Doug's Beach Directions
Directions from the Portland/Seattle area are to drive east on I-84 until you reach Hood River. Take the 3rd Hood River exit # 64 and turn left (north) back under the freeway towards the river. After the stop sign, proceed straight across the Hood River Tollbridge (75 cent toll fee) and into Washington. At the end of the bridge, take a right turn onto HWY 14 and drive into Bingen. Continue straight on HWY 14 for about 15 miles through the town of Lyle and begin looking for the parking area after the 1st tunnel you encounter. A large parking area is provided with a single railroad crossing area at the east end. Wash. State Parks parking pass no longer required.
