Dramatic views of the canyon. You can walk along path on the edge with some bump-out overhangs where you can look straight down to the river or one can walk across the old vehicle... read more

Dramatic views of the canyon. You can walk along path on the edge with some bump-out overhangs where you can look straight down to the river or one can walk across the old vehicle bridge which is now a pedestrian walkway for excellent views up and down the canyon. Some days you will find a bungee operation going for those... More

Look straight down without climbing. Walk along the rim or use the old highway bridge now reserved for pedestrians. Occasionally watch (or use) the bungee jump vendor parked on the bridge.

The Oregon Bungee guys jump from here. It is the highest commercial jump site in the US. Definitely great to watch. The guys are great and if you choose to jump they will walk you through it very well.

We stopped here to get out of our car, stretch our legs. What a gem!. Beautiful views of the gorge and bridges. Even had the chance to watch bungee jumpers off the bridge that was at one time the highway. Glad we stopped here, another one of Oregon's beauties.

This is one scenic wayside that is a must see if you are anywhere near Terrebonne. The views from the old bridge are amazing. We took some of our favorite pics at this stop. Watching the bungee jumping, oh my, people are crazy!

This viewpoint was gorgeous, there is an older bridge that is now only used for pedestrians. We walked along the cliff, it has a nice and safe cement wall and you can view the river gorge in a variety of places.

Well if your afraid of heights, I would not suggust going here. The bathrooms have running water but weren't clean and didn't have any soap. The view is gorgeous but lots of warning signs.
