Bridge of the Goddess

September 14th, 2019. Give the goddess in your life special treatment for a day. Gorge-ous course departs from the deck of Bridge of the Gods and spirits you away from it all on the historic Columbia River Highway Trail. If the inclines don’t take your breath away, the views from on high surely will. Supported and safe course is a great training run for fall marathons or a destination unto itself.
