Horsetail Falls
Best viewed at 800x600 Screen Resolution

The Oneonta Gorge trail is right next door to overcrowded Multnomah Falls, but is often overlooked by tourists.  The easy, 2.7 mile round-trip trail starts beside 176-foot Horsetail Falls (left) and climbs along a mossy slope of little licorice ferns.  After 0.2 miles, the trail ducks behind Ponytail Falls (alias Upper Horsetail Falls). 

Beyond the falls 0.4 miles, there lies a panoramic viewpoint of the gorge, followed another 0.4 miles later by a dramatic metal footbridge over 60-foot Oneonta Falls.  You can take a side trip up to Triple Falls, or call it quits there.  You can also trek up the Oneonta Gorge to a hidden 100-foot waterfall.  Another beautiful hike.
