Welcome to The Western Gorge & Columbia River Highway


The Columbia River Hwy offers access to gushing waterfalls in spring, wildflower displays in summer and awe-inspiring views all year round. Hikers have plenty of trailheads to choose from, and cyclists can cruise two stretches of the old highway renovated for nonvehicular use. It's slow going on busy weekends, however, and windy enough that trailers are not recommended.
