Wind Mountain is a relatively short but moderately challenging hike. It is also known for being home to authentic Native American vision quest sites. The summit offers remarkable views of the Columbia River and Cascade Mountains. There are some spots on the trail that are rocky, so be cautious, and there can be rattlesnakes and poison oak along the trail. And yes, it is windy at the top so be prepared! If you are looking for a quieter hike, this is a trail that is not as well known as Dog Mountain and you can be at the top in half the time.
Travel 6 miles east of Stevenson on Highway 14 and turn left on Wind Mountain Road (1/2 mile past Home Valley Store). Travel just under 1.5 miles and take a right on Girl Scout Road. Travel 0.4 mile. Just after the paved road gives way to gravel you will see a small unmarked parking area at the north side base of the mountain. Park here and continue down the gravel road about 200 yards to the unmarked trailhead.
