While the crowds flock to trails near Multnomah Falls and Angel’s Rest, it is relatively simple to find more solitude by heading east. I often struggle to find a balance between my life in the city and the solitude I crave, especially given a certain propensity toward laziness. I don’t want to drive three hours to get to the perfect trail on a day off. So I compromise. Mitchell Point was a great spot for that balance. The trail was only a couple miles long, but filled with first class views from its rocky ridge. Well worth a visit, but note that the top has very steep drop offs.
