We really enjoyed the hike up to the top for the wonderful view. It is sooooo worth the view. I suggest packing a light snack because it is a long hike. I also suggest wearing proper shoes. If time allows I would do some exploring of the back side of the falls which means taking a left vs a right... More

Love going and seeing the great Mulnomah Falls. During the summer it can get very busy and they will close the parkiing lot and bus you in from another nearby park with parking. Very pretty. Try the hike up to the very top. Can be a toughie though.

Multnomah Falls is beautiful any time of the year. I have seen it hang like a million icicles in a frozen state of suspended motion, a torrid and frightening flow as the falls seemed to burst at the seems with so much force, and a steady yet beautiful display of soft sprays and splashes as it descends the full 700...

Beautiful drive out to the Falls, and seeing them in the winter is so much different than in the summer as I had previously. Horsetail and Bridal Veil Falls were just as beautiful also!

Multnomah Falls is a must-see. Do not miss this. You do not need a tour guide. Just enjoy this beautiful place on your own. It is along the way of the Columbia River Gorge, but not via the major highway. The sight of the falls is magnificent and the sound is very peaceful. You can spend 30 minutes to 2... More

When you arrive at Multnomah Falls...firstly, you'll be amazed by the view. There are stairs somewhere to the right leading you to a trail that you can hike up and reach the top of the falls. If you're doing the hike up I don't think it'll be suitable for anyone under the age of 10 because there'll be two lanes... More

The 2-step falls really are a sight to behold. Trekking to the top will take some doing, but just a short trek around the bridge is rewarding in itself. Breathtaking views of the gently crashing water from multiple viewpoints make this a must visit!

If you are passing through Oregon on I-84. I recommend you stop by the falls. There is a rest stop by the interstate where you can park. You get a great view of the falls from the parking lot and the lower part of the trail. The hike up the trail is steep and may be a little slippery when... More

I did a long-weekend trip to Seattle and Portland and I decided to visit Multnomah falls. It was the best decision! We had our Uber driver take us from our hotel in Portland to Wahkeena Falls. Wahkeena Falls was also incredibly gorgeous and way less chaotic and busy than Multnomah. Also, at Wahkeena falls you can get more up close... More
