Enjoy the landscape Yeon sculpted for the sole purpose of relishing the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge on one of our periodic tours. Walk the manicured paths, absorb the captured views of Multnomah Falls, and enjoy the place that inspired the creation of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Join the Yeon Center membership for the annual Picnic at The Shire.
