The Eagle Creek fire has closed most trails from Cascade Locks to Troutdale.

We are Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the only non-profit organization dedicated entirely to ensuring that the
beautiful and wild Columbia Gorge remains a place apart, an unspoiled treasure for generations to come.

Get Involved

Friends’ conservation work is driven by members, volunteers, and activists. There are many ways to join our community of Gorge enthusiasts. Here are some ways to get started:
