End of the trail, start of adventure.

We’re the end of some trails and the beginning of so many others. Astoria, Oregon, is both a gateway and a hub of a region steeped in history. And standing at the top of the Astoria Column, you can envision the hardships, bravery, and awe experienced by the first people to live in this corner of the world. Dedicated by the Great Northern Railway in 1926, the Astoria Column stands today as a national monument to those people, a uniquely Northwest work of art, and an unparalleled view of the meeting of many roads. Come start your journey to the region here, with us.

Location and fees

The Astoria Column is located at 1 Coxcomb Drive. Directional signs can be found on 14th and 16th Streets. There is no cost to visit the park site or to enter the Column. Parking is $5 per vehicle, and serves as a valid pass for the remainder of the calendar year.


Large vehicle parking at the column is very limited. We ask that large groups contact us to schedule their visit by calling the gift shop at 503.325 2963.


Although the Column itself is not wheelchair accessible, the grounds, park, and gift shop are. If your group requires special consideration, please let us know in advance of your trip by calling the gift shop at 503 325 2963, and we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs.
