Columbia Riverin northwestern Oregonin the United States. Approximately 25 mi (40 km) long from its mouth to its farthest headwaters on the East Fork, the river descends from wilderness areas in the Cascade Rangeon Mount Hoodand flows through the agricultural Hood River Valleyto join the Columbia Riverin the Columbia River Gorge.
It rises in three separate forks on the north side of Mount Hood, within the
Mount Hood Wildernessin Hood River County which is approximately 50 mi (80 km) east of Portland.
* The West Fork, approximately 15 miles (24 km) long, rises on northwestern Mount Hood from Ladd Glacier. It flows generally ENE and joins the East Fork from the west near Dee.
* The Middle Fork, approximately 10 mi (16 km) long, rises in several short branches on the north slopes of Mount Hood, from Coe Glacier and Eliot Glacier. It flows north through the upper
Hood River Valley.
* The East Fork, approximately 15 mi (24 km) long, rises on the eastern side of the mountain in the
Mount Hood National Forestfed by Newton-Clark Glacier, and flows northward into the Upper Hood River Valley, where it is joined by the Dog River and then by the Middle Fork.
