Wear comfortable shoes to do the hike. The path is stroller friendly if your arms are. Take a lunch and go to the top. The views are so pretty . We've gone in the winter and its freezing but so pretty and the summer is warm. You can wade in the streams.

As a native of the East Coast, this was my first real waterfall. I only wish it was warmer so I could travel to the top.

Cold and wet, but that's what we were expecting. The view is spectacular! Make sure you do the full walk to the top of the falls, it's so worth it! And bring your rain gear even if it's not raining, the falls produce their own "rain"

My wife and I travel all over the United States to look at water falls, and this one is among the best. At 620 feet, it is not the tallest waterfall we have ever seen, but it is the tallest waterfall in Oregon. It is gorgeous, and dominates the landscape which is saying a lot because the landscape in the... More

The main parking area around the falls definitely fill up quickly, and even on a rainy day it was relatively filled to capacity, so I recommend coming early. It is, however, free to park and definitely worth it. Walking up to the main part of the falls is wheelchair accessible and very easy. There's a half mile, easy-moderate path that... More

Third time visiting the Falls, this time with family. Set in a beautiful location along the Columbia River, this constant waterfall flows over this huge cliff, and then again below a concrete footbridge. Its a great hike with a sense of what makes America so beautiful. It does get very busy, we went early and during the week. A previous... More

Good luck trying to get a nice clear picture during summer when the crowds are at their peak. I understand the fuss though. It's a fantastic place. Just stand there and marvel at mother nature's beauty. Been here a number of times and it just never gets old.

We picked a very cold, windy and rainy day to visit in January. Even then there were hundreds of people on a Sunday. Not an ideal time by any stretch of the imagination to visit - yet Multnomah Falls still captivated and was still worth the effort to visit. A treasure that can easily be visited.

A short trip from downtown Portland, this little park is well maintained, clean and accommodating. The day we visited was after a number of below-freezing days which resulted in a portion of this lovely waterfall, stopped in time, crafted in ice. With minimal crowds, we were allowed uncluttered access to the bridge below the falls and the creek across the... More

Multnomah Falls never fails to impress. Not only are the falls absolutely beautiful but so is the surrounding area. The walk up the falls is not bad but wear sensible shoes. The view and the hike are free. The view is definitely worth the hike and take a camera. After you come back down take time to enjoy a meal... More
