Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint

Near Portland, Oregon, United States

No trip to Vista House is complete without a stop at Portland Women’s Forum for a stunning view of the historic landmark framed by the Columbia River Gorge.

The same view that attracts visitors from around the globe inspired the visionaries of the Historic Columbia River Highway, built in 1918 as the first road linking Portland and The Dalles. This small park’s namesake organization, the Portland Women’s Forum, was active in preserving the natural beauty along the Gorge and donated the land to the state. Come see for yourself why this is one of the most popular viewpoints for photographing Vista House.

The viewpoint closes nightly at 9 p.m. and reopens at 6 a.m.
