Waterfalls - Tamanawas Falls

back to waterfalls - Mt Hood

Tamanawas Falls is on the eastern flank of Mt. Hood.
It is quite misty. You can feel its mist from about 50 feet away.

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. Past Government Camp exit HWY 26 and head north on HWY 35.
  4. Near milepost 72 (past Sherwood Campground) look for a wide spot on the
    west side of the road. This is the entry point for the E. Fork Trailhead.
  5. Cross a footbridge and follow the path to Tamanawas Falls.
  6. Trail is about 2 miles in length and has very bouldery sections.
*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.
