We tried to stop mid-day on a mid-week July day, but the parking area was packed and people were waiting for spots to open. We drove on to sample other parts of the Gorge and returned about 6 PM. By 6, there was plenty of room to park and most of the crowds were gone. You can hike all the... More

we love taking family/friends to visit the falls. you can easily hike to the top of the falls along a paved path. the hike up to the bridges is quickly done also. people were swimming in the creek below the falls, and tiny salmon were visible too. there was a wedding taking place too. love it here!

Drove a couple hours out of the way to go to the Falls. Falls were very pretty, but incredibly crowded. The crowd thinned if you hiked to the top. The lower area was handicapped accessible, and if you are driving through the area it is very easy to get to off the interstate. If someone was already in the area,... More

Wow! these falls are really amazing. The setting is beautiful and you can hike up to 2 different levels. Though the hike is a bit strenghuous. They have a gift shop for souveniers below and the parking can get filled quickly as this is a very popular falls.

The falls themselves are pretty wonderful and definitely worth the stop to see. But the parking situation was very bad on a Friday in July. It took about 30 minutes of driving around and waiting trapped in a line of others waiting for a space to get parked. The place was packed which certainly impacts your enjoyment. You should walk...

I took my 2 kids here (11 & 15) & we walked to the top & beyond. If you just want to see the falls, it is beautiful. We decided to make the climb to the top. I think it was 1 1/2 miles to top. It is steep somewhat narrow but 2 people can easily pass side by side.... More

We were a party of 10 in two cars on a Sunday afternoon. Parking was near impossible but somehow we managed to get two parking spots after a while. The grounds and hiking are the best. There are different levels of challenging trails and our party tried them all! Would recommend going mid-week when parking would be easier.

If you're in the area you have to take the Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway and see the waterfalls. Multnomah is the largest and most crowded/touristy. There is also Bridal Veil and Latourell Falls which are not as crowded and so breathtakingly beautiful as well.

There are numerous waterfall hikes in the same area without the tremendous crowds. The place was packed. From up above we could see that the interstate exit was backed up onto the interstate. If you do go, be sure to hike up to the top as the crowds definitely thin out, but go early in the morning and on a... More
