If you are seeking the fastest way to get to Maryhill from most locations, the fastest thing to do is to take Interstate 84 and cross at the Samuel Hill Bridge from Biggs Junction, Oregon.
Highway 14 on the Washington side of the river is a narrow 2 lane road, and can be very slow if you get stuck behind some slow moving object. It can also be quite dangerous in places due to the curves and elevation of the highway over 1,000 feet above the river in places.
It should be noted that using this bridge avoids a number of local Maryhill attractions such as several vineards, and you might want to wander around a little bit, or take highway 14 to The Dalles and return to Interstate 84 there.
The bridge replaced a ferry that operated until 1962.

A great little fruit and vegetable stand enroute to the infamous American Stonehenge along the Columbia River. Friendly staff and good prices, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as tasty preserves. They also have dried fruits, nuts, chocolates, and other local farmer made products. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

Maryhill Museum-$7.00 admission. I guess it's worth the price if you are really into Rodin.

One of the great features of the outdoor sculptures at the Maryhill museum is that they all have titles and ldescriptions about what the artist was thinging about for inspiration or otherwise a little information from the artist about what the work is representing.
Every single sculpture in their main sculpture garden has one of these signs.
Unfortunately, when I visited in August of 2007, it appeared that the massive, bizarre concrete sculpture overlooking the Columbia had lost its information and title sign.
This is unfortunate, as it would be very interesting to know what this thing is titled, and what it represents.
The appearance is a bit like the Columbia River fish ladders, only turned on its side.
Regardless, the contrast between this structure and the hills around it, and the scenery of the Columbia River it overlooks, has an interesting effect.
I have put this sculpture into the "Off the Beaten Path" category because the sculpure is near the RV parking lot for the Maryhill Museum of Art. Even when this parking lot was full of overflow vehicles during their annual art show, few people wandered over to the sculpture and the scenic pathway that winds through the sculpture and provides a great view of the surrounding scenery.
The web site below is for the Maryhill Museum of Art, but you do not have to pay admission to visit this particular sculpture as it is outside.
