Climb To The Top Of Multnomah Falls!


Come climb to the top of Multnomah Falls! This relatively easy hike is the crown jewel along the Columbia River Historic Highway, and its beauty is breathtaking. Whether you want to hike to just the historic Benson Bridge or want to walk the 2.6-mile trail as it switchbacks to the top, this is an easy way to spend a beautiful day in the Columbia River Gorge.

History 
Lumber baron and philanthropist Simon Benson donated the land that the falls sit upon and funded the construction of the iconic Benson Bridge in front of Multnomah Falls, the tallest waterfall in Oregon and the Columbia Gorge's most recognizable natural landmark. Benson's generosity later helped citizens work with timber companies in the 1940s and 1950s to secure protection of some of the Gorge's most iconic waterfalls.
