Oneonta Gorge Hike, Oregon

Share/Bookmark

Oneonta Gorge is one of the many wonders of the National Scenic Area. It is not accessible by trail. Rather you must walk up the creek bed, over a large and perhaps unstable log jam, through the gorge, and up to your waist in water until you finally see falls. Lower Oneonta Falls probably dropped just under 100ft in a backdrop surrounded by steep vertical-walled cliffs and fronted by clear pools. The water was so clear that I even noticed fish swimming amidst the submerged rocks.

Distance: 3.3 miles (5.3km)
Time: 1:30-2 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Climbing: Hilly
Features: Waterfalls
