Whether you are bringing the whole family or a smaller group of friends, there is sure to be something fun for you in the West Columbia River Gorge. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

What are the major destinations in the West Columbia River Gorge

  • Historic Columbia River Hwy Travel to magnificent overlooks that provide views of the Columbia River and waterfalls, including Multnomah Falls.

  • Vista House Few places combine natures wonders and human architectural brilliance so majestically. Once called Thors Heights, Crown Point is capped with a rest stop observatory named the Vista House.

  • Multnomah Falls At 620 feet, Multnomah Falls is arguably `the grandaddy` of the 77 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It attracts large crowds on summer weekends, so plan accordingly. A trail from famous Multnomah Falls Lodge (1925) climbs to the Simon Benson Bridge across the lower cascade, then zigzags to the top.
