  • We go here every few years to take a ride up and look around the viewing station at the top. There is also a long ramp to the side and the top of the bluff has a nice walking path.  more »

  • When you take the elevator, you also get to see all the old pictures from Oregon city and enjoy the nice view of the bridge and the river.
  • How fun can this be? It's a beautiful day for a walk. I read an article in the Oregonian a while back, and they mentioned a historical path that one may enjoy through the McLoughlin Promenade in Oregon City. It's amazing that one can live here a lifetime and never stop and smell the roses. Literally. I started at the base of the elevator then moved on. The view at the top was awesome. Great view of the OC bridge and downtown. Spent some time looking at all the pictures of the building of the elevator and scoping out all the activity below. Next time I'm going to bring my binoculars. You can hang out there for awhile or make a short trek to the McLoughlin house. If you feel more adventurous, I recommend taking the walk on the promenade. Head south from the elevator and check out the view of the Willamette heading toward the falls. You get a bird's eye view of the old Blue Heron Paper Company facility, which is a bit of an eyesore, but I was fascinated imagining what it must have looked like in full operation. Then the path leads to a walking bridge over McLoughlin Blvd. From there you head south on street level to the turnout overlooking the falls. Cross the street and head up 2nd then left on Tumwater past (or stop in) the Historical Museum (I didn't even know it was there) to the VFW where you'll hook back up to the promenade back to the elevator. I'm handicapped and walked with a cane, so I took my time and stopped for refreshments at the Irish pub on 2nd & McLoughlin. Met some people on outdoor deck where I engaged in a little conversation while I rested. So it took me a few hours, but I had a great time and got well needed exercise. I will definitely do this again.
  • What can I say....SOOO COOOL!!!.... I mean it's an elevator!!....and the history is really cool, there are lots of little plaques telling about the history of the area.
  • You have to do this when you're in Oregon City ...very historic.
  • Fun place to visit and great place to see Downtown Oregon City
