We accidentally passed by this falls on the way to Multnomah. It is beautiful and just right by the road, no hiking required. The path was icy though in December but is not an issue since you don't really have to hike to get close. You can view it from the parking area as well. Well worth a stop.

We were surprised by the complexity of our walk to the Falls, and it was not always entirely safe - lots of snow on the ground, some reasonable slopes to navigate, etc But it was well worth it - if you can handle the difficulty, it was an amazing experience esp for we Aussies who don't see a lot of...

The waterfall was amazing! We went in January right after a snowstorm so everything was frozen but you could walk around and take pictures. The whole area near the Gorge is awesome. The trails were pretty covered and icy so we couldn't explore further but we hope to go back in Spring. Beautiful place!

More fun than Bridal Veil...not so many people. Be sure to read all the signage so you can enjoy the history of the area.

The best part about the Columbia River Gorge is that most of the waterfalls are right on the side of the road. You just pull over, park and then go look and take photos. I did small hike up a the hill side after checking out Horsetail Falls, which was great, to get to Ponytail Falls, which was nice but... More

We stumbled up on these beautiful falls and scenery when we saw that Multnomah Falls was packed. These falls were right up the drive from Multnomah - maybe a 5-10 minute drive at most. They're not as crowded, and it's super peaceful to just sit there and listen to the falls. I woudl definitely recommend checking these falls out -... More

Stopped to see the numerous falls along the scenic route to the gorge. Parking is at a premium on this narrow road. There are a few lots but seem to be always full.

these were my husband's favorite not only because of how easily accessible it was, but how close you could get to the little pond. You could sit here and enjoy the beauty and quiet just steps from the road. we didn't hike to the upper falls, but even so, well worth it.

if you go to see multnomah falls but make the mistake of only taking the easy i84 route and never drive the old highway 30 east past the tourist site, then... don't do that. for one of the easiest and most dramatic pictures make sure to go on a few miles and catch the drama of one of the most...
