Threemile and Sixmile Canyons ...
Threemile and Sixmile Canyons are located in Morrow County, Oregon, and lie at Columbia River Miles (RM) 255.5 and RM 259 respectively. Downstream is Willow Creek (RM 252.5) and upstream is the historic town of Castle Rock. Further upstream is the Oregon community of Boardman. On the Washington side of the Columbia lies Alder Creek. Both Threemile Canyon and Sixmile Canyon were named because of their distances from the mouth of Willow Creek.
