All reviews gift shop benson bridge beautiful waterfall walk up mile hike off the highway parking spot paved trail viewing area scenic route easy hike visitor center portland area worth the effort great hike worth the trip vista house
The hike was great! Many places to take photos and really take in nature. The falls alone is a spectacular view in itself. The hike is a good “challenge” but not difficult at all. However it was crowded and the lot does get full because...More
I visited on a solo trip at the end of January. I first attempted the waterfall at 9 am but I decided to turn around because there were so many people! Tried again the next morning and arrived at 7:15 instead and it was perfect!...More
It was a great and easy ride from our hotel in Portland. We were supposed to go to Voodoo Doughnuts for breakfast, but our GPS messed us up. We went toward our destination of Multnomah Falls, hoping to find a nice place for breakfast. It...More
Even with the fires in 2017 the area is still beautiful. The drive is the best in a smaller vehicle. We tried it once towing a trailer and couldn't find a place to park. Lots of fun, short, beautiful hikes
Stopped by on a weekday morning while visiting my daughter & SIL & had no problem with parking. It was a bit chilly & windy, but we were able to hike to the top. My hubby stopped at the halfway point, but I was determined...More
This is a unique water fall. It is literally on the side of the interstate. The parking lot is between the north and south lanes of Interstate 84. There is a large parking lot with a tunnel to go beneath the interstate lanes. The falls...More
The weather in the area is not going to be very good. Usually rainy and damp. Better to view it later although you can see it from the road in your car but not the best of times. I was there in October snd it was fine. As... More
The weather in the area is not going to be very good. Usually rainy and damp. Better to view it later although you can see it from the road in your car but not the best of times. I was there in October snd it was fine. As you know the weather in greater Portland is iffy.

I was last at Multnomah Falls in September 2018. The Fire damage is extensive in the upper Falls, there is fencing to prevent loose debris from falling and the trails are closed. The Falls are still beautiful and worth the trip! There is a gift shop and several opportunities for some great pictures. We were there on a Sunday and had to park far away and take a shuttle. Still worth it!!

Hi, Yes, the falls are right off of the highway. There is a parking lot and then you walk under the highway to go to the falls. There is no gate or anything to block you. You can walk to an observation point close to the falls which is also next to the Multnomah Lodge. The falls are beautiful and worth seeing.
There was a terrible "Eagle Creek" fire in 2017. Much of the woods in this area burned and most trails are closed until later this year. The closures are for safety and also to allow time to repair them. I don't believe that you can go on the bridge (that is right in front of the falls) right now, but I could be wrong about this. I went a month ago (June) and the bridge was still closed. It closed because the trail that goes to the bridge was closed.
I would call Multnomah Lodge and ask them about the bridge.
Happy Travels, Michelle
Road trip from California to Oregon - please advice!! (5 Replies)
We are planning a road trip from Fremont,CA to Oregon in the next 2 weeks and would like to see Mt. Shasta ,Crater Lake,Multnomah Falls. I realize the drive from Crater Lake to Multnomah Falls is probably about 5-6 hours. Is this a doable itinerary in 7 days? If not, how many days do we need? I also want to take my 11 year old on a jet boat tour on the Rogue River and sand buggy tours in Florence but not sure where and when can I fit those activities into our trip. Would greatly...More

I would go up 101 through the redwoods to Gold Beach (jetboat into the Rogue River Wilderness), continue to Florence (dunes), then to Cape Perpetua and Newport (aquarium). Then to Portland and Multnomah Falls. Then head straight south on I-5 past Mt. Shasta. Skip Crater Lake if smoke from fires is affecting visibility (and health). If you like this rough itinerary we can help you fine tune it.
Thanksgiving 2011 in Portland - What to Do?! (14 Replies)
Hi, I moved to Portland, OR this past January with my two little boys and husband. As such, we haven't experienced the holidays yet in this town. My family (brothers, sis-in-law, niece (6), nephew (10) & mom (75)) is thinking about visiting us for the holiday. What is there to do around town during that weekend? It will be cold and rainy, right? The coast or Multnomah Falls will probably not be a good idea then...any help is appreciated! I want to get them out of the house and show them as...More

I-84 shut between Hood River and Multnomah Falls due to fire (27 Replies)
Just saw this online. For all wanna-be hikers, please take note. Big east winds picking up. :(

I hope everyone affected is safe. We are currently in Portland and due to leave for CRG and Hood River on Wednesday and then continuing on to Astoria via Mt Hood on Thursday. I assume we need to change our plans asap and stay away from the historic highway and Mt Hood? Or is it still possible to see Mt Hood?
