8. Columbia River Gorge, Washington and Oregon

The rainfall in the great Northwest has its detractors, but the spectacular results of it are very evident here. America’s second largest river and overwhelmingly beautiful waterfalls are sights that no hiker could ever forget.

Angel’s Rest, Dog Mountain and Mount Defiance highlight plenty of trails available for all hiking levels along this 80 mile long canyon. But there are hundreds of trails in all areas of the gorge, so make sure you check all possibilities.
