This is a short hike, but absolutely amazing. The hike is through the water, so bring proper attire. There is a large log jam, which means a long line to get started, but you can go around the jam and under water to bypass.

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
