Half-Day Columbia River Gorge and Waterfall Hiking Tour

38 reviews
The 80 miles of the Columbia River Gorge’s steep rocky sides offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the world: pounding waterfalls, eagles, century-old trees, ferns, flowers, ancient rocks. This half-day of exploring and meditating on wonders with very short hikes and visits to overlooks and vistas will have you gasping in awe.<br><br>We'll visit waterfalls and overlooks, selected by our guides to include both the most iconic, like the unmissable Latourell Falls, a stunning plunge-style falls that is one of the most iconic in Oregon, and the special. Depending on weather conditions, this could include a few small hidden waterfalls and another spectacular plunge-style falls with columnar basalt.<br><br>We'll also tell you stories, not just of the geology and botany and the oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and animal spirits and the Beaver princess tragically turned into a waterfall.

It is very unfortunate the experience I had today at this beautiful place. My complaint is about the hired staff. We were a group of 3 mom's and our children looking forward to today's visit. The staff at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden clearly need training on how to speak to the public. The young man, who made nasty assumptions about us 3 mom's visiting with our children were unacceptable. The way in which he spoke to us about our children was done in the most rude way I have ever experienced. I strongly encourage whoever manages the staff at this facility to teach their employees how to properly, kindly, and respectfully speak to the general public with out making nasty assumptions about them and their children. How very unfortunate it is to make preconceived notions about people by being judgemental in the way that was expressed today. We did not end up vising the garden.

This place has very nice paths cross crossing the place. Beautiful scenery. Water features all over. Benches all over the place as well, so you can sit and take it all in. Just stunning to visit on a sunny day.

First off, this site wouldn't allow me to give this area more than a terrible rating - tried several times. As as a visiting non-resident, I really enjoyed this little park. It was very well kept. Other than the wood ducks, their really wasn't much to offer for wildlife photographers, though. A simple photo blind in front of a feeder station would lure in many species to the camera. And, it would be best to get input on it's layout from an actal photographer

No matter the season this garden is one of the most beautiful places in Portland. The main season for the rhododendrons is in May but there are different ones that bloom at various times of the year. The huge trees and variety of shrubs and flowers make a visit here at any time of the year an excellent choice.

Come here to enjoy nature. The Rhodies are beautiful when in bloom in spring. The pond is full of birds. So relaxing.
