Multnomah Falls

The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is a smorgasbord of wonderful hikes.  We haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the hikes that the gorge has to offer.

Nowhere else can you find this conglomeration of beautiful waterfalls, wonderful hiking trails, and fantastic scenery so close to the city.

On this portion of our site, you can find trail guides and reports about hiking in the Columibia River Gorge and the surrounding area, a huge selection of the best Pacific Northwest Trail Guides, a message board, history of the gorge, and tons of photos! 

So far this year, we've hit Gillette Lake, Mirror Lake, and Three Corner Rock, with more to come soon!
