Easy hike to the falls. Beautiful and powerful falls. Fun hike and creek along the hike.

on Triple Falls Trail

DO THIS HIKE YOU WON'T REGRET IT! It has beautiful waterfalls and everything is so green and wonderful. It was a little slippery on some of the rocks/paths but not too terrible. There are a lot of people at the bottom where Multnomah Falls is but once you get up past the switchbacks the trails weren't too crowded. Definitely a must-do hike if visiting Portland. The Columbia Gorge Shuttle service from Gateway station was $5/person and was super easy to figure out! Overall a great day.

Decided to start at Bridge of the Gods just to log a few extra miles. That's probably the only reason to add this segment because the hike is not too attractive as you're pretty much walking under power lines, through black berries, and along HWY14...

Anyway - the hike to Table Mountain is pretty much as others have described - steep last mile or so and take lots of water!! Went up the hard (Heartbreak Ridge) and down the 'not-as-hard'. I'd say they are both steep and footing is challenging at times on both trails.

Passed some dudes near the top wearing tennis shoes, made my feet and toes hurt just looking at them - please pack and outfit yourself properly and be safe.

As for the view once on top? Amazing, and had it all to myself.

One of our favorites:)

Beautiful trail, very rocky around the washed out area, but goes fast. It was a hot day when we went so getting to the falls was quite welcome to cool off for awhile before heading back down. The trail connects to Multnomah falls.

Beautiful waterfall, the trail is washed out in one area - pros, keeps some of the people out; cons, difficult for my wife to walk through.

This hike was great! Fairly easy trail, not too much uphill. Dog friendly. Not crowded. Beautiful waterfall!!
