Hike the Horsetail Falls Loop
Oregon › Horsetail Falls Trail
Added by Scott Kranz
Get great views of 3 amazing Gorge waterfalls with this short hike. Even better, this quick hike gives you time to check out more waterfalls in the gorge.
Start off on this loop from Horsetail Falls Trailhead. It never hurts to start a hike with a view of Horsetail Falls. This 2.5 mile loop will start you off on Gorge trail #400 up Horsetail Falls Trail. You’ll encounter a few switchbacks before the trail flattens out and leads you into the valley toward Ponytail Falls. As you continue on this loop, you’ll get to hike behind the falls.
After continuing on the Trail, you’ll reach Oneonta Gorge. Once you’re here, you’ll be able to see the top of Oneonta Falls. From here, you’ll continue hiking for about a mile until you’re back at the trailhead.
