Located in southern Washington State, in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, the Klickitat Trail follows the first 31 miles of an old railroad corridor linking the towns of Lyle and Goldendale.
Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area – South Jetty Area
Formed by the ancient forces of wind, water and time, these dunes are like no others in the world. This is the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America and part of the Siuslaw National Forest. Visitors enjoy thick “tree islands,” open dunes, marsh-like deflation plains and beaches. It’s an area of adventure, education, solitude or relaxation.
