If you're traveling between Portland and Hood River this is a nice little stop off the highway. A nice waking trail and it's also popular with rock climbers if you're interested in that.

We needed a short break from I 84 and pulled in here to have a snack and rest awhile. It is an oasis off the Interstate with large grassy areas, huge trees, clean restrooms and a shady parking lot. Lewis and Clark had investigated the Sandy River here and there are various historic markers detailing their local expeditions. Worth a... More
