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":"1.3","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":"665195","post_title":"Bonneville Lock & Dam","post_content":"

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.

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

Cascade Locks was originally called Whiskey Flats. Home to more than 100 bars, saloons and bordellos at one point, the town’s name was changed before the locks were built in the late 1800s to accommodate steamboat travel (and races) up the Columbia to the inland empire. The local Sternwheeler Days celebrate this the second week of each July. Today the town is working to revitalize itself through tourism, boasting both history and some of the best windsurfing breezes on Earth. The Oregon Pony, the first railroad around the treacherous rapids, is exibited in the historic park next to the local museum. Visitors can imagine how life was back then as they watch local Indians dip-net salmon, and listen to their stories and way of life at the Festival of Nations celebrating their rich heritage on the Columbia.<\/p>","post_name":"cascade-locks","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6707","lng":"-121.888","distance":"15.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/oregon-adventurecation\/cascade-locks\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1661943","post_title":"City of Cascade Locks Public Parking Lot: Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Station","post_content":"","post_name":"city-of-cascade-locks-public-parking-lot-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6707","lng":"-121.888","distance":"15.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/city-of-cascade-locks-public-parking-lot-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"9155","post_title":"Hubbards Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"hubbards-guide-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3676","lng":"-121.997","distance":"16.8","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/hubbards-guide-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"9458","post_title":"Reds Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"reds-guide-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4931","lng":"-122.276","distance":"16.8","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/reds-guide-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"9117","post_title":"Hays Frederick H","post_content":"","post_name":"hays-frederick-h","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4393","lng":"-122.25","distance":"17.1","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/hays-frederick-h\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6947","post_title":"McIntyre Ridge Trail","post_content":"The McIntyre Ridge Trail climbs from the trailhead and passes through a BLM clear-cut.

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 ArtBack Artists’ Cooperative was formed in 1992 by nine professional artists who joined together for a local exhibition. Overwhelmed by the tremendous support for their first show, they realized they had the opportunity to play a major role in shaping the future of visual arts in this historic community while increasing civic pride. They are dedicated to bringing art into the local arena to benefit and educate the largest and most diverse population possible.<\/p>\r\n

They have instituted a popular mural tradition that has successfully brought together individuals, businesses and organizations, while creating lasting imagery that reflects and strengthens the proud achievements of our community. They have grown and are now recognized throughout the community as a vital force in the cultural and economic direction of the town.<\/p>\r\n

The annual Summer Celebration arts and music festival was created in 2000 to celebrate the ArtBack’s annual mural-in-a-weekend project, which takes place every fourth weekend in July.<\/p>\r\n

Some of the murals are historical to the community and others are just plain fun. Come on out to Estacada and experience them in person. The murals can be seen throughout the community; stop by the Chamber of Commerce or the local art gallery, The Spiral Gallery Cooperative, and pick up the Walking Tour Guide to the Murals and enjoy the stroll through the quaint and lovely town of Estacada! The guide gives you information about each mural and where it is located. Some of the murals are painted on panels that can be removed from the building for preservation. The ArtBack Artists accept donations for each mural, and your name will be painted on that mural’s plaque in appreciation.<\/p>","post_name":"murals-of-estacada","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.2896","lng":"-122.334","distance":"29.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/murals-of-estacada\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"109926","post_title":"Eagle Creek Golf Course","post_content":"

Trails spreading out from this day-use park lead onto adjacent National Forest Service land and connect to the Mt. Defiance and Starvation Ridge trails. Heading east, trek along a remnant of the Historic Columbia River Highway to Viento State Park and campground.

Planning is underway for trail improvements, including a repaving project that will make it accessible according to American Disability Act (ADA) standards. Other historic highway segments designed for trail use and accessible to people with disabilities are now open between Hood River and Mosier (Twin Tunnels segment) and from Cascade Locks north to the Tooth Rock Trailhead.

The waterfall at Starvation Creek, one of the few in this area of the gorge, is an elegant cascade admired by gorge travelers for thousands of years.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. Eastbound vehicle access only. Westbound sightseers can park at the trailhead at Viento and walk the two miles to the park.<\/p>","post_name":"starvation-creek-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6882","lng":"-121.689","distance":"29.7","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/starvation-creek-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7179","post_title":"Hidden Lake Trail","post_content":"Hidden Lake Trail climbs to the wooded lake through rhododendron bushes, which bloom in profusion in June.
