A quick 30 minute drive from Portland, Multnomah Falls is one gorgeous waterfall! Unfortunately the day we had planned for this activity it was pouring rain, but that didn't stop everyone was donning raincoats and enjoying the view! Parking was cramped, but not impossible to find, so we did have to walk a little way from the car to the... More

Easy to get to about 30minutes outside of Portland on I-84 with a beautiful view of a waterfall. If you want a long tough hike, you can get beautiful views of the gorge.

Just 30 minutes east of Portland you will find Multnomah falls. Plan your visit in the winter and you will see them at their peak. With all of the rain fall in the area, these fall are gushing with water. Easy to navigate parking lot with a short walk under the highway is the start. You can follow the signs... More

Most people don't hike the quick mile or so to the top of the falls. So worth the view at the top. Nice trail, places to stop and rest if you need to.

If you rented a car in Portland, it is an incredibly easy drive to see these magnificent falls. The drive is beautiful and the parking was cramped yet available. The falls are accessible for everyone. There are different levels of access (easy, medium, and challenging) depending on your view point. There is a lovely brunch spot located at the base... More

Beautiful view with many tourists capturing photos at this attraction. Can be crowded and time wait for that perfect picture with the falls. But worth it.

Came here at the end of December and was surprised how crowded it was. I can't imagine what the visit here would be like in the summer. This attraction is popular for a reason. The falls is beautiful and easily accessible. Though if you visit in winter I recommend a sturdy hiking shoes with good grips or better yet use... More

We visited the Multnomah Falls on a very rainy day, which was great because the crowds were smaller and when you're hiking in the woods you don't even notice the rain. They have a main gift shop, which isn't worth much, a snack place selling over expensive food and water, and a bathroom that was crowded with high school kids... More

Fantastic views, easily accessible and not too much effort required. the Bridge was out when we were there but has since been repaired and re-opened. this allows access from the roadside to the top of the falls. there is a beautiful little walk along the bottom of the falls and this leads to a couple of smaller falls. scenic and...

It was 21 years ago that I took my then girlfriend to see the falls. We had lunch at the lodge, then climbed the path to the top. I was so so close to asking her to marry me right there but chined out. The next day I popped the question and she said "I thought you were going to... More
