Description

Added by Brodie Fisher

*Access to Triple Falls is currently closed. This is a gorgeous hike following the Oneonta trail along the Columbia River Gorge. Not only will you reach a phenomenal natural flowing triple waterfall, but you will pass several other hidden beauties that are lying in wait along the Columbia River Gorge.

Access to Triple Falls is currently closed. Learn more on the Forest Service Site.

This hike, starting at the Oneonta Trailhead is a 3.2 mile roundtrip. You will gain approximately 600 feet in elevation as the trail often switches from moderate flat easy hiking to more difficult elevation gain and even a little bit of downhill. You will soon reach a junction point (#438) that leads to the Horsetail Falls trail where you can also view the Middle Oneonta Falls. Once you continue on from the junction you will start a series of switchbacks that will lead you upwards toward Upper Oneonta Falls. The final segment of the trail is a little sketchy as there have been multiple land slides. The last time I visited Triple Falls, the trail was actually under construction due to a landslide. The trail is typically very wide but the cliffs can still be dangerous so please proceed with caution!

Reviews

I really wasn’t crazy about this hike but I don’t feel like I wasted my time. There’s better falls in the Gorge but I’m glad to have crossed this off my list

One of my favorite hikes of all time, this one never ceases to impress. If you like waterfalls and tree canopies than this one is for you. It is also possible to begin at Horsetail Falls parking area, though parking can be competitive here. Like others have said this hike does have some steep inclines so some physical conditioning is recommended. And if you feel up to it you can continue past Triple Falls, about 1 mile past the falls the Oneonta Trail starts up and goes all the way to the summit of Larch Mountain.

This hike is perfect if you only have an afternoon or morning. It is not too long, but the view of the falls at the end is breathtaking!

Gorgeous views and scenery - some parts are a bit steep so I agree it's more of an intermediate hike. But lots of photo opps and beautiful water scenes (long exposure). Highly recommend!
