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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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