This is second largest waterfall in the US and is worth a visit. Approach from the historical highway for a better experience. Hike to top to view the falls, it is a challenge so leave 60mins for this.

This was on our must do list when in Oregon, but unfortunately we were visiting at the beginning of June on a not so warm day, and the water was just too frigid to do the whole hike. It was bone chillingly cold when we first set out and had to make the executive decision to just take pictures of... More

Make sure you wear good shoes and can climb over fallen trees (over the river). The view is totally worth it.

I've been visiting the waterfalls, trails, and parks on both sides of the Columbia River Gorge for 60 years. I'm always awed.

we planned our whole Oregon road trip around this one trail. And it was everything I hoped it would be. It was so beautiful and amazing. Everything was so green. I could easily make this trip again. I was so thrilled that it was exactly as the pictures made it seem, even better. Pictures barely do it justice.

The physical address of this gorge is approximately 48700 E. Historic Columbia River Hwy, merely 4 minutes away from the famous Multnomah Falls (50000 E. Historic Columbia River Hwy). As you're driving east coming from the falls, the gorge is before the tunnel on your right with a small parking lot. There is a very subtle flight of stairs you... More

Not for the clumsy, plan to get wet to truly enjoy it. Feels like you're in a scene from one of the Lord of the rings movies.

On spring, this gorge is so flush green with wet moss on the trunks and the water melting down the mountain is ice cold. To everyone's thrill these two are the only source of what we call a "trail" in an usual hike. You have to jump ,crawl, hop over the tree trunks, pull your knees and walk over the... More

Great hike into a waterfall through a narrow canyon off of I-84 near Mulnomah Falls. Very busy on summer weekends. Plan to get wet and crawl over logs to get to the falls but great fun.

Bring shoes that you can get wet on a hot day. You will be wading through cool waters in a cave-like experience that will help you to forget the sun-baked temps in Portland.
