Enjoy panoramic views of the Columbia River gorge from Rowena Crest Viewpoint.
Fab views, a must see.
Whatever you do make sure you stop here for fab views across the Columbia river gorge. It can get busy but you will find a spot to park.
Nobody drives carefully in this stretch. There is a real danger of accident. We think the views are ok.
Gorgeous easy drive
Amazingly beautiful drive along the river bluffs. If you are in Hood River or the Dalles this is an easy drive and really shows off the transition from rain forest to high plains along the Columbia.
A beautiful drive up to the top... Drive slowly
Quite the ride to get to this viewpoint along the Columbia River Gorge. But what a view from the top. We were there on a.bsry windy day and put on two jackets.each.
Beautiful but tiny bugs attacked
Gorgeous views, but almost as quickly as we got out of the car to snap some pics and moved towards the sign discussing the overlook (which looked like it had been shot at) there were hundreds of tiny bugs that descended upon me that were all over my back, hair and no matter how much I flicked them off they came back... I literally was running around the overlook trying to get hundreds of little bugs off me and ran back to the car in a fury once it seemed most were off. Don't know if they were bugs that bite, but wasn't taking the chance since I was covered in them Only because I was attacked did I down grade the rating.... views are gorgeous, but being attacked by bugs made it a VERY short visit
