Directions: Take I-84 East to Cascade Locks and cross the Bridge Of The Gods ($2 toll). Take a left onto Highway 14 and follow it towards Beacon Rock. Continue driving three miles past Beacon Rock and watch for a small pullout on the right side of the road. There is yellow reflective tape on a metal guardrail. It’s not far past the Skamania General Store.
This isn’t the easiest place to find and it’s not a hike at all. It’s just feet from Highway 14. You can actually see it from the highway if you know where to look. It’s a fun addition to nearby hikes and a place not many people know of.
From the pullout where you parked follow a skinny path up the side of the hill. It drops you at what is left of an old stone house. It’s quite interesting as the fireplace and some of the walls are still intact. We don’t know anything about this place or even how old it is. If anyone has any information on this house we would love to hear it!
Pet Friendly: Yes
Good For: All ages
Parking Fee: No
Overall: This is a fun little secluded place to take a look at if you’re in the area 🙂
