This is one of those places in the world where you see something so wonderful, raw, beautiful, and powerful it makes you believe in the existence of a higher being. This is one of the most beautiful and inspirational sites. The entire trail of falls is worth driving through. Depending on what time of the year you visit, you should expect rain, and cold. Our visit was during the first week of May and it was in the 30s and rainy. Totally worth the drive and visit.

This is an obvious stop if you are driving along the Columbia River, and it's absolutely worth it.

We walked up to the bridge and then a little further, but not right to the top. The views over the river are very nice too.

A lovely waterfall.

A must see if you're in the area. Very beautiful. Great photo opportunity. Also check out the other waterfalls along this highway. It's called "waterfall alley". Many beautiful falls to see. Some require a bit of a walk to get to but it's well worth it.

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!

We parked in the lot at the base of Multnomah Falls (and lodge) and took the trail to the base of Wakeena Falls and then up and around to the top of Multnomah Falls (approx 4 miles). This is one of the best day hikes I've ever been on. Unfortunately, the Benson Bridge near the base of Multnomah Falls is currently closed due to damage from a falling rock. We hiked two miles east and down to the road (highway 30) and then back on the road for a roughly 4-mile detour. It was definitely worth it.
