Visitor Tips and News About Wild Stallion Sculptures
Amazing from the distance and also cool up close. Quite a hike up the hill. Hot, dry, and the loose gravel makes it hairy coming down. I drove around the hill hoping for an easier way up and found a trail that was a little easier -- but still a bear. Too bad vandals decided to "tag" the ponies.[Connie from Seattle, 08/18/2013]
Great spot to stop and have a picnic, hike the cliffs, enjoy the scenic view of the Columbia River and the Vantage Bridge. No shade, no trash cans, no restrooms, cul-de-sac turn around for RVs and trailers.
Easy hike for an up-close greeting of the 200-foot-long line of 15 wild horse sculptures on top of a cliff recreating the Great Spirit. Titled "Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies." The creation of David Govedare of Chewelah, Washington.[Michelle M Tucker, 07/06/2013]
Looks real from afar. Beautiful view from up there.[Adrienne Carlson, 06/19/2013]
I have been here three times, in 1984, 2000, and 2012. This time I was able to climb the hill that the horses are on. Easy climb, but be careful when coming down because of loose rocks. I spent about 40 minutes on top. I was just wowed about how big and great the horses are when you get there. This is a must stop and see attraction, whether you go all the way up or not.[Troy N.

The climb to the Wild Stallion Sculptures is not difficult, and the pay off is fantastic! Please don't leave "your mark" on the horses. It is painfully tacky![Snave, 07/11/2011]
