Planning a trip to Multnomah Falls this summer? Before you hit the road to visit one of the most popular destinations near Portland, make sure you read through these new requirements.
Starting July 20, visitors to Multnomah Falls must reserve a timed ticket online.
On a busy summer weekend, the parking lot at Multnomah Falls fills up quickly. Crowds also head to the historic highway to try to get a look at the beautiful site. This summer, visiting the falls will require timed reservation tickets. This new system is an effort to reduce congestion, improve safety issues on Exit 31 and the Historic Columbia River Highway, and improve access to Multnomah Falls.
Timed reservation tickets will be required July 20, 2021 through September 19, 2021. Reservations are available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be 600 visitors allowed per hour.
Tickets are $1 per person, which covers the processing fee of your reservation. You can reserve up to 6 tickets at a time. Infants and small children need to be included in your reservation. Timed reservation tickets can be booked up to two weeks in advance.
The person named on entry ticket must be present at time of entry. The timed reservation tickets are valid for an hour.
There is one catch to this. A timed reservation ticket does not guarantee a parking space. If you are heading to Multnomah Falls with a group, try to take only one vehicle so there are more parking spots for other visitors. The parking lot is located at exit 31 on I-84.
