Multnomah Falls, one of Oregon’s most iconic attractions, is finally in the process of reopening after being closed for months during Covid-19.
It’s understandable why the parks service closed Multnomah Falls originally because this spot is well-known in Oregon for attracting tourists from all over the world along with hikers and photographers. Now that the state is winning the battle against Coronavirus, this iconic spot is slowly reopening.
What To Expect
If you’ve visited Multnomah Falls in the past, you know that this spot is frequently crowded on any day of the week but that’s going to change since the park’s service is reopening it in phases.
With Phase 1, Multnomah falls will only be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and it’s going to be capped at just 300 people during the hours of 9:00 and 6:00 pm daily.
To access this area, you must check-in then wait in life (while social distancing) from the parking lot that’s behind the lodge.
Thankfully, once Phase 2 is implemented, there will be an online ticketing system that will make it possible for 300 people per hour to visit here but those reservations will need to be made at least one day in advance.
Face Coverings Required
Even though life is slowly getting back to ‘normal’, face coverings are still required so remember to bring your face covering and do your part to social distance so that the park’s service will keep this area open.
