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


  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.
