Overview

This is a moderate loop trail to Tamanawas Falls in Mount Hood National Forest. The route combines the Tamawanas, Tamawanas Tie, Elk Meadow and East Fork trails to make a loop with a quarter-mile out and back to Tamawanas Falls. The highlight of the hike is along Cold Spring Creek to the falls. The East Fork trail parallels highway 26 and so is loud.

Getting Started

This hike can be started at either the Polallie trailhead or Tamanawas Falls trailhead.

The Tamanawas Falls Trailhead is 25 miles south of Hood River on Highway 35. Parking is in a large gravel pullout along the west shoulder of Highway 35. There are picnic tables and a bathroom, open during the summer.
