Get off the highway and take the old road. The views and vistas are awesome.
Stop at the smaller waterfalls where traffic and parking are less a problem but just as lovely.

Stay off of the interstate and enjoy the slow pace and take in the breathtaking scenery. Little towns, lovely views and a stop at The Vista House! I wish we had more time to explore it in the eastward direction!

Since this ha been replaced with an interstate running through the Columbia River Gorge you could miss a really pleasant drive through the quiet part of Oregon that is hidden in the trees.
This historic highway 30 also takes you right past some of the most amazing waterfalls that you are likely to see .

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.
