Fifteen Mile Creek Professional Review and Guide
"This technical singletrack ride is one of the best in the Hood River Valley. Highlights include and exhilarating 5-mile descent, stunning views of Mount Hood, and a tough climb back to your starting point. Trail surface: Singletrack. One of the most scenic areas in Oregon (not to mention most popular; it’s visited by thousands each year) is the 3,000-foot-deep Columbia River Gorge, declared a National Scenic Area in 1986.
This picturesque gorge, flanked with evergreen and deciduous forests, is brimming with bubbling creeks, cascading waterfalls, and lush hiking trails. The mile-wide Columbia River is the dividing line between Oregon and Washington. Its present-day course through the Columbia River Gorge was carved by catastrophic floods that occurred during the last Ice Age over 15,000 years ago."
