Very picturesque two-level waterfall. Lower viewing area and upper bridge allow a variety of views. Water flow in October is significantly less than during spring thaw, however they are still pretty and any type of year. I went for the photo-op, and have to say this is probably one of the few places that high noon would provide the best... More

The "double falls" are really spectacular and walking the 1 1/4 mile ALL UPHILL climb to the top was plenty challenging! The paved walkway was great and easy, despite the elevation, and I liked that it kept track of the 11 switchbacks (1 of 11, 2 of 11, etc.). If you travel to Portland, you really don't want to miss...

Stunning , beautiful, amazing the falls and area is all of that and more. There is a restaurant on site also a snack bar where you can get soft served ice cream cones. There is an area to sit and enjoy your snack along with the falls. Must walk at least up to the bridge.

When I wish to get out of the city and truly get back to nature, I always head to the Columbia Gorge. On the Oregon side of the river, you will find Multnomah Falls which is an incredible, natural wonder. It changes by season so it is always a perfect time to go. My favorite is actually on a rainy...

The falls are really great, it is free to park and to see the falls, really close to downtown only about 20-30 minutes drive. You can take your dog if they are on a leash and you pick up after them, they had baggies and a trash can for the waste. Bathrooms are onsite and free. This is a great... More

At a bare minimum you have to walk up the 0.2Mile paved path to the bridge, but if you are in decent physical shape and have 1-2hrs, you have to hike the 1.25miles to the top.

The whole gorge is unbelievable. It should be on everyone's bucket list. I was there on a rainy day and didn't want to leave. I know the US has a lot of beautiful landscapes, this is special.. go see it.

I have visited Multnomah Falls six times. It is so beautiful and a nice walk up to the bridge. Be careful if it has been raining because the stones can be slippery. There is a wonderful restaurant near the gift shops which serves the best desserts and coffee. Gorgeous fireplace and rustic atmosphere. A stop at Multnomah Falls is always... More

The falls were gorgeous. The hike to the top was a one mile paved hike with 11 switchbacks. Bring water and wear good shoes! It was a great first stop while exploring the Columbia River Gorge!
