Love seeing all the beautiful waterfalls! I suggest driving all the way up to horse tail and then making your way back, don’t stop at Bridalveil, keep going to Vista house, view is amazing. There can be some long waits for the parking lots, just wait it out, it really doesn’t take that long. Used on X off-road trail map for the hiking of the trails.Only bathrooms available are at Multnomah Falls and Bridalveil Falls

Stunning scenery; the Columbia River and lots of waterfalls. The Vista House.
So much to see and do; lots of parks along the river where you can sit and have a picnic and do some walking.

Absolutely beautiful! At 1st, you think its fake, every view! But then it sinks in, this is all real, and one of the most beautiful views in the USA!

This is a no miss while in Portland. Gorgeous falls, lovely hiking. Highly recommend. We took the trolley there so parking was easy.

Absolutely most amazing drive. We attempted to drive along the old 30 Oregon Highway but were stopped by a landslide! You can get pretty good views from Highway 84 - if you can drive slowly. A must stop is to view the Multnomah Falls.
Several viewpoints and parks are available to see the river: Rooster Rock State Park.
Also make sure you drive to the Vista House and the Portland Women's Forum to hopefully get good views.
Lots of places to have a picnic (bring your own food).

The Columbia River Gorge is a beautiful river that runs between northern Oregon and southern Washington. Highway 84 offers beautiful views of the Columbia River, however, my husband and I wanted something slower. Therefore, we drove on the Historic Columbia River highway which is a slower, two lane road that offers views of the Columbia River Gorge, stops at waterfalls and even a vista that offers a panoramic view.

All of the hikes that I explored, which were quite a few, were very well marked and easy to follow. At sunrise on top of the mountains, the sun glow coming through the moss covered trees and branches covered in witches hair make the scene something out of a movie, just breathtaking.

What a beautiful area! We stopped at A few falls and then the scenic overview place. Multnomah Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the Vista House. All in all it took only an a couple hours. I would like to go back someday and hike around the area.

Having lived in Hood River and now in Portland, with family in both places, I travel the Gorge a lot. It is just beautiful and varied. I always take visitors there.
