    I went last year and I got an exclusive tour of the park and helped plant trees. It was great I would recommend. This is like real nature.

    So gorgeous. You must stop and take in the view. It’s not far from Vancouver WA, and so worth it because it’s also a beautiful drive amongst the trees.

    Perfect entrance to the Columbia Dike Trail. Easy walk with lots of folks and dogs out on the trail.

    This hike can be done as a 7-mile loop during some parts of the year (from February to July the lower part is closed to avoid disturbing nesting peregrine falcons). We were blessed with a beautiful sunny afternoon in late November and were able to enjoy some beautiful views along the trail.

    There was mud in a few parts, with one short section quite muddy and slippery, but mostly the trail was in good shape. We walked the loop counterclockwise (starting with the high/right fork right as the trail starts) and there were also some fairly rocky sections towards the end. The last mile or so of the loop is on a road - with minimal traffic, only one car passed us.

    Parking on this nice day was a little difficult - the main trailhead lot was full and cars were parked for half a mile or more up the road. We arrived around noon, and waited for about 15 minutes and someone returned to their car and left an available spot. Parking is also possible (and looked more open when we walked through) at the Upper Trailhead (on Strunk Road) or along the Cape Horn Road that you walk at the end.

    We hiked at a moderate but fairly brisk pace and finished in just over 3 hours, with a few stops along the way to admire and photograph the scenery. Overall this was a beautiful Columbia Gorge hike.

    They have thousands of old photographs of people, community, businesses, farms, mill, horses, trains, old wagons and cars, school's, band and sporting pictures. Great little center with very nice people to help you find what you are looking for. For a small donation they are willing to let you use some of the photos.

    As summer heats up... the coolness of the forest and the beach of the Columbia river are hard to beat.

    Just be careful, and remember the toilets are usually a long way away.

    A cemetery dating to 1889, it is accessed via a short path located near the historic marker sign. The small plots are in a wooded area, it's very lush and green. It feels like it is being slowly overgrown, this is not a manicured place.

    It's an apple orchard, a riverside hike, a picnic ground, all wrapped into one! I don't know the history here, but someone planted apples long ago. The trees are still there, framing the Columbia River Gorge. A mile-long circle gives you an opportunity to walk off your picnic. Best of all? almost no one else there.

    Washougal River CrossFit has knowledgable coaches, challenging classes, and a great community! All workouts are scalable and can be adapted for all levels. The community is inclusive and supportive of everyone! I have been going to this gym for 6 years, and love it. My whole family works out here! I highly recommend you stop on by and try a free class.

    We just went to the Pro Races this weekend. We go every year. Roxen(not sure how to spell his name) and Bubba Stewart were racing. If you are going to go to this event get there early. Traffic is pretty congested on this windy road. So if the race starts at 1pm get there at 9am. They have concessions and things to see before the races. People from all over come to race and enjoy these races. The track is out in the country and really pretty. My kids used to race here. The People running the track are super cool and the track is great. You are able to camp here for I think all events....but not positive. We did stay the night once for a regular race weekend and had a great time w/other race families. The river is close by and Sat I saw that you could rent inner tubes to go down the river. Beautiful area.
