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. But , you have... More

We parked at Oneanta Falls and hiked up and back to Horsetail Falls. We approached the falls after hiking 2+ miles and were thrilled to see this falls. We had intended to hike to Triple Falls, but trail damage prevented my wife's knees from making the last part of the trail to the Falls. Disappointed, we turned back and decided... More

We did this hike backwards and ended up doing a 2.7 mile loop, but saw a damaged bridge, and 3 different waterfalls as well as the top of the slot canyon gorge trail/waterfall. There is a way to make this a loop or can hike about 0.9 miles to just see the lower horsetail falls in the parking lot and... More

3 with an option of 4 waterfalls, one of which you get to walk underneath. This was a hike well worth the 90 min it took us.

First it seems hard walking up the hill but it gets easier and it is worth the walk. My wife and I thought it was breathtaking.

This is a truly fantastic waterfall with amazing accesability. Only a few minutes drive off the freeway allows you to walk up and plung into the pool if desired. If you don't have a lot of time to enjoy your trip through the gorge, stop here and take it in. If you have more time and want to hike, start... More

One of the best falls. Worth finding a parking space. You do not have to hike to it. The falls are right on there on the road.

This parking lot is a little easier than Multnomah Fallls to find space. Horsetail Falls is popular, though, since you can see it from the road. Save time to hike the trail past Horsetail, it is worth it. It is very scenic and peaceful.
