Oregon's Columbia River Gorge windsurfing is world renowned. Sailboarders gather in Hood River and The Dalles to ride the westerly winds. The majestic backdrop of Mt. Hood is a reminder of the hiking, camping and skiing activities available in the Gorge area. The unusually diverse botanical flora attracts hikers on spring wildflower treks. Multnomah Falls is just one of the many spectacular waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge region. Some of the falls are close to the highway, while others can be reached by hiking on scenic Gorge trails.
