Named for the section of the Columbia River that narrows to 175 feet, this town is the true end of the Oregon Trail. The wagons stopped at the roaring rapids that churned here before the nearby dam was built. Once the only established military camp between Wyoming and the coast, this city is now known for lumber and aluminum production as well as agriculture. Ghosts of the famous pioneer path remain. Where the trail is untouched by development, you can still see wagon wheel ruts carved into the earth.
