Located in the stunning Columbia River Gorge, the falls can be over 500 feet at its longest drop, and 620 feet from top to bottom.
Part of what makes visiting Multnomah Falls such a vivid and memorable experience is that there is a long, easily accessible footbridge that allows visitors not only a marvelous view, but also allows for some impressive photo taking opportunities.
