River Access and Hiking
Viento has a day-use area with easy access to the Columbia River and some thrilling windsurfing. There's a great picnic area right next to a wonderful, babbling creek.
A one-mile, wide, paved trail from Viento to the Starvation Creek waterfall takes you along a section of the Historic Columbia River Highway. Once the only west-east route for motorists, the route hasn't seen auto traffic in more than 50 years. If you get a chance to visit, imagine an old Ford Model T twisting around the corners! For information, see our Historic Columbia River Highway and State Trail bicycle and hiking map.
Viento is next to a working railroad line and crossing. Visitors and campers can expect to hear train horns throughout the day and night. Interstate 84 also borders the park. Please call the park office at 541-374-8811 for more information.
