This is a quintessential western Gorge hike – 3 sparkling waterfalls, several outstanding Gorge views, and one unique Oneonta Gorge slot canyon all packed into one. Check out my  first adventure with the modern hippie. Triple falls hike.

The hike to Triple Falls can’t make up its mind if it wants to be steep or flat. Starting from the Oneonta Trailhead, it parallels the old highway, then suddenly switches back and gains a couple of hundred feet. Then it’s flat, even downhill a bit, passing the junction where the Horsetail Falls Trail#438 heads downhill to the Middle Oneonta Falls and the 1st Oneonta Creek Bridge. From here, the trail climbs to a pair of switchbacks as it traverses high above Oneonta Falls, also known as Upper Oneonta Falls. A short path angles down to the falls from the main trail, just below the switchbacks. The main trail meanders along the side of a ridge, staying well above the creek. There’s a segment of abandoned trail at a blind curve and when you come around the corner Triple Falls is in full view and it’s obviously breathtaking.

Type of Hike: Out And Back
Length: 5 Miles
Elevation Gain: 740 Feet
Difficulty: Moderate
