Discover the Outdoor Beauty and Recreational Opportunities of Gaston, Oregon
Located in the southwestern part of the county, the small city of Gaston (population under 700) is the smallest city in Oregon’s Washington County. The city was named for Joseph Gaston, an early Oregon pioneer who worked on the railroad, was lawyer, journalist and history.
Despite its small population, there is no shortage of places to visit in northern Gaston.
Agriculture reigns supreme, as Gaston is home to four acclaimed wineries, each producing a variety of wines, including Pinot Noir, from their estate vineyards.
With miles of outdoor recreation opportunities, cyclists, bird-watchers, hikers, swimmers and boaters enjoy the recreational areas such as Henry Hagg Lake and Scoggins Valley Park, a popular spot for triathlons and other endurance sports. Visitors also flock to the region’s first aerial ropes course and zip- line park, Tree to Tree Adventure Park, located minutes from the lake.
