This trail and loop around back to the top of Multnomah falls is open and is in pretty good condition as of earlier this week! Some burn but the falls are still amazing.

It’s definitely open now, and it was just lovely to hike again. Highly recommend!

Trail Is Still Closed At This Time. The Historic Columbia River Highway is Closed Until Further Notice. This Includes Trails Between Bridal Veil Falls and Multnomah, and Trails Between Multnomah and Ainsworth State Park. The Road Is Only Open To State Troopers, Game and WildLife Patrolmen, and Residents That Live On That Road. Anyone Caught Trying To Hike Said Trails Are Fined. This Is All Due To The Bad Fire They Had Last Year And Several Told Me They Aren't Sure When It Should Be Open. One Trooper Told Me It's Looking Like It Will Be June 2019. :( That Means Oneonta George, Oneonta Falls, Horsetail Falls, Ponytail Falls, Larch Mountain Overlook, Fairy Falls, & Wahkeena Falls Are All Closed Until Further Notice. If You Are Looking For Alternatives, You Can Look Into Multnomah Falls & Trails, Latourell Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Vista House. You Can Also Take A Drive To Ramona Falls.

Challenging little hike, lots of elevation gain in a short amount of time, (was a gorgeous trail), unknown what it looks like now after the fire this past September. Not even sure when it will be open again, :( You get to see two very nice waterfalls though if & when it ever does open up again!
