We had been driving along the scenic route (no, don't take the highway--the scenic route might take longer, but the views along it are amazing and the scenic route gives you access to a whole bunch of waterfalls, some of which include terrific hiking opportunities). I read the TripAdvisor reviews before we came down in early August and noticed that... More

Or early in the morning. This place was crazy crowded. We had to wait in a very long line just to drive to the parking lot. We also took the scenic route, which added about an hour to our trip from Portland. Just take the highway! We didn't even get out. It was so crowded. But what we did see... More

This is close to the Colombia River Gorge and worth the drive. There is a small tourist area with bathrooms and a walk up to the falls at 2 levels. We just walked to the first level but you can walk farther and cross the bridge above. Beautiful

It is impossible to conceive the grandeur of Multnomah Falls until you stand close enough to feel the thunder under your feet andl the spray on your face. The first fall of well over 500 feet lands in a plunge pool which immediately spills over in a second avalance of foam. Set against a landscape of varying shades of green... More

Great destination for out of town visitors. Can be extremely crowded and difficult to find parking but after a short wait we found a spot. Try sunday brunch at the lodge.

Oregon is famous for its nature attractions and this one is one of them. We were told that because of the dry season it has been, the falls were not as full and pretty as they have been but still it was an amazing view. Lots of people at the time but still open enough to enjoy it. It was... More

This is so worth visiting, if you are in the area. This is just a beautiful waterfall. But if you are visiting the place in the busy season, please be aware that there is not a lot of parking spaces. We were here on a Saturday in August after noon and the parking lot was terribly full. So full that... More

This was a great and awesome waterfall with a cool hike there. It was PACKED the day we drove through - on a Saturday. Parking was very hard to come by. We parked 0.5 miles up the road and hiked over. Despite all the tourists, this is a lovely waterfall and definitely worth a stop on historic route 30.

Neat waterfall! Worth visiting but please note that it's always busy, avoid weekends and busy holiday travel. I only hiked up to the bridge but that was an easy hike that I was able to accomplish in flip flops.

Mother Nature at her best. Beautiful falls with many views depending on how far you want to walk. Even the shortest walk was breathtaking. Got ice cream and enjoyed the view.
