  • Wow! Seemingly around every turn is an amazing viewpoint. This is one of them. It also has an interesting history. I won't spoil it, you have to stop and read the board yourself.  more »
  • Although Crown Point may be more popular, this spot is better. You look down at Crown Point and have a better and broader view of the Columbia River Gorge. There are no crowds either.  more »
  • This is the first marking the Historic Columbia River Highway, and really tell you: is worth thousand times sorrow make the stop. The entrance is as in a curve, so take your precautions. You are going to get to a parking lot and there are two points where you can observe the landscape (one at the entrance and another at the end) and the Columbia River Gorge. This point is even higher than VISTA HOUSE, which is far away and that would be the next tourist stop. Remember that the view will only be possible on clear days or moments where cloudy skies to clear... There is also a suitable path for those adventurous.

  • This park has beautiful views of the Vista house, Crown Point and the Columbia River Gorge to the east. If the conditions are right, the back scattering at Sunset can be phenomenal. Sunrises are also quite phenomenal from here. if you want to experience some stunning views but are unable to hike, this is a good spot to come, and it's also usually less crowded and Vista house at Crown Point just down the road.
  • This place is so cool!!...great views!!...sorry though there aren't any restrooms...but there are some at Crown Point just down the road....I like to stretch my legs here...go in the parking lot all the way to the end....see a road to the West....your allowed to go down this road...it goes to the bottom....REALLY NEAT VIEWS ...BUT...Watch yourself it is a little risky...like REALLY watch those little ones!!...😃
  • This scenic viewpoint offers a great view of the Columbia River Gorge as well as picnic tables and lawn. This location offers a great view of Vista House, too. More than 400,000 people visit this site annually, and it is a popular spot to photograph the gorge and Vista House. Pack a lunch and your camera and sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the great scenic wonders of Oregon.
  • Great views, but you may want to save this for the ride back from PDX, as I find it's best to save the Vista House as your first "Oh WOW!" moment of the drive along the old Highway.
  • Incredible view of the gorge and Vista house! Must stop
