Plan your trip

Lush and green, this portion of the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail gets twice as much rainfall as the Twin Tunnels section between Hood River and Mosier. Ferns, moss-covered rocks and delicate, shaded wildflowers flank the 4-mile section from Cascade Locks west to the Tooth Rock Trailhead. Several U.S. Forest Service trails intersect this segment of the trail including the Pacific Crest Trail.

This segment has a staircase equipped with bikewheel grooves about 3 miles west of the trailhead. The trail leading up to the staircase is ADA accessible.

Eagle Creek Fire closure: Bridge of the Gods trailhead is open ONLY to the paved sections of the Historic Highway State Trail at this time. Everything else remains closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire.

Park for free at the small parking area near the bridge entrance. The trailhead is beneath the bridge.
