Wild Stallion Sculptures

Steep graveled kind of hill. Walking sticks and great traction shoes a must.

Wild ponies.

Wild Horse Monument

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.

Wild Horses Monument

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.

Looks real from afar. Beautiful view from up there.

Wild Horses

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.
