Historic Hood River
Transit to the Falls
This Gifford and Prentiss image of Multnomah Falls hearkens back to a day when you could take the train to the falls, as evidenced by the uniform of the man in the middle. Congestion at this #1 tourist attraction in Oregon has prompted ODOT and the USFS to institute a permit entry system to limit the number of visitors parking at the falls. While we don’t have the option of visiting by train anymore, we can now use the Columbia Gorge Express bus service to get to the falls without worrying about parking lot congestion.
