Oneonta Gorge is not for everyone, located along the Columbia River Gorge, near the Multnomah Falls. It is very difficult to get to, theres not much hiking but there is alot of climbing. A jungle gym of logs over the water is all you have to get through in order to see the fun waterfall on the other side. The sense of accomplishment and wet pant legs as well as a beautiful view are in store for those who seek out Oneonta Gorge. Read about Photographer, Thomas Chamberlin’s experience below.
I’m not sure why the state of Oregon hasn’t cleared that log jam. I suspect they are waiting for a movie studio to want to shoot back in there bad enough to dynamite the log jam for them. This would be a great place to shoot a movie.The water in the spring is fairly swift and deep. Everything in the bottom pockets of my photography vest got wet. Oneonta Gorge is relative short and there is a waterfall at the end of it. You can see the end of it once over the log jam, though you don’t know it because the waterfall is off to one side a bit.
