Horsetail Falls to Multnomah Falls Car Shuttle

  • Mar 31, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

TOTAL MILES: ~10.5 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: 2750 ft
PACE: “Quick” (~2.5 mph)
DIFFICULTY RATING: Difficult
ESTIMATED HIKING TIME: 7 hours
PERMITS: None Needed
***RSVPs will open at 9:30 tonight***


CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 50 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $5.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!

Sunday's forecast looks pretty good, and I want to end my spring break the same way that it started- with a hike!!

We'll set up a car shuttle between Horsetail and Multnomah Falls. Here's the short, short list of highlights that we'll pass as we make our way up Oneonta Creek, over Franklin Ridge, and back down Multnomah Creek: Horsetail Falls, Ponytail Falls, Oneonta Creek, Triple Falls, Ecola Falls, Weisendanger Falls, Multnomah Falls, and probably some other cool stuff that I can't recall at this time

Not much in the way of wildcards on this one.

Please note that there is a MANUAL waiting list for this hike. What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone on the waiting list will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.

NO DOGS, please.

What to bring:
• Sturdy hiking boots/shoes with at least one change of socks
• Two or three light layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!)
• Rain gear
• Safety whistle, preferably on a cord around your neck (highly recommended)
• The 10 essentials*
• Trekking poles (never a bad idea)
• Lunch, snacks and plenty of water

*Navigation, Sun protection, Insulation, Illumination, First Aid, Fire, Repair Kit/Tools, Nutrition, Hydration, Emergency Shelter. For a more detailed description, check out “The Ten Essentials” on the Portland Hiking Meetup Group’s FILES page.

    You're welcome Zachary. I already shared the one of Brad & Saint to my facebook with my Climb For Clean Air online donation page link.... (like this: http://action.lung.org/site/TR/Climb/ALAMP_Mountain_Pacific?px=5072583&pg=personal&fr_id=6740 )
    Saying that if the dog could climb to the top of Mt. Adams so could I & won't you help? What I'd really like to repost though, ahem, is one of those pictures with Mt. Adams visible in the background. I may have to do some more hinting and groveling for that though. ?

    I added some of the photos I took before my camera battery died and no they're all of me -everyone else is in there at least once. Take a look then add yours please.

    I needed to do a conditioning hike, at 11+miles this was perfect. Couldn't ask for better weather. I'm so glad I was outside today. Nice people made for a good group.

    is this a difficulty, fast pace hike ? since I'm a newbie schould I wait.... this is my first meetup ! not sure

    March 29, 2013

    • Zachary

      The difficulty comes from the steady climb and the 10+ miles, but there are several built in stops on the way up (and down). As long as you're in decent shape you should do fine.
