Scenic Drive from Bend to Portland

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! My husband and I will be finishing up our last leg of our Northwest adventure this summer. We will be spending Thursday Aug 1 around Crater Lake, then driving up to Bend and staying the night there. The next morning, Friday, we plan to wake up and drive up to Portland where we will stay the night at a hotel in Portland. Then fly back home to the East coast on Saturday night. We want to spend as much time as we can on Friday seeing the sights of the Columbia River and all of the waterfalls, ect.

My question is, what is the best route to take from Bend to Portland? We want to drive along the Columbia River Hwy but I don't want to go straight to Portland and then drive west towards he Columbia River if that is backtracking. Also I didnt know if Sisters was worth a drive through by going on Hwy 20 or should I just go up 97?

Any advice for us about this leg of the trip would be greatly appreciated. We don't mind adding some extra mileage if it will give us better views along the way :)
