“Great waterfall right off the road”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Other waterfalls, like Multnomah, get more attention, but this is still a great stop.

From the parking area it is just steps away to the base of this 176 foot tall waterfall. It also the only one we visited where it is easy to get down to the water area and actually wade in. Lots of shady spots to rest and have a snack before doing the rest of the Columbia River Gorge.

“Very picturesqe waterfall.”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

When you enter this are of the Columbia River Gorge this is the 1st waterfall you encounter. I actually preferred this one over Multnomah simply because there was only a handful of people here so it was more serene. Lovely waterfall to get a few nice shots of.

“Nice”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Nice, but actually not my favorite waterfall in Gorge. It's nice for folks who don't want to or can't walk very far.
