This magnificent waterfall is 186 meters, the next-to-highest waterfall in America. The Multnomah Falls is formed by ice water that gushes from the surrounding mountains. From the parking area you reach within five minutes the vantage point at the foot of the waterfall. For a better picture walk about 500 meters to Benson Bridge, where you can see the bottom of the waterfall (165 meters). The bridge starts a steep path of 1.5 kilometers to the top of the waterfall. From Multnomah Falls Overlook you have a magnificent view of the Columbia River Gorge.
