Cape Horn Conservancy is an all volunteer non-profit dedicated to providing thoughtful stewardship of this trail and surrounding public lands in the Washougal to Stevenson corridor. We work closely with the United States Forest Service (USFS), Washington Trails Association (WTA), and Friends of the Columbia Gorge (FOCG) to maintain and improve the existing trail and to plan for its eventual integration into a Washougal to Stevenson trail system. We have a vision of this trail as a world-class hiking destination, a jewel of the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area trail system.  Please join us in this effort.

Cape Horn Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a member of
Skamania County Chamber of Commerce.

TRAIL CONDITION: Thanks to legions of volunteers, Cape Horn Trail is now free of downed trees, perhaps unique among trails in the Columbia Gorge!

February 1: A portion of the lower trail is now closed for nesting Peregrine Falcons and will reopen July 16th. In the meantime you can enjoy the upper trail as an out-and-back hike instead of a loop.
