This hand-tinted image is reproduced from a medium sized print sold by Cross & Dimmitt at Vista House during the 1920s and 1930s. In contrast to its neighbor, Oneonta Falls, Horsetail Falls is right next to the Columbia River Historic Highway. The shape of the falls and the rounded rock face over which it flows cause it to resemble a horse's tail. There are actually two waterfalls along the creek. The upper falls, called Upper Horsetail Falls or Ponytail Falls, can be accessed from a footpath.
