A hike to the top of Table Mountain is one of the most rewarding in the Columbia River Gorge, though it does take a little spirit and strength to complete the climb. Stunning views open up once you emerge from the forest.  Looking downriver you will see Larch Butte and Hamilton Mountain, and from the summit the views of the region's grand volcanoes come into full view: Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, Mount Rainier and even the tip of Mount Jefferson. The Bonneville Trailhead is on the Pacific Crest Trail, which made the hike 15 miles there-and-back.

Over 90 Degrees in the Gorge, but what a Great and Challenging Hike and Scramble!

The Bonneville Hot Springs is now off limits, so I started at the Bonneville Trailhead. I logged 17 miles RT (with a few detours here and there).

I started at Bonneville TH, cut onto the PCT, went up heartbreak ridge, and looped down the West Way.

Beautiful day on Table Mountain. Great views. Came down via the Heartbreak Ridge boulder field, not recommended for dogs. Would probably go up that way next time, not down. From Bonneville, it looks like they have re-routed the trail a bit, but just follow the detour signs and it spits you onto the trail near Carpenter Lake.
