The landscape is beautiful here, it looks like it's from a movie. The waterfalls is about a 15 minute hike from the parking lot.

I highly recommend renting a drysuit unless you're doing the river hike in super hot weather. Unless you want to be super freezing cold and wet. You can rent a drysuit from Alder Creek in Portland. Great company! We staid comfortably dry and warm enough as we could wear breathable quick drying layers (not cotton) underneath the suit. The hike... More

I recently got back from Hawaii where I also did several hikes on two islands and I must say, this hike was more beautiful, in my opinion, than the hikes I did there. I only wish I could have had more time to do more. I started at the parking lot for the Horsetail falls, hiked to Ponytail falls, then... More

Surprisingly AMAZING!! I saw pics but the pics didn't do it justice. Be sure to bring a towel and a change of clothes to leave in the car. Don't bring anything you can't get wet. And make sure to wear shoes that have a good grip because you'll be climbing. Saw some people bring their kids but that seemed crazy...the... More

A friend from out of town was dying to see this place and we hadn't been before. A lot of the reviews said it's great to bring your dog so we headed out with pup in tow. We went during the summer on a weekend and it was PACKED. It was like watching ants on an ant hill. Our dog's... More

Let me start by saying there was snow on the ground around the area. We went on Saturday, March 3rd. Because of the lack of winter reviews, I couldn't tell if it was "doable", this time of year. When we got there, there were only 3 other cars parked. The people were just looking at the gorge off the bridge.... More

Wasn't able to go on the hike as it was closed because of the snow. I walked through the tunnel and was able to take some pictures as well as walk around and immerse myself in the wonder of the little walk.

Beautiful and a reasonable hike for a novice or expert. Central location so not far off the beaten path.

A wonderful Gorge spot - great any time of year, but all the best on a hot summer day - Oneonta is so cool and fresh in comparison. Come prepared for a swim!

I keep telling myself it was worth it as I was not prepared to get wet or dirty wearing a leather jacket and also holding a lot of electronics to boot. I climbed over some giant logs and then went into chest deep water to look at water falling over rocks. I'm either a complete idiot or a monumental genius.... More
