We did the drive from Vancouver WA on 14 to Hood River OR today. I don't currently recommend it until the fires are out. This wasn't our first time, but it was for my father in law. We knew about the fires, but we only...More

The views of the gorge are still amazing. The fires were creating smoke drift that came and went. The river was beautiful, as always, so the visit was still very satisfying!

This is a beautiful drive. There are many waterfalls to stop, see, and hike. Of course Multnomah Falls is the most popular, but if you have time to check out the others it is worth it- they are equally beautiful.

From Portland, Oregon travel east along old highway # 30 (not the main highway by the river), you'll have easy access to all the waterfalls and signs pointing out each just before you reach them. Parking at each fall is limited, so you might have...More

We drove along the historic Columbia River Highway on a beautful day. Almost every waterfall is well-marked and easy to walk to. There are no long hikes involved.

I grew up in California but always had family near the Portland area so I grew up taking family vacations near here and hiking in the Gorge. The views are spectacular!

It shouldn't be news to anyone that the Columbia River Gorge is a truly beautiful place. We've been through it several times, but this past week took two Washington, D.C. friends for their first visit. And they loved it. If you have the time, continue...More

Because of its vicinity to Portland, this drive is a little too popular. Gorgeous however. Crown point and Multnomah Falls are a high point.
