Map of Columbia Gorge

My apologies for

making this map with

This map shows the most popular section of the Columbia River Highway.
     As you travel from Portland to The Dalles (starting at the bottom of the map) you first come to Vista House, then Latourell Falls, then the Basalt Overhang showing the difficulty in making this road and the rock work that bounds the steep edge.
     Bridal Veil Falls State Park with it's unique cascading water and pungent woods is next.  Then Shepard's Dell Falls nestles in the bank.  Next you pass Wahkeena Falls and come to the most visited natural attraction in Oregon, Multnomah Falls.  A short walk off the highway brings you to Oneonta Falls, then back to the Highway to see lacy Horsetail Falls and then Elowah Falls at the top of the map.
     Further east toward the Dalles you reach Wahclella Falls (also known as Tanner Creek Falls), then Lancaster Falls, then Starvation Creek.
     The Historic Highway continues between Mosier and the Dalles (and therefore not on the map) bringing you to an interesting switchback road called Rowena Loop and fine views of the Columbia River from Tom McCall Preserve and Dry Canyon.
