It is hard to image that within such a short distance from a big city there is such a great scenic area. We did not have enough time to visit all the attractions, but we visited 3 major ones: the Crown Point Vista House, the...More

Booked the Mt Hood Day Trip to Multnomah Falls and Hood River for Sept. 9th. Due to the forest fires we where offered an alternative trip and as I wanted to see some of the countryside we gladly accepted. What a fantastic day we had....More

Though by now much has been lost to forest fires, there's so much natural beauty that the drive is really worth it. The river itself is beautiful, and you'll want to take lots of pictures.

We were lucky enough to tour the gorge in the Spring of 2016. We flew into Portland and after a wonderful visit to the coast, returned to the city and took day tours to Mt Hood and the Bonniville (sp?) Resort. Such natural beauty and...More

This is NOT Disney. And although the parking can be difficult at many of the waterfalls, there is a lot to see and enjoy, including fisheries (really interesting), river sports, scenic drives, wineries... Just a great place to kick back with just enough to see...More

Traveled from Australia in October 2016, stayed in Portland OR and got a rental car. The drive is a short 30 minute on the interstate and you can also take the Historic Columbia River Highway which is slower but way more scenic. Best if you...More

We stopped off at Horsetail Falls on our drive from Idaho to Portland - very pretty place, wish we had longer to explore. Several other falls along the same road which we would have stopped at had time allowed.

Here's how we did it and it worked out great for us. We left Portland early - like around 8am - and we passed everything else and went directly to Multnomah Falls. There was plenty of parking when we got there around 8:30/8:45am. We climbed...More
