Beautiful hike. Going to the very top is quite a workout there are tons of little back trails and little waterfalls though

this was a terrific hike. the view of the falls is amazing. 700ft elevation gain in about 1.2mi. steep at times and always crowded. when you reach switchback #9 you go down hill for 3 more. the water at the top is refreshing and a great place to rest. the views on the way up are obscured by trees but you can still find a few great spots to view the river and gorge. bring lots of water in the summer and plan on extra time to get a parking space. there is a gift shop, exhibit, food counter and smoothie booth at the bottom. it is an easy walk to the view point of the falls and .2mi to the bridge, which is the best view. it is another mile to the top of the falls!

One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen!! There are several other falls in the area as well. This place can be very crowded, and congested at times.

Hiked the trail 2 weeks ago. The first part from the base to the top of the Multnomah Falls a little tougher but the rest is easy. It was my first time completing the loop down to Wahkena Falls. The trail above the Multnomah falls is a hidden jewel, extraordinary with several waterfalls dropping into pools surrounded by volcanic rocks and lush vegetation. Bugs not much of a problem. Watch for poison oak once you're down to Wahkena falls after you pass the stone retention walls.

Beautiful waterfall, but the number of people there is off-putting. There weren't as many people on the hike to the top of the falls, but I don't think I will be doing this one again.

Extremely crowded but thins out as you attempt the top. Still too many people for my taste. Then you got a bunch of people chomping on nachos and cinnamon rolls and crap and a bunch of kids whining about the climb. Beautiful waterfall but tainted by human traffic.

The first 8 of 11 switchbacks will never be rated easy. If you have more time, I definitely recommend starting 1/2 mile down the road at Wahkeena Falls & making the loop to Multnomah past multiple falls, plus a wonderful start along Wahkeena Creek.

The lower areas are very crowded, but higher up the traffic thins out.

Exactly what I expected from a paved trail that has a restaurant and ice cream parlor at the beginning.
