  • 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 »

  • You must do this 2/3 hour drive on any Oregon road trip. It was our highlight. The historic vista house, farm stands, dramatic water falls and beautiful scenery start to finish.  more »

  • 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.
  • Great wide and beautiful trail !
  • This is the right side of the Tunnels trail if you are walking. Bring $5 cash for the parking. No change provided at the self pay station.
