The Bridge of the Gods is a steel truss cantilever bridge that spans the Columbia River between Cascade Locks, Oregon, and Washington state near North Bonneville. It is approximately 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Portland, Oregon, and 4 miles (6.4 km) upriver from the Bonneville Dam. It is a toll bridge operated by the Port of Cascade Locks.The bridge was completed by Wauna Toll Bridge Company and opened in 1926 at a length of 1,127 feet (343 m). The higher river levels resulting from the construction of the Bonneville Dam required the bridge to be further elevated in 1940 and extended to its current length of 1,856 feet (565 m). The Columbia River Bridge Company of Spokane, Washington, acquired ownership of the bridge in 1953 for $735,000. The Port of Cascade Locks Commission now operates the bridge.The bridge is named after the historic geologic feature also known as Bridge of the Gods.The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Columbia River on the Bridge of the Gods, and the lowest elevation of the trail is on this bridge.

  • A great piece of archtecture spanning the Colembia river. This is one of the main ways to get to the state of Wahington. There is a $2 toll for a car.  more »
  • One of the rare toll bridges in Oregon. Accessed from Oregon at Cascade Locks, just east of Fort Rains off Washington Rt 14. one of the few crossings (and probably the shortest) between Oregon and Was...  more »
  • Pay $2 each way to cross this bridge. Nothing spectacular but it gets you where you need to go. We were heading to Dog Mountain for a long hike...  more »

  • I love the view there, and there is a restaurant called Bridgeside that has the views while you sit. They have a salad bar and even have gluten free buns for their burgers. There is also a gift shop with homemade fudge and little knick knacks and things. It is one of my favorite places to eat.
  • i moved here from Vancouver and got the one dollar off sticker for locals and sense my window is odd when you put stickers on the bottom it hinders your vision and one lady with brown hair and glasses said it was fine to put it on the top part of the window and its easy to just see it there instead of the bottom. window is slanted enough. so i did this no problem, next day i crossed a lady with red hair said i cant have it there and i explained in a kind manner i was given permission by the bridge to do this. then she got angry and yelled at me for it and to fix it. im so happy i did not have my kids to see this lady loose it for something so dumb. i hope she gets the help she needs.
  • Cool place I'd really like to visit again. Gets kinda of crowded and the parking can be a pain. It took my wife and I about 20 minutes to park. When we got the waterfall was closed off for some reason. This was very disappointing. So we went to the restaurant and had a couple drinks. Our table was great and had a great view with a glass roof.
  • Tried to cross like I was using monkey bars and they called the FBI. It was fun, but dont attempt if you don't mind 30days in the clink.
  • What a great place to hang out and stretch your legs and if your up for it you can walk down the path.... Of course the town has many spots to eat...just depends on what you want.
