The magnificent Multnomah Falls is just one of many natural, cultural,
and recreational attractions in the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area.
The 80-mile-long gorge contains diverse ecosystems ranging from the lush
Oneonta Gorge Rain Forest to the arid Celilo Grasslands. Expertly
researched and created in partnership with local land management
agencies, National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Columbia River
Gorge provides an unparalleled tool for exploring this breathtaking
region. Some of the key areas of interest featured on the map include
the White Salmon, Klickitat, Sandy, and Lower Deschutes rivers; Yacolt
Burn State Forest; Maryhill, Columbia Hills, and Rooster Rock state
parks; Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness; and portions of Mount Hood and
Gifford-Pinchot national forests.
With miles of clearly marked
trails including the Pacific Crest National Trail and the Oregon
National Historic Trail, and such scenic roadways as the Historic
Columbia River Highway and Yakima Scenic Byway, this map will prove
invaluable whether you’re taking in the scenery on foot or by car. A
helpful list of waterfalls makes it easy to take in these natural
wonders in your travels. Many recreation features are noted as well,
including campgrounds, trailheads, interpretive trails, boat launches,
and areas for fishing, windsurfing, and swimming. The map base includes
contour lines and elevations for summits.
