If you are in to do the long hike (beyond the bridge) be prepared to walk uphill a long long ways. It's a relief when you finally start going down. We Passed people on the way down while they were coming up and they were asking how much further until it's not uphill. I think some people just turned around.... More

Hard not giving the fifth star on this gem. Two things visitors from out of the area should know: It's right by the interstate, yet that doesn't detract a bit from the experience. It's water supply is year round, so whenever you visit you will be satisfied. And if you have younger travelers with you, it doesn't take a lot... More

Unfortunately, the bridge across the trail was damaged in a rockslide so we were unable to climb to the top of the falls. However, the view even from the bottom is beautiful. The falls are easy to access from exit 31 on I84. There is no fee to park or follow the path. There is a restaurant at the base... More

If you are in the area, this is a " must see" beautiful waterfall. Better yet, take the scenic route from the exit to Vista House (high on a hill over looking the Columbia River) and see multiple large, powerful waterfalls; some with short hikes, but many can be seen from the road. If you want a little exercise, or... More

If you are staying near Portland this is a must visit. The drive is pretty and the falls are just like the pictures you see, amazing. There is also a little gift shop and restaurant (which we didn't eat at).

When in the area or even if you are not... you gotta see the falls. There are abosultely amazing and the view around them is gorgeous. We went during September and the weather was perfect! Just a little chilly but not bad.

Falls are beautiful. There are actually several different falls within a 5 mile distance and all of them are worth seeing and hiking around.

....then you're gonna love this place. Located about 20 miles east of Portland, OR, along the Columbia River, is Multinomah Falls, Waheesha Falls and Horsetail Falls. Absolutely spectacular!!! There are hiking trails along all three falls that are paved, well marked and safe. There is a visitor center, gift ship and restaurant at Multinomah. If in the Portland area and... More

These falls just keep going... up and up and up... This is a very beautiful place to visit and I highly recommend it. I am told the bridge across the falls provides amazing views but unfortunately, when I was there, a rock had just fallen on it and extensively damaged the bridge so it was closed :-(. Right within walking... More

Hiked all the way to the top (not easy, take plenty of water and time to do it, have sturdy shoes), there is a very steep incline, so pace yourself appropriately. Otherwise - gorgeous views from the top and well worth the time. Reward yourself with some ice cream on the way to your car.
