If you own a camera, this is a place you would want to go to sharpen your photo skills. This place boasts of beautiful vistas of the Columbia River Gorge (even a vista of the Vista House). There are not a lot of amenities here, basically a parking lot and walkways on the edge of a bluff in the middle of nowhere. Don't miss it if you can!

On a clear sunny day this is an amazing viewpoint with a fantastic view up the Columbia River gorge for miles. Well worth stopping in to take in the view.

You can see all over the area and view just as nice as the one from the Vista house and see all the fall colors

The Portland Women's Forum is a lookout and viewpoint on the Historical Columbia River Gorge Highway. I is near the west end of the Columbia River Gorge and overlooks the Columbia River and the Vista House to the east. You are at least a thousand feet above the river and can see miles of the gorge to the east. You should not venture past the rock wall, as there is a sheer cliff that is not visible due to all the growth of trees and bushes. It is a nice place for a picnic and there are tables, and a grassy area there. I can not remember if there were bathroom facilities there, but there are at the Vista House, just a few miles to the east on Highway 30 aka The Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway.
