Vandals Make Hiking Dangerous at Multnomah Falls

Written by Mike Turner on March 25, 2014

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.
