A Drive Down Portland’s Loneliest Road Will Take You Miles And Miles Away From It All

If you want to get away from it all, head east toward the Historic Columbia River Highway. This scenic road is over 100 years old and was meant for touring the beauty of the gorge, making it a perfect escape from your day-to-day life. Hop on the slow-moving highway and pass by waterfalls, scenic viewpoints and forested beauty on this journey miles away from it all.
