September 9 - Day One
Day One: Dry Creek Falls. 4.4 miles 725 elevation gain. Arrive Portland International Airport for private ground transportation to the heart of the Columbia River Gorge area (90 min.) Today, you’ll start your hike by the Bridge of the Gods, an 1,858-foot-long steel-truss bridge which connects Oregon and Washington. You’ll be hiking a portion of the famed Pacific Crest Trail to a secluded amphitheater that houses the dry creek waterfall. Overnight at Cascade Motel, est. 1947 or similar. (D)
September 10 - Day Two
Day Two: Wahkeena Falls to Multnomah Falls Trail. 6 miles – 1,600 ft. elevation gain.  This trail is a waterfall lover’s paradise. There are six officially named waterfalls as well as countless cascades and intermittent falls. Towards the end of the hike, you’ll be high above the grand Multnomah Falls (Oregon’s tallest), where you can see all the people below at the viewing platforms, to which we’ll make our way down to for pictures. Overnight at Cascade Motel, est. 1947 or similar.  (B, D)
September 11 - Day Three
Day Three: Angels Rest Trail. This 4.8 mile out and back hike gains 1,500 feet in elevation as it climbs up to a blufftop viewpoint with incredible panoramic views of the gorge. It’s a workout with a big reward! There’s a bit of rock scrambling at the very top but if you’re not in the mood, you’ll still get incredible vistas of the Columbia River Gorge. Overnight at Cascade Motel, est. 1947 or similar. Afterwards, we’ll get cleaned up and get a taste of award-winning vintages, sun-soaked valleys and sprawling vineyards with amazing mountain views in the Hood River area. (B, D)
September 12 - Day Four
Day Four: Horsetail Falls to Oneonta Falls Trail. 3 miles. 350 ft. elevation gain. You’ll get a tall waterfall right at the trailhead on this hike.
