Easy off Hwy parking. Facilities available. Great picture taking op. Wear good comfy shoes if going to hike up to the top, and take some water. The view from up at the top is breath taking! You can hike in and around the loop of 6 miles or more, and visit all 7 of the falls. The waters are very... More

This is probably the biggest attraction of all the falls, as evidenced by the larger crowds, insufficient parking, overpriced food and tchotchke. That being said, it is an impressive site. You can walk to the first viewing platform and take in the serious breadth of the place. Steps to the right will take you to Benson’s Bridge (named after the... More

Fun to see in the early summer or when the rains return in the fall. But spectacular to view in the winter if we get a very cold couple of days. Not only Multnomah but all the falls along the road can ice over and when they do it is a spectacular that man can't duplicate. Doesn't happen often but... More

An easy walk from a parking lot right off the highway and you will find yourself at the bottom of this beautiful waterfall. You have the option to enjoy the incredible view from the base or hike up the winding trail to the top. There is a stone bridge that actually crosses half way up the falls and gives breath... More

If you just want to get out of the car and look you can. It is a nice rest off the interstate. We did the 6 mile loop where we could see 7 falls. That was a great hike. My two girls 4 and 7 did it without issue but were tired at the end. It was a 1200 elevation... More

This was a beautiful photo stop that included a restaurant, gift shop, ice cream, snow cones, etc. There was a nice path that led to several scenic photo stops and also an area where small children were enjoying wading in the water!

It is very steep! Sore legs the next day but there is a cool, clean stream at the top you can get in to. The kids LOVED IT,

This is definitely worth the stop. However it is incredibly busy. I suggest either getting there early or be patient and wait on parking.

The falls plummet 620 feet. You can take a 1/4 mile hike up the mountain side on manmade stairs to a viewing bridge or continue on another 3/4 mile hike up to the top of the falls. The grounds and parking are jam packed. There is a restaurant there that looked nice from the outside and came recommended by a... More
