Multnomah Falls – Columbia Gorge, Oregon

Multnomah Falls is located on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge east of Troutdale. They can be reached by vehicle on the Historic Columbia River Highway. The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet and a lower falls of 69 feet, with a gradual 9 foot (3 m) drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet. This makes Multnomah Falls the tallest waterfall in the State of  Oregon and the fourth tallest in the United States. A foot trail leads to Benson Footbridge then steepens and leads to the top of the falls.
