My husband and I visited Multnomah Falls on a return trip to Portland as part of a trip down the West Coast. It's a breathtaking waterfall and I definitely consider it a must-see if you're in the area! The waterfall itself is everything you see in photos and more. It's worth seeing from the bottom, the bridge, and the top, if you're up for the hike. The hike itself is somewhat challenging as it is a mile hike up (800+ feet on a stead incline) and the same hike down, with lots of switchbacks and some slippery mud to navigate as you get close to the falls. The views are absolutely worth it along the trail and seeing the top of the falls from the viewing platform. It was free to visit, though I have heard there are some timed-tickets to deal with in the age of COVID and possibly some trail closures. Check their website for up-to-date information. When we went, parking had a pretty long wait. We were in a 30-minute+ queue to get a space. After that, it was relatively easy. There are a lot of people on the bridge and at the bottom, but people were respectful and spaced out enough that you could take pictures without being in a crowd. People were also spaced out and respectful of other hikers on the trail. Definitely make time for this if you are in the area!

We visited on Saturday 9/12 during Oregon's wildfires. Fortunately we could still see the falls but the air was smoky and hazy. There were still quite a number of people there, more than I would expect. Parking is free and it is off a left exit on I-84 Highway. If you are using Google Maps, map to the Multnomah Falls Parking. If you just map to the Falls, Google Maps might take you directly in front of the falls where there is only Employee Parking and you will need to detour for 10 minutes just to get back on I-84. The falls had recently reopened due to COVID and you can also pay to make a reservation for timed entry but because we were visiting when there were hardly any visitors due to wildfires, there was really no need. From the parking, it is a short walk to the bottom of the falls where you can take a photo of the falls and the iconic bridge. Entry is free.

We visited the falls on Labor Day. A ticket needed to be purchased before getting to the falls. We found this out via signs on the highway. Luckily you can purchase it online. Due to COVID the ticket gives you a timeframe you can enter the park. The ticket doesn’t guarantee parking. We were lucky as parking wasn’t an issue. There is a short easy walk to the fall viewing area. Trails that go to the top of the falls are closed. After viewing the falls of course we wanted to visit the gift shop. Here there was a line to get in. The staff ensured safety by only allowing a few in at a time and hand sanitizer was readily available. It was just too bad that not all of the visitors had the same attitude

We visited Sunday morning and got there before there were crazy amounts of people. It is free, and there is only a very short walk, as the main trail is closed due to COVID. Still very pretty. The gift shop was nice. The only restrooms available when we visited were the porta-potties, unfortunately.

Very pretty and easy to get to. After reading reviews I was afraid we would have to wait in a long line to get in. We went on a Sunday just before noon and there were a lot of people but not excessively so. We were able to walk in, get our pictures and mostly maintain social distancing. We got delicious marionberry and hazelnut shakes which were all served as contactless as possible. The gift shop was also set up for social distancing. Bathrooms are closed but there are port-o-potties.
