Just minutes from Gresham lies the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, an 80-mile long passageway carved out over 12 million years ago with the most recognizable features of the Gorge taking shape during the Missoula floods some 13,000–15,000 years ago.

  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Mountain biking
  • Photography
