Explore the Gorge! In Russ Schneider’s just released, updated version of Hiking the Columbia River Gorge, you’ll have armchair access to 54 of the most memorable hikes that begin at the Columbia River Gorge. The Columbia River Gorge, a canyon of the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest that stretches for over eighty miles as the river winds westward through the Cascade Range, forms the boundary between the state of Washington to the north and Oregon to the south, and this guide covers some of the trails from just outside of Portland to The Dalles. You’ll find essential details such as directions to the trailhead, distance, difficulty, approximate hiking time, best season to experience, elevation profile, and more. There’s a handy map overview, a summary of the hikes by group (level of difficulty, waterfall hikes, backpacking trips, etc.), and lovely pictures throughout to entice you into exploring this area of the PNW. Get the lay of the land and enjoy the outdoors with Hiking the Columbia River Gorge!
