Chinook Point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

View to Saddle Mountain from Chinook Point, Fort Columbia (bobcat)
The small beach at Chinook Point (bobcat)


This small rocky headland shelters a tiny pocket beach. At low tide, you can scramble to the right across the rocks to get views back to Saddle Mountain and across to the mouth of the Columbia and Cape Disappointment.

The year 1792 saw the first visits of non-native explorers to this area, first by the American sea captain Robert Gray and then by Lieutenant Broughton of the Vancouver expedition. The latter noted a native village near this spot.
