Goldendale Travel Guide

Bursting with history, and located at the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, Goldendale is rich beautiful scenery -- from farmland and vineyards to the wonderful backdrop of Mount Adams. The rural town is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts or travelers looking to soak up a little culture.

Things to Do in Goldendale

Top sites in Goldendale include the Presby Museum, home of the Klickitat County Historical Society, where visitors can learn more about the days of the Pioneers. Elsewhere, Maryhill Museum of Art has a wonderful collection of works including extensive Native American art.

For outdoor adventures, try the hiking trails at two state parks along the Little Klickitat River and through the pine forests with wonderful sweeping mountain views. Alternatively, the Klickitat Trail is an old rail trail that once linked Goldendale to the town of Lyle, and the hike here is stunning as it winds alongside the river and ends passing through a remote canyon. Fishing is popular in Goldendale too, boasting freshwaters perfecting for catching salmon and steelhead.

After a long day exploring, be sure to sample some of the local grapes at one of the wineries and vineyards -- Goldendale is part of the flourishing Columbia River Gorge wine region.
