Vista House current Hours Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10 am - 4 pm, weather permitting Starting March 9, 2018, Vista House will be open 9 am - 4 pm 7 days a week, weather permitting. While the eminent hazard trees and rock fall dangers have been mitigated, travelers need to remember that the Gorge is chronically prone to slides and should continue to use caution and respect all closure points and private property boundaries. The opening of the roadway from Larch Mountain Road to Bridal Veil now provides access to local businesses and the post office, but restrictions remain on recreation. Here is a look at what’s open and what’s closed in the newly-opened area. No stopping or parking is allowed on the shoulders. • Angel’s Rest parking lot and trail are closed. • Shepperd’s Dell Falls trail is closed. Crews installed no parking signs in places along the highway and put up barricades to keep travelers from using recreation areas that remain closed. The Historic Columbia River Highway remains closed between just east of Bridal Veil and Ainsworth with no timeline set for re-opening. Visitors are reminded to respect private property rights and closures and be aware of the hazards that exist as winter sets in. Fire impacts have heightened these risks. At Bridal Veil, eastbound travelers on the Historic Columbia River Highway can turn west onto Interstate 84 or turn around and go west back up the Historic Highway. As a reminder, there is no I-84 eastbound access from the Bridal Veil interchange. Crews from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Oregon Department of Transportation have all been working in recent weeks to remove immediate roadway hazards from this newly-opened section of the Historic Columbia River Highway.
