Eastern Columbia River Gorge Hike

Date: March 2, 2013

  • Event Image

Come explore the dry side (the east end) of the Columbia River Gorge, east of the town of Hood River.  This dramatic landscape, sculpted by the largest floods in earth’s geologic history, has spectacular hiking trails, lots less rain, and usually a good supply of sunshine.  Join us to get some exercise, fresh air, and to see spring come to the east side of the Cascade mountains.  There might be some poision oak to avoid and occasional ticks to brush off your clothes, but the scenery here is completely worth it!  We’ll hike up to some stunning viewpoints above the Columbia River.
