If we had to choose, the state of Oregon in the northwestern United States just might be the most beautiful in the entire country. Its endless beauty reflects a massive diversity of nature that stretches from its eastern desert plains to the verdant Pacific coast on its west side.
Now, choosing one favorite spot in Oregon is pretty difficult, but it might just be Multnomah Falls for me.
Scenically located in the Columbia River Gorge in northwest Oregon, just south of the border with Washington, visitors can see one of the United States’ most stunning waterfalls up close and personal in an accessible location.
This two-tiered waterfall has a total height of 620 feet, with a scenic and picturesque footbridge traversing Multnomah Creek between the two tiers. Only a short walk from a parking area, it’s possible to see and reflect on the wonder of this natural marvel from here.
However, those who are in shape and looking to do a little climb can also make the hike to the top of the falls! Two miles of steep switchback climb separate you from reaching the top of the falls and seeing a new perspective of the landmark as well as a panoramic view of the Columbia River Gorge.
In short, Multnomah Falls is an absolute must for any visitor to Oregon. It is truly a sight that must be seen to be believed.
