Next, we will stop at Crown Visit Point House with a complete overlook of the Gorge region. Crown Point Vista House, best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished and completely remodeled in 2005.

Our next stop is Latourell Falls. This waterfall plunges 249' over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to this captivating location.

Other waterfalls we may stop at while driving on the Historic Columbia River Highway include:
Bridal Veil Falls-Beautiful Bridal Veil Falls is an elegant and graceful lady that can be fully appreciated from the deck of a viewing platform rebuilt in 1996. The creek hustles down from the top of nearby Larch Mountain, tumbles over the cliff and eventually flows into the mighty Columbia River.

Next we will drive to Multnomah Falls.According to Native American lore, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Knowledgeable tour guide made for a great experience! Recommend for anyone that loves waterfalls. Great picture taking opportunities.

  • Very friendly experience and happy tour process

  • We saw some beautiful waterfalls and learned some cool history about the area. But my husband was most excited about the fish hatchery visit that was advertised on the itinerary but the tour guide never took us to the fish hatchery and never even mentioned it. Overall we made the best of it though.

  • Very informative guide, saw awesome sights

  • I guess it's not exactly fair to rate this trip since we did not go on the planned excursion. The road to Multnomah and the Gorge area was closed due to recent wildfires. Instead we went to Silver Falls State Park which was a little further away and probably not quite as impressive, but it was still very worthwhile. Phil, the guide, was very informative and pleasant. I would still recommend this trip.

  • Beautiful Beautiful...if you had mentioned that it was an hour drive...I might not have gone. I did know that it would be 3.5 hours and enjoyed this very much.

  • It was great. Driver-guide was terrific and waterfalls were wonderful.

  • Unfortunately, we had to do a modified tour due to the wildfires, but the trip to the state park was awesome! We got to see three really beautiful waterfalls and even went behind one, which was awesome! Our tour guide was very nice and super knowledgeable too. Only thing I would have changed was the bus itself. Since we got picked up second to last, we had to cram into the back seat with another couple, which was very uncomfortable for the 3 hour drive round trip. All of the other chairs in the bus were very comfortable, but they were taken by others and not shared throughout the day, which we found a bit annoying. We were grateful when we got dropped off to get away from the seat we were in!

  • Great guide. Enjoyed the beautiful sights.
