Fees and Regulations

  • Northwest Forest Pass required

Driving Directions

This trailhead is easy to get to, once you know where it is. From Portland, drive east on I-84 to Cascade Locks. Take the first Cascade Locks exit (Exit 44). Drive under the Bridge of the Gods and immediately turn right on the road toward the Bridge of the Gods. Before you get to the toll booth, you'll find the trailhead lot on the right, in the center of the road loop.

From Washington, cross the Bridge of the Gods and pay your toll in the booth. Just feet beyond the toll booth, you'll find the lot on the left.

Other Notes

This trailhead is now open all year, but the restrooms are closed in winter. There are a couple of picnic tables in the shelter with the restrooms. The trailhead is part of Cascade Locks' Toll House Park.

You can also park at the PCT Winter Trailhead.
