Gorge-Elevator Shaft Trail Junction

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking west on the Gorge Trail, with the Elevator Shaft Trail leading up to the left (Steve Hart)


An indistinct tread in the scree heads up from the Gorge Trail to cross a rusting fence and a band of vegetation, which includes much poison oak, to begin the switchback ascent of the Elevator Shaft, which in turn leads to Multnomah Basin.
