Welcome to some of the most dramatic and scenic parts of the Pacific Northwest! The Columbia River Gorge is a National Scenic Area with a wealth of history. Native Americans have gathered in this area for upwards of 10,000 years – petroglyphs and pictographs are still visible near The Dalles, and a memorial is planned at the former trading site of Celilo Falls. Lewis and Clark passed through here on their expedition, and the Oregon Trail followed a long stretch of the river as well.

The Columbia Gorge is popular for hiking, road trips, windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing, and a slew of other outdoor pursuits. From the stunning beauty of the Historic Columbia River Highway, to the numerous peaks lining the route with hiking trails, this is a truly unique part of the world. Arching over all with its distinctive profile is Mt. Hood, Oregon’s highest peak and home to the nation’s longest ski season, and three different ski resorts to make the most of it.

Outdoor lovers can find endless opportunities to play in this region of Oregon, from skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, to learning to windsurf in the perfect, consistent winds of the river. Sightseeing is richly rewarding, with trails woven through the area and leading to dozens of waterfalls, including the famous and stunning Multnomah Falls. Be sure to visit Crown Point Vista House and take in the sweeping views!

For the history, the outdoor recreation, the variety of microclimates, and the accessibility to both urban and rural areas, you can’t beat this part of Oregon. Welcome home!
