This is a beautiful water fall near the road so it's very easy to access. We didn't go hiking but I had read signs near some of the other falls stating the trails were closed due to a fire in the area so definitely check...More
Please note ... Horsetail and Pony Tail falls are closed due to the September 2017 Eagle Creek Fire. Two problems ... the trails are all closed due to the fire damage. The FS and many volunteers are working daily to restore the trails but they...More
Horsetail Falls is another waterfall along the Gorge. The Drop is 176 feet.
This waterfall is easily accessed, as it is right next to the Highway. The shape of the falls and the rounded rockface over which it flows cause it to resemble a horse's...More
This is were I go to reflect. I haven't been there since the fire . It's gorgeous. There is also an upper fall that feeds the pool, it's a straight up hike. I can't make it up there anymore but if your young and perpared...More
We loved the 176 ft-high Horsetail Falls for several reasons. The falls are only steps from the parking area, which also has picnic areas to provide a nice resting place along the scenic highway. It appears that in warmer weather this might make for an...More
Horsetail and most of the trails nearby are closed through September 18 and maybe longer due to the Eagle Creek Fire. You can drive from Troutdale to Bridalveil and do the short hike to Bridalveil. Multnomah is accessible from I-84 only.
This place is a beautiful place. The trail is excellent. But, unfortunately, there was a major forest fire in the Columbia Gorge this past summer, 2017. As of March, 2018, this falls is not open to the public. In fact, the *only* trail currently open...More
I've hiked most of the gorge including numerous waterfalls - Horsetail is right alongside the highway so no hike is involved - plenty are available though. Right now (early 2018) most Gorge attractions are off limits from the 2017 fire so check the websites to...More

I live in Portland and have visited the Gorge several times by car and some hiking trips. I don't do water sports as the water is freezing all year! When you go to Multnomah Falls there is a visiting center where you can get maps of hiking trails and a map to hike all the Water Falls in the loop. If you going in July you will enjoy it as it should be really hot and humid. You can also take a scenic drive that takes you up to Crown Point ( a must see), and a stop at The ViewPoint Inn built in 1926 that is on the cover of the book Twilight and the Prom was filmed there in the movie. It burned on the inside and they were renovating it when I was there. The best investment you can buy is a book called Curious Gorge by Scott Cook. It covers over 100 Hikes and Explorations in the Columbia Gorge.I keep it in my car and have almost seen everything in the book :)
