A visit to Oregon is not complete without a stop at Multnomah Falls, Oregon's highest waterfall. It is incorrectly claimed to be the fourth highest in the US and second highest year-round waterfall in the US, but regardless of its rank, Multnomah is truly spectacular. It's right off the Historic Columbia River Highway and I-84 east of Portland, so very easy to visit, and there are touristy amenities available. There is ample parking, a lodge with a restaurant and restrooms, as well as numerous hiking trails to explore the region further. The falls consists of two drops - the upper drop is 542 feet and the lower drop is 69 feet. In between the two is the Benson Bridge that allows a closer view and continues the trail for those wanting to hike to the top. The photography opportunities here are fantastic, but remember a wide-angle lens to capture the entire waterfall. The only downside is that the area is extremely crowded due its ease of access and proximity to Portland. The hiking trails, however, do offer the opportunity to escape the crowds. But crowded or not, this is definitely an attraction that's not to be missed!
