This is one of my favorite hikes! Go early in the morning to try and beat the crowds!

Getting up close and personal with the falls was worth the hike - crossing the river on fallen trees was fun. Our views of Mt Hood were cloudy unfortunately, but still an awesome hike with beautiful trees.

I thought most of the trail was good, but nothing spectacular. However, Ramona Falls and the view of Mt. Hood when crossing the Sandy River make it totally worth it. The bridge was washed out in August, but it was pretty easy to find thick, firm trees to cross the river on.

My husband and I did this trail today and we thoroughly enjoyed this entire trail. Lush, with lots of exploration and changing scenery. A great day hike!

Beautiful hike and really easy. It's gradual uphill on the way to the fall and gradual downhill back. Beautiful greenery and waterfall. Just get here early; as the day goes by it starts looking like Multnomah Falls with too many people.

This is an awesome trail but it registered as 7.5 miles for us. The bridge is not in yet so we did spend some time finding a good place to cross the river. The falls is totally worth it and we also had some nice epic views of Mt. Hood. No bugs yet. Still a little snow pack near the falls but very little. We only saw three other couples for the entire hike. The visitor center where you can buy the parking pass was closed but their bathrooms were open. There are no bathroom facilities at the trailhead.

This is a fairly easy hike, ending in one of the most gorgeous waterfalls around. Ramona Falls is absolutely stunning. If you're going in the summer, I would just warn to bring lots of water for you and your dog(s) as the hike doesn't get down to the creek very often, and there are long, dry sections prior to and past the waterfall. The lower half of the loop is a good trail, but the surroundings aren't as nice as the upper half. For this reason, I prefer doing it out-and-back, versus the loop.
