The scenic highway is a very nice way to see some sights. Go slow and watch for cyclists. And be ready to deal with lots of traffic.

It was a nice, scenic drive. There are various roads the branch off and stops along the way to see the river and even views of Mt. Hood.

This is such a wonderful day trip. The highway has a rich history and it is definitely worth the time. Some waterfalls can be seen from the street and don't even require a hike. Roads are narrow at times so be careful . Restrooms located at the vista house.

Great day trip with lots to see and enjoy. The old and historic Columbia Highway offers some of the most breath taking sights around. Stop and enjoy magficient waterfalls, grand vistas overlooking the Columbia River and enjoy the nearby restaurants.
