COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, Ore. — A hiker died after falling near the Oneonta Trail in the Columbia River Gorge.

On Sunday, May 19, 2024, at about 4:20 p.m., Multnomah County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call that a hiker had fallen from a cliff west of the Horsetail Falls trailhead. When deputies arrived, another hiker was performing CPR. Cascade Locks Fire & EMS personnel arrived and pronounced the hiker dead at approximately 4:35 p.m.

The hiker is 22-year-old Elisha Angelic Macias, of Hillsboro, Oregon.
