Miner Fred Beck claims to have killed one of the large apes and, later that night, the apes retaliated by thrashing the miners' campsite. Today, Skamania County has an ordinance against shooting Bigfoot. Visitors can follow signage to the Ape Caves, where a 2.5-mile trail snakes below the ground to form the longest continuous lava tube in the United States. These cambered corners take riders off Washington State Route 14 to one of the many rest areas dotting the gorge. Bring a snack and a camera.
