  • The Historic Columbia River Highway
What's New?
The Historic Columbia River Highway (U.S. Highway 30) offers ever-shifting perspectives of the Columbia River Gorge. The Historic Highway was left partially intact after Interstate 84 was built; with the middle section cut into pieces or partially destroyed. 

Parts of the Historic Highway are accessible to motorized vehicles, but the middle section of the Historic Highway is being developed into a State Trail for bikes and pedestrians.
