This is an impressive site from almost any vantage point along State Highway 99 East and Interstate 205 near Oregon City. The Willamette River pours more than 40 feet of water over a basaltic ridge built in the 1870s. From certain locations, the falls appear to be completely round, dropping into a hole, while the actual shape is a huge half circle, built to direct traffic around the river. A view from West Linn can be used to watch boats along the river, while the Oregon City side offers frequent turnouts.
