This is a beautiful, desolate driving loop of the gorge. Pay at the front gate and get a map. There are five or six stops to get out, walk around, take pictures. Enjoy!

This state park, just off of I-84, is worth a visit. There is information about the gorge and the area at overlooks (be careful around the edge), and a nice grassy park area for picnicing. You can do some hiking, but it was too hot...More
