Waterfall Wednesday in Oregon – Horsetail Falls

With winter and spring come winter storms and snow pack melt, supplying Oregon scenic rivers the water needed to create our wildly beautiful and renowned waterfalls.

And it’s certainly not too early to start planning your Oregon vacation that should involve chasing waterfalls. Our Oregon Trail of Waterfalls Map was created with your planning in mind. We’ve included where to stay, things to do in Oregon, where to eat and of course, where to find some of the very best Oregon Waterfalls.

Horsetail Falls – one of the Columbia River Highway Waterfalls, #14 on the Oregon Trail of Waterfalls Map

Named for its characteristic form, Horsetail Falls plunges 176 feet within view of the Historic Columbia River Highway’s “Waterfall Corridor.” Just east of the falls is a great picnic spot to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area and watch the passing freight trains.
