Beautiful hike! I would definitely do it again, but in the summer. My car could only make it within 2 miles of the trailhead, so we walked up the road to get there. We had to stamp through the snow the entire time, which made for an adventure! However, I definitely recommend snowshoes if you hike in the winter months. The views from the top were stunning and made the trudging worth it in the end.

This trail was a good workout. Some mud in spots and joggers passing through which means stepping off the narrow trails in spots. Quiet, diverse, all different types of trees but popular the closer you get to the zoo. Love to go in the spring when the magnolia trees are in bloom.

One of my favorite hikes! Done it many times and it's good in any season! Amazing views of Mt St Helen's, Mt Rainier, Mt Adam's, Mt Hood and Mt Bachelor from the top!!

Good trail to build endurance and condtion on.

Fun trail. Hiked on 1/20/18. Needed snow shoes to get to the top.

Great hike! Not hard. Moderate is a better tag. Enjoy!

We only visited the lower part of this trail because we were on our way to Multnomah falls and made a quick pit stop. The waterfall is strong and powerful and if it's windy you'll definitely get some mist on you. It's a very nice area to stop and look at scenery and to hike if you're aiming for this hike. There's a huge pond at the bottom of the waterfall that you can walk down to but don't expect to not get wet!

Absolutely stunning views from the top on a clear day!

Although not a particularly difficult hike all around, it starts going straight up for a while (straight down on the way back) on loose rocky terrain. Next time, I will stretch first. Nice views and satisfying hike so close to Portland. Totally worth it.

Headed out early on a Saturday morning in hopes for a sunrise summit; unfortunately mother nature had other intentions. The hike started wet and ended frozen, with snow and slush for a good portion of the hike.
The fall colors were in full bloom and by having snow on the ground we were able to identify animal tracks (cougar, bear, dear).
My only real complaint is that hunters were in the area which left me unsettled while hiking but all in all it was a great hike with lots of uphill and what I'm assuming would be spectacular views on a clear day. Total mileage was 6.7

I tried to do the Loop option about a week ago and was really looking forward to the scramble. Signs warned me that logging companies were at work, but also stated they'd be finished by September 30th (I hiked on October 6th). I naively assumed that they "must" be finished then, and attempted the Loop, but near Sturgeon Rock trees around me started collapsing. The company was still working and clearly didn't see me, so after 2 and a half miles, I had to turn around. I was really bummed but when I got back to the trailhead, I hiked to the mountain anyway. I'm glad I did because even though the Loop was unsuccessful, the out-and-back was stunning enough.

Loved this so much!!

GPS on my phone says this was 10 miles. Loved the views from the top!

Did this the week before the fire at Eagle Creek. :-( Absolutely stunning loop, moderately difficult just because of the length - so picturesque, peaceful, and lush. Will go back again and again - was so thrilled with how many waterfalls I got to see along the way. Absolutely stunning!

excellent for conditioning.

The beginning was intense for me. Steep uphill with lots of rocks. Once you get past that part the trail isn't bad at all. Some great views and dog friendly. Mostly shaded so nice on a hot summer day.

It was straight up right from the start. It was hot in the afternoon sun on one other the hottest days of the summer, but the view at the top made it all worth it. There were not many people on the trail, so it was peaceful on the way back down.

Nice trail with great views and awesome waterfalls. Start at Ponytail then hike up some good views. Then down to Horsetail falls, which you can walk underneath (great photos).

When you come to the bride over Oneonta Creek, I HIGHLY recommend you hike up the creek to Upper Oneonta Falls. That hike has many, many little falls and swimming holes, and you'll have much more privacy on this hike (as most people either don't know or don't hike this one). Afterwards, hike back down to the bridge and head to Triple Falls.

AND AllTrails doesn't seem to have a trail for the Lower Oneonta Gorge, but make sure you don't miss that one. It'll have more people, but you can jump in the COLD water and take a swim in the waterfall at the end. Great photos and tons of fun.

Four stars for the wildflowers and views! We did get lost as we tried to follow a loop that showed up on our map, but eventually managed to make our way back to the main trail. Safer to do an out and back since the loop seems to not be followed and I'm guessing the trail has been grown over. The straight up elevation gain from the parking lot is a butt-kicker, but once you're at the top it is an easy trail.

Great hike and workout, especially in the summertime. I agree with the 'hard' rating being as a majority of this hike is pretty steep up the mountainside. It's well worth the journey up!

awesome hike with spectacular views. fun ride up but definitely bring the 4x4!

beautiful views on a nice day and if you want some extra excitement check out eds trail

This was an amazing hike so much to see and take in! The waterfalls were beautiful, if I did it again I would start earlier I started really late and felt rushed and wasn't really able to enjoy the scenery as much as I had hoped to. A little precarious when you start off but it gets better for sure.

The hike was so beautiful so much to view it would be great to have a picnic at the top, the drive up is not the greatest if you don't have a 4x4 as the holes are big. There was many people shooting and when we were done hiking surprised to find people shooting by the cars. I guess the terrible drive makes for small crowds which is great.

Great hike, lots of beautiful scenery!

What a great hike! I love this hike. the hard part is the very beginning with the steep incline for roughly 3/4's of a mile. Soon after is the first beautiful waterfall. There's a lot to see with it having beautiful views of the Gorge and the falls. There are also spots up the creek of the second waterfall that is beautiful.

Multiple cool waterfalls wrapped up in one nice hike, culminating in Triple Falls for the grand finale! I look forward to going back earlier in the season when the water is flowing even better.

DO THIS HIKE YOU WON'T REGRET IT! It has beautiful waterfalls and everything is so green and wonderful. It was a little slippery on some of the rocks/paths but not too terrible. There are a lot of people at the bottom where Multnomah Falls is but once you get up past the switchbacks the trails weren't too crowded. Definitely a must-do hike if visiting Portland. The Columbia Gorge Shuttle service from Gateway station was $5/person and was super easy to figure out! Overall a great day.

Basically I got in about 3 or so miles, and the trail disappeared. I risked trying to find the remaining trail, and almost got lost so I turned around.

Sucks because this could have been a good hike. I advise bringing a map and gps. All this app does is record your location, it won't upload once you lost service.

Happy Hiking !
