Plan Your Visit to the Columbia River Gorge

The Columbia River Gorge is vast. It stretches over 80 miles and is shared by two states (Oregon and Washington), six counties and thirteen urban areas. Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood flank the Gorge to the north and south and the mighty Columbia River flows through its middle. Gorge vistas are arguably the most magnificent in the world and the area is rich in natural resources and cultural history. One visit to this area is never enough. We guarantee that what you'll experience here will keep you coming back for more.
