Nesmith Point Hike


This 10 mile hike is great for hikers who want to challenge themselves. Enjoy beautiful views and greenery to an old fire lookout.
Starting from the Elowah Falls Trailhead, hike up to the junction with Trail #400, and continue the very steep ascent, following signs for Nesmith Point.  This will lead you right onto the Nesmith Point Trail (#428), then up to an old road, where you will find an old fire lookout and abandoned outhouse. Once at the top, great views of the Gorge and surrounding mountains allow the weary hiker a nice rest before a knee-breaking trip back down.
