Hamilton Mountain Trail Report
Return to Message Board
We did the Rodney Falls/Hamilton Mountain loop this past Sunday. This trail is located in Beacon Rock State Park on the Washington side of the Gorge. The waterfalls were great. The trail was clear of snow at the lower elevations, but near the top of the mountain, the snow really began to pile up--with a foot or two of snow at the top (but at least when we did it, we were able to complete the loop trip). The weather during our trip was mostly cloudy, and it did snow on us for a little while. There were no views for us, the clouds were just too thick. I haven't done this trip before, so if you have photos, please post. I can imagine that there is a pretty impressive view from the top. I plan on rehiking it this spring, and I'll be sure to add the hike after that.
