Headed up to Portland for a niece's wedding and did a little exploring while in the area. Multnomah Falls is clearly a popular highlight of the area. An advance permit is required for parking.

I ended up hiking up to the top of the falls, where there is a recessed platform (not visible from the observation deck below, or from the bridge). As with all waterfalls, the most impressive views are from the bottom up, and this is no exception. Indeed, the view from the top platform allows very little in the way of views of the falls. It does allow you to see across over the Columbia river. But, for most (including everyone else in my group), the steep climb in a short distance is probably not worth the exertion, unless ....

I saw that there are some great loop hikes possible from here (see photo), including one that passes by 4 additional waterfalls. If you have time to do that, then the climb up is certainly worth it. If I end up going back again, I would set aside time to do that.
