We visited Multnomah Falls this last weekend for probably the 10th time. We haven't kept track. Just about anyone can do the short, uphill hike to Benson Bridge for breathtaking sights of the falls and the Columbia River below. For the hardier, a longer uphill hike to the waterfall overlook. You can go further but we didn't. We are relatively local but still see this area as a very special place for all visitors. Every time we go to the falls, we see people from all over the world taking in the sights. In springtime, all of the leaves have come out on the deciduous trees and the small wildflowers are blooming. The green colors of the moss and the leaves of the perennials are almost florescent. As you climb up to the overlook, you can smell the wild roses. If you have vertigo, you may want to stick to the lower level Benson Bridge as there are many spots on the trail where there is limited width above a very shear cliff. If you are going on the weekend, get to the parking lot before 9am. We got there at 10 am and found parking easily but it gets crowded on the trails by 11am and by noon, forget about finding parking. You'll want to come early to do several of the falls along the old Columbia River Highway.
