Triple Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Triple Falls in the summer (Tom Kloster)
Triple Falls from above (Steve Hart)



A landslide in late 2014 has blocked access to Triple Falls. As of February 21, 2015 trail 424 is closed at the junction with the Horsetail Falls trail #438. Check here for updates and post here when you notice that the falls are accessible again so that we can update the field guide! The Oneonta & Horsetail Falls loop is unaffected and still completely accessible. You can still access Triple Falls from the south, but you will need to backtrack uphill as the landslide area after the falls is dangerous to pass.


Triple Falls is the 4th waterfall on Oneonta Creek. Impossible to miss, the viewpoint is only 5' from the Oneonta Trail. On the down side, there are very few places to see the waterfall from, so you're likely to see this angle from a lot of photographers.
