Bike and Hike: Columbia River Gorge Adventure from Portland
When you arrive the Columbia River Gorge, hop on your bike and follow your guide on an easy, 10-mile (16-km) ride along gentle hills. This ride will give you a sense of what it was like to travel along the country’s first National Scenic Highway.
You’ll make several stops at waterfalls to embark on short nature hikes, where you’ll feel the cool, pulsing mist of water from amidst the lush green forest. Keep an eye out for native birds such as osprey and bald eagles.
Small snacks are available throughout your tour, and you may also bring food and drinks with you aboard the van. After soaking in the Pacific Northwest’s famous natural landscapes, you’ll be taken back to Portland.

The tour was awesome. One of the highlights of my week in Portland. I arrived at the Pedal Bike Tours shop and was greeted by the friendly staff and outfitted with a bike, helmet and water bottle. They bring snacks and water refills on the tour. There was only one other person on the tour who was attending the same conference. While the tour size can vary from small to large, I was happy with the size as it was much more personal. Evan was our great tour guide. He drove us out to the Historic Columbia River Highway. We stopped at a fruit stand and picked up fresh berries. Next was the overlook and Crown Point Vista House. From here Evan unloaded the bikes, and we coasted downhill. Evan drove ahead, and we met at the next stop. I think we got back in the van once, but we biked from waterfall to waterfall with Evan meeting us at each stop. We saw Latourell Falls, Shepperds Dell, Bridal Veil Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Multnomah Falls, and Horsetail Falls. Quite a few of them had short hikes to reach the falls. Evan was knowledgeable about the history of the area, geology, plants and everything else. A walking encyclopedia. He says he doesn't look at his watch, or it stops being fun. He was very generous with his time, and we went an hour or two beyond the 5-hour tour. I recommended the tour to several other attendees who were staying on in Portland for a few days. Best day you will spend in Portland.
