This is a low impact hike that shouldn’t take more than 2 hours to complete, including about 30 minutes for a picnic. Total loop distance is 2.3 miles. Other than a good pair of shoes, water and snacks, there is no need for any specialty gear.
Halfway through the hike (about 1.5 miles), we will stop near the Lower Oneonta Falls to have a brief picnic. Bring your own food & beverage.
Be ready to hang out with the guys and have fun. We estimate about 3 to 4 hours including driving time from NE Portland.
Meet us on the parking lot near the Horsetail Falls. We will meet by trail entrance located on the eastside of the parking at 10:50 am. The ascent will start at 11:00 am sharp.
Driving Directions: From I-84, take Exit #35/Ainsworth and head west on the Historic Columbia River Highway for approximately 2 miles.
Let’s meet at the Carl’s Jr parking lot, located on the NE corner of 102nd and Halsey St. (only a block away from Gateway Transit Center). Departure from this location must be no later than 10:00 am, so we can make it on time to the falls.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Arrange with other guy(s) if you need a ride. Please don’t show up without ride arrangements, as there might not be room left in other cars.
If you have room in your car and want to take other guys with you, please post it on the comments section below so other guys can contact you.
