From exit 44 on I-84 at Cascade Locks, travel east on the frontage road that parallels the freeway. Turn left on NW Forest Lane and go over the freeway. Take the first right after passing over the freeway (Industrial Park Way) and explore this whole area. Return to the frontage road by passing back over the freeway and continue on east on the frontage road. Shortly, you will come to Herman Creek Road. Take this road back over the freeway to view the cove.
