign:

Then just keep going up.  if the path stops and you don’t know which way to go.  Climb the boulder in front of you and you will eventually make it to an awesome summit with a 360 degree view of the gorge, the Oregon forest, Bonneville damn, and Washington.  You will love it.  I do and I have taken all my friends.  Also after you summit you can go hiking along the ridge line as far into the forest as you’l like.
