Government Cove Peninsula (Spring 2019)

Directions: Take I-84 East to the exit just past Cascade Locks that’s marked for a weigh station. Get on Frontage Rd and continue on and cross the tracks. Park near the gate.

This is a nice quick hike with good views of the Gorge.

You can pretty much explore this area however you want. There is a paved path that takes you up to the top of the rock. You get nice views at the top and it would make a good place to eat lunch if you brought it.


There is also a trail that goes all the way around the base of the rock and takes you out to a point right along the Columbia.


We were here a bit too early for wildflowers but if you come late April through early June there will be a bunch of different types of flowers.
