A beautiful hike!

Google took us to a weird side road so the hike was quicker but was still beautiful!

It's one of my favorite training Runs

This was a great hike. It was very windy but nice and sunny!

Amazing Waterfall

This was the first place we stopped on our road trip to Oregon, the trail was closed because of the fires in 2017 but the falls themselves were absolutely gorgeous! definitely a lot of people there and you really have to wait to get on the bridge but it was worth it!

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

Hiked on Jan 1, 2019: no parking fee, no bathrooms at TH, well-marked trail, parking lot fills quickly on wknds, Trail closed/gated at Ponytail Falls. This was a quick beautiful hike (1.5 miles RT) to Ponytail Falls.

Beautiful hike

Absolutely Beautiful Ending and well worth the time to get there.... Recommended as a good Beginner Trail

Very good trail, would definitely do it again! Easy hike with young kids. Our 4 year olds walked the whole two miles and our 6 year olds said it wasn’t long enough. I suggest getting there early we showed up at about 10:30am and ran into a few big groups and a few individuals, however the parking lot was full when we got back and was filling on the side of the roads.

Trail is currently closed!!! Tried to take the pup here today but it’s all gated off!

Fun and semi easy 2 mile hike. Beautiful waterfall, but to get to the bottom of this fall, you will have to go down the steps at the end of the hike. There’s a nice waterfall half way up, which will definitely add value to the hike.

Super short and easy hike with a decent two tiered waterfall at the end. I recommend only going if you combine this outing with another hike in the Gorge, for example the Latourell falls.

Today was a lovely hike. The undergrowth and birds have returned. There were very few other people on the trail which also made it lovely.

The lower falls is stunning. There were a lot of people gathered at the base of it but the water fall was still beautiful. The upper falls was personally better but the lower falls did not upset.

The hike was beautiful. My girlfriend and I hiked this trail during the summer and enjoyed every bit of the views and nature. We personally enjoyed the upper falls better than the lower falls on the loop trail due to the fact that there were a lot less people and you could just get a lot closer. The trail itself had a couple look out points which made it that much more rewarding. Both are beautiful falls though.

Went beginning of Jan when it was in the mid 40s. Not too muddy and no micro spikes needed.

Had some great views but the last 1.2 miles is just road. If you turn around at the waterfall to do an out and back it’d probably be something like 10 miles. Didn’t encounter cars on the road though which was good.

Horsetail & Ponytail falls are beautiful this time of year, even though it was super cold. Be aware that this trail is a tad steep, but not too difficult. The trail to Triple Creek is closed still due to the fire, but the trail for Horsetail & Ponytail are open and clear.

AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!!! Has to be one of the most beautiful places on this planet. Steep, but my kids were able to do it just fine.

Way too many people here to enjoy the water falls base. But the higher you go up the fewer people there are and the view improves too. Since the fire happened the trees are thinner allowing you to see more of the river and the far side of the river. I love Multnomah Falls but I wish it was less accessible to Instagram model wannabes.

If you don't like edges, don't do this waterfall hike!!

Good New Year’s Eve hike, snow was very picturesque!

Took about an hour and a half. Took my time and enjoyed the beauty of the trail. The part of the trail on the other side of the main road is paved, but the trail that loops above the waterfall is dirt. I encountered several families that were enjoying themselves. There are definitely opportunities to get too close to an edge, but there seemed to be adequate precautions to prevent that from happening. I will definitely be doing this hike again.

Inadvertently hiked this trail via Dry Creek Rd which ended up being a ten minute hike LOL. The road in is all rocks. The trail is muddy, but more of a squishy muddy im assuming due to all the foliage in the ground on top of the dirt.

Falls were beautiful.

Great hike, not a workout at all.

Very easy hike with a great reward at the end. Only lasts about 25 minutes tops. Right now it is very muddy and wet, but slickness is not an issue.

Christmas Day 2018. Started from the toll park in Cascade Locks. Not too challenging, well marked path. Out and back ended up being about 5 miles. The falls were beautiful.

Beautiful!!!!! Work driving out from Portland to see it. About 40 minutes away from the downtown. There’s a restaurant and lounge here too. We didn’t go in, but good to know for next time. We walked alway to waterfall and had to head back as it was raining. Feet were soaked, otherwise we would have done entire hike.

The directions in this app tell you that you are there before you are. Just keep going on the road and you will come to a parking lot. We took the loop starting on the left of the first waterfall. It's steep at first but not as steep as the other side. I was surprised that there were so many people there on Christmas day and can just imagine how busy it would be on a sunny day. we had to park outside the parking lot. nice waterfalls for a short trail.
