This drive follows the north shore of the Columbia River through the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The Columbia River is the aorta of the West Coast, the blood of the lives and businesses that depend on it. During early October, the Columbia River can be entirely blanketed in fog on an otherwise sunny day. From the air it looks like a snake trying to devour cities. Special attractions: Beacon Rock State Park, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center, Horsethief Lake State Park petroglyphs, Stonehenge Memorial, Maryhill Museum, horseback riding, hiking, whitewater rafting, windsurfing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
