8 Mile Hamilton Mountain Hike

  • Gateway Transit Center Parking Garage

    1250 NE 99th Ave, Portland, OR (map)

    45.531850 -122.563194

  • Bottom level of the parking deck
  • Hike Details

    Meeting Place:Bottom Level of the Gateway Parking Deck Entrance

    Meeting Time: 8:30

    Hike Distance: Approx 8 miles.

    Hike Difficulty: I would rate it as strong moderate.

    Drive Distance: Approx 70 miles round trip

    Please do NOT sign up for this if you do not have decent fitness.

    This is part of the Beacon Rock State Park and Washington State requires a $10 parking pass. They do ticket. Washington State Discover Passes are only $30, so if you plan to hike/visit a few places in the next year, an annual pass may be a better option.  The NW Forest Pass is NOT valid at state parks!

    If you have injuries or can't maintain a decent pace, please do not sign up for this hike.  I don't plan to go fast, but it is too long of a hike to constantly play 'stop and go' outside of what would be considered the norm.

    It is also a longer hike than the usual ones I post, so please do not make afternoon plans that day.

    Right out of the Portland Hiker’s Field Guide : “This trail has a feast of features for hikers, including waterfalls, craggy cliffs, deep forests, superb vistas, and a nice loop option for the trek.“

    We will probably do just the trail up to Hamilton Mountain, then follow it down to the Hardy Creek Trail.  Here is a link to a map.

    Hey, are dogs allowed? My plus one has 2 that are well-behaved and hike mountains and well-populated trails often... I can vouch for them. Very friendly. ;) if not, no biggie, just thought I'd ask.
