Cape Horn Trail

Flickr: US Forest Service

A worth-it destination run. This popular trail run, located 25 miles east of Washington, is known for its undulating wooded sections and great views of the Columbia River from a high vantage point. The full 6.5 mile loop is a fairly rugged trail run, with an elevation gain of 1,225 feet and some occasionally challenging footing. A shorter, easier option is the 2 mile ‘blue’ trail in the attached trail map to access the Nancy Russell Cape Horn Overlook. Waterfalls, wildflowers, and some great views!

 

Essentials
  • Full loop is 6.5 miles (10.5 km); Shorter, easier option is 2 miles
  • 1,225 feet (373m)
  • Trailhead at Salmon Falls Park or off Evergreen Highway for Overlook
  • Parking at Salmon Falls Park trailhead
