A great area to spend a few days on both sides of the river. Small towns, breweries, golf, train rides, lots of hikes, diverse landscapes, fishing and much more! Make sure to check out the historic highway 30 too.

If you are in this area, you must drive through the scenic highway and explore this beautiful area. Makes for excellent photo ops especially if the weather is nice, which we experienced on a recent trip. Easy and quick drive from Portland.

We were disappointed in the run down condition of the hotel. Top floor was closed off because of damage. Staff was friendly and helpful, grounds and view were beautiful. Simons had great food.

If you are in the area drive this scenic route making the indicated stops for waterfalls and views. Weekdays are less crowded. Go at least to the town of Hood River which is a charming place with lots of good restaurants and cure shops.

The Columbia River Gorge is beauty at every turn and every angle. Lots of great hiking, Multnomah Falls was beautiful, Mosier Plateau has an amazing view. Tamanawas Falls is a great hike - moderate, but the waterfall is not to be missed.

Driving in from Portland with an afternoon to kill I was amazed by the beauty. It's hard to get it in a picture so you must experience it for yourself. Amazed by the size. Drove it from Kennewick to Portland in Jan.

The whole area is an eyeful. A bit crowded on the weekend regardless. A place to enjoy the northwest area. Trails are well maintained. The area abounds with many choices.

Spent 4 days exploring the many water falls in the area-there are about 100-depending on how much you want to hike-the longer the trails the few tourists. Each falls is different so d not be afraid to explore. The attached photo is from View House...More

Wow, what a wonderful place! Scenic, decent places to eat. Ample outdoor activities. Having grown up in the midwest, the Columbia River Gorge and it's many wonders is what I imagined as a wonderous place I could only dream about as a kid. Historic U.S....More

Doesn't matter, just remember to have the sun at your back.
We are staying in Hood River and would like more information on the scenic drive all along the Columbia River Gorge. Which bridges would be best for crossing back and forth from Oregon to Washington and back?

If you have the time take them all. If you really have time take the gorge tour boat.
I am considering visiting in early April. We love to hike and don't mind a little cold, but seriously, would the weather be pretty miserable??? We would be flying in so I would want to pack as light as possible but wonder just how many layers and changes of shoes might I need? ugggh. Thanks for any advice!

I agree with the other posts. I always pack in layers and I would advise you to do the same. Even bring some rain gear, like a small folding slicker of some sort, just in case. Oregon has very unpredictable weather.
