Great 360° view

If you can handle the 164 stairs it's definitely worth the effort. We had good weather with a fantastic view.

Do not miss the climb, view and outside painting at the Astoria Column. The Astoria Column is painted beautifully on the outside. The painting about the Lewis and Clark Expedition is covered from top to bottom (125 feet) on the column. We climbed the narrow spiral stair case to the top. Many people brought light weight wooden gliders from the... More

So it rains a lot in my beloved PNW BUT on a clear day it is breath taking!! The column is 164 stairs (not for the faint of heart). Even if you can't make the climb it is an amazing view from the parking lot!! Just choose a clear day if possible :-) The historic value is interesting as well!!... More

$5.00 per car for entry. The 360 views were spectacular. We then walked to the cathedral tree (1mile each way). Highly recommended.

A fantastic view of Astoria. We hiked from town up to the column and then to the top. Was worth all the hard work.

This sits on top of a large bluff over looking the water and the city. The views are great. And it was a very sunny day so you could see a lot. Pretty nice.

Even for those of us who didn't make it to the top (my husband did, I didn't even try) the hill offered a panoramic view of Astoria, the bridge and the river. The tower itself is beautiful with its depictions of historic events.

Just plain beautiful the view and the column. It's really nice on a clear day. Perhaps a little sign telling you which mountain your looking at should be visible to guests

A great excursion. Worth climbing the 164 steps to the top for the view. See Washington State across the Columbia River. See Mt. St. Helens and even Mt. Ranier. $5 parking pass good for the year and a great dining discount.
