During our Pacific Northwest vacation, we stayed in Troutdale, Oregon. While there my wife and I went on two hikes. This hike started at the Multnomah Falls, and what awesome falls they are. I have uploaded a photo with this review. My wifes's FitBit registered 160 flights and over 20000 steps on this day. The lower portion of the falls... More

If you are in the area then you must visit these falls. They are simply breath taking. They are over 600 feet tall and the trail leads to the top (if you want to make the climb) The walk to the bridge is short but a fairly steep incline. At the bottom there is a snack shop on one side,... More

We went in July 2016 and there was not much water flow in the falls. But the trail was very good. There is a small water creek from the water fall which can be reached when you walk across the falls towards the parking lot.. The creek is very good place for kids to play and they can enjoy watching... More

If you are in Portland you have to go and see this work of art from nature. You can walk all the way up to the top, it is a little bit exhausting but worth it.

This is a really great fall but very crowded by 10 am. You would be best served by early in the morning or later in the evening.

We visited the area on a holiday weekend so the traffic and crowds were beyond crazy. The falls are beautiful. The hiking is fun. The crowds were a little crazy but we survived and got some good exercise and great pictures. Be sure to hike up into the hills to check out the Oneonta Gorge area.

After you got passed the line and the parking situation it was pretty cool to see. But it was really busy. There was a lot of people there. We were on vacation, but if we go back I will definitely go back and take the walk to the overlook bridge.

This was a very beautiful waterfall. You must walk atleast up to the bridge to get a better view. Super easy walk up. We hiked up even farther and was also not bad. Path was very good.

We went on the "slowest" day (Monday) and since we wanted to stop at Vista House first (they opened at 9) we didn't get to Multnomah until around 11 a.m.. BIG MISTAKE. It was mobbled with selfie-obsessed people who were so busy taking (and then admiring or posting) pictures of themselves that they'd walk right into us as we tried... More

If you are staying in the Portland area you should be sure and visit. We saw a sign that told us to take a shuttle from a state park and this was good advice. There was limited to no parking at the actual falls and the shuttle was free. As an added bonus, with the shuttle you can look around... More
