  • This is a truly rare waterfall, one where you can see it from all 360 degrees. Walking around behind a waterfall is something that is very rare opportunity. It is a short hike from the horsetail...

  • ONE WORD!!! Amazing!!! AWESOME!!! Incredible!!! BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m so blessed to be able to visit amazing places like this Oregon. Amazing! this place was burnt down a few years ago. Even with dead trees and burn trees still beautiful. Visit if you can it’s worth it. Keep it clean keep it beautiful ✌️❤️
  • Short hike up to Ponytail Falls. Make sure to go online and get a waterfall permit for the day before coming. You can also take a swim at the waterfall as well.
  • The waterfall it's gorgeous You have to hike for 10 or 15 minutes but it really worth it.
  • Short hike up to the upper horsetail fall (pony tail fall). We visited in mid October during weekday, and there was plenty of space in the parking lot, even though Multnomah fall parking lot was fairly croweded with lots of crowd.
  • Great hike that’s less crowded than the more popular M falls. Does a loop so you can get 5 waterfalls within 5 miles.
