Driving Directions

From Portland, drive east on I-84 to Cascade Locks. Take the first Cascade Locks exit. Drive under the Bridge of the Gods and a couple of blocks later, turn right on Wasco Street. Drive one block and make another right on Moody Street. Drive under the freeway and reach a junction. Bear right and continue 50 yards on Harvey Road. Soon, you'll see a pair of trails, the Pacific Crest Trail #2000 heading off to the left and the Gorge Trail #400, heading to the right. There are gravel parking pullouts on the left and right. You can also park under the freeway bridge.

From Washington, cross the Bridge of the Gods and pay your toll in the booth. Drive to the foot of the bridge road and turn right on Wa-Na-Pa Street. Turn right on Wasco St and follow the directions above.

Other Notes

This trailhead used to be the alternative when the Bridge of the Gods Trailhead was closed during winter. The latter is now open, but this trailhead can still be used all year.
