Save this challenging hike for a dry day—and prepare to climb nearly 2,000 feet of elevation in 2.5 miles. From the trailhead, head southwest through open woods and immediately cross Tanner Creek on a wide, paved bridge. After 1,000 feet, turn left onto the Gorge Trail for a brief climb up the Tanner Creek drainage and an easy-going traverse of Munra Point's lush northern slopes. At mile 1.6, turn left at the signed junction for the final, 0.9-mile push to Munra Point. Pace yourself—this unmaintained path gains more than 1,600 feet of elevation and requires some tricky scrambling. After 2.4 miles, crest Munra Point's moss-covered summit and savor spectacular views across the Gorge. Follow the same route back to the trailhead.
