2. Ponytail Falls
Distance: 1.6 miles out-and-back. Elevation Gain: 360 feet. Beautiful forest and a stunning waterfall.
Ponytail Falls is an easy 0.8 mile hike located in the gorge that begins at Horsetail Falls. After hiking up mild switchbacks, continue to your right at the first trailhead intersection. The path levels out before coming around the mountain and opening up to the waterfall.
This is the easiest waterfall hike in the Oregon Gorge and is accessible all year around. It is also a great spot to begin many of the other hikes in the area.
