DescriptionCorbett is east of the Sandy River, whose waters come from the melting glaciers on the south slope of Mt. Hood. “The smelt are running in the Sandy” is a common refrain in the spring, when millions of the small, oily fish ascend the river to spawn. Impromptu anglers cast aside their poles in favor of buckets and other imaginative snares to catch the fish.
A scenic portion of US 30 passes through Corbett and Crown Point State Scenic Viewpoint. Scenic I-84 parallels the Columbia River from Troutdale 150 miles east to Boardman.
