Take in the view from the top of Multnomah Falls

It’s worth the sweat to get there

Climb to the top of Oregon’s tallest waterfull? Check.

For most Portlanders, staring up in wonder at Multnomah Falls is a familiar experience, but have you ever wondered what that 620-ft drop looks like from the top? Well, hiking 2.4 miles round trip + 870 ft of elevation will get you there.

On average, 150 cubic feet of water flows over the ledge every second — that’s like pouring 934 gallons of milk out at the same time. The more it’s roaring, the better, as ample precipitation is needed to help our wildlands recover from forest fires.
