  • Walk up to the top of the column! It's worth the walk!
  • The nice folks at the Cannery Pier Hotel highly recommend this landmark with 360 degree views of Astoria peninsula!
  • A wonderful place for a picnic and some fun. Climb the column for an absolutely breath taking view of all of Astoria, don't forget to grab a wooden airplane from the shop to toss off the top!
  • Perfect spot for a picnic lunch.
  • Sooooo f'ing cool! You can see the Pacific on a clear day
  • The view can't be beat- buy an airplane at the gift shop, climb the column stairs and let'er fly!
  • Free to go up, you have to pay for parking though, but the pass lasts all year! 360 views of Astoria and beyond! Don't buy a glider, find them on the ground and toss them off the top!
  • Gliders from the gift shop are fun, kids also liked bubbles.
  • Let it fly
  • A great place to spend the day.
  • Have to go climb it at least once! Stairs are very narrow. Be wary if youre claustrophobic.
  • The view was amazing!
  • Fun for kids (because of the gliders) and the adults (for the amazing view).
  • This is amazing, definitely worth the climb...even though the wind and hail battered us once we got to the top
  • What an awesome little piece of Astoria history! Make sure to catch a sunset or sunrise.
  • I love this view, it beautiful!!!!!!
  • Great place to hang out and visit. Best of all it's only $2.00 for a season parking pass. Can't beat that deal.
  • Worth the climb!
  • Best view I've ever seen.
  • Don't look down while on the stairs. Trust me.
