This place is a beautiful place. The trail is excellent. But, unfortunately, there was a major forest fire in the Columbia Gorge this past summer, 2017. As of March, 2018, this falls is not open to the public. In fact, the *only* trail currently open...More
I've hiked most of the gorge including numerous waterfalls - Horsetail is right alongside the highway so no hike is involved - plenty are available though. Right now (early 2018) most Gorge attractions are off limits from the 2017 fire so check the websites to...More

Absolutely beautiful waterfalls. Park right off the the road and walk right up to the falls. You can walk down to the pool of water at the bottom of the falls and sit and enjoy.

The drive on the scenic highway along the Columbia River was great and offered many idyllic stops. This falls was one. A busy place but visited at peak time. Amazing that it is so close to the road!
Beautiful waterfall, right off the parking lot, so you don't have to walk far. Could take a dip if weather is hot. beautiful place to contemplate nature, busy though.
