Waterfalls - Ramona Falls

back to waterfalls - Mt Hood

Ramona 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. After nearly a mile take the left fork for Ramona Falls (Lost Creek Falls to the right).
  8. One half mile leads to a very large parking area with chemical toilets.
  9. Trail to Ramona Falls first leads to the Sandy River in 1.2 miles. A temporary bridge
    (late spring thru October) aids in the crossing.
  10. A short distance away will be a map of the area. Bear left onto the Ramona Falls Trail,
    later passing thru a wood barrier and many water features before reaching the falls at 2 miles
    (you could take the trail straight up at the map, but it has more rise and fall in elevation).
*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.
