These falls are some of the most beautiful in the United States. I believe it's one of the tallest waterfalls of the entire states. It's so beautiful and there's a break. Where the Falls come down and get the first level and there's an old foot bridge that crosses from one side of the fall to the other so you... More

This is an absolutely beautiful trip to take. The view is gorgeous, the hike very nice and it is just a great thing to behold God's beautiful creation. We loved having lunch at the restaurant onsite too. Just a great thing to do alone or as a family! I actually went in 2013, but that date isn't an option, since... More

This is our go to spot to bring out of town visitors. There is a short super easy hike or a longer more dramatic hike or just a great photo opportunity right in front of the falls. This is an easy pull off the highway, and well worth the drive (and sometimes the crowds). The view never gets old. We... More

Beautiful area. Trail to the top, not too far to walk. Restaurant / bar is also very good. Wood burning fireplace. Staff is very accommodating.

Winter often frosts Multnomah Falls with some extra "bling" during the winter. Here is a photo from just before Thanksgiving. No crowds in winter, and best-ever hot cocoa!

This is an amazing waterfall; however, it is extremely busy when the weather is nice. There are numerous other falls that are quite less frequented if you travel the Historic Highway rather than the interstate. Take one of the exits on either side of Multnomah Falls and travel OR HWY 30 to see these amazing natural wonders. Consider going in... More

I was not planning to go but a friend in Portland Oregan suggested it and am I glad she did. What a spectacular sight! It was very visitor friendly and we had a great time!

The falls are beautiful any time of year. The hike is doable and worth the alternate view. I've been here many times with my children over the years and we always enjoy it. It's always crowded but a must see!

This has been on my "must shoot" list for a long time now and we finally made it last weekend. We dealt with very windy conditions up to the falls, and freezing temps when we got there but my oh my was it ever worth it. Being a cold snap, the water is freezing all around the falls and the... More

We tried to make the 2.6 mile climb to the top, but only went about halfway as it got pretty steep. The view is still spectacular at the half way mark of the falls and the columbia river gorge below.
