Gorge Towns to Trails
Gorge Towns to Trails is an initiative to create a world-class trekking network encircling the Columbia Gorge. The 200-mile loop trail network would connect communities with recreation, promote alternative transportation options, and create contiguous parcels of protected lands that benefit wildlife. It also would serve as an innovative tool to disperse congestion at popular trailheads and introduce people to spectacular, but less visited, areas of the Gorge.
