This was a unique falls in that the top had it's own water flow and then it looked like the falls twisted in the middle and flowed a completely different way in the beautiful body of water below.

Horsetail Falls is right off the historic highway (a gorgeous drive along the Columbia River Gorge). This is a great spot to just rest and picnic.

Very ease to visit it. I-84 is close by. And a local road connects near by attractions together. There are parking lots for it. If you have time, there are trails for further explore.

Unlike some of the magnificent falls along the gorge, Horsetail Falls provides an up-close vantage point to those willing to walk down a few steps and scramble over a few stones. The falls are picturesque. As a photographer, I have enjoyed shooting it from down low, including some of the rocks at the pool's edge for foreground interest. Use a... More

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.
