“Nice scenic experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great stop on a scenic trip along Historic Columbia Highway. Combined with apps along the way at some of the many falls in the same area, it's a beautiful expedience. Lots of hiking too.

“awesome Columbia River Gorge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

It is well worth the extra time when traveling through the Columbia River Gorge to detour onto the Columbia River Scenic Drive. You will see waterfalls, and wonderful views you do not get from the freeway.

“A beautiful drive and not far away.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

If you are in Portland, then you pretty much have to do this drive. Because of that, it's well touristed, and might be some parking hassles. We love to stay at Edgefield Hotel in troutdale, and just hangout there the whole time and fit in a Columbia River drive.
