Little is known about the man named Mitchell for whom the point was named. He was believed to be a trapper who lived and died in the area. There have been some efforts to rename the point Storm Crest, but they have not been successful.
The now-demolished Mitchell Point Tunnel on the Historic Columbia River Highway was bored through the point, which is a cliff that overhangs the Columbia River. The part of the rock through which the tunnel passed was known to the local Native Americans as Little Storm King, and the larger mountain above that point was known as Great Storm King.

Mitchell Point Trail reviews
On our drive from San Francisco to Spokane, my husband, little dog, and I stopped to rest and take in the views and a hike along the trail. This is a gorgeous area that is well worth taking the time..... more »
The trail is steep but not overly so, the challenge is crossing several rock fields where the rocks are not firmly in place. Definitely not for kids under 13. The view from the top is fantastic. more »
