5 Beautiful Hiking Trails In Washington’s Columbia River Gorge, Where Spring Comes Early

Every part of Washington is beautiful, but there really is something special about the Columbia River Gorge. We’re incredibly lucky to share this area with Oregon, and in fact, some of the gorge’s best hikes can be found on the Washington side. And since this part of the state tends to show the first signs of spring, we thought we’d suggest a few hikes you can enjoy as early as April.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

There’s nothing like a good exhilarating hike, particularly in the PNW. Do you have a favorite spring trail in Washington?
