Our Nature Will Move You

Troutdale, Oregon is the Gateway to The Gorge - your small town destination on your journey through the endless natural experiences that are the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood. While originally established as a rail town, Troutdale was shaped by the advent of the automobile and the creation of America’s first scenic highway, the turn of the century tourist attraction. Visitors flock here from around the country for the region’s unparalleled outdoor amenities. Enjoying The Gorge means taking in the beauty along the Historic Columbia River Highway, where spectacular waterfalls drop from towering cliffs of volcanic basalt lifting up from the surrounding emerald green forest. Heading inland offers the thrill of skiing Oregon’s tallest mountain, Mt. Hood, or hiking and mountain biking through the surrounding wooded landscape!

Troutdale is also known for fun family events and a charming downtown featuring restaurants serving farm-to-table treats, boutiques full of unique treasures and art galleries. Visit Troutdale to enjoy a relaxing weekend playing on the river, shopping and dining. Or, stay in Troutdale to launch your next adventure in The Gorge.
