I snowshoed this trail in march and it was so fun! Flat, and accessible. Some were mountain biking it.

Great trail. I want to go back in the winter or spring.

I'm sure this would have been a lovely hike, however, make sure you don't bring dogs or young kids. I went on 11/3/18 and the river water was rushing badly enough that we couldn't figure out a safe way to cross with dogs. We went up and down the river as far as we could find but there wasn't any where with a log large enough for a big dog to cross comfortably. Perhaps if we had harnesses on the dogs and could have them walk across with some help with the leash? We ended up turning around after my friend's border collie tried leaping off the log a foot in. I did see two sets of families with two big dogs each and I wish I had asked them how they got across. Overall, I'm willing to take risks but I'd skip this until Summer if you've got a dog large enough that you can't carry them.

Absolutely worth the hike, arrived just after 8 am on a Sunday and had the trail to ourselves. Definitely not kid or big dog friendly unless they can cross the log in the river. Round trip took about 3 hours and that’s with stopping up by the falls to refuel & enjoy the view.

Day couldn’t have been much better (unless it was sunny, twenty degrees warmer, and no other people...). I’d be inclined to reconsider this as moderate, or at least at the lower end. It’s thoroughly enjoyable, and the loop to follow the stream downward, to me, is absolutely worth it.

Last time I did this was a year and a half ago during a heat streak. Both times of year offer something different and wonderful.

This a great hike for all levels. I would call the loop “easy” for hikers considering you go by at least 10 waterfalls, if not more counting the little ones. This is a must do hike!

This was a great beautiful and easy hike! We had planned on making the loop bigger and checking out the views of Bald Mt. too, but my my partner was getting sick and not up for 13 miles! I’d do this hike again in a heartbeat!!

We hiked the first half and saw 3 or 4 falls. We hiked out and back to same way. I carried our small dog in a carrier. We loved it!

the waterfall is a great spot to stop for a snack, the river crossing was easy once we figured out where it was. gorgeous views of mt hood!

optional scramble gives you a beautiful view. good work out. obviously lots of scars from the burn but still very worth it. booty burner.

I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with this hike. The most effort that I had to put into it was getting parking. The waterfall was at the beginning and you didn't have to walk far from the parking lot to see it. There were mountain bikers everywhere and at time made it difficult to get past them on the narrow parts of the trail. They were even in areas the the signs said they weren't allowed. This made it hard to enjoy the trail. As beautiful as the waterfall was, I prefer to work to get to it, not walk 1 minute from where I parked.

Awesome and beautiful but super easy hike! Very popular spot but still worth an afternoon trip.

Beautiful hike! Could be a bit challenging for those not wanting to walk on a log to cross a small stream but aside from that the hike was flawless. A must when visiting Mt. Hood.

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.

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

Beautiful trail many small waterfalls.

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.

Wonderful trail! 7miles out and back. Pretty easy hike, mostly flat the entire time. Dogs loved it as well! You follow the river for majority of the hike with beautiful views of the river and mountains. People also mountain bike on this trail. You can also just drive to the falls by following the road to the every end. (Lost of cars parked there) The falls were amazing!! Breath taking!! You can get very close to them and potentially even underneath them, but we did not try. We did the hike the first week of October:) highly recommend!

Great hike. Beautiful views. Small water crossing (plenty of rocks to jump on). Colors were changing so it was really beautiful.

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!

Beautiful waterfalls and an easy hike to see all of them. This one I ranked lower only because it gets pretty congested with many other hikers and dodging the bikes get challenging. Road to trailhead is gravel but no problems navigating around the occasional pothole. Parking is a problem if you don’t get there early.

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

Took about 2 hrs 45 min going a moderate pace. First half of trail has several waterfalls and is shaded. Second half is mostly sunny and away from the water. Dogs are also not allowed on the second half which is why many recommend doing this as out and back. There are a couple places where you cross the river on logs. Overall an a great hike with gradual elevation gain, most of the trail is pretty flat after the initial ascent. I recorded it as 7.7 miles not 6.9 as app indicates.

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.

Tricky to find the point, but really cool once you get there. The scramble up to the actual point is a little sketchy, but not too difficult. To get to the point you have to go down an unmarked foot path. We almost missed it and continued on to deadwood. Close one!

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!

The trail was great and beautiful, but I should have heeded the warning about the bad road. My '06 Dodge Charger, low to the ground, hit a huge pot hole that cracked my coolant tank and the return trip to Portland was less than fun with overheating and pulling over until Fred Meyer in Gresham. Low cars, be careful!

Nice! Great little fall hike.
