We really enjoyed this experience as we got to scale some logs, wade in waist-Deep water and enjoy a waterfall in the end. It is quite busy and the logs are quite dangerous (more so the people who run through or let their big dogs...More

We originally set out to visit the really popular tourist place down the road. There was a 1 hour line of traffic though and no parking, so we decided to drive past it. What a great stroke of luck that decision was! Parking was much...More

Oneonta gorge is one of the major attraction near Portland,OR. Trail starts with crossing log jam (difficult part of this trek). Many turned down seeing the huge log pile up. (risky to climb and cross) still doable. After this just need to walk in the...More

our beautiful Columbia Gorge is ruined by a teenager arsonist from Vancouver, Washington. Right now 32,000 acres are on fire. It won't recover in my lifetime.

This is a nature special short hiking trail, around 1 mile we guess. It's not far away but not only walking, and will take you around 60-90 mins for having fun. As you could see in the photos, there are big woods and water, so...More

This is the ultimate hike. So beautiful. That being said--we went early in the morning and arrived before the crowds. Our family of four had the waterfall to ourselves for quite awhile. There were others we saw going in and out of the gorge, but...More

So we did this "hike" 2 days ago, and there is a couple of things everyone should know. First, it was crowded. If you are enamored with pictures of pristine, impossibly green, moss covered vertical walls, what you probably don't see are the dozens to...More

This is a must go place in Oregon. the Fall is at the end of a river, so from the road you have no clue what's in there. You have to walk trought the river, so there is no way to reach the fall without...More

Yes, this is not exactly a trail, but it is sure worth the short trek through the cold water. The gorge is incredible and the waterfall at the end is worth every step in the water. Just take your time crossing the log jam/rock at...More

I think you will still thoroughly enjoy yourself. The gorge is stunning. Just be mindful of rain and don’t get caught in too high of water after a heavy rain . Getting a little cold and wet, is worth the effort to see this... More

There was no tape when we arrived. I read there was a flash flood in May, which closed the gorge. Everything was great when we were there at the end of July.

Once you are past the logjam, it's only ~20 min round trip to the waterfall at the end of the gorge. But give yourself a few additional minutes to enjoy stuff along the way. However, the logjam is unpredictable. If it's... More
