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

The Oneonta Gorge has been on my list of things to do for years. Today it got marked off the bucket list. This trail is actually not a trail at all. You make your way up the creek, as it narrows. Beware the log jam,...More

I won't repeat what other fans have said, because they are all right. It is amazingly beautiful, and fun to climb over the logs. I didn't understand people trying to carry their dogs through, you really do need to walk through waste high water. We...More

We planned to arrive around 8am; but slept in and didn't get here until about 10:30 and were worried about crowds. The log jam can be intimidating to navigate but everyone is patient and just remember to have shoes with grip that are also good...More

The falls are fantastic. The water is freezing, the logs are tall, and it is a wonderful adventure and story to tell. I highly recommend this as a spot for athletic people looking for a short hike with a pretty view. That said, do not...More

In April, I stayed in Portland and "hiked" Oneonta Gorge to get to the waterfall. It's a 20-25 drive. I'd recommend you get a cheap car rental because getting an Uber may be expensive. The rental cost me $45 for 3 days.
