Welcome to one of America’s most beautiful and majestic treasures, the Columbia River Gorge. Congress designated the Columbia River Gorge as a National Scenic Area in 1986, to preserve and enhance its scenic, natural, culture and recreational resources. There’s no better way to experience the Gorge than on bicycle where breathtaking views keep you moving from one location to another.
