Trails within the Mitchell Point trail system have had many issues associated with a winter storm that occurred in 2012. Wygant Trail is impassable at Perham Creek crossing due to a bridge that has washed out and Chetwoot Loop is only open from the junction of Wygant Trail and is impassable south of the power line corridor.

The family of Vinzenz Lausmann gave 126 acres of rugged scenic land to the State of Oregon in his memory. This park adjoins two other state parks tract near Mitchell Point located about 5 miles west of Hood River on Interstate 84. A plaque honoring Mr. Lausmann is at the foot of the park, where a trail leads the visitor up the steep faces of fir, alder and maple which define the Columbia River Gorge in this area. The views of the Gorge from this trail are spectacular.
