Ponytail Falls



Last week, I posted a photo taken from behind this waterfall, Ponytail Falls. From this vantage point you can see the cavern I stood in to take last weeks photo, and the trail continuing up to the right.

Ponytail Falls is located behind the more popular (and more easily accessible) Horsetail Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. I hiked there two weekends ago on my birthday, and feel it is actually more beautiful than it's sister down Horsetail Creek.

  1. One of my favorite Gorge hikes. Did you make it all the way to Triple Falls?

  4. Oh my heavens to megatroy....you hike there. I hope the camera equipment wasn't too heavy to carry there. Lovely, Pony Tail Falls shot. The name suits the falls. I haven't ever been there. I wished I had been. Now, I'm 70 years old. Not so sure I could hike that now. Perhaps.

  6. Now obvious from your photo why the falls are called 'Ponytail falls'.
