A wonderful spot to visit in Oregon has to be Multnomah Falls. It is honestly one of the most magnificent waterfalls that we have had the pleasure to see and if you have followed It’s Just Life for any length of time you know that we love to visit waterfalls.
Any waterfall is attractive to me but Multnomah Falls which is around 30 minutes from Portland is one that will stay in my memory for a long time. It was a very rainy, foggy and cold day when we visited but that didn’t mar its beauty in any way.
The waterfall is located off of I – 84 off of exit 31. There is a large parking area and once parked the viewing area for the falls is a quick 5 minute walk. There is plenty of parking and even on the rainy day that we were there the lot was 90% filled so it is a really popular spot.
The falls are spectacular with a 611 foot drop of roaring cascades. The sound is deafening at times and with the rain falling during our visit the falls were showing off. Beautifully stunning.
The Native American history of the falls shares that the falls were created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. Whatever the history I know that they are beautiful and that the area around is stunning in every way.
Located at the bottom of the falls is the Multnomah Falls Lodge which was built in 1925 houses a gift shop, restaurant as well as the U.S. Forest Service Information Service where trail maps and other information can be obtained. This is definitely worth a stop. Restrooms are also available.
Multmonah Falls is fed by and underground spring as well as melting snow so a visit anytime during the year will result is some spectacular viewing.
The landscape surrounding the area is lush and green and it really was glistening during our visit. Don’t you feel like you are right there?
