Ramona Falls is on the western flank of Mt. Hood.


  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.
