“Our favorite fall”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a beautiful fall, not as crowded as others easy to access and has picnic tables as well as a hiking trail if you should be so inclined. The warning at the trail states the bridge can hold one safely so be advised!

“Another beautiful Gorge hike”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

A lovely hike through the pines growing along the edge of the Gorge. It's a little steep in places, and my advice is to wear sturdy shoes and take some water. Less than a mile to the Horsetail Bridge, then a short distance to the waterfall.

“Oneonta Gorge to Horsetail Falls”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Had a lovely hike from the Oneonta Gorge trailhead (just west of the Tunnel), up and over the bridge and down behind Upper Horsetail Falls to come out on Horsetail Falls. There is a beautiful viewpoint between the Oneonta bridge and Upper Horsetail Falls that's work the walk all by itself. It's also exceedingly cool that the trail goes behind the upper falls, with a nice view down the creek out to the Columbia. There's a bit of steep involved, but the payoff is a beautiful hike, and all downhill on the way out ;).

About three miles total for the loop, which will put you back on the scenic highway about 1/4 mile from the starting trailhead - normally I would warn you off against walking along the highway, but there is a large shoulder through this stretch.
