When you pull up to this fall, you think it is only this fall. Park your car, get your shoes on and do the whole loop---it is SO worth it! There are so many different amazing falls---even one you can hike under----my kids, age 8 and 12 where in awe---so fun and not too extreme!

Horsetail Falls is really picturesque and right on the side of the Historic Highway. Nice for a short stop while on your tour of amazing Oregon waterfalls! Bring your camera!

Just down the road from Multnomah you come across Horsetail falls, right next to the highway easy parking and just a perfect stopping spot with less business than the more popular spot down the road, accessible by the historic highway, and worth the drive.

Very powerful falls, great as a stop on the drive. Apparently there is good hiking in the area. Would love to stop by again and do some hiking.

For me this was one of the less spectacular falls along the highway. Worth a look, but if you're running short on time, not a must-do. The hiking around here is steep, but would be beautiful if you were prepared for it.

We had planned to go to Multnomah Falls but there was no parking. So instead we visited Horsetail and Ponytail Falls. A short hike but definitely pretty.

My wife and I were visiting our daughter and son-in-law in Portland, OR in late October and we visited this spot during a day trip with them. This is a very nice waterfall- and right off the main road. The water was almost milky white in appearance- very neat. This is well worth the time to stop, walk around and... More

Fun place to visit, many stairs, so not handicap accessible. The service was friendly and spot-on. Nice that they are generous to let you taste their beer. Food was good, not exceptional.

It was fun to walk under one of the falls. If you keep going a little ways past the water falls, there is a great lookout point a little further up the trail. Spectacular views of the river below.

But I didn't give it the highest rating, only because the competition from Multnomah and Latourell Falls is just too great. It's still worth a stop and a photo, but it's too bad that you will encounter it after the two stars of the waterfall show on a drive up from Portland. Otherwise, you would be astonished and probably rate... More
