With combined drops cited at 630 feet, Multnomah Falls is often billed as the tallest waterfall in Oregon. Just up the road from Multnomah Falls is the much less heralded Wahkeena Falls. If Wahkeena were located anywhere else in Oregon, it would be a stand-alone attraction. What you miss from the road, however, is everything above both of these falls. As it happens, you can visit both falls, as well as four other named cascades, by hiking the classic Multnomah/Wahkeena Falls loop.
