Love, love, love the Columbia River Gorge. It actually reminded us of scenery when we cruised Alaska. The water, mountain, trees, and waterfalls are just gorgeous. So serene, so magnificent! I want to visit again so we can hike.

gorgeous views of the river, waterfalls, great hiking and even a coffee shop to stop at along the way. We went in the winter months and really enjoyed the ice and not many people.

The drive down the Columbia River Gorge is beautiful! So many beautiful waterfalls, river vistas, gorges, etc. I am very glad we took the time to make the drive during our summer road trip. If you are in the area, and have the time, this side trip is highly recommended. We started in Washougal and made it a quick trip... More

I drive I-84 from Pendleton to Portland every summer on my way to the coast and it never fails to amaze me. This is the most spectacular drive in America if you take time to stop and see all the views, go down to the river, see the several waterfalls, stop at the dams, and just enjoy the air. A... More

The gorge has to be the place for activities, from kite boarding, hiking, biking, white water rafting, sking, fishing, drinking, and just enjoying life.

Driving on HWY 84 the view is wonderful in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees. If it is freezing there are white waterfalls made of ice and greenish icicles on the cliff faces..

The views of the forest are amazing. This is a great place to go windsurfing to too. There are several places to go hiking to and some waterfalls that you can raft in.
