The best camping near Hanford Reach National Monument guide

Overview

About

Part of the Oregon Coast Range, this saddle-shaped peak in the northwest corner of the state is legendary for its hiking trails.

The first mile of the main trail starts at a deceptively easy pace. After that, it climbs to the top of the 3,290-foot summit in a steep zigzag. Your reward should you take on the challenging 2.5-mile ascent to the top? Panoramic views of the Columbia River entering the Pacific Ocean and Mount St. Helens.

Try to visit Saddle Mountain in May or June. The breathtaking scenery is made all the more delicious by the rich wildflower display blanketing the mountain's meadows. If the main hike is more than you're up for, go with the 10-minute Humbug Mountain viewpoint trail.

Saddle Mountain is accessible year-round, and there are 10 primitive campsites at the base of the mountain.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Hanford Reach National Monument is from late spring to early fall, when the weather is warm and the natural flora is in full bloom. Winter months can be harsh, with cold temperatures and limited access due to potential snowfall.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast before your visit, as conditions can change rapidly and influence your experience.
  • Be aware of any seasonal closures or restricted areas within the monument for conservation efforts.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear for rugged terrain and variable weather.
  • Cell service may be unreliable, so plan accordingly and inform someone of your itinerary.
  • Remember to carry enough water and supplies, as facilities are limited within the monument.
