Located just across the Columbia from Hood River, the Coyote Wall and Catherine Creek areas are popular hiking and mountain biking destinations. Scenic vistas, rolling oak woodlands, dramatic basalt cliffs and a proliferation of wildflowers in the spring draw many trail users from throughout the region.

With generous support from a National Forest Foundation Grant and Skamania Lodge, WTA is working in partnership with the Forest Service and other trail user groups to plan and complete trail restoration projects.
