The communities along the Historic Highway recognize that a coordinated effort to develop a complete system of Gorge Hubs will not only enhance the users’ experience by providing wayfinding information, bike fix-it stations and restrooms but will create the kind of collective impact necessary to achieve world-class status similar to other famous town-to-town trail systems.

A completed Historic Columbia River Highway with a coordinated system of Gorge Hubs will create a world renowned hiker/biker trail system that stretches 73 miles through a wonderland of natural beauty and will offer visitors a fascinating variety of small towns and unique downtown areas in which to eat, drink, sleep, play, and explore.  The Gorge Hub system will ensure that these visitors are welcomed into every community, that these visitors know where and what local services are available, that they can easily locate local attractions, and that they have the comforts they need to stay awhile in that downtown center. The Gorge Hub system will create a Historic Columbia River Highway adventure that families on day trips and seasoned cyclists on multi-day journeys can all enjoy.
