Create an itinerary including Beacon Rock State Park
Beacon Rock State Park is a geologic preserve and public recreation area on Route 14 in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Skamania County, Washington, United States. The park takes its name from Beacon Rock, an 848-foot (258 m) basalt volcanic plug on the north shore of the Columbia River 32 miles (51 km) east of Vancouver. On October 31, 1805, the Lewis and Clark Expedition arrived here and first measured tides on the river, indicating that they were nearing the ocean.

  • This is a great park with little or no information available on location. Get yourself a map from the website before you go! Even with the map, it can be confusing. There are a lot of great hikes.....  more

  • The hike to the top of Beacon Rock is only about a mile long but over 800 feet of elevation gain. That said, it is very doable for most people and the trail is well maintained. Great views! This can be a very popular trail so be prepared to search for parking on on nice days. The campground is clean and well laid out with nice facilities but like most state parks these sites are fairly close together and offer little privacy.
  • Beacon rock trail is 1.8 mile round trip hike. Requires discovery pass for parking. You can get one for $10 at the site. Hike trail is moderate and is well managed. View from top is good but you can't see much as the trees block most of the view. View from mid trail is great. We were lucky to snap a rainbow as well.
