A must see on the Columbia River Gorge and a great place to eat.

We came here on Memorial Day 2015 and had an early reservation for breakfast at the Lodge that turned out to be VERY smart. Our breakfast was outstanding. Make a reservation and... read more

We came here on Memorial Day 2015 and had an early reservation for breakfast at the Lodge that turned out to be VERY smart. Our breakfast was outstanding. Make a reservation and ask to be seated in the atrium in nice weather. (Tip from Portland you'll end up in a long line of very slow moving traffic to get there)... More

We have been waiting a couple of years to visit Multnomah Falls and she did not disappoint. Words and pictures cannot do the falls justice. If you walk up to the middle section be prepared for some water mist. We tried to go on Sunday but due to the crowds we waited to see the falls on Monday. The crowds... More

The falls are extremely high and the viewing area is user friendly and very large. Bathroom facilities and parking are located near the falls with only a minimal amount of walking.

Multnomah falls has such awesome reviews for a reason... it's awesome. Those reviews truly have been well earned. My visit took place on the Saturday during Memorial Day Weekend. Even with the attraction bring packed!, the waterfalls were just as majestic. Parking can be very challenging, but your patience is truly rewarded. Not only are you able to view the... More

Truly a joy visiting the falls and marveled the wonderful views. We enjoy walking the nature trails and taking in the scenic views.

This is the highest of about 8 falls along old 30. It was the most impressive view we saw on our 5 day vacation only about 20 miles outside Portland. It helped that the sun was out. Further down the road was a scenic overlook and there were some nice trails near each waterfall. We saw almost everything starting mid... More

A must-do if you visit Portland. The fall is spectacular and fun. One of the iconic views that identifies Oregon as one of the most beautiful states in the USA. Be sure to walk the trail up to the bridge. We went on a Saturday and it gets busy on the weekends. There is a good gift shop that seems... More

If you can arrive at Multnomah Falls by 10 a.m., you can usually get a parking spot on the Historic Highway parking area. (From I-84 heading east from Portland, take the Bridal Veil exit) Wear good walking shoes to take the switchback trail to the top of the falls. If you stop to catch your breath , notice wildflowers or... More

Worth the drive and stop to see this beauty. Visit the centre where it tells how it all came to be from the Ice Sheet of Canada :)

You won't want to miss this one, the highest of the waterfalls in the gorge. There's a lovely bridge across the falls that gets you close to the action (and the mist). The hike to that is easy. Hike to top of upper falls is more difficult. Base of lower falls is handicapped accessible, so you can see that in... More
