Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge
Multnomah Falls is the most visited recreation site in the Pacific Northwest with 2 million stopping each year to take in the views. As a local innkeeper I suggest visiting the falls on either ends of the day and midweek to beat the crowds. I also suggest taking the time to hike the 6 miles Wahkeena – Multnomah Falls loop so as to ‘discover’ 6 more waterfalls, if you indeed love to chase waterfalls.
Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies, usually its highest during winter and spring. Multnomah Falls offers one of the best places in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to study geology exposed by floods. Five flows of Yakima basalt are visible in the falls’ cliff face.
The earthcache ‘Multnomah Falls’, GC98X65, studies the different types of exposed basalt layers.
