Pendleton Woolen Mills

Visit the internationally-known woolen leader and take a tour of the Pendleton Woolen Mills to get a taste of how the products are made and why they are beloved by so many. Plus, you can pick up clothes, material, or the perfect wool blanket for that picturesque picnic later in the day!

Beacon Rock

One of the tallest monoliths in the country, this 898-foot tall viewing point atop the core of a volcano is located just 20 minutes east of Washougal on Highway 14 and truly captures the beauty of the Gorge. You can choose to enjoy the 9,500 feet of freshwater shoreline or hike the switchback trail with unparalleled views.

Immerse yourself in the history at the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum, take a hike or bike ride through the picturesque terrain, or grab a frosty pint at Walking Man Brewery in Stevenson. This small town nestled along the Columbia River Gorge offers an array of outdoor activities, historical attractions, and great food and drink.
