Spur of the moment trip...only one day!

We need help quickly. We just have one day to sight see in the Portland area. We want to see the beautiful Columbia River area. Could we drive to Multnomah Falls area or what would you suggest? We are arriving around 10:00am. The next day is a working day in Portland. Then we have to be back in Ohio. I know we need way more time to do the area justice, but we still want to take advantage of this one day opportunity.

The Gorge absolutely ! PDX is on the East side of Portland and 15 minutes from the beginning of the Gorge. Note that you can go via Interstate 84 one way and the other way on Highway 14 which is a small 2 lane road on the Washington side.

Or you can do what is called the "Mt Hood Loop" which is :

Portland via Interstate 84 to Hood River

Hood River South on Highway 35 an then toward Portland on 26 to Timberline Lodge (Mt Hood)

Timberline back on Highway 26 to Portland
