Beautiful history, artwork, views.....a must see when visiting or passing through... they also have a nice little gift shop on site. There's a $2 parking fee, it's good for a YEAR! and it has coupons for local restaurants on the back..... visit, have a picnic there, take pics....get married there.... we did!

It was closed for repairs, even though I checked in advance and it was suppose to be open. The view was beautiful and we took the Cathedral Tree Trail.

Must stop for the view. On a clear day this spot is amazing. The view is 300 degrees of beauty. Do it.

Right now one can't go up in the Column, as they are renovating it. However just the view from there is worth the drive, to see the lay of the land, the bridges and rivers. I think it is supposed to be finished by August

Although the column is currently under renovation, a trip up to the column only takes a few minutes and even the parking lot renders some SPECTACULAR views of the area. Take the time and get the pics!

I've been here many times, but it is currently under construction. They tried to get me to pay $2 just to park and see white wrapping around the scaffolds. I'll pay when I can actually see the attraction.

Not for the desperately out-of-shape or those who are afraid of heights. If you aren't afraid of heights and you're up for the climb, you will be very happy with the view from the top. My ten year old son and I climbed to the top and got some great pictures. There's a small store nearby in case you would... More

The view from the top of the column is breath taking! A great 360 degree view of the bourgeois PNW is not to be missed!

This was a nice place to see above the city however the column is being refurbished so it was covered up and could not be seen.That is the only reason i gave it a 4. The view was spectacular.
