RunningGreat!

Very wide and well-maintained trail. Spectacular views of the Gorge. Waterfalls, animals, trees, and much more. Special thanks to the trail makers for making a gravel trail alongside the paved road.

Nature tripsFeeGreat!

This was a very well kept trail with beautiful views! It’s good for all ages and the tunnels are really cool. We also went off the south side of the parking lot on a different trail that had several small waterfalls before meeting back up with the road after a mile or so.

Great wife paved trail. Took our dog and stroller and had a great time. The toilets at the trail head we parked at were closed FYI. Terrific views of gorge.

Easy, paved path trail with lookout areas for the Columbia River. The tunnels are impressive. Trail continues for many miles, the portion on AllTrails stops at the next lookout past the tunnel. If you don't mind passing on the next lookout, then turnback after the concrete tunnel.

We went about 11 am. It’s mostly in the sun so was already hot. Pretty views. We walked up the trail to tunnels. Lots of bikers to watch out for

Great trail for family bike ride- although be prepared for some hills! We started at the west trailhead, closer to hood river, and bikes to the east trailhead and back- about 9 miles total. Nice views and although it was busy, never felt too crowded.

I went on a hiking hiatus but decided to explore the Gorge for hiking opportunities. This trail is 9 miles out and back (18 miles), and I could only complete half. The trail is flat and paved and you are more likely to see cyclists than hikers. Excellent views of the Columbia River and local landscape. When I'm feeling more adventurous, I'll come back to complete the full trip.

Walking

This is a very easy paved flat beautiful stroll along the Columbia. The only two bad things I can say about it is that it’s quite close to 84 so you do hear a lot of road noise and some bicyclists do go very very fast (which is really aggravating since otherwise this would be an ideal walk to let little kids ride their bikes or toddle along). The views of the gorge are unbeatable, the tunnels are fascinating, and we had a delightful time. Note: the parking is a little odd. You park past the trail head and walk down the road a ways to get to this hike. The trailhead right by the parking lot is for a different more aggressive hike.

Nice little walk and look forward to doing it again via bike. About 1.5 miles in there’s still snow on the ground so decided to turn around at that point.
