Paddling through the Holgate Slough

Ross Island is an oasis of nature surrounded by the city. More than 100 species of birds use the island during their annual migrations. It is also a working landscape: for much of the last century. While mining ceased in the 1990s, sand and gravel from other sites are still processed on Ross Island. Parts of the island are now under the management of Portland Parks and Recreation.

Floating down the Sandy River.

The Sandy River is one of only a handful of Oregon waterways whose entire lengths have been declared navigable — from its headwaters on Mount Hood’s Reid Glacier to its entry into the Columbia River just east of Portland. Portland Monthly shows us how to enjoy the closest wild and scenic river to Portland.
