Multnomah Falls is arguably `the grandaddy` of the 77 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. At 620 feet, only three falls in the nation are higher, and none are more beautiful. It attracts large crowds on summer weekends, so plan accordingly. A trail from famous Multnomah Falls Lodge (1925) climbs to the Simon Benson Bridge across the lower cascade, then zigzags to the top.
Fall folliage alert: Autumn’s fiery colors provide a stunning backdrop for Multnomah Falls. To get the full spectrum, you can hike to the top of the falls. It’s 1.2 miles and gains about 600 feet in elevation. Once you’re at the top of the falls, you can take the six-mile Wahkeena Loop Trail, or continue on to the top of Larch Mountain to extend your colorful hike.
