Description

A Bus Tour in Partnership with the Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway

 

The Columbia River Highway is an outstanding example of highway development in 20th-century America because of its pioneering advances in road design. It was Samuel C. Lancaster’s single most important contribution to the fields of civil engineering and landscape architecture. It was also the first scenic highway in the United States. The Columbia River Highway’s aesthetic and engineering achievements greatly influenced the design and construction of other scenic highways in the 1920s and 1930s.

 

Join us as we help celebrate the Centennial of the Historic Columbia River Highway. This all-day bus tour will take you from Troutdale to Hood River and back. Local historians and transportation professionals will share their insight and expertise along the historic tour route.

 

Bring a sack lunch or you can purchase your own meal when we stop for a break in Cascade Locks.

 

Each tour goer will also get a commemorative tour booklet filled with historic and location information.

 

The two buses we'll be taking are ADA accessible reproductions of 1930s buses once used at Yellowstone Park. 

 

 

Seating is Very Limited. Pre-Registration is Required.
