Morning Half-Day Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls Tour from Portland
The tour and guide were great, the four stars were more because it rained that day and Vista house was closed due to Covid. Kind of hard to take pics from the van when it’s fogged up from the weather. But, the waterfalls were beautiful, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave entertaining stories about the things we were seeing. But, good thing my iPhone was waterproof!

Mt Hood Day Trip from Portland to Multnomah Falls and Hood River
I was booked for a private tour. That means it was just my party in the van. Gunner was really knowledgeable and very patient. He even helped me recover my cell phone which was left at our very first stop. The weather was typical of Portland in October- a mix of rain, wind and chill. The rain just made the fall colors POP. We stopped at Trillium Lake (it was still open) and a hiked to at least 2 waterfalls and saw an untold number along the way. It was a beautiful day.

E-Bike Rental and Self Guided Tour of Multnomah Falls and the Columbia Gorge
We toured all the waterfalls for three hours with Taylor. He was extremely knowledgeable, very good company and a fabulous photographer! We have perfect pics by each waterfall thxs to Taylor. The ebikes were the mountain style tires so felt even more safe then our previous ebike trips. Highly recommend.

Morning Half-Day Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls Tour from Portland
From the hotel pick up until the hotel drop off the experience was great. Jarred made sure that we were comfortable and he had knowledge about each tour. Although it rained it stop my family and I from enjoying the views of the scenery. Jarred was amazing and I would recommend him and this tour.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Parts of the path that lead to the lower waterfall are wheelchair accessible; there is an elevator to the restaurant.

  • A US Forest Service information center is open seven days a week.

  • The Multnomah Falls Lodge at the base of the falls hosts a restaurant, snack bar, gift shop, and restrooms. Pick up hiking trail maps here.

  • Make sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a layer, whether you plan to hike or not; spray and mist can make surfaces slippery and cooler than nearby areas.

  • Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash.

How to Get There

Located along the Historic Columbia River Highway, just across the Columbia River from Washington state, and 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of Portland, the falls are a heavily visited attraction. If driving from Portland, head east on Interstate 84 and take exit 31 to the parking lot (which fills up often). For a more scenic route, take exit 28 and drive the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Highway. To avoid traffic and navigation issues, take a guided bus tour from Portland.

Other Waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area

While Multnomah Falls is definitely the grand dame, it’s not the only waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area or along the Historic Columbia River Highway. On the drive between Portland and the gorge, stop off at Wahkeena Falls, Latourell Falls, Horsetail Falls, or Bridal Veil Falls for more opportunities to take in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Select day tours to Multnomah Falls also stop at additional waterfalls on the route.
