We cannot take a trip to the Pacific Northwest without visiting one of our favorite places - Multonmah Falls. Maybe it is a favorite because it breaks up the long 8 hour car ride from Idaho back to Washington. Or maybe it is one of our favorites because it is a fairly easy hike with the reward of water at the end. Whatever the reasons, this is one spot that you will not want to miss if you are traveling out West. There can be a lot of people visiting with you (who doesn't want to see one of the biggest waterfalls in the United States). If you appreciate beauty and "awsomeness" (I just made that word up, I think) then you will love this place regardless of all those visiting with you.
Just over a mile, fairly steep, hike brings you to some of the most spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge and some fiercely falling water. We cannot resist stopping here every time we visit the West Coast. This year, we had wonderful friends hiking with us...making memories that we will share for years to come.
