We stopped off on our way home from Skamania lodge to take in the view at Cape Horn Lookout. This is one of the most spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge. MUST SEE

My only caution is to approach this from the eastbound direction, only. If you're coming westbound, take the next exit after this, then turn around. It really is not terrifically safe to try to get to the bump-out from a westbound direction, then to turn...More

The view of the Columbia River is beautiful from the lookout, but there is no sign telling you where to pull off for this lovely view. We drove east on Hwy. 14 from Vancouver, searching for this lookout, and never found it (because we were...More
