The Columbia River Gorge has so many attractions, viewpoints, waterfalls, hiking trails, wineries, parks, and scenic drives and to sum up a review for all of these things all I can say is every bit of it is breathtaking, picture perfect, and full of awe.

We were driving to Portland and thoroughly enjoyed the views and quaint towns along HWY 84 Would love to go back and spend more time--only downfall was the recent fires in the area had closed the accesses to the multiple waterfalls.

This is a very scenic river along interstate 84. The rock formations are impressive & there are many places to hike.
