Horsetail Falls Loop

January 7, 2014

Over the weekend we hiked the Horsetail Falls Loop in the Columbia Gorge. This fairly short hike packs in three separate waterfalls and a few gorge views. It has some elevation gain and even a peek into Oneonta Gorge. The trail was quite rocky and we had to hold the girls hands often to navigate the rough terrain. Here we are in the parking lot with Horsetail Falls in the background.Image

 

After a few ascending switchbacks we reached level ground far above the parking lot. Around a corner we came to Ponytail Falls.Image

 

The trail passes behind these falls. We decided the cave was a good place to stop for snacks.

We had to stop a few times for breaks and once to let the silliness out.Image

 

After the hike we had a picnic in the warm car. After the peek at Oneonta we can’t wait to explore it during the summer.
