It's beautiful and there is some much to see and do. Last year's fire took away some of the hiking and the Pacific Crest trail. Yet the gorge is still gorgeous. Come play in the gorge .

Take the time to get off the interstate highway and enjoy this beautiful part of the USA. Majestic power of the river and the marvelous mountains makes this a very special place.

We hiked on a very hot day, but the morning hike was cooled by breezes. The vistas were spectacular!

So much to do and so little time. From Kayaking on the river to hiking the many trails the Gorge is beautiful no matter what you choose. Opportunities for the whole family.

Family get together at the Gorge. Loved the hatcheries around. Enjoyed watching the gianormous sturgeons swimming at the own pace. Walterfalls were magnificent. Hikes to the waterfalls were worthwhile

Whether you are driving parallel to the river or indulge in forest trails, plethora of vista points await for you and get a glimpse of nature in its most primitive form. Deers, Bald eagles, etc are a common sight
