Best "rest stop" in the northwest

The usual exit will not get you there as the road is closed. We continued to exit 35. So glad we did

It's a beautiful waterfall and a must visit in Portland. The spray & sprinkle of the gushing waterfall makes it necessary to carry a rain-jacket. There is quite a hike upto the top of the waterfall if one chooses to do that. There is a restaurant, a gift shop n restrooms at the foot of the fall. Overall, a great... More

The falls are very beautiful and the trails are gorgeous. It rained all afternoon on the March day that we went but that did not detract from the hike or the waterfalls. There was still snow on the ground but I would highly recommend this place regardless of the season. We hiked to the overlook and back (about 1.5 hours)... More

If you're in the Portland area, don't miss this waterfall on Route 30 in the Columbia River Gorge. It is one of the most spectacular falls in the United States.

By the looks of the size of the parking lot, this place could get crowded. We went early in the morning before the crowds came. We were able to get unobstructed views of this beautiful fall. There is a nice hike but going ALL the way to the top could be strenuous for some people.

Around 10:30 we drove to the Multnomah falls. We took the first stop at the Wahkeena falls and did a short hike to the falls. Next we went to the Multnomah falls, which drops in two major steps, split into an upper and lower falls. We had some coffee there and did some souvenir shopping. The drive was scenic and... More

Even the drive to the falls with the Columbia River on one side and cliffs with occasional waterfalls on the other was beautiful. There is plenty of parking and a short walk to the falls, which are high and huge and majestic. There are trails all around if you are feeling adventurous. Definitely worth the 30 minute drive from Portland.
