Multnomah County will reopen the upper section of Larch Mountain Road on Monday, June 10 at 4:30 p.m. 

Larch Mountain Road is the highest road in Multnomah County‚Äôs jurisdiction, reaching an altitude of 4055 feet in east county.  Each winter, the county closes public access to recreation areas off upper Larch Mountain Road by installing a snow gate near milepost 10.  Opening the mountain road for recreational users happens when snow levels decline.  Reopening the gate provides vehicle access all the way to the view parking lot at milepost 14.5 and the walking trail to Sherrard Point. 

Multnomah County maintains 300 miles of roads and bridges, including Larch Mountain Road.  For more information, visit
