Wilkes has a prime spot close to the thrilling Columbia River Gorge, a hotspot for outdoor activities that are simply awe-inspiring. Another gem located nearby is Troutdale, a quaint little town brimming with charm. It’s also home to an amazing outlet mall, McMenamin’s restaurant, and an entertainment venue. Traveling to downtown Portland is easy with access to I-215 and I-84. Just be mindful of rush hour traffic, which can add 40 minutes to your commute. Wilkes is rising fast in popularity, known as one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in all of Portland. One of the newest additions is the Wilkes Creek Natural Area, a project that took five years to complete but is well worth it. It offers locals a beautiful place for a stroll or a lovely spot for a picnic. That wasn’t always the case – before the area was added, Wilkes didn’t have any parks.
