Larch Mountain Hike

Hike Larch

Larch Mountain in Oregon, not to be confused with the nearby larch in Washington, also near the Columbia Gorge, is one of the most popular hikes in the Columbia River Gorge.  The Crater Loop hike is one of the best hikes on Larch Mountain and one of the best in the Columbia River Gorge.  What makes this hike so spectacular is that it follows ridgelines on top of an old volcanic rim and looks into the now-forested crater.   The hiking on Larch mountain is great to begin with, couple this with amazing views into Portland and Vancouver and you have one of the best hikes in the Pacific Northwest.
