We visited over the Easter weekend and found the falls really busy. We were fortunate enough to come back a few days later when it was much quieter and less tourists to enjoy the falls. It is one of the best falls in the area and an easy walk from the carpark to the lower falls. Also an easy walk... More

This was a nice site to visit. There are several picturesque stops along the hike to the top to snap some photos. The trails are also paved and it is possible take a stroller along the trail though it can get narrow at points. A nice location adjacent to the Mulnomah Falls Restaurant and Lodge and gift center with tons... More

The falls are absolutely spectacular. We parked at the information center and just walked under the tunnel to get there. There's a small restaurant and gift shop on premise. Nice homemade fudge. Easy walk to the bridge but a bit of a hike to go all the way up. 11 switchbacks.

This waterfall is not only beautiful, but you can feel the power of the water rushing over the rocks as it falls from high above.

This is an amazing place. Incredible falls. I was amazed at the sheer height of the falls and the force of the water falling from the top to the pool below - strong enough to soak you from far away when you are below and looking at the falls. The hike is pretty long and steep - about 4 total... More

A great scenic falls, but parking is an issue. The parking lot is very small, and the road in both directions does back up with those waiting to park. There is an alternate parking location on the other side of the road, but I am not sure how to get to it. The falls are great and very beautiful. The... More

Trip Advisor wants you to write at least 100 words but the pictures tell you everything you need to know. Absolutely beautiful with an easy walking trail.

It is only 1.8 miles up and 1.8 down but it is a steep steady hike. Beautiful views from the top (621 feet from the main deck to the top). Make sure you have water and protein bars. Watch out for the people with dogs, some spots are narrow-not a place for dogs and take your time.

We visited in mid April and the Falls were running pretty full. It is an awesome sight to see water falling so far straight down. We did walk up to the bridge over the water between the upper and lower falls and found the walk worthwhile. We also found that using the parking lot in the middle of I84 is... More

Its way too popular. Its way over photographed. Its way over advertised...that said, it really lives up to all the hype! BUT! 90%ish of tourists just walk up, take a few photos by the bridge, and turn back...don't! Put on your hiking boots or trail shoes, bring at least 500ml of water, and hike up to the top! Its moderately... More
