Trail Description Driving Directions
Trail Alert, Nov 15, 2017: Trail closed due to Eagle Creek fire that started on Sept. 2. We anticipate this trail will be closed at least until summer 2018.
Start at the Oneonta Trailhead, as it parallels the old highway. Switchback and gain a couple hundred feet until the trail flattens out, coming to a junction with Horsetail Falls Trail (#438). Take a short jaunt down the Horsetail Falls Trail to see Middle Oneonta Falls and the first Oneonta Creek Bridge. After returning back on the Oneonta Trail (#424), climb to a pair of switchbacks as it traverses high above Middle Oneonta Falls (also known as Upper Oneonta Falls). Find a short, steep, and rocky path down to the falls from the main trail, just below the switchbacks.
For a longer hike, continue on the Oneonta Trail above the falls another 6.5 miles to Larch Mountain.
