You can tailor your visit to the falls to what fits your lifestyle and how you're feeling at the time. You can stay at the base of the falls and get a great view of it while eating an ice cream cone. Or, you can walk .2 miles to the bridge area to get a closer look at the waterfall.... More

I wasn't feeling the best when I hiked up to the falls (I think my allergies were kicking into overdrive) but I absolutely loved the views and it was just as amazing -- if not more so than the photos make the falls look. I made the mistake of going on a day there was a massive 50km wilderness race... More

Gorgeous falls right off of the Hood river drive. Very cool how they allow you to hike to the top of the falls and look down.

The hiking guide books said fight the crowds, it's worth it. After having hiked to three other waterfalls in Oregon, we beg to differ. Perhaps when the water levels are higher it's more beautiful. Perhaps in the non-summer months it is less frenzied. But in late June, it was a disappointing madhouse. If you are able-bodied, go hike to another... More

The falls were beautiful. It's only a short distance to the bridge you see in the photo, but the hike to the top is difficult and steep - this from someone who does hike in woods and mountains. The hike to the top is not for the faint of heart so to speak. There are also lots of other falls... More

Walked through the area at the end of a nice hike in the gorge, Fat, obnoxious people and a Disneyland-esque environment made it hard to even look at the falls.

There are several waterfalls to choose from along the historic highway, and while this one gets the most attention, in my opinion this is not the best. To be sure, worth seeing and lovely, but IMO the Bridal Veil Falls are the top of the heap. As always, YMMV.

Beautiful waterfall. Hiking up to see waterfall more closely takes serious walking uphill (wouldn't want to take a young child on that trek), but the first outlook is accessible by all. Anyone in the area should at least stop to see.

while driving along historic Columbia River highway. We stopped to explore this beautiful waterfalls it was truly amazing and such a beautiful site. It has to be the highest falls I have ever seen, there is a path way that will take you to the bridge where you get a great view and picture taking. My. Hood is also viewable... More

Multnomah Falls is a short drive out the Gorge but well worth the trip. The scenery along the way is spectacular. The falls are quite impressive and great exercise to get to the top. They also have a very nice restaurant which can also be booked for a special event.
