The Multnomah Falls, located on the east of Troutdale, Columbia River Gorge, Multnomah County in Oregon in the United States of America is a very popular place in Oregon. The beautiful waterfall falls in two steps, an upper fall of about 542 feet and a smaller fall of 9 foot. The waterfall which is the tallest in Oregon is 620 ft in total height. The Falls gets its water from the underground springs from Larch Mountain and other runoffs from the mountain and rainfall during rainy seasons. And unlike many other lakes, it does not dry up during the late summer. For a closer and more perfect view of the fall, tourists have to climb a few hundred feet up the hill to reach the Benson bridge, named after Simon Benson who was a prominent business man and owned the bridge in the 1900s.
American Native folklore has it that the falls was created to win the heart of a princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe.
