  • Unfortunately we went to this overlook when it was overcast and the white behemoth was difficult to distinguish from the clouds above. Still, it was convenient to reach along our route from the Columbia River Gorge/Crown Point to Multnomah Falls and then on to Trillium Lake. The drive there through the Oregon countryside removed from the ocean was appreciable.
  • Excellent place to visit and take photos you get a spectacular view of Mt.Hood and the valley. The only issue I'd say is parking sometimes 🅿️ during the day but aside from that it's a must visit! 5star⭐
