We were really hoping to see Multnomah falls however it was absolutely impossible to find any parking there. We saw the falls partially from the road and the location is beautiful. Dont recommend driving here if you can take a shuttle or find another way, otherwise you might not get to see them :(

The falls are just beautiful, from the time one walks up to the information center, across the foot bridge and all along the trail to the top. I highly recommend making the trek to the top. The hike is not too strenuous, but enough so that there's not much of a crowd once you get to the stream at the... More

A photograher's delight. Easy access to a number of excellent viewing areas. I don't know how the falls vary with the seasons but we visited in May and the amount of water falling was just perfect.

I wanted to write a review for the entire Columbia Gorge and Mt. Hood loop as my husband and I really enjoyed a great day of sightseeing! But there were too many places to mention so I thought I would focus on Multnomah Falls which is along the loop. The water fall was beautiful and we also ate lunch there... More

This is a beautiful waterfall nestled in the Columbia River Gorge near Troutdale, Oregon. There is a half mile hike that takes you to the top. We went about half way. There are many beautiful trees and interesting fauna that we don't see in Colorado. That was fun looking at the beautiful forest that is so different from ours. There... More

Awesome stop along the Scenic Route 30. Be sure to take the .2 mile path to the bridge between the two levels of falls (or the one mile path to the top of the falls.). We went on a late Wednesday afternoon, so there were lots of open parking spots and not much traffic on the highway.

This is a very popular attraction, dozens of tour buses. Limited parking for the size of the area. Prepare for a very long walk. We were there late morning in early July, and wish we'd been there earlier, you can probably avoid a lot of the crowd. It was almost impossible to get a picture because of the sheer number... More

We have wanted to visit for years and weren't disapponted. We were there on a weekend and made sure we got there early so we got a parking spot and not too crowded at the falls. As we walked to the falls and got our first glimpse, we just stood in awe. It is just Beautiful. We walked up to... More

I have passed this falls many times but never stopped and went to the top. It is a beautiful falls and very busy. Has a nice gift shop and there is food and restrooms. I was alone so didn't get a picture taken with the falls behind me and it was crowded so I didn't ask anyone. I really enjoyed... More

Gorgeous waterfall and park about 30 minutes east of Portland. Well worth the trip to see it, as the two drops combine to be more than 600 feet high. A short path takes you to a bridge below the first, larger drop. A popular stop for tourists, we encountered an almost-full car lot and a couple of tour buses, so... More
