Waterfalls - Lost Creek Falls

back to Waterfalls - Mt. Hood

Lost Creek Falls is on the western flank of Mt. Hood.

Directions:

  1. From Interstate 205 take exit 12 and head east on HWY 212
  2. HWY 212 will eventually meet up with HWY 26. Head east on 26.*
  3. At milepost 42 in Zigzag turn left onto E. Lolo Pass Road
  4. After 4 miles look for a Y intersection. Turn right onto road 1825.
  5. After 0.7 miles bear right at another Y intersection over a bridge
  6. In a half mile bear left onto Ramona Falls Trail #727
  7. A mile and a half from there will be the Lost Creek Campground off to the right.
    Instead, continue onto the gravel road that passes the campground. Road is poorly
    maintained so go slow.
  8. 1.5 mile gravel road ends at the trail for Burnt Lake. There is a fee station nearby.
  9. Trail to Lost Creek Falls is about 2.5 miles. Once treading through several small,
    narrow, shallow creeks along the way you are close to the falls. Look for a left branch
    off the main trail. Sound of water to your left will guide you.
  10. There are no facilities at the trail entrance, but the aforementioned
    campground has picnic tables and vault toilets.
*The temptation would be to go to Exit 19 to get directly onto HWY 26 East (Division Ave.).
This would put you through a lot of lights. Then you would have to turn right
on Burnside to continue on HWY 26. Don't be a glutton for punishment.
