Love is in the Gorge

02/11/2019 | Hiking, Lodging, West Columbia River Gorge

February is the month of love and if you’re looking for a romantic spot to “pop the question” or just to spend some time together, there are a few ideal locations in the Columbia Gorge just waiting to be part of your romantic story.

Lovers Oak

Just down the hill from downtown Troutdale, located on the lawn of the Harlow House Museum, is the Lover’s Oak. This impressive tree with its arched “S” shaped trunk is the logo of the Troutdale Historical Society and was re-created for a new generation to enjoy. The original tree was shaped by a Columbia River Flood in 1876, and taken down by the infamous Columbus Day windstorm of 1962. Become part of history, as so many couples have before, profess your feelings at the Lover’s Oak. For more of the story go to

Crown Point Vista House

Crown Point Vista House is popular for engagements. With incredible views of the Gorge, this spot is sure to take your partner’s breath away. Whether it’s sunrise, sunset or midday - you can’t go wrong with this beautiful spot.

Last but not least, the cool spray of a towering waterfall is not enough to chill the heat of passion at Multnomah Falls. This gem of the Northwest will set the perfect atmosphere for your sweetheart getaway. Add a romantic dinner for two at the Lodge and you’ve got the perfect outing. 

Let the West Columbia Gorge provide the perfect backdrop for your romance!
