Three Oregon Scenic Byways lead to the Old Parkdale Inn in the Upper Hood River Valley.
Travel through the Columbia River Gorge on the Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway, HCRH, and around majestic Mt Hood on the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway. For the sustainable traveler the HCRH and Mt Hood Scenic Byways combined create one of six Electric Byways in Oregon: the Mt Hood and Columbia River Gorge Electric Byway.
These Three Oregon Scenic Byways lead to the Old Parkdale Inn
Sustainable travelers on the Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge Electric Byway can now circumvent the mountain from Portland with charging stations strategically installed along the way. Thanks to a grant from Travel Oregon the Old Parkdale Inn installed two EV stations. Vehicles with a range of 60 miles or less should travel this electric byway in a counterclockwise direction.
The Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway
The Historic Columbia River Highway, is a national treasure, each view point so spectacular that people come from all over the world to marvel at the vistas. Construction of the HCRH began in 1913 and was considered one of the greatest engineering feats in the modern age.
The Mt Hood Scenic Byway
The Mt. Hood Scenic Byway takes visitors on a majestic route around Mt. Hood, the highest point in Oregon at 11,240′. One of Oregon’s 7 Wonders, the now-dormant volcano is believed to have been formed 11 to 14 million years ago, is home to 12 glaciers and the source for five rivers that run into the Columbia. A 2 mile detour brings you into Parkdale and the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast.
