Are there many waterfalls near Portland, Oregon?

Absolutely — if you’re into waterfall chasing, Portland is positively teeming with incredible cascades. Located just 30 minutes from the Columbia River Gorge, Rose City is within striking distance of some of the most extraordinary waterfalls in the country: Multnomah Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Latourell Falls, Wahclella Falls … the list goes on (and on!) because the Oregon side of the Gorge is home to some 90 different waterfalls. Yes, 90! And then, we’d be remiss not to mention the beautiful Heavenly Falls at the Portland Japanese Garden. This is an immensely gorgeous waterfall located in one of the most pristine and peaceful places in PDX.

What are some fun waterfall hikes in Oregon?

One of our favorite waterfall hikes in Oregon is at Hug Point Recreation Site. This isn’t as much as a hike as it is a walk from your car to the beach, where you’ll discover a beautiful beachside waterfall! Located on a picturesque piece of Oregon shoreline, Hug Point State Recreation Site is one of Oregon’s most incredible treasures. Why? Well, because it’s here where you’ll discover a hidden coastal oasis: a waterfall beach in Oregon! Hug Point Falls is a 15-foot waterfall that gently cascades down a sandstone drop-off along the Oregon Coast. With sublime scenery and the sounds of waves *and* cascades, this place is a dream destination for waterfall chasers! Of course, if you’re looking for more of a classic waterfall hike, you can’t go wrong at Silver Falls State Park, an Oregon oasis that’s home to 10 stunning falls! And on the Trail of Ten Falls Loop, you can visit all 10 of the park’s winsome waterfalls. You’ll even get to walk behind a waterfall curtain on this trail. How amazing!
