Afternoon Half-Day Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls Tour from Portland
My son and I did the tour on July 25th with Adam "Thorn" Smith. The tour was great. Thorn made the tour so entertaining. We also learned so much about the history of Portland and Oregon. The waterfalls were wonderful. I would recommend Thorn for any tours that he gives.

Multnomah Falls Waterfall E-bike Tour See Seven Waterfalls and the Vista House
The Ebikes were a lot of fun. You ride to rack of the falls and can the take a short walk or longer walk to see them. The Ebike staff gave great instructions on how to use the bikes. If doing it again, I would go for the full day and do more of the trails.

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.
