We contemplated going to Oneonta Gorge but hesitated a bit by the descriptions of the hike over wet logs and walking in water. In the end, the decision was made for us, as the access road was closed due to heavy rain and landslides in...More

our beautiful Columbia Gorge is ruined by a teenager arsonist from Vancouver, Washington. Right now 32,000 acres are on fire. It won't recover in my lifetime.

This is a nature special short hiking trail, around 1 mile we guess. It's not far away but not only walking, and will take you around 60-90 mins for having fun. As you could see in the photos, there are big woods and water, so...More

I think you will still thoroughly enjoy yourself. The gorge is stunning. Just be mindful of rain and don’t get caught in too high of water after a heavy rain . Getting a little cold and wet, is worth the effort to see this... More
