Each time we travel to Portland, we slow or stop to view the falls. In winter, we stop to take pictures of the ice forming at the falls.

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.

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

Horsetail Falls was not far north of Multnomah Falls and, right off the road, there was easier access to the falls and the swimming hole at its base. It seemed to be a popular summer place for locals and so far, no commercial buildings here....More

Absolutely beautiful waterfalls. Park right off the the road and walk right up to the falls. You can walk down to the pool of water at the bottom of the falls and sit and enjoy.

Horsetails Falls does does not receive the press that Mulinomah Falls does, but they are beautiful in the their right. Parking was a little tight, but we found a spot. Truly worth a few minutes of your vacation time.
