Beautiful but ecologically frail waterfall on 10-mile hike through Mt. Hood National Forest. Like white lace, 120-foot Ramona Falls drapes across a stair-stepped cliff of columnar basalt. The very popular trail to the shady grotto of this Mount Hood cascade starts out in a mossy alder forest beside the Sandy River's bouldery outwash plain. A loop trail to the falls follows a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail. Environmental stewardship strongly encouraged on this hike!
