  • Make sure to hit the .4 mile to the upper falls. You can walk behind the waterfall. Upper falls also called Ponytail Falls. Great views. Stunning waterfall.  more »
  • Running full blast very pretty. Always nice to drive old Columbia River Highway. Very scenic any time of year.  more »

  • From Horsetail Falls, there is a trailhead to Upper Falls (Ponytail). It's just half a mile of slightly steep switchbacks until it opens to a waterfall you can walk behind. The trail is closed beyond this due to landslides. It's a lovely, short, & sweet hike.
  • Only kid friendly for grade school level and above. Narrow rocky trail with steep drop offs. If children are responsible type who listen when you explain the dangers, it is good hike. Pretty steep. But trail stops just past upper Horse Tail Falls. Cannot reach Ponytail Falls at this time.
