Mt. Hood and Columbia Gorge

Mt. Hood and the Columbia Gorge is a popular recreation area east of Portland, Oregon. Mt. Hood itself has year round skiing and snowboarding while the forests below have plenty of hiking trails, campsites and hot springs. The Columbia Gorge, and Hood River in particular, are noted for wind surfing. The Gorge is formed where the Columbia River cuts through the Cascade Mountain range, an 80 mile section of which is designated as a National Scenic Area. This article covers the southern bank which is entirely within the state of Oregon.
