Along the Historic Columbia River highway, there’s a waterfall that doesn’t see a lot of traffic. The Oneonta Falls is behind large rocks and logjams, so it takes someone willing to go in waist deep water. And probably someone without super expensive and fragile camera equipment. While we won’t clamber over rocks and logs, there’s plenty of landscape and details to keep me happy.
Tunnel and bridge
In the limited parking area, the bridge and tunnel are pretty cool. Note that the tunnel is currently closed due to the human caused wildfire in late 2017 (the wood interior burned up).
I’m looking forward to going back when they’ve opened up the tunnel again. I didn’t get a chance to visit Oneonta Gorge while we were in the Portland area in 2019.
