Awesome view and a great place to let the kids run wild and burn off some energy. On a clear day you can see what seems like forever. A must visit and see.

This was a great historical site, the views from the area and the column was spectacular. The only thing that would have made this a better experience was the deck was small and over crowded. The only cost was the parking pass.

We had a great family trip and beautiful weather. The view from the top was gorgeous and well worth the climb. It was nice to learn about the history of the early inhabitants of this special area.

Piece of the history of Astoria not to be missed, for the view if nothing else. From the Columbia river, to Pacific Ocean and the most dangerous bar crossing in the nation, around to Young's Bay and Fort Clasp where Lewis and Clark camped to...More

It was a lovely place with mild temperature. The artwork on the column telling the history was beautiful! Don't miss it if you're in the area. My only regret was the tour was too quick!

Beautiful panoramic view of Astoria and Warrenton. Very interesting structure. Didn't walk to the top (bad knees) but many others did. I can just imagine the view from there. This is a must-see.

30 min is about right but if you're lucky and have a great day then you'd want a little longer. I say plan for an hour. If you're in that much of a hurry then don't go. I've been there twice BTW.
