The 85-mile (137-km) long Columbia Gorge NSA would be a national park if it weren’t a critical transportation corridor. In the early 1900s, Portlanders would drive their Model T cars along the Columbia River Highway to gaze at waterfalls. It was the first scenic highway built in America. There is said to be over 4000 waterfalls; many are hidden away, but many are just a short hike off the Historic Highway. On this tour you’ll explore the western, rainforested, southern side of the Gorge, dubbed “waterfall alley” where we’ll have you getting wet under a waterfall, peering over cliffs, and learning stories of the area only the locals know. Pickup is at Director Park.
