Being a Scenic Area, we are home to an abundance of scenic drives. Two epic roads trace the Columbia River’s pathway through the Cascade Mountains -- Oregon's Historic Columbia River Highway and Washington's Lewis and Clark Trail Scenic Byway. Drivers can also experience two National Forest units in one amazing drive by following the Mt. Hood Scenic Loop. Click above for more details.
