These falls are better than any words I could use to describe them, or any pictures I took. This was my second visit. I really wanted my friend to see them, too. They are just so beautiful and so unusual. Highly recommended

Just a couple of hundred yards from parking to the base of the falls make this ideal fir smaller children. The falls are amazing - we could have stayed for an hour listening to and feeling the pounding. It is truly grand and dramatic. Be...More

So beautiful, but my pics are not that good. We got there just before noon and the sun wrecked all my pics. It was also really crowded at that time. Next time we'll go to the falls early in the day or wait until dusk....More

We were warned this would be packed. It was. We made a point to get there before 10. Even then there were many people, but it was manageable. We drove by again around 2 and it was wall-to-wall with traffic in front barely moving at...More

Multnomah Falls is one of those places you see in photographs and think 'I must visit there', well in September 2016 we finally made it. The parking is free and there is no admission fee to enjoy the falls so parking can be a challenge...More

Multnomah Falls is beautiful. You can actually see the falls from the parking area. But to get a better view, you should take the mile-long hike to the lookout. It can be slippery and is a little steep in places, but well worth the hike.

First thing's first- get there early in the morning. The lots and even the exit will fill up quickly. We arrived around 9:30 and parking was steadily becoming scarce. If you do secure a parking spot, you will walk across the street and see the...More

This beautiful waterfall is just 30-40 minutes East of Portland and along with other waterfalls and viewpoints along the Columbia River makes a great day trip from Portland. The waterfalls are close enough to the scenic highway that there is only limited walking involved from...More

Hoping I'll get some answers before we visit the falls tomorrow. We'll be traveling from Portland and we'll have our 18-mo old with us. Is it best to take the stroller or carry her? I'm assuming based on what I'm reading that we'll likely only make it to the first stop b/c from there it's steep... is that accurate? Also where is the best place to park considering we'll have a toddler?

We did see a few strollers on our way to the falls. You can manage with the stroller. There are a couple of one-step up areas that you would need to pick it up, but that's all. We just went to the bridge which is amazing... More
Can you recommend some good hikes at or around Multnomah Falls (4-5 miles) and other worthwhile waterfalls to visit? We have a rental car for one day. Thank you! :)
