This is a "must see" for all travelers in the Columbia River Gorge area. These waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous, with nature in all its majesty. Parking was easy, the walkways were easy to negotiate and the lodge / gift shop was lovely. Everyone was helpful and it was a beautiful stop. We will have to come back in the different... More

Really spectacular. It is the second best of the falls along this scenic route. One of those really spectacular natural wonders

Parking was easily accessible. Walk to the falls was easy. Amazing view from the bottom or take the short hike up to the bridge for a closer look. Gift shop was not too over priced. Definitely worth the time to visit.

A wonderful place to visit on your trip to the Columbia River Gorge. We went after Labor Day so the crowds were not too bad. The hike to the top of the falls I would rate as moderate. Unfortunately, we did not know that if we went past the main falls, there were a number of other falls not to... More

Parking could be exceptionally difficult, but we arrived just as someone was pulling out of the very first parking spot. Trying to leave from that very spot was difficult as there was a line of cars waiting for spots to open up. The falls are great! We stopped first at the lower level, then made our way to the bridge.... More

Driving the old highway from Portland was very scenic. There were multiple waterfalls just as spectacular as Multnomah Falls and did not have the throng of tourists. One difference, there are facilities at Multnomah Falls that offer food, gift shop and restrooms. The old road parallels the interstate but it is only a two lane road...don't be in a hurry.

Multnomah Falls...you've seen pictures of it. People have told you about it. But, OMG - nothing really compares with traveling and seeing the sights than being there in person?!! Driving along the Columbia River Gorge near Portland, OR creates an ever-anticipating thrill ride of "are we there yet" moment... And then there it is! Bam! Much like driving to Yosemite... More

Multnomah Falls is a very easy trip from Portland and a great stop over on the way to Hood River. To avoid the crowds (especially in the tour bus heavy summer) and to find a spot in the parking lot, go early or stop late. The hike to the top of the falls is short but it can be a... More

We lived near Niagara Falls NY for 60 years, so it's difficult to get excited about a skinny little waterfall. However, it was set up very nicely with access from several different vantage points. There were very strong winds, and a tree had fallen on power lines and sparked a fire, so the power was out in both the gift... More

There are several views of this beautiful waterfall. From the bottom you see the entire, multi-level fall and witness how it calms into a small stream. Or you can climb a not-too-difficult path to the bridge at midway up the falls. The bridge is a collection point for hikers and photographers and can be a bottleneck, but most people are... More
