We are still offering the Mt Hood Loop Tour but with a modified itinerary due to the Eagle Creek fire on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge.
On the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway we will pull over off Highway 26 for a scenic look at Mt. Hood and be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Barlow Trail route over the mountain. Stroll the brick pathway, look through the telescope, and enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Hood and the Sandy River Valley. On clear days, majestic Mt. Hood looms above the scene. Next we will stop at Zigzag Falls and follow the trail that winds gently through a beautiful moss-draped, conifer forest. The trail follows the Little Zigzag River—a small, energetic, spring/glacier-fed, five-mile tributary of Zigzag River that drains from Zigzag Glacier high up on Mount Hood’s southwest slope. We will also stop at Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge, have lunch in the beautiful mountain town of Government Camp, visit Trillium Lake- where on a clear day Mt Hood is reflected in the top of the lake, stop at a fruit stand near the town of Hood River, and we will drive back to Portland on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. You will still be able to enjoy the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge as we drive back to Portland.

We start along the Historic Columbia River Highway National Scenic Byway. Some of the waterfalls make include; Latourell Falls, Multnomah Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Wahkeena Falls and Horse Tail Falls.
Crown Point Vista House:
Best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, providing a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished in 2005, with its beautiful marble interior and brass fixtures completely remodeled.
Plunge 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of columnar basalt – some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest – before cascading hastily towards the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to give this location their treatment. And if you stand in just the right place, and look way up, behind the falls you see another falls!
At Multnomah Falls, take a picture from any one of the many viewpoints or walk 5mins to the Benson Bride to view the falls from a unique perspective- above!
The second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. Nearly two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall, making it Oregon’s number one public destination. Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies but is highest during winter and spring.
Then, we continue driving east farther up the river to the town of Hood River, where breathtaking natural beauty and high winds create a paradise for windsurfers, kite boarders and sightseers. Your tour guide will tell you about the history of the land and the region’s culture, giving you an understanding of how this incredible landscape was shaped many years ago.
For lunch you will have a selection of places to choose from in Hood River with views of Mt Hood and Mt Adams. You will have the opportunity to visit many of the boutique shops and wine tasting rooms in Hood River.There are two wine tasting rooms we highly recommend stopping by to visit: Naked Winery Tasting Room and Springdale Tasting Room.
