After several drives the length of the Gorge I find the wildfire impacts noticeable but not seriously impacting the beauty of the area. In fact some vistas of waterfalls and cliffs have been opened up. The burned areas are spotty and most seriously out of...More

I have visited over the years. It is a good hike but worth it. You can choose something that meets your physical stamina or just view the falls.

Easy access but parking is very hard on a weekend many people so be prepared to wait or walk a bit more. Beautiful waterfall very scenic and photogenic. Highly recommended easy hike.

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
