This fall is a 611 foot drop located 30 minutes east of Portland. With a restaurant, Lodge, and visitors center it's a great place for travels and adventure seekers. It is an easy stroll to the bridge that overlooks the lower fall and gives a great view of the dramatic upper fall. Then, if you are feeling more adventurous you can accomplish the 2.6 mile round trip hike to the top of the falls. This is a crowded trail during the tourist months, and closed during winter due to ice. There are plenty of rest spots on the way and beautiful views of the Columbia and of course the falls themselves!
