Explore, Discover & Experience The Columbia River Gorge
The Columbia River Gorge is the largest national scenic are in the United states with a variety of terrain including rain forest and dessert, sea-level passage and alpine meadows.
A network of hiking trails climbs from lowland forests to windy ridges on both sides of the Gorge. The river itself hosts the best boardsailing conditions this side of Hawaii. There are historical museums and art centers, fine dining, theatres, wineries, breweries, a wealth of recreational opportunities and much more.
The Columbia Gorge is a place of history. Its geologic origins date to massive flows of lava millions of years ago, carved more recently by tremendous icy floods at the end of the latest glaciation. Native Americans settled here years before the first European explorers. Lewis & Clark came down the Columbia Gorge, and the Oregon Trail pioneers followed soon after, pausing briefly before continuing their journey westward.
