Due to the crowds and the parking problem, we left our car at the Wahkeenah Falls parking area and took the overland .06 mile trail to reach Multnomah Falls. We saw the trail-head sign and decided that it was the only way. The trail begins...More
My wife and I recently visited Multnomah Falls at the suggestion of an uber driver in Portland. We were glad we went. The falls are pretty spectacular and the area was pretty crowded for being there during the week in September. It is definitely worth...More
If you visit the Portland area, you simply MUST visit Multnomah Falls. We had it on our OPTIONAL to-see list, and I'm so glad we decided to visit it. Short drive from Portland, easy parking lot set up right in the middle of the highway,...More
Multnomah Falls is along Interstate that follows the Columbia River into Portland. There is a parking lot in the center of the interstate accessible from east or west bound traffic. Take the tunnel under the road and a short walk up to the falls viewing...More
This is a must-see if you are near Portland, Oregon. Terrific drive but take Old Historic Route 30 instead of 84 to enjoy the winding old country road. The bridge, the falls are unreal in their beauty. Take note that due to the fires some...More
We stayed at Troutdale on the east side of Portland and from there Multnomah falls is an easy 15 minute drive. The falls are pretty and have a nice bridge to view the falls about half way up, an easy walk. There is a visitors...More
When you drive down from Portland, the exit to the falls is on the left and the actual falls is on the right. There was a decent space for parking when we reached. Parking is free. From parking lot, there is a 2 minute walk...More
These beautiful waterfalls offer a glimpse of Oregon's natural splendor. The the steep paved switchback hike to the top leads to a view that's well worth it! Parking Tip: Parking can be tricky so come early or in the off season. The Multnomah Falls Car...More
So beautiful even from the parking lot. What a gorgeous place to be. You can hike a well paved short path up to the bridge and get an even closer view. Great pictures. After the falls take a minute and visit the gift shop. Cute...More

Hi, Yes, the falls are right off of the highway. There is a parking lot and then you walk under the highway to go to the falls. There is no gate or anything to block you. You can walk to an observation point close to the falls which is also next to the Multnomah Lodge. The falls are beautiful and worth seeing.
There was a terrible "Eagle Creek" fire in 2017. Much of the woods in this area burned and most trails are closed until later this year. The closures are for safety and also to allow time to repair them. I don't believe that you can go on the bridge (that is right in front of the falls) right now, but I could be wrong about this. I went a month ago (June) and the bridge was still closed. It closed because the trail that goes to the bridge was closed.
I would call Multnomah Lodge and ask them about the bridge.
Happy Travels, Michelle

Greetings Samantha, I completely agree with PatPatrick, wonderful suggestions were offered. An additional suggestion is to contact the park's facility manager to see if you can have access to the park 1 hour prior to opening (that way, if you want a bridal party and a few family members and close friends, everyone can easily move about the park). I think it would be better to have the ceremony by the lodge, as PatPatrick suggested, and then you can go up to the bridge (if you have on a light-weight wedding dress and flats) for the photo shots (it would be wonderful to have two photographers, one near the lodge and the other on the bridge, to take photos, they may also have the right equipment to get those "priceless" shots). As PatPatrick stated, it will be misty the whole time, depending on where you stand on the bridge. Congrats!
