Fall Foliage in the Columbia Gorge and the Mt Hood National Forest
By: Mary Pellegrini
Columbia River Gorge was noted as the third best spot in a recent foliage destination list, right behind Aspen and the Catskills!! But we’ve known about the foliage show for a long time. Add the colors of the Mt Hood National Forest and the acres and acres of fruit trees and you will be in awe with the splendor. Nothing says “fall” like the blazing red, glimmering gold, and burnt-orange leaves that cover trees and crunch underfoot during the autumn months.
Bike or drive the backroads, hike the forests or sit in our gardens with a throw over your legs, a warming bonfire at your feet and watch the colors around you change. Stay midweek through October, avoid the fruit picking weekend crowds, take time to unwind and receive a lodging discount. Still some weekend rooms available. Check our online availability calender.
