After a long battle with my family, I finally got them to agree to take a drive up to Multnomah Falls. After breakfast, we got a late morning start out I-84 east along with a lot of traffic we didn't expect. Once we got off the main highway in Troutdale and onto the Scenic Columbia River Highway, which is just... More

This was a great part of our hike! The jog jam was challenging, and frustrating at times when people wouldn't take turns, but once you're past that, it's great. The water was very cold, but worth the trek!

This hiking is amazing, be ready to get wet. It's not an easy walk, you have to climbs logs, but you will enjoy it. We went on Sunday and it was packed

This along the Ponytail falls hike is our favorite in the area. Really different adventure. It's funny to spot people that you can tell was not ready for this place or didn't know what to expect. As many others mentioned, water shoes or shoes that you don't mind getting soaked is a must. Bring towel and extra clothes to leave... More

Really beautiful hike down the river. Wear true water shoes if you have them, that will give you traction on the river rocks, and logs you have to climb over (Astral's were perfect). One area is about chest deep. Go very very early or there will be back up of people trying to scramble over logs. You should be in... More

I'd been here before but I brought my neice this time. I was worried about her making it over all of the fallen logs. She did great. It was very crowded while getting over the logs but people were good about taking turns. The water wasn't as cold as I remember from last time. However, it was freezing when you... More

Kind of hard to get to. Plan on walking through chest high water to reach the falls. And that's after climbing through a logjam.

Not a super long hike but it has some really cool obstacles including a scramble over rocks/logs and wading through chest high water which make this a really enjoyable hike. Combine the fun obstacles with the amazing surroundings of the Gorge walls and a waterfall at the end and this was my favorite hike we did in Oregon. I would... More

We tried to do this hike once before and couldn't find parking so we knew we needed to be earlier. We also decided to wear swimsuits and have our warm change of clothes ready and waiting in the car. Good idea! We arrived just before 9:00 am and it was perfect timing. Easily found parking and walked toward the tunnel... More
