Munra point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Approaching the summit of Munra Point
Summit view NE down the Gorge. On a clear day, Mt. Adams is visible over the horizon.

Description

Munra Point is an exposed basalt knob at the junction of three spiny ridges just west of Tanner Creek. Visible from I-84 as a green shark's fin of ridge sticking up out of the trees, the summit offers a spectactular and exposed 360 degree view up and down the Columbia River Gorge and is reached via a steep and scrambly non-maintained trail.

Munra Point is accessible year round, but is safest in dry weather. Wildflowers are present in the spring, including Yellow Fawn Lillies, Grass Widows, Gold Stars, and Larkspurs.
