-HIKE: There are so many beautiful hiking trails around Portland. A few of our favorites that also have picture worthy waterfalls are:
MULTNOMAH FALLS: Multnomah Falls is a magnificent waterfall only 30 mins outside of Portland. The hike to the top is only about 2.2 miles making it about a 4.5 mile hike roundtrip.
