East of Portland and southwest of Cascade Locks in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, the Oneonta Gorge Trail (#424) is a scenic trek up a narrow, mossy, fern covered gorge. Starting from the Columbia River Scenic Highway, you can either hike right up the gorge on a slippery, but scenic, route that will definitely get your feet wet, or you can bypass the most scenic section and take the trail starting alittle further west and connect up with the upper section of the gorge. The upper section of the gorge passes Oneonta Falls and Triple Falls. The trail eventually leads up to Larch Mountain.

Overall, Oneonta Gorge Trail is the 18th most popular hiking trail of all 21 hikes in Oregon. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Oneonta Gorge Trail including Eagle Creek Trail and Gorge Trail.
