Multnomah Falls is an Oregon must-see. I'm very glad that we made the trip from Portland. However, be aware that the summer afternoon traffic, even on a weekday, was horrendous, and parking spaces were rare commodities. It was also considerably more touristy than I expected. In spite of all this, it was extremely cool. Go early and go often.

This is a must see. There is stroller access and most likely accessible by wheelchair. We saw a lot of people with their children and their dogs. There is a gift shop and cafe. Also coffee available. Great place to get out and take a short hike.

Magnificent double falls. You may have to wait to get the picture you want without too many people in it, but people are generally nice about waiting and keeping out of your shot.

Viewed 5+ falls in the loop. The hike would not be too challenging to a novice. The falls were beautiful and helped cool us down in the summer weather.

We arrived around 5 pm and found plenty of parking available. Restrooms on site, as well as a snack bar and a full restaurant inside the lodge. The walk up to the bridge is relatively short and easy, but be careful with your step as parts are uneven and broken. You really need to go to the bridge. The view... More

These falls are beautiful. Yes,it is a little crowded in peak season, but well worth the stop and the crowd. The lodge is great also. It has a cute gift shop and a very nice restaurant which I also reviewed. We didn't have time to walk to the top since it was getting dark, but it was a quick and... More

First, arrive early to get parking. Like, whatever you think is early, arrive an hour earlier than that. There isn't really much to do in the visitor center, so don't use that opening as your target time to arrive. You can arrive much earlier and still go to the falls without any issues. As for the falls, I've seen quite... More

Fantastic waterfall, walk up is not so bad and views superb. Gift shop, restaurant and snack bar is available on site. Can be very crowded and patience is needed here. Enjoy views of falls from bridge close up and if you want, opportunity to walk to top is there. Stairs and ramps available. A must stop!!
