Vandals Make Hiking Dangerous at Multnomah Falls

Benson-Bridge-Multnomah-Fal

Vandals have been putting hikers in danger at Multnomah Falls.

The Benson Bridge and the connected trail were closed after a huge boulder broke loose from the mountainside in early January. Forest Service spokeswoman Jen Kevil says someone keeps tearing down the closure signs and cutting through the safety fences.

A boulder fell onto the bridge in early January and left a gaping hole. Inspectors said it won’t be safe to cross until after Memorial Day, when repairs are completed.
