Hikes starting here

Driving Directions

Drive I-84 east and take Exit 44 for Cascade Locks and Stevenson. Keep right after exiting and, 0.4 miles from the freeway, turn right for Stevenson and the Bridge of the Gods Toll Bridge.

Drive 0.7 miles, paying the $3 toll and crossing the Bridge of the Gods, and turn right onto Highway 14 East for Stevenson and Kennewick.

After 5.9 miles on Highway 14, turn left at a roundabout onto the Wind River Road for Carson and the Wind River Recreation Area.

Drive north on this highway for 8.7 miles to Stabler/ Hemlock and go left on Hemlock Road for the Wind River Work Center.

In 0.2 miles, turn right on Szydlo Road, which becomes FR 54.

Drive 13.0 miles to the junction with FR 34 and keep right on FR 54.

Go another 0.4 miles to the trailhead at the junction of three forest roads (FR 54, 5407, and the 307 spur); park before the gate at 307 even if it is open.

There used to be a trailhead sign and Wilderness Permit box here, but the vandals removed the signs in 2016. The USFS will probably replace them fairly soon.

Fees and Regulations

  • Sign in at the wilderness permit box at the trailhead (if it's there)
  • $3 toll each way at the Bridge of the Gods
