It is a beautiful drive, from the Troutdale part, stop by the river to enjoy the beauty Oregon has to offer, then climb up the mountain and savour the views from the view points, visit the different falls.

Whether one is just passing through or a lifelong Oregonian/Southwest Washingtonian, this drive captures the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge perfectly. It is a treat any time of the year, but fall and spring are awesome when the falls are most active. No words will do it justice.

Beautiful gorge. As pretty on the Washington side. Lots of easy (& not so easy) hikes. Nice little towns. Live a few minutes from & still go all the time. Love the million dollar bathroom (nice free museum & views).

What a beautiful drive. We started in Troutdale, and my our way past Wahkeena falls before getting back on the freeway. So many places to take in waterfalls, overlooks, trails, you name it. You could easily spend a feed days, as we are, to the explore, hike and take it all the sights. If you visit during a weekend or bust time, pack your patience or start early! The lots fill up quickly and parking can be tough. Other than being clogged around the more popular spots, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

The Columbia River Gorge is an awesome place to visit and explore. A must see is Multnomah Falls and a great way to see it is to travel the old highway. Worth the time and energy, you wont be disappointed.
