Beautiful falls just off the scenic highway where you can dip your toes in the cool water. Easy to photograph the entire falls. There is parking right across the road, but be careful of the traffic.

Very easy to access right off the Historic Columbia River Highway. Parking lot is right there and had plenty of spaces. Not touristy at all. Very pretty falls. No restrooms, food, or drink.

This place was great to stop at, took a dip in the second level falls pool. Cold but felt nice on that hot day. Oh FYI don't follow the directions on your phone to this place, it took us to the center of the town. Just follow along 30 to multnomah falls.

Horsetail Falls, unlike it's neighbours Multnomah and Wahkeena, requires no mini-hike to get to a bridge. The falls are into a pool that is right beside there road.

Great hike and very pretty with the rock formations. Not too hard as we just went as far as we could about a mile and came back out. You can go at least another mile if you want.

Unless you visit Hawaii alot, this is probably one of the few areas within the US that has a pocket of very unique waterfalls, and very accessible to the public.-- This really should be a national park, but the people got here first and a few towns exist within the Columbia River Gorge,including railroad and interstate.
