Seattle, WA to Portland, OR - Train or drive?

Jump to last reply

We are going in May for a long weekend (4 days) and are deciding if we want to rent a car or not.

The train is more expensive and means we don't have a car once we get to OR. On the other hand, it means we don't have to drive. Is the train ride scenic or not?

We plan to do a lot of hiking and park-visiting. If we rent a car should we take a scenic route or should we leave the scenery to the parks and just take the quickest drive? (That is, if the scenic route is really gorgeous, we'll sacrifice time for it but otherwise, we can get our share of natural beauty in the parks).
