  • It's just good to get out and enjoy nature, especially in this area. The trails are a great way to get exercise while on your journey to new sights. When the weather is nice, it's not a bad place to get away, even pack a lunch escape.

  • This is one of the beautiful places you can visit. It's like an eroded version of the Grand Canyon with o e of the most major rivers the U.S. flowing through it. You can drive along either side for hours, and see so many cool places along the way.

  • Stunningly beautiful area. Multnomah Falls is iconic, and has a great little gift shop and info center. You can squish a penny inside for a unique local souvenir that doesn't take up a ton of space or cost much. The real treasure after the trip will be your pictures of the beautiful falls. The observation points on the ridge give fantastic views, and the drive was pleasant. Short hikes to view falls are nice, although we were disappointed that some of the longer routes we looked forward to were closed due to the fire. They are slowly reopening, so look for the latest info on that before you go. All in all, a great trip.

  • A scenic place.... Always gorgeous. Great place to take 5 while on your road trip.

  • Columbia Gorge is the most beautiful place in the whole country! When I visited Germany in 1982, we had gone on a cruise through a beautiful section of Germany called the Rhine. Flowing mountains, a gorgeous huge river that separates Oregon State from Washington State. I've only lived here for 7 months but I never want to leave. Hood River is the sailboarding and wind surfing capital of the world!
