We have never taken an unhappy person home from the end of a tour spent hiking and biking in the Columbia River Gorge.
We are often asked to list our “favorite tour.” This question is as mercurial as a tour guide but the vast majority of these questions are answered with this exact tour. It’s a way to see the waterfalls of the Columbia Gorge in the most intimate and carefree manner possible: by bike and hike.
We transport our guests and bikes in comfortable vans, and our guides ride with our very small groups. You’ll get personal attention and the safest experience we can provide.
If conditions permit, this tour also visits Multnomah Falls — the most visited tourist attraction in Oregon.
After meeting at our shop, we’ll fit you for bikes and take about a 30 minute drive into the Columbia River Gorge, east of Portland. Here we’ll start at a stunning vista of the gorge, getting on our bikes and riding along the Historic Columbia River Highway to other viewpoints and points of interest. Five to eight miles (8 to 13 km) of biking along gentle, curving, scenic downhills leads us to a number of waterfall hikes (2-3 miles, 3-5 km in total). On some days, after our hike we’ll ride another two to three miles (3 to 5 km) to another beautiful viewpoint of the Columbia Gorge.
Our tour also provides the most active hiking and visits waterfalls you will not see on other tours, and we keep our tours to eight riders, for maximum safety and comfort. 4.5 – 5 hours, 6 – 10 miles biking and 2.5 miles hiking, $95.
