From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Indian Point's high exposed east face.
The point itself. The area has big drop offs on both sides, so continuing any closer is not safe.

Description

Indian Point is a rock spire that can be seen from I-84, east of Cascade Locks. From a very exposed, rocky saddle next to the point, there are expansive views looking east towards Wind Mountain and Dog Mountain.

Indian Point can be reached from the Gorton Creek Trail about 100 feet east of the Ridge Cutoff Trail junction. There is a steep, unmarked user trail that descends around 1/4 mile to the point. Beware that this user trail gets dangerous as it reaches the rock peninsula that leads to the tip of Indian Point. There are steep drop offs on both sides, and possibly loose rocks. A fall would be fatal.

There is a flat, slightly sheltered area right before the point itself that is a nice spot to stop and admire the view. Beware that this area is highly exposed and can be windy. Continuing past this spot is dangerous due to loose rocks and a high risk of falling.
