Please Plan and Prepare Before Visiting the Gorge

Increased visitation puts increased pressure on the Gorge’s limited resources.  If you’re planning a trip to our region, please help keep our communities safe by following CDC and local health guidelines and respecting the requests of individual businesses. Always have a Plan B and a Plan C in case your destination is too crowded or closed. 

Visit Car-Free with the Columbia Gorge Express

Sit back and enjoy the amazing views with one of the many shuttles leaving Portland each day for Multnomah Falls, Cascade Locks, Hood River or any of the great trails and unique towns linked by transit. Start here to plan your trip.
