Balfour-Klickitat Area and Trail

Balfour-Klickitat Trail

This day use area offers an easy paved trail with Gorge views, wildflowers, and birdwatching opportunities just west of the Klickitat River's convergence with the Columbia River. Once a ranch, the site was acquired by the Forest Service in 1994 and has undergone efforts to restore native bunchgrasses and wildflowers. Acute naturalists will note native plants thriving in some areas while other plots are still actively being restorated. A grove of non-native Osage Orange trees, planted as a windbreak in the late 1800s, have been left as a remant of the site's cultural heritage.
