Towering Wind Mountain is located in Home Valley on the Washington side of the Columbia River
Gorge, 50 miles east of Vancouver. Due to its steep south face and location directly above the river, it is
one of the most distinguished features of the gorge.
For the trailhead, turn into Wind Mountain Road at milepost 50.54 on
Washington State Highway 14 (0.4 of a mile east of the Home Valley Store).
Follow Wind Mountain Road for 1.6 miles, take a right on Girl Scout Road.
Park after driving 0.3 miles on Girl Scout Road at a small quarry where the paved road turns to gravel.

Walk 250 yards down the gravel road. Watch for an unmarked, but easily identified, trail
that leaves the
road to the right. The well-graded trail switchbacks across the mountain from its northeast to southeast
sides as it climbs to the top.

Built by the Girl Scouts of the Columbia River Council, the Bob Kuse Memorial Trail up 1,903-foot high
Wind Mountain was named by his mother for the victim of an automobile accident. The trail begins on land
owned by the Girl Scouts, but soon enters U.S. Forest Service land. It's two miles one way, with a
1,200-foot elevation gain. Allow two hours round trip, plus lots of extra time to enjoy the spectacular
summit views. The summit offers interesting views of the Columbia River Gorge and the Wind River Valley.

Wind Mountain, whose southern slopes descend directly to the Columbia River, has a symmetrical profile
that is easy to identify while driving in the gorge.

Wind Mountain didn't get its name by accident. The parking area is in a low saddle that can be a wind
funnel. The trail is sheltered and protected by trees, but the summit's rocky slopes are likely to be windy.
The opening in the rocks on the summit were native American vision quest sites, so do not disturb anything.

Wind Mountain is located in the small community of Home Valley. This small community offers a
convenience store with gas and diesel (the Home Valley Store), a coffeeshop/deli (Whistle Stop),
and a small resort with RV-sites and 4 motel rooms, named after the mountain:
Wind Mountain Resort.

The Skamania County park at Home Valley has tent camping, picnicking and Columbia River access.
Windsurfers crowd the park when sailing conditions are good in the gorge.
