Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson.

Crowded, but beautiful.

Very short but beautiful. Good connector trail to PCT and Timothy Lake loop

Wow this one kicked my butt! Hot day super sunny and lots of incline. Very nice refreshing water fall. The down loop is much nicer and I now see a way to go up that way and skip the gravel and uneasy up hill parts. Turn left at the first sign showing pacific trail left Ramona falls straight

Quiet with spectacular views. Not much traffic during the week. One of my favorite.

Great hike !! Awesome views !! I wouldn't grade this hike as hard though more like moderate . Went past horsetail falls by about a mile and a half . Total hike for us was about 8 miles . Try and be there before 8 on the weekends Or you'll get stuck behind all the yahoos !! Oh and whatever you do , do not drive by Multnomah falls it'll take you a hour to get by all the crazies !!

great hike. careful, the rocks get slick when it rains
