So beautiful! Very touristy, but I can see why because it is an amazing fall.

Should really be an easy trail, people were doing this with strollers when I was there. That said, the view from the top was a little less than I was expecting. The view from the bottom and the bridge in the middle, WOW!

Beautiful but very touristy.

An incredible way to get your heart and adrenaline pumping!! Push through your fear, it is so worth it!

I did the full loop on 2/10. Needed ice axe and crampons. It was a truly a mountaineering effort to complete and not die on the trail. They had closed the gate on the Multnomah Falls side and rightfully so because it was extremely dangerous.

Check out some of the photos I posted, it was snow and ice travel all the way.

This is a phenomenal loop. There are so many damage, fallen trees, and erosions from the winter storm and will take some time to clean up after the trail thaws.

Climbed this hill during the winter four times. As of 2/23 the top half of the mountain is still covered with snow and ice. Traction device and ice axe still required to reduce the risk.

Beautiful morning. The best time to do this hike is 7am...on a Tuesday.... In the rain. . Didn't see a single soul. The trail was covered in so much ice and snow that I'm glad I had crampons or I never would have made it to the falls.

some spring break

Pretty easy hike. Snow made it a bit more difficult. Great waterfall.

The east first few miles are more scenic. Lots of snow in between trailheads during winter means you're better off with snow shoes although is still hikable, my shoes did get water in them. The tunnel is great and worth seeing, so I recommend starting on the eastern side. Pretty flat the whole way. Follows a highway so you always hear traffic.
