Details:
Columbia Hills Historical State Park puts the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area at your fingertips.

Rock climbing, swimming and spring hikes through vast fields of yellow arrowleaf balsamroot flowers make for an action-packed stay, not to mention the nearby attractions of Goldendale Observatory and Maryhill Museum.

Columbia Hills is home to Horsethief Butte, a favorite among climbers of all abilities. Horsethief Lake caters to water-lovers, with a boat launch and pedal boat rentals. To the north of Highway 14, the Dalles Mountain Ranch Area, a historic homestead ranch, features miles of multi-use trails that crisscross the Columbia Hills with astounding views of Mount Adams and Mount Hood.

A group of significant Native American pictographs and petroglyphs is open for viewing on regularly scheduled guided ranger tours. Among these features is the world-famous Tsagaglalal, (She Who Watches).

There are opportunities to relax at Columbia Hills, but with so much to see and do in the park and the Gorge, you may not sit still on this visit.
