Beautiful waterfalls. No official way to cross the river, so you are left to figure out a river crossing on your own. We got advice from some other hikers and did make it across. The exposed cliffs on the loop are crazy awesome! Don't miss...More

A good loop hike to beautiful falls. There is no bridge at the river crossing, but there is a large log to walk on and another acting as a hand rail - we crossed it with our 8-y.o. girl. We were anxious because of what...More

Though the river was high, and there was no man-made way to cross, the hike to the river is beautiful and the river sounds are so soothing. People were crossing the river by tightrope walking various downed trees, but I was with my dog and...More

Due to river raging and no logs easily accessible to other side (and rain in the forecast) we didn't cross the river. Hike was still a nice easy climb with some nice views of the river and awesome view of Mt Hood.

An easy but long hike to the falls. The crossing was no problem. Once there we had fun exploring above and below the falls. Very beautiful!

This is a great walk. It is 3.5 miles of gorgeous views and created wonderful memories. I thought shimming across the log was going to be the challenge of the day. It turned out to be not so bad. In the end, my challenge was...More

Ramona Falls was gorgeous! At the beginning of the hike, you do have to cross the Sandy River by walking across fallen trees since the bridge crossing was out. However, that was a fun adventure in itself. I wouldn't recommend it for young children however,...More

We found the logs "move" or disappear as well. So really depends on time of year, water level, etc.

I think it's fine....If you don't feel comfortable walking on the log then just sit and scoot that's what I did. Probably not good for elderly. Another great hike is Clear Lake 5 miles around lake and walking through lava... More
