Disappointing. Covered up for maintenance? The views were obscured by the smoke from all the fires -- not the column's fault.

I gave this a five star review because it is nothing short of magnificent! The column is an artistic depiction that explains the history of Astoria. I have seen it before and it is definitely a must see when in Astoria.

Great view up there, but column was under restoration. No signs telling you of this until you got to the top, still had to pay for parking.

From the foot of the column, you can see nearly every direction. From the top, you can definitely see everywhere. The column itself has beautiful illustrations spiraling all the way up in story-telling fashion. Pretty, trimmed landscaping all around it. Worth going to, for sure!

This will be a fine monument when they finish the work, it closed completely now and wrapped up where you are not able to see the paintings. The views from the park around it are worth the drive up. It's supposed to open again soon, check for details.

Great view of the surrounding area on a clear day. Even if you're afraid of heights this isn't that bad. Get to wave to your friends that don't want to go to the top.

At the moment the monument is covered in a giant white bag. The owner of the motel we were staying at said it was due to open again early 2016. We had to be content with photos of it which isn't the same. We were told you can still go up to the site and even go inside and climb... More

Like other posters have mentioned it is closed. Why I didn't look on trip advisor I don't know. And it was an ordeal to get there as the local roads were all being worked on. But for $2 annually you do see the entire point of Oregon/Washington. It was a nice driving break for us and we walked around and... More

Beautiful views of the surrounding area. You could see almost 360 around. The unfortunate thing was while we were there the column was being restored, so we could only see pictures. It looks like a really cool column too.

We were very disappointed after taking the deture and rough drive up it was closed for restoration. Not their fault, but being from Texas not sure we will ever make it back there. The view from the mountain was pretty good with some clouds.
