The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area has temporarily closed all recreation areas except for Multnomah Falls, Wyeth Campground, Lower Klickitat, and Lower White Salmon Wild & Scenic Rivers, and the Sandy River Delta due to fire danger. Motorists can drive the Historic Columbia River Highway from Larch Mountain to Ainsworth, but parking along the highway or visiting sites within that section is prohibited. Oregon State Parks is temporarily closing parks along the Historic Highway from Larch Mountain to Ainsworth as well as the Angel’s Rest Trailhead and trail and Mount Defiance at Starvation Creek. All other parks, trails, and campgrounds remain open including Rooster Rock, Dabney, Lewis & Clark, Dalton Point, Mayer, the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail and associated day use areas. Memaloose, Viento, and Ainsworth Campgrounds remain open. The closures will remain in effect until conditions improve and will be re-evaluated daily.
