    Constructed in 1998, The Maryhill Overlook is a site-specific sculpture featuring a 150 foot ribbon of concrete with openings that provide capsule views of the surrounding landscape, transforming and shifting with light and perspective. It was Allied Works’ first completed Sitings Project, part of a series of conceptual proposals seeking to interpret and reveal the diverse landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. For more information on the work: http://www.alliedworks.com/projects/maryhill-interpretive-overlook/#/overview/2

    An accessible pathway surrounds the sculpture and takes visitors through a Native Plant Garden featuring plants collected by Lewis & Clark’s Corps of Discovery during their[masked] trek. Interpretative panels explain Maryhill’s history, its 5,300-acre site, and regional attractions.

    THE WORLD FAMOUS BEACON ROCK TRAIL

    The world famous Beacon Rock Trail is reopened to hikers following completion of repairs to fix a trail bridge damaged during a January rock slide. The mile-long trail to the top of Beacon Rock is a popular day hike, well-known for providing outstanding views of the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. On January 25, falling rock damaged the beams of one of the bridges affixed to a cliff face, requiring the trail to be closed. Dan R. Dalton, Inc., of Usk, was hired to repair the steel beams, and park staff repaired the wood decking and hand rails. The bridge was re-opened on Friday, April 12!

    Dog Mountain is a killer! I generally climb it once a year but the last time I hiked it my knees were screaming at me all the way down. Hamilton Mountain across from Beacon Rock is a beautiful hike, especially if you do the little loop at the top. You can see the mountains over on the Washington side and it is a great place to have a picnic.

    Carson Hot Springs is a very rustic spa. You sit in big clawfoot tubs filled with water from the hot springs and then you get wrapped up in blankets and chill in a quiet room with a door open to the sound of the river rushing by.

    There is great wine tasting over there, too. Not fancy places but some with good wine, Syncline being one of my favorites.

    Whitewater rafting is also a good option.

    2009 Washington Winery of the Year

    MARY HILL WINERY


    Beneath the shaded gaze of our grape and flowered lattice, guests enter Maryhill and often find their attention split. Framed in the west windows, Mt. Hood waits for the afternoon's sunset, while to their right our deeply aged Brunswick Bar beckons them to taste. Quarter sawn from Tiger Oak in the early 1900s, it stretches twenty feet by twelve feet high with exquisite wood carvings and inset mirrors. As the focal point of the tasting room, we proudly pour our wines from it and invite our guests to sample why we came to Maryhill. For more intimate conversation, visitors can take a glass to one of the smaller fireside tables or walk out on our expansive deck to the west or our wind protected grapevine covered arbor to the east. A platform for unprecedented views of the mountains and the Columbia River Gorge, it's the perfect way to end the day

    But a lot has been happening in those months: On May 12 and 13, Maryhill unveils its new Mary and Bruce Stevenson Wing, a roughly $10 million expansion project that is the biggest thing to happen to the museum in a long time. The addition will play the modern 21st century Felix Unger to the existing structure's 20th century Oscar Madison, adding efficient storage space, a modern exhibit area and educational spaces, as well as a cafe and open patio area.
