This is were I go to reflect. I haven't been there since the fire . It's gorgeous. There is also an upper fall that feeds the pool, it's a straight up hike. I can't make it up there anymore but if your young and perpared...More
We loved the 176 ft-high Horsetail Falls for several reasons. The falls are only steps from the parking area, which also has picnic areas to provide a nice resting place along the scenic highway. It appears that in warmer weather this might make for an...More
Horsetail and most of the trails nearby are closed through September 18 and maybe longer due to the Eagle Creek Fire. You can drive from Troutdale to Bridalveil and do the short hike to Bridalveil. Multnomah is accessible from I-84 only.
This place is a beautiful place. The trail is excellent. But, unfortunately, there was a major forest fire in the Columbia Gorge this past summer, 2017. As of March, 2018, this falls is not open to the public. In fact, the *only* trail currently open...More
I've hiked most of the gorge including numerous waterfalls - Horsetail is right alongside the highway so no hike is involved - plenty are available though. Right now (early 2018) most Gorge attractions are off limits from the 2017 fire so check the websites to...More
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

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 maps of hiking trails and a map to hike all the Water Falls in the loop. If you going in July you will enjoy it as it should be really hot and humid. You can also take a scenic drive that takes you up to Crown Point ( a must see), and a stop at The ViewPoint Inn built in 1926 that is on the cover of the book Twilight and the Prom was filmed there in the movie. It burned on the inside and they were renovating it when I was there. The best investment you can buy is a book called Curious Gorge by Scott Cook. It covers over 100 Hikes and Explorations in the Columbia Gorge.I keep it in my car and have almost seen everything in the book :)
