A lot of waterfalls, hiking trails and one scenic drive... can easily spend a whole day there. Multnomah Falls and Oneonta Gorge are my favorites!

We took a whole day to drive the road, have also driven a few miles on the Washington side. Nevertheless, we couldn't see all the waterfalls; you have to hike to some of them and then you just don't have enough time. We saw the...More

Though by now much has been lost to forest fires, there's so much natural beauty that the drive is really worth it. The river itself is beautiful, and you'll want to take lots of pictures.

This is NOT Disney. And although the parking can be difficult at many of the waterfalls, there is a lot to see and enjoy, including fisheries (really interesting), river sports, scenic drives, wineries... Just a great place to kick back with just enough to see...More

As you drive along I-84 or pull off to see up close this is one of the highlights of the drive from the coast east. Unfortunately the current wild fires have really taken their toll on this drive, but the falls is still wonderful
