Tag Archives: Council bluff

We did a short, steep hike to the top of Council Bluff last week. Most of the trail is an old jeep road in bad shape. When we came to the end of that, there were 3 or 4 switchbacks til we reached the top and had views of Mount St Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Adams, in addition to Council Lake, where the trail started. The air was hazy from wildfire smoke and high pressure. I think on a clearer day we could have seen Mount Hood too. Sky would tell you, the best part of this hike was jumping in the lake when we were done!
