Great early season area, too sandy and hot in the summer. Rocky and no facilities so bring plenty of water.

This is a great comprehensive tour of the area, if you have the endurance for it. You get to see all the lakes, plus some of the vehicle accessed ones. You get to see the Gorge Amphitheater and the Columbia River. There's flat and hilly terrain, shrubby and grassy terrain, and pebbly and chunky terrain. Just a great all around tour.
