Columbia River


Columbia River Valley

The Columbia River and its tributaries form the dominant water system in the Pacific Northwest Region. The valley's Oregon side is a hundreds miles long park that is the number one tourist destination in Oregon.



Multnomah Falls

Falling 620 feet from the top of Larch Mountain, Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States.

Two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall making it Oregon's number one public destination. The falls are fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain.

Multnomah Falls is a place of great beauty as well as 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 fall's cliff face.
