At first glance, Estacada is your stereotypical Oregon oasis: tree-covered parks, a gushing scenic river, a local craft breweries, a weekly farmers market and strangers who quickly become friends. But this woodsy city, just 30 miles southeast of Portland, is anything but ordinary. Known as the “gateway to the Clackamas River,” Estacada is a one-stop shop for wilderness, culture and community. It’s a historic city ready to be re-discovered.
