By itself, Angel's Rest is a fantastic day hike not far from Portland. When supplemented with the Foxglove Way addition, however, the vistas get even more rewarding. This is easily one of the most enjoyable adventures along the Columbia River Gorge, situated more than 1,500 ft above the river. Day-hikers are treated to beautiful panoramas of Washington and the Cascades, provided you don't mind tackling a summit trail that's moderately strenuous. There's plenty of flora to appreciate along the way up to Angel's Rest, and the addition of Foxglove will tack on about 2.5 miles to your adventure. An absolute must for visitors to Portland.
