As you may already know, Carson Hot Springs Golf & Spa resort is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the Pacific Northwest, right along the Columbia Gorge. It’s a historic region with incredible scenery and we’re proud to be a part of it. But there are reasons to visit us and the Gorge other than the benefits of going to our authentic hot springs spa. Here’s why we think you should hike the Columbia Gorge.
It’s good for your heart
Any type of aerobic exercise is good for you. Hiking is great for getting your heart pumping and strengthening it while promoting blood circulation. Getting frequent aerobic exercise is key to prevent heart disease and maintaining weight. So why not get your exercise in a fun way by hiking at the Columbia Gorge?
It good for your mental health
Studies have shown again and again that spending time in nature is good for your mental health. It can ease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and ADHD, as well as boost your mood overall, regardless of any mental conditions you may have. Soak in nature by hiking at the Columbia Gorge for the ultimate mental health day.
It has incredible waterfalls
The Columbia Gorge is home to countless waterfalls that you won’t want to miss out on during your visit here. At varying heights, these waterfalls are all beautiful, if not positively breathtaking. Plus, you don’t necessarily have to go on a long hike to see them. Even some of the easier trails can lead you past waterfalls. The waterfalls alone would inspire us to go hiking!
