What You Can Expect
When you arrive the Columbia River Gorge, hop on your bike and follow your guide on an easy, 10-mile (16-km) ride along gentle hills. This ride will give you a sense of what it was like to travel along the country’s first National Scenic Highway.
You’ll make several stops at waterfalls to embark on short nature hikes, where you’ll feel the cool, pulsing mist of water from amidst the lush green forest. Keep an eye out for native birds such as osprey and bald eagles.
Small snacks are available throughout your tour, and you may also bring food and drinks with you aboard the van. After soaking in the Pacific Northwest’s famous natural landscapes, you’ll be taken back to your Portland hotel.
Our tour guide, fellow biker and all around organizer was Sam. He's the kind of person you hope leads this type of tour. He was flexible with our stops, and just an all around nice guy. The bits of history that we got at each stop added nicely to the tour. There were four of us on the tour, from the very fit to the not so fit. All of us felt comfortable with the physical requirements of the hikes and rides. The hikes were small ones--the toughest one being the incline that takes you half way up Wahkeena Falls. Even that wasn't difficult. The bike rides were broken up in between visiting six different waterfalls. There is some truly beautiful country to be seen on this tour! There are longer hikes that can be had at some of the falls, hikes that would be too long for this kind of tour. But, it left us all feeling like there was more for us to explore if we ever came back. Can't say enough positive things about this experience! It was the highlight of our quick girls' trip to Portland!
Great trip and beautiful scenery. Scotland was an enthusiastic and fun guide. Only complaint is that we were told on the phone that no water or snacks would be provided or available for purchase during the tour, so we went out and bought our own. When we got on the bus, Scotland said there were filled water bottles and snacks on the bus for everyone, after all.
