My fiancée and I spent an entire day hiking the waterfalls around the Columbia River Highway! Definitely recommend coming early in the morning (we got there at 9am) to beat the crowds and have unobstructed views of the gorgeous waterfalls!

This waterfall was beautiful! It is also the starting point for a hike to another waterfall, Fairy Falls!

This hike is pretty short to get right up to the base of the falls and the pathway is paved. The parking lot is small but we didn't have any issue with parking.

Beautiful waterfall along the river. Plenty of places to park. Really short viewing so there are always spots opening up. Great day trip if you're in the area. Make sure to visit all of the falls along the road.
