The Oneonta Gorge… At one time was the gateway for cars to the east

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Respect Realty LLC 200311024


Prior to the 1940’s this bridge and tunnel were the path that cars took east and west before bigger, better roads were built and eventually Interstate 84 was put in. In the 1940’s though, before ways to shore up the safety issues, they had to close the tunnel because of falling debris. Today it has been re-opened as safe as ever as a hiking trail along the historic Columbia Gorge Highway.

Oneonta Gorge

If you are up for a good hike, there are many, many hiking trails in the Gorge that are beautiful with plants, animals and amazing waterfalls. (So bring your camera)

Todd, The Portland area has so many wonderful places to explore and discover.  Fortunately, the same can be said for this end of the Willamette Valley.  Thanks for helping me to learn about these places from an insider's point of view.  I'll expand my explorations in your direction some day.

I drive through that area several times a years just to relax nd check out the scenery. The old highway along the gorge is perfect for a summer day in my convertible.
