Photographer's Note

My daughter Kalina and I took advantage of the break in the rain to hike up to Triple Falls, in the Columbia River Gorge, waterfall area. We did the hike in the morning about 10:30 and ended up at 12:30 and then went shopping. We saw very a few people on the trail, some you can see standing on the bridge in the background which was our destination point before turning around to follow the trail back.

Triple Falls is the jewel of Oneonta Gorge. It is an incredibly beautiful segmented waterfall, as three falls plunge over a cliff on Oneonta Creek. The Oneonta Trail takes you to a scenic overlook above the waterfall in about 1.4 miles. The trail then continues a short distance to a bridge at the top of the waterfall, but the best view is from the overlook.

It's a 2.8 mile loop trail spanning the Oneonta Gorge. One difference from the last time I'd hiked this trail was the number of fallen trees, some of these you can see at the lower right of the falls, they look like small sticks, but are full size logs leaning against the sides of the rocky gorge.
