Beautiful waterfall in a nice part of this country. Surrounding area also has many other falls and hiking trails. Unfornate that road around falls was closed because of a fire.

One of the beautiful places on earth equal to Yosemite in California is the Columbia Gorge. On the Oregon side of the Columbia River only 45 minutes east of Portland is the crown jewel of the Columbia Gorge, Multnomah Falls. It is breathtaking and an...More

I didn't get to stay very long, but I got some great pics in the 15-20 minutes I was able to stay. I'd love to come back with a packed lunch and wander the trails for a few hours.

Waterfall as such looks normal, but the bridge in between 2 tiers adds the beauty. I definitely recommend this place. parking lot is accessible to freeway and a small walk from there. And its free parking. Needs a small hike to go the bridge

Had a wonderful experience of Multnomah Falls in December’2018. Though it was raining and bone chilling cold... the view of mesmerizing falls is unforgettable! Worth the visit

Perhaps it was the overhype of everyone recommending the falls. Perhaps it was the prior year's Eagle Creek Fire that's closed off the upper part of the trails. But is it weird that despite it's natural beauty, I found the spot to be a bit...More

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... More

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... More

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...More

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?
