    Is it legal to carry concealed (with a valid CHL) at Multnomah Falls and the trails nearby? The USDA Forest Service website says that the falls are part of the "Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area," but I'm not sure how that relates to concealed carry.

    It's legal to cc or oc. When out hiking I oc and have never had a problem. Even at multnomah falls.

    Just make sure that the first one doesn't derive from the second one :)

    ??? Does this include the buildings? I know the law recently changed to allow in National Parks. Unsure of how that applies to:
    A) National Scenic Area
    B) Buildings in National Parks
    C) Buildings in National Scenic Area

    If federal employees work in the building, it's illegal. The Columbia Rivet Gorge National Scenic Area is under the forest service so their rules would apply. They will specifically ban shooting but I've never seen anything from them prohibiting possession of firearms.

    The building (gift shop/restaurant) is a leased consession from the FS and there used to be a FS office in the building which also houses the Forest Service information center.
