The 72nd Annual Roy Webster Columbia River Cross-Channel Swim.

Welcome to the annual Hood River County Chamber of Commerce event, the Columbia River Cross-Channel Swim. The swim originated in 1942 when local orchardist Roy Webster challenged himself and some friends to swim across the river--and it's been happening ever since.<\/p>\r\n

On the day of the swim, participants board the Sternwheeler in the wee hours of the morning to be ferried across the river. When signaled, swimmers jump into the \"refreshing\" Columbia and head back to the Oregon shore.

The 1980 movie – The Shining – used aerial shots of Timberline Lodge as part of its opening scene, and exterior footage for some establishing shots of the fictional Overlook Hotel throughout the movie.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent—a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy. 

Built in 1936 as a home for skiers and climbers, Timberline is today home to North America's longest ski season. In the height of winter, the ground floor of the lodge is typically fully buried in snow, with entry through a snow tunnel, or directly into the second floor. The lodge together with its cozy rooms, two resident St. Bernards (Bruno and Heidi) pub and restaurant, is a welcome relief after a full day on the slopes.

After another mile, a rock outcrop occurs to the left of the trail. This overlook (Inspiration Point) provides a fine view into Coe Branch Canyon and of Mount Hood. The trail continues climbing, steeply at times, until just before reaching a shallow stream. Typically in mid-July the ground beneath the large conifers is white with a carpet of Avalanche Lilies. After crossing the stream, the trail makes several short, gentle switchbacks up a broad ravine to reach a junction with the Timberline trail on the edge of the cove. The remains of a stone shelter are located just a few yards to the southeast. The broken and bleached snags that make the cove attest to the power and frequency of avalanches thundering down from Barret Spur. To reach the summit of Barret Spur, take the Timberline trail west. After rounding the ridge, the trail traverses above a talus slope and the ground above the trail becomes less steep. An unmarked trail follows a shallow depression to Dollar Lake.
From the lake, climb the ridge to the summit at 7,853'. Depending on the time of year, the ridge can be rocky, snowy, icy or a combination of all three.

Wildflowers, including asters, paintbrush, rhododendron and cinquefoil are located in the meadow areas along the lake shore and on the trail to Tom Dick Ridge. Huckleberries can be found on the east side of the slope.","post_name":"mirror-lake-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3059","lng":"-121.792","distance":"26.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/fishing\/hiking\/mirror-lake-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7153","post_title":"Horseshoe Ridge Trail","post_content":"The Horseshoe Ridge Trail, starting from Road 1825-382 at the Wilderness Trailhead Information Board, the trail travels steadily uphill through the wooded sidehill utilizing a series of switchbacks.

The trail then follows the ridge until it ends at its junction with Zigzag Mountain Trail #775. The Zigzag trail can then be hiked to the west toward West Zigzag and Rhododendron or to the east toward Cast Lake, Cast Creek Trail #773, East Zigzag, Burnt Lake and Paradise Park.

A loop opportunity for both hikers and horses exists when combined with Cast Creek Trail #773 and Zigzag Mountain Trail #775. The loop is just over 10.5 miles starting from Riley Horse Camp and approximately 8.5 miles for hikers parking on Road 1825-382. A short car shuttle is necessary for those parking on Road 1825-382.","post_name":"horseshoe-ridge-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3507","lng":"-121.853","distance":"26.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/horseshoe-ridge-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7625","post_title":"Boulder Lake Campground","post_content":"There is a 1\/2 mile walk-in to the Boulder Lake campsites.

It also provides a pleasant alternative to hiking, biking or horseback riding along the shoulder of Highway 26. From Road 20 to 2639, the trail essentially follows along the south side of Highway 26 intersected by both Tollgate Campground and a variety of forest roads. The trail crosses Highway 26 4.6 miles from the beginning, following Road 2639 approximately 100 yards up its east (right) side. There, a yellow metal sign signifying the route of a buried cable indicates the point of continuation.

From 2639, the trail climbs via switchbacks into an open area, part of the 1952 Zigzag burn. The trail then begins to climb, levels off, crosses a saddle, then fluctuates until a scree slope is crossed. A dangerous abandoned mine shaft is passed 6.5 miles from the trailhead. A few hundred yards past the shaft, pass a short spur trail leading to Highway 26
to a point below the Barlow Road Historical Highway marker. From this point the Bridle Trail travels downhill under the old highway via a tunnel and along an abandoned section of road. Stay on the main route, traveling uphill, and cross a small stream twice. The trail switchbacks in a wet area where cedar logs and extensive drainage ditches halt erosion. A few hundred yards further, a wide spur trail to the east (left) leads to Enid Lake, a very shallow, muck bottomed pond.","post_name":"pioneer-bridle-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3082","lng":"-121.816","distance":"27.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/pioneer-bridle-trail\/","terms":"a
