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.

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

I would suggest driving to Cascade Locks and crossing at the Bridge of the gods. Head west for 5 minutes or so and stop at Beacon Rock. Take the hike to the top of the rock. It's about a 30-45 minute hike up the side of... More
