A Portland Summer Day Trip With Photos: The Oneonta Gorge & Waterfall Trail
It seems that summer in Portland is quickly coming to an end. Luckily, we discovered The Oneonta Gorge before the temperature began dropping. The Gorge is filled with icy mountain snow water, that you must wade through in order to find yourself at the base of a magnificent waterfall. But first you have to defy death and climb over a ridiculous log jam- all while dodging shivering children, dogs off leases and mindless parents.
So far we have gone two weekends in a row and they have been packed. Now that Kevin is done freelancing at SockEye, hopefully we can go during the week days and avoid the crowds. Who knows how long we will be in Portland and this is strictly a summer trail, so I want to get as many photographs and videos as possible before autumn. So if you are reading this and the weather is still warm, pack a picnic, a change of clothes and hurry scurry down to The Oneonta Gorge for one of Portland’s best (and pretty much free) day trips.
