I agree with other reviewers that during peak season you should arrive early. We came early (9:00am) and easily had parking and the trail wasn't so crowded. By the time we came down (10:30) it was very congested and there were lines for parking. This is a lovely, but strenuous hike. I was surprised that there was no charge to... More

Great nature scene! Wonderful to view. You can walk all the way to the top if you're up for a good hike. Otherwise just take a pic from the bridge.

Multnomah falls are beautiful but the crowds are huge even during the week or early in the morning...I couldn't get a picture without 500 people in it.

Beautiful drive up the Columbia River. You can take the historic hwy exit to falls but parking will be a nightmare. Stay on 84 to exit 31, large parking lot accessible both from East & West bound traffic and a short walk under bridge to falls. Trail to halfway point of falls or just view from bottom.

Definitely worth the short scenic drive from Portland. We went on the weekend and it was a bit crowded but still manageable. Totally free which was nice. You can see it from the bottom, the middle or the top. We hiked up to the top and it was just beautiful. Not only the falls and the nature itself but the... More

Traveling along highway 84 along the Columbia river Gorge in Oregon, you will pass by a sign for Multnomah Falls. Don't pass it by. It is outstanding. We unfortunately were there on a Saturday in July. There were so many tourists there they had to close the main parking area, and we had to park in overflow parking 5 miles... More

This was the second waterfall we came upon during our drive though the Columbia River Gorge. It was beautiful but lots & lots of people were there. There are two parking lots.

This is a must see if you have the time and like nature. From the entry to the falls and the lodge, and on up to the bridge in front of the falls, it's a beauty to behold. We spent time at the different viewing levels and were just amazed by it all. Just lovely. Traffic and parking are crazy,... More

I love this place! It is beautiful. I prefer the view from the bottom. But go up on the bridge just because. Amazing.

It is a two and a half mile hike round trip to the top of the falls and back. I had done it before and knew that you don't actually get to see much from the top. All of the views that are spectacular or from the bottom and from the bridge. Both of those locations are filled with people.... More
