VANCOUVER — With determination and careful planning, the Columbia River Gorge is set to become a worldwide hiking destination that could give a big economic boost to businesses in Gorge communities.
Trails that take tourists through meadows bursting with wildflowers and paths that give hikers a view of the Columbia River valley could even pass through a vineyard, where visitors could sample local wines. After a long day of hiking, tourists could trek down for dinner at one of the towns along the Gorge and spend the night at a bed and breakfast.
