Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club


The Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club is providing public shows of the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad on November 29th and November 30th, 2014. With a 5,000 foot route from one end to the other it takes a model train more than 25 minutes to travel along the Columbia River Gorge. Don't worry you won't have to wait half an hour to see a train go by, they typically have 8 trains running at the same time. It is only $6 for adults and $2 for kids from ages 3 to 11, and will provide hours of entertainment. Read more about the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad below.
It's a breathtaking sight to walk into the building on N. Vancouver Avenue and immediately become immersed in the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge. The layout, which has been built upon since the building's construction in 1982, depicts scenes from a 1950s Portland and beyond, complete with a miniature Union Station built off of the 1893 building's actual blueprints.

Double Mountain Horse Ranch


Horse back riding is good for your health, it is fun and it provides a way to see sights you never would have seen otherwise. Double Mountain Horse Ranch is located in Hood River where they provide guided group tours. Read about their 'Above the Columbia River Gorge Tour' below.
This horseback riding tour stages in a private meadow on the far west side of the Hood River Valley. Starting below the forest, our trail gently climbs steadily upward. We’ll enter the deep shade of mature trees, moving along fern grottos and cascading streams, to views high above the Columbia River Gorge. Weather permitting we’ll ride the TeePee trail, a now private forest trail once traveled by Native American pioneers.

Wrangler’s Note – We’ll get your photo with the Mitchell Point Overlook from up high! Cowboy up, we’ll bring loaner boots and riding helmets if requested in advance.
