We love this hike. I would recommend going early in the day on weekends. The views from the top are magnificent.

the trail was really nice and our dogs loved it ! wide path !

I e only ever done the very short part of this hike where we loop back after the suspension bridge but this time we decided to go right and continue on. I looked at the map and I saw where we could stay in the Lava Canyon trail by keeping left at the bridge. Once we hit SCOTT trail we took a little break over looking the river. We decided to go down SCOTT trail u til it met up with the upper part of Lava Canyon trail. It is t marked but you can see the trail to the left. Also I knew it was only .3 of a mile. They really should put signage there. The upper trail is all up! Looks like an old Forrest access road overgrown. But we had to take a couple short breaks to rest. It’s over 3 miles up. I believe we climbed about 1204 feet. I could definitely say no dogs past the suspension bridge and this is definitely rated HARD in my book. Scary at times. I am glad I did it.

fun 8 mile hike with gorgeous views at the top. definitely take the time to climb up the first rocky outcropping before the boulder field for a preview of the views to come! the boulder field looks daunting but the trail is fairly clear once you get going.

Definitely longer than 7 mile. This hike is a bit over 8 miles. Also when you are on the trail and encounter the first rock slide, don’t deviate left and up as you will be going the wrong way. Stay right and you will be fine.

My brother & I hiked this trail and it was yet another GREAT and WORTHY hike for sure.
There are some pretty AWESOME views on the way to the ASTOUNDING looking waterfall and is also a very good hike because the journey back has different views and is a different cool trail because it's a loop hike.

P.S. There are some GNARLY potholes on the way to the parking spot but as long as your aware of how and where your driving even a compact car like mine is able to make it without damaging your vehicle.

Nice walk along mostly gravel path.

Beautiful hike and fairly easy. Ramona falls is gorgeous and a lot bigger that expected. Highly recommended.

Awesome experience! I’ve never done a subterranean hike and this was absolutely amazing. It wasn’t too crowded today. I went al the way back on the lower trail until I belly crawled to a point where my brain said enough! I did a small portion of the upper trail as I soon realized my knee injury didn’t approve. I will return and finish that tho. Again. Amazing! But please please please bring a headlamp or flashlight. Saw a few iPhone users and it just didn’t cut it.

Very picturesque and mild hike. The elevation climb was gradual that it felt very easy. It was an overcast day so we kept a good pace. The river crossing was easy since the water was low. The falls were smaller than I imagined but still quite beautiful.

This was a beautiful hike! As others have stated, my only complaint is that you could see the road most of the time. Everything else was so beautiful that it didn’t really bother me. I definitely recommend going during the beginning of fall because it’s so beautiful when the leaves are starting to change and fog is dwelling around the trees. The waterfall was much bigger than I expected. Not very trafficked - even for a Saturday. We hung out at the waterfall for a good 30-45 min before people arrived.

I’ve done this twice now. It’s a pretty trail no matter what time of year. WALK ON THE GRAVEL ROAD UNTIL YOU SEE A BRIDGE TO THE RIGHT. I see many people getting lost on the off spurt trails. Dog friendly, not a hard trail either. The gravel road is more tiring than the actual trail. Lots of cool history as well.

so worth it

Fun hike this summer. The fall's were worth it. Just remember to get your trail use permit. I didn't know the US Forest Service was requiring them and got a $5 warning ticket!

Did this hike 6 week postpartum. It was very challenging as I wasn’t in great shape yet, but was very doable. I definitely recommend! Go early! Wear sunscreen and don’t forget water! Very rewarding views. Lots of going up and but going down is challenging too with loose spots. Take your time!

A great hike with amazing views. It was a bit cloudy but when it cleared it was worth the hike!

Absolutely beautiful!

Kids had a blast. My kids are younger so we stuck with the lower caves. But, I would love to come back at some point for the upper section. Definitely worth while for everyone to explore. Bring good lights and back ups.

Beautiful views of the gorge! Great food in Hood River after!

First, the map is wrong but the road to the trail head is clearly marked so just follow the signs!!
This is an amazing hike! Leaves are starting to turn and there are fantastic colors. A definite must!!

Only did half of this (footbridge to summit & back) due to time, but a threat hike! Not for the inexperienced or out of shape. Will come back to finish this this and other again soon.

You can just go rogue in the caves with a headlamp it was absolutely sick

Great Trail.. loved the waterfalls..

Doing controlled burn tomorrow so trail is filled with firemen and hoses

great hike

I did this Hike today, very beautiful hike. The trail head is easy to get to. The trail head and trail are well maintained. You get a perfect view of Mt. Hood when you reach the summit.

A long but very easy doable hike. I definitely suggest completing the loop, because the way back is a lot prettier and more exciting IMO. Use caution when crossing the river, there was a decent log for crossing, but water was flowing too hard to walk through. Use discretion about bringing your dog(s)! With no bridge they either have to walk through the river or cross a log, which the water was too fierce for the poor Shepherd I saw be forced across by his owner, and was very scared. The stream is lower and less fierce when it hasn’t been raining as well as earlier in the AM. A beautiful waterfall and peaceful place to sit and enjoy. Definitely a great hike for a cloudy day when Mt Hood isn’t visible or anyway!

This hike is one of my all-time favorites. It is especially beautiful to hike in late September or early October. The fall colors are breathtaking. The terrain continually changes and keeps things interesting. So very important to wear supportive hiking shoes as you traverse rocky creek beds. This is a remote hike and we only passed by one other couple. Our dog ran off leash the entire time. The lakes are beautiful, quiet and so peaceful. I will hike this hike every fall!
