“Aptly Named”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Beautiful falls just down the road from Multnomah Falls yet few traveled on to see what else was along that road. Yet another spectacular waterfall with a nice view from the road but much better up close and personal.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It is a shame so many people slow down and look without getting out of their cars and walking across the street to savor the feel of the spray, and marvel at the height and power of these magnificent falls. They are accessible even for the disabled, and are worth a fifteen minutes of your time.

“What a waterfall!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This waterfall is directly off of the gorge highway. We noticed that a lot of people just slowed down to see it, but I would definitely recommend getting out of your vehicle to really experience it. First of all, it is so loud. This waterfall is beautiful and tall -- so amazing. You can feel the water splash a good distance away. There is a hike that starts here that leads to the upper horsetail falls, but we didn't have the time to do this hike. I wish that we would have made time.
