Please Plan and Prepare Before Visiting the Gorge
Increased visitation puts increased pressure on the Gorge’s limited resources. If you’re planning a trip to our region, please help keep our communities safe by following CDC and local health guidelines and respecting the requests of individual businesses. Always have a Plan B and a Plan C in case your destination is too crowded or closed. When recreating on trails, bring a face covering and maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other hikers and bikers.
Reservations now required at Multnomah Falls
In order to improve safety and congestion, all visitors to Multnomah Falls (including children under 2 years) now require a reservation. Reserve your tickets at rec.gov. Note: There is a $1 admin fee for each ticket. Your ticket reservation does not guarantee you a parking space but if you arrive by transit, you do not need to make a reservation: simply show you ticket from the Columbia Gorge Express, your Gorge Pass, or receipt from the hop on/hop off services along the Historic Highway (Sasquatch Shuttle or Water Fall Trolley). Click here for more information about the details of the new reservation system.

After visiting the Gorge, we invite you to consider making a Pledge of $1/hour for the time you spend mountain biking, hiking to epic peaks or wildflower meadows, fishing pristine rivers and waterways, or any of the other epic adventures you’ve just had. It’s easy. Just text the phrase WILD4GORGE to 44321. Make a donation and know you are helping to protect the outdoor resources you just played in so others can continue to enjoy them in the future.
