Spend The Day Exploring Oregon’s Tallest Falls On This Wonderful Waterfall Road Trip
Oregon is a waterfall lover’s paradise, with at least 238 named waterfalls across the state. If you’d like to see 8 of Oregon’s tallest falls in just one day, you’ll want to head to the Columbia River Valley, which is just brimming with waterfalls. Here are some of the most impressive on our waterfall road trip in Oregon!
This road trip doesn’t include the top 8 tallest falls. Some of those waterfalls are difficult to reach, or were too far outside the starting area of our trip to make them feasible to include. However, all 8 of the falls along this road trip are amongst the top 40 tallest waterfalls in Oregon.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
