    This trail leads you to two wonderful destinations. Ramona Falls is a very unusual water fall. The rock wall slopes out at the base making water cascade from one ledge to the next. The setting is in a dark open forest. Yocum Ridge is very spectacular. The entire hike is in the forest until the very end when you step out of the tree line and see the rock face of Mount Hood from a beautiful meadow. There are shear cliffs between you and the mountain and you can see waterfalls and glaciers in the distance. The author has an error on the map and directions for this hike. When you turn on to Forest Road 100, it is .5 miles to the trail head, not 1.6 miles. Perhaps the road went further at one time. That makes the hike about 18 miles round trip including both sides of the Ramona Trail loop. Even though there is a large elevation gain, the trail is not steep. It just goes up with every step. I completed the hike in a day and it was very enjoyable. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the 5 mile walk up the Yokum ridge section of trail is not terribly interesting. There are a couple of small ponds along the way that are pretty though. I saw a few hikers on the Ramona loop trail but no one had been up Yokum Ridge in at least a week (I had to hold a branch in front of me for several miles to block the hundreds of spider webs).
