Upper Larch Mountain Road reopens for season
Multnomah County Transportation has reopened the upper section of Larch Mountain Road in the Columbia Gorge for recreational access. Every autumn the county closes upper Larch Mountain Road by installing a snow gate near milepost 10.  The closure protects the traveling public from adverse weather conditions and reduces maintenance costs associated with snow removal.  The gate is opened each spring. 
Larch Mountain Road is the highest road in Multnomah County, reaching an altitude of 4055 feet.  At the road’s summit there is a parking lot for visitors to the Sherrard Point lookout. The snow gate is at an elevation of approximately 2300 feet.  Multnomah County maintains Larch Mountain Road and 269 miles of roads.  For more information, visit https://multco.us/roads/larch-mountain-road.
