Oneonta Gorge and 6 Falls

This trail is in the Columbia Gorge. The trail starts by stunning Horsetail Falls. We then climb up and soon see and walk behind Ponytail Falls. We continue to climb along the rim of Oneonta Gorge with views down into the narrow gorge. As we near the bridge over the gorge, we can spot 3 more falls that tumble down Oneonta Gorge. After crossing the bridge we continue another mile up to Triple Falls, a great lunch spot. We will return on a loop back down to the trailhead.
