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.
