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

August 23, 2017 - As part of our day to see as many falls as possible, we stopped at Horsetail Falls and we were not disappointed. After a short walk from the parking area, we were in a position to see the falls. If you...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.

Lovely little detour to see these beautiful falls. There is a viewing area that is easily accessible from the road and plenty of hiking options. We hiked the roughly .5 mile path up to the falls, it's a relatively easy hike, a bit steep and...More

The drive on the scenic highway along the Columbia River was great and offered many idyllic stops. This falls was one. A busy place but visited at peak time. Amazing that it is so close to the road!

Beautiful waterfall, right off the parking lot, so you don't have to walk far. Could take a dip if weather is hot. beautiful place to contemplate nature, busy though.

Multnomah Falls is a popular destination so get there early. The walk to the bridge is not bad and the views are spectacular. The loop around and above the falls is a bit of work but the falls along the trail are worth seeing.

If you are coming from The Dalles area this is the first falls you will come to. There is a small parking lot right across from the falls. You can get about 30 yards from where the water falls into the pond. It's very nice....More

The hike isn't easy but totally worth it. If you hike the first .4 miles you will come across the Horsetail falls which you can go swimming in. Then if you hiking another .4 miles you will come across some amazing views over looking the...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... More
