What route to drive if you have just 6 hours to see the Gorge?

Jump to last reply

There's a wedding in Portland in mid June and there will be many out of town guests from the east coast. Some are coming just for the wedding and will only have about 6 hours on a weekend day to "experience" driving through the gorge.

I want to give people a guide of sorts with a suggested driving route and options of things to stop at along the way. Essentially, the most bang for their buck time wise and beauty wise. What stops along the way are highly suggested? I imagine they will want to get out and see some water falls, not sure the best ones to recommend that don't require real hiking in to.

Of course i realize they won't be able to do the Gorge justice but it seems to me it is still worth their while. Any help you have I would appreciate. From research I did on line, I came up with the following links. Are these any good or can you give me a link that's best? Thank you.
