Rowena Plateau & Columbia River Gorge

Lava flows, floods, and volcanic ash deposits shaped the Rowena - sheer cliffs, basalt landforms, wide-stretching plateaus. At Rowena overlook, it's boots-on-the-ground exploration. Opt for a 2-mile roundtrip hike to the crest of Tom McCall Nature Preserve. Your reward: expansive views in every direction - including the river far below. Or, choose the steeper, 3.6 mile roundtrip Tom McCall point trail. On a cloudless day, your effort gaining 1,000 feet of elevation pays off with views of Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, and the Columbia River Gorge.
