Mosier Plateau Trail
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

This 3.5-mile moderate out-and-back hike takes you past blooming fields of wildflowers, along Mosier Creek and Mosier Creek Falls, then up to the open plateau where, depending on the season, you can observe bald eagles soaring through the sky.
The idea for the Mosier Plateau Trail came from the local nonprofit the Friends of the Columbia Gorge Land Trust. The organization set a goal to create a series of trail connections throughout the Columbia Gorge that would support hiking opportunities between each of the 13 urban areas in the region.
Additionally, the Friends of the Columbia Gorge Land Trust connected with Travel Oregon and became a project beneficiary of the Travel Oregon Forever Fund.
