More than two million people visit Multnomah Falls every year. In fact, it’s the most-visited natural recreation site in the entire Pacific Northwest, and it’s easy to see why. The 620-foot waterfall is not only the tallest in the state; it’s also one of Oregon’s most spectacular waterfalls.
While most folks ooh and awe over the waterfall, pretty much every photo of it includes an iconic, man-made feature: Benson Bridge. It rarely gets a mention, but it was an incredible feat of engineering, and we can’t imagine Multnomah Falls without it.
