Don’t miss your chance to participate in this free challenge. There are 20 items to find and less than three months to find all of them. The rules are not extensive but include: you must stay on official trails, park in official parking lots, and not disrupt any of the sensitive cultural or natural resources. Read more about this challenge from Friends of the Columbia Gorge below.

The Columbia Gorge has been home to forests, wildlife, and changing communities for thousands of years. Our Histories & Mysteries Hike Challenge invites you to take a closer look. You’ll learn about geologic and historic features hidden in Gorge landscapes. Between March 15 and October 31, try to find all 20 items listed.
