Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge, 2nd Edition is the perfect guide for exploring the breathtaking beauty of one of the most popular hiking destinations near the Portland–Vancouver metro area. Updated and expanded and now with full-color photos, this new edition offers accessible trails; and trails to historical destinations, wildflowers, waterfalls, old-growth forests, and sun-kissed rolling hills. With his trademark enthusiasm and expertise, author Craig Romano leads hikers to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Silver Star Scenic Area, Trapper Creek Wilderness, Cottonwood Canyon State Park and some select hikes along the Columbia east of the Gorge, with explorations of national forests and wilderness areas, state forests, state parks, county parks, city parks, and national wildlife refuges.
Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge also contains all of the information hikers have come to count on in the Day Hiking series: an overall rating of each hike’s unique qualities, difficulty score, crowd rating, mileage, elevation gain, best season, and more. An at-a-glance guide to the hikes also makes it easy for hikers to narrow down their choices and find just the right adventure for the day.
