It’s a great roadway we have been there many times. Unfortunately part of it plus some of the hikes are closed due to last years fires. Check before you go

Beautiful scenery on a stretch of Columbia River highway, sitting a huge Vista house with beautiful surroundings that everyone going this way should stop by.

A detour along the Historic Columbia River Highway (Hwy 30) is highly recommended. The views of the Gorge are worthwhile and a lunch stop in Troutdale at Shirley's Tippy Canoe restaurant along the highway would be rewarded with a surprisingly pleasant experience.

Unfortunately many of the trails are closed because of the idiot kid who started the forest fire. Bridal Veil is open, but you can see some of the burned trees on the way.

From Troutdale intersecting the Sandy River and riding east, there are plenty of places to see and experience. From Horsetail Falls and riding straight up to Crowne Point. Start early to avoid traffic. Be mindful of the environment, wear hikers, bring water and a selfie...More

This is a great trip up or down the Columbia River. Curvy and scenic, stop along the way to stretch your legs and hike up around the spectacular waterfalls. If you are a biker, this stretch is a must!

Such a gorgeous view of the gorge. Especially breath taking during a sunset. The scenic route to get there is also worthy to note.
