A six-mile section of the western portion of the Historic Columbia River Highway from Larch Mountain Road to Bridal Veil re-opened Wednesday morning, eleven weeks after it was closed by the Eagle Creek Fire. Vista House at Crown Point, one of the most popular attractions the Gorge, was also scheduled to re-open Wednesday. The road has been closed since September 4. Guy Talbot State Park is open, with a short trail leading from the parking area to Latourell Falls, and Bridal Veil State Park and trail is also open. Hikers should expect winter conditions at both locations. The Historic Columbia River Highway remains closed between just east of Bridal Veil and Ainsworth with no timeline set for re-opening. Multnomah Falls Lodge and the Multnomah Falls parking area on I-84 may re-open by the end of the year.
