July 9, 2012: Visitors taking shots of Ramona Falls under the rustic log bridge


Ramona Falls is, in my opinion, a natural wonder of Oregon. The waterfall has its own unique character that is distinct from other waterfalls. Multiple cascades splashing against vividly green moss-covered rocks along with a rustic log bridge becomes an iconic shot of this world famous waterfall.

Ramona Falls is located in northwest hill of Mt. Hood, about 62 miles (100 km) east of Portland, Oregon. The nearest village is Zigzag, through which visitors get access to the hiking trail to Ramona Falls.

The Ramona Falls hiking trail loop #797 is 7mi/11km round trip, or 3.5mi/5.5km each way. This seasonal trail is moderately-heavily used by hikers, campers, and horseback riders. It’s well signed and maintained. However, the trail is only open from late spring to late autumn, when forest rangers place a hiking bridge across the gushing Sandy River. The hiking bridge is removed at other time of the year. After reaching the falls, visitors can hike down to the base of Ramona Falls and stand under it. Alternatively, stand on the log bridge for the signature shot.
