  • Oregon had a huge fire Sept 2017, and the Highway was closed due to it. We were really sad about it. Don't know when the highway will open again. Don't plan a trip for this until you contact someone i...  more »
  • Part of a 13 day roadtrip around the PNW, the Columbia River Gorge via the Historic Highway was a definite highlight. Since this is such a well-traveled and easily accessible area, I was honestly expe...  more »
  • The twin tunnels is an easy hike from the east side. The path is paved and although getting to the tunnels from the parking lot is uphill, you have several opportunities to stop along the way and look...  more »

  • A must do. It's absolutely beautiful. Different places to stop, so you can do a little hiking, check out various waterfalls, or just enjoy the view. The small bridges are also nice to inspect. I didn't get to drive the entire route. I wish I did though.
  • What a great hands-on section of the original Columbia Gorge Hwy! The section from Hood River to Mosier has been turned into a great trail for hiking or biking. See beautiful views of the Gorge and well preserved tunnels.
  • A casual bike ride along this trail is about 1.5 hours. We left from Mosier to start, and the ride west to east was more difficult, with the greatest difficulty being from trail start to the tunnel. That being said, the Hood River parking facility is much nicer - bathrooms, layout, and there are trail signs there - than the Mosier end. Lots of great views along the way. Probably not a good place to take younger kids on bikes as the hills can be steep at times and would be difficult to surmount or stop.
  • Found this trail in the Curious Gorge Book. Highly recommended if you want to explore the Columbia Gorge. This trail is a lot of fun and a nice piece of history.
