Bridge of the Gods is a cool and scenic way to cross to Washington State from Oregon. There is a toll to pay and the bridge is not super busy when we went so we could take our time driving through. There is a sign marking the state line for Washington and Oregon as you cross (depending on which way... More

Didn't know where we were headed on this particular Sunday. Stopped at the falls and wanted a different view back to Vancouver. So we went this way to cross the river and we were glad we did. Yes there is a toll but well worth it. and the view was spectacular.

After traveling many miles through scenic Washington State on our road bikes, we arrived at the bridge just after sunset. We were the only ones traveling across at the moment which added to the experience of crossing the river into Cascade Locks, OR. Toll was one dollar, and the attendant was very helpful with directions to the KOA Campground.

The Columbia River is a wide one. Places to cross from Washington to Oregon are few and far between. Bridge of Gods crosses the river between Stevenson, Washington, and Cascade Locks, Oregon. A trip across this toll bridge affords great views of the Columbia both upriver and downriver. Well worth the two buck toll charge...

Whenever I have out of town guests I always take them for a fun ride through the Columbia River Gorge with a roundtrip over the Bridge of the Gods. It looks like a giant erector set project and costs $2 per trip. Great view from the bridge in this very slow crossing. Highly recommend.

We came at sunrise. We crossed the river twice in a matter of an hour. Well worth the $4 we spent. Gorgeous view from Washington side.

The neat looking bridge takes you from one side to another for travel between Oregon and Washington. They do charge a small fee of $2 each way so be prepared.

I wouldn't go just to see the bridge, but the drive out to Cascade Locks has a lot of nice attractions along the way and this is one of them.

Decided to take a slight detour to visit this locale. The drive was beautiful as were the sites. Paid the small fee to drive across the bridge, took some photos, then came right back over.
