Born of glacial ice on Oregon’s highest summit, the Sandy River flows for more than 50 miles on its way to the Columbia. Captain Clark (of Lewis and Clark fame) attempted to wade it back in november of 1805 but, as he noted in his journal, to his dismay he “found the bottom a quick sand and impassable.” But you don’t need to worry about crossing the Sandy when you have miles of lovely trail to hike beside it in this 1200-acre park. A small gorge, big trees, inviting sand bars, and high bluffs are added incentives.
