Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail – Bridge of the Gods Trailhead

Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

This just in, new videos from Oregon Department of Transportation that lay out the future development of sections of Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail. Check them out here.

Lush and green, this portion of the trail gets twice as much rainfall as the Twin Tunnels section. Ferns, moss-covered rocks and delicate, shaded wildflowers flank the 4-mile section from Cascade Locks west to the Tooth Rock Trailhead. Several U.S. Forest Service trails intersect this segment of the trail including the Pacific Crest Trail. Note: This segment has a staircase equipped with bikewheel grooves about 3 miles west of the trailhead. The trail leading up to the staircase is ADA accessible.

Park for free at the small parking area near the bridge entrance. The trailhead is beneath the bridge.
