If you went to Multnomah Falls first, Horsetail Falls will probably be a dud. But if you came here first, its quite lovely! If it was a bit warmer, and NOT raining, I might have even gone in for a dip in the pool...is that legal?

It was spring but windy and rainy when we visited but the falls was still beautiful and totally worth the visit. There is a trail to walk up to the TOP of the falls which we didn't take as it was muddy. Multomah falls is also a short drive away and a must see!

We came across this waterfall on our way up the hill to Multnomah Falls. There is a parking area, where you then walk across the street to the view point. You can feel the water spray you, which is nice.

This was my first time to see them and I was not disappointed. The drive was very scenic and worth the trip. I would go again.

This falls is practically in the parking lot. You can see it from the Historic Columbia River Highway. I'm sure you can take a hike and see more, but we didn't - we just stopped the car and jumped out. There was not an empty parking space so our driver saw it from the vehicle while we jumped out and... More

If you start here at this parking lot you can get a nice picture of the falls but the great thing about this area is the hike! This hike winds you behind a waterfall which is a neat experience. This trail is one of the easier ones in the area but joins up with the Oneonta falls trail which is... More

This was the furthest west lighthouse that we took in on Old Highway 30 in the Columbia River Gorge. It was really flowing since there had been a lot of rain lately. It is neat that there is a little walkway down kind of into the bowl of the waterfall. The spray was really flying. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing it.... More

This waterfall is right off one of the little roads that takes your toward Multnomah Falls. Right across the street from the falls is a little parking area. It is good to get there early to ensure a parking spot.

We accidentally passed by this falls on the way to Multnomah. It is beautiful and just right by the road, no hiking required. The path was icy though in December but is not an issue since you don't really have to hike to get close. You can view it from the parking area as well. Well worth a stop.
