Hiking is definitely something you'll want to do while camping at Ainsworth State Park. By leaving the park on Nesmith Point trail, you'll end up with a splendid view of St. Peter's Dome, a majestic basalt monolith rising 2,000 feet above the mighty Columbia River.

Back at the campground, you'll find 45 peaceful full-service campsites canopied in a laid-back, tree-filled setting. There are also four walk-in tent sites for a more primitive camping experience. This is a classic campground ... the smell of a campfire is your constant companion. Flush toilets, showers, a camp host, firewood and an amphitheater with interpretive programs are all here. Top it off with a roaring creek at the east end of the park, and you have all the makings for a great camping trip.

Vital Stats: Open March - November. The campground provides 45 full hookup sites(maximum site 60 feet) and 4 walk-in tent sites (accommodates primitive tent camping with nearby parking area).<\/p>","post_name":"ainsworth-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5923","lng":"-122.057","distance":"4.8","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/ainsworth-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"5515","post_title":"Guy W.

A modern picnic shelter is available for rent (and is reservable). While the park is terrific for a group or family picnic, the park is often uncrowded even on the best days because of its seclusion. A gently sloping grassy hill dotted with Port Orford cedars, Douglas firs, alders and maples invites Frisbee tossing and quiet relaxation.

The tiny town of Latourell (pop. 12) borders the north side of the park. Homeowners ask that visitors please respect their privacy. A trail underneath the Historic Columbia River Highway bridge leads directly to Latourell Falls (250' tall), only a few minutes away by foot.

Rooster Rock features a large beach, a boat ramp and basin on the Columbia River, a nature trail with exhibits, a clothing optional beach and a group picnic area.

Three miles of sandy beaches bring out the crowds in the summer. One of the largest swimming areas near Portland serves visitors who want a natural experience. It's even more natural the further east you go at Rooster Rock (where you'll find one of Oregon's two designated nude beaches). By design, the nude beach area is completely separate and not visible from the clothing-required area of the large park. The two areas coexist in harmony.

Fall colors blaze at Rooster Rock. For an easy hike, try the 2 mile Volkswalk trail at the east end of the park. The trails will be covered with huge maples and oaks as you take a flat hike above the Columbia River. Blacktail deer, swordgrass and mushrooms grow large in the beautiful forests and meadows along this trail.

Wintertime at Rooster Rock State Park can be challenging, but it's paradise to those who love life on the edge. Windsurfers know this -- they come here when others stay away. When east winds barge down the Columbia Gorge at 25 to 40 mph, windsurfers come out of the woodwork to ride the whitecaps on the Columbia River. Winter wind speeds at Rooster Rock have been measured at 110 mph. In the winter, Rooster Rock becomes the gateway to winter recreation in the Gorge and the Cascades.

Just as the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom, the Vista House serves as the symbol of the Columbia River Gorge. In fact, the architect of the Vista House -- Edgar Lazarus -- and Emma Lazarus (who wrote the poem of the Statue of Liberty), were brother and sister.

Millions of visitors driving from from Portland through the Columbia River Gorge don't realize the full impact of its beauty until they come around the bend near Corbett at exit 22 and see the famous building on the top of the cliff to the right. This is Crown Point and the building is the Vista House.

The Vista House was built in 1916 at the same time as Highway 30 (what is now the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway, and the only way to reach Crown Point). The building was designed to be a place of refreshment and enjoyment of the Columbia Gorge. The octagonal building with its copper dome now houses a museum, gift shop and interpretive display of historic and geologic points of interest in the Gorge (the building is open from March-October).

It has survived many years wear and tear from millions of visitors and pounding gales of the east wind (sometimes measured here at 110 mph). The future of the Vista House is now in the hands of the Friends of the Vista House, who are trying to raise over $2 million for a long-overdue restoration.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. For information, call 1-800-551-6949 or (503) 695-2261. Crown Point offers picnicking, historic buildings, a museum, historic and interpretive displays, interpretive displays, and opportunities for viewing scenery.<\/p>","post_name":"crown-point-vista-house","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.538","lng":"-122.247","distance":"10.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/oregon-adventurecation\/crown-point-vista-house\/","terms":"a

The Sandy Ridge trail area brings a welcome resource to the west side of Mt. Hood – it’s an easy drive from Portland, and the trails were all recently built and designed for flow. The trails are low enough on the mountain to stay open about 10 months a year; they’re designed to drain water and hold up to mud.<\/p>\r\n

There are currently 6.5 miles of trails open, with a long-term goal of 16-18 miles of single-track.<\/p>\r\n

Hide and Seek is an intermediate, four-mile descent dropping from an elevation of 2,280 feet to 1,120 with roots, rocks, rollers and jumps built into the trail. Laura’s Loop is a 0.75-mile beginner circuit near the gate with smooth, easy trails but some moderate inclines.<\/p>\r\n

Recent additions include a bridge over Little Joe Creek and a brand-new section of trail. A new, 2.25-mile loop has been added to the Three Thirty Eight trail, including a technical, rock-drop section (there’s a bypass for riders who want to stay less technical).<\/p>\r\n

Latourell Falls is usually the first waterfall seen along the Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway. Because of this, it usually leaves quite an impression on first-time visitors. The falls plunge 224 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt – some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest – before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to give this location their treatment.

The western trailhead leads across to Eagle Creek, offering a great connection, especially for equestrians. It also junctions in less than 0.1 miles to a trail that heads up to Eagle Creek Butte. The Douglas Trail continues through the forest for 1.4 miles until it reaches the rough access road (Lee's Ranch Road) to the Eagle Creek Trail. Following this trail downhill for approximately one mile leads to the Eagle Creek Trail.

From the eastern trailhead, the trail climbs in the forest one-half mile until a clear-cut is reached. It is best to check with the Zigzag Ranger District for current information regarding logging as the trail may be impassable. A year round stream, providing the only water on the trail, is located one mile from the trailhead. The trail then climbs until an active rock quarry is reached at 1.9 miles.

The Sandy River Delta, particularly its E side, is a unique area of extensive open habitat near the mouth of the Columbia Gorge. As such, it draws birds that are otherwise hard to find in the northern Willamette Valley. In late spring thru summer look for nesting Red-eyed Vireo, Yellow Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Lazuli Bunting and Bullock's Oriole. Eastern Kingbirds reach the western limit of their documented breeding range on the E side of the delta. Many intermontane-region vagrants such as Sage Thrasher and Mountain Bluebird have been found. The delta also includes access to reclaimed wetlands which now host Sora and Virginia Rail, Cinnamon Teal, and Solitary Sandpiper (in migration). In winter, look for Northern Shrike and check sparrow flocks for rarities such as Harris' Sparrow. River views at the ends of the trails are good for loons, grebes, and diving ducks in winter. A though-provoking \"bird blind\" sculpture designed by Maya Lin can be reached via a 1.2 mi trail from the parking area.

The Columbia Slough is a nearly 20-mi chain of narrow waterways and ponds that stretches almost continuously from Kelly Point (at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers) to Fairview Lake in Fairview. Metro and the City of Portland have restored this urbanized landscape so that it now supports river otters, painted turtles, dragonflies, and more than 170 species of birds. The best season for a paddle trip is late spring, when the woods are buzzing with life and water levels are still high. By mid-summer, water levels drop and aquatic vegetation can make paddling difficult. Additional access points to the Columbia Slough include Site P4, and a canoe launch and trail at 166th and Airport Way (next to the Portland Water Bureau's pumping station) which features a pond with waterfowl, and woodlands that host songbirds. For a longer paddle trip, you can launch at Kelley Point park, at the far W end of Marine Dr (W of P1) from which you can paddle up the slough, or out into the Willamette River. A guide for paddlers and canoeists is available from the Columbia Slough Watershed Council (www.columbiaslough.org).

Parking areas all along the way offer many viewing points, but one of the most popular birding destinations is Broughton Beach (3 mi E of I-5, just past Salty's Restaurant).

The portion of the trail from Devil's Meadow to East Zigzag climbs through open areas bordered with beargrass and rhododendrons.

The lake itself is located in a deep basin in which noise echoes and travels to such a degree that a barking dog can impact everyone's experience. A loop trail around the lakeshore is spattered with colorful wildflowers.

From the lake, the trail steeply descends a rugged slope until it enters an area of severe blowdown which occurred over a period of three years. Use extreme caution because of potential fire hazard.

A large system of trails covers this 600-ac volcanic butte, looping through scrub\/savanna on the top, to dark forested flanks that host species for the novice and advanced birder alike. Specialty birds include nesting Lazuli Bunting and Western Kingbird in summer, Short-eared Owl in winter, and a variety of raptors in all seasons. The summit, 350 ft above the surrounding city, can be reached via a 0.75 mi paved trail from the parking area.

From E Powell Blvd, between Portland and Gresham, turn S on 162nd Ave and drive 0.5 mi up the short, steep road to the gravel parking area. Transit: Take TriMet Bus 9-Powell to SE Powell & 164th Ave, walk 0.1 miles W to NE 162nd.<\/p>","post_name":"powell-butte-nature-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4783","lng":"-122.497","distance":"29.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/powell-butte-nature-park\/","terms":"an

Hood and the floral displays in the meadows make the first 4.2 miles of the uphill hiking through the forest worthwhile. The only year round water sources on this trail are found at a stream crossing the trail at 2.9 miles and at a tiny spring located approximately 10 feet below the trail at the four mile point. Essentially, the trail switchbacks up the ridge offering a few scattered views until 4.2 miles when it comes through an open meadow area near the edge of the Sandy River Canyon. Here, the view is dominated by the Reid Glacier. The trail traverses up the slope until a viewpoint of the Muddy Fork Canyon and Sandy Glacier is reached. Here the formal maintained trail ends and a \"climbers' trial\" continues.","post_name":"yocum-ridge-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3799","lng":"-121.776","distance":"29.8","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/yocum-ridge-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6730","post_title":"Ramona Falls Trail","post_content":"Starting from the lower trailhead, the Ramona Falls Trail follows the Sandy River and comes close to the Road 1825-100 at times. The junction with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000 (PCNST) is reached at approximately 1.5 miles from the trailhead sign. The PCNST heads southeast and leads to the Sandy River, Paradise Park and then Timberline Lodge in just under 10 miles. Heading northeast, the PCNST and the Ramona Falls Loop coincide until the falls are reached.

The falls area provides a cool environment for a pause before your return trip. Crossing Ramona Creek on a foot bridge, the trail soon passes the second junction with the PCNST. Short sections of this portion of the loop have large, exposed roots left as a result of repetitive winter flood damage. Half a mile before the end of the loop, the trail connects to the Bald Mountain Trail #784. At this junction, there are several group camp sites with fire rings.

The last leg of the loop crosses Ramona Creek and returns to the bridge over the Sandy River. Hikers objecting to sharing the route with horses will want to travel the Ram\u00f3n Creek portion of the loop both directions to and from the falls.","post_name":"ramona-falls-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3798","lng":"-121.776","distance":"29.9","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/ramona-falls-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7047","post_title":"Lazy Bend Campground","post_content":"Located southeast of Estacada on the Clackamas River, Lazy Bend Campground offers 21 camp sites at 800 feet elevation.
