I wanted to see outside the city life of Portland Oregon. So me and some friends rented a car and drove to see the sites. This was one of them. It was majestic and beautiful. A must see.

We visited these falls in July and were so happy that the hike was fairly easy with a huge cascade of water at the end of the walk. Unfortunately these trails are closed at least until spring of 2018 due to wildfires. :-(

Multnomah Falls tops most people's list of falls to see when visiting the Columbia River Gorge, but I would argue that this one is even better! A 2 mile loop hike (1 mile each way) that is easy to moderate (more easy than moderate) with...More

We showed up early and the teeny lot was already full. We parked along the side of the road, so all was not lost. It was an easy-ish hike. And the payoff was amazing! The 1st falls was very pretty. But Wahclella falls were gorgeous....More

It's a bit more off the beaten track, but it has lovely scenery along the way...and then when you get to the waterfall at the end, it's stunning. I would describe it as an advanced beginner's hike. It does have quite a climb and it's...More
