**Due to the Eagle Creek Fire, the Historic Columbia River Highway is closed from Bridal Veil to Ainsworth State Park. ODOT plans to reopen the highway when fire recovery work is complete. New rockslides have pushed back the timeline for reopening the highway. Information about reopening the Historic Highway will be available on this website and on when available.

A six-mile section of the Historic Highway is open from Larch Mountain Road to Bridal Veil. Six miles of the Historic Highway State Trail between Cascade Locks and John B. Yeon opened Sept. 28. Looking for a trail to hike? View a list of nearby hikes to try.**
