We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

The Bald Mountain Trail starts near a group campsite located on the Muddy Fork. The trail crosses the Muddy Fork via a foot bridge. Small streams cross the trail at 0.7 and 1.2 miles. The trail then switchbacks up the timbered slop until the junction with the Pacific Crest National Scenic (PCNST) and Timberline Trails. Although the temptation is great, please stay on the trail and do not shortcut the switchbacks as it causes erosion and trail maintenance problems.

To make a loop, turn south on the PCNST at the four-way junction at Bald Mountain. Follow it 4.9 miles to Ramona Falls. Return to the starting point in just over two miles by following either portion of the Ramona Falls Loop Trail. In addition to the beauty of Ramona Falls, this 11 mile loop offers unique close-up views of Mount Hood’s west side. A more leisurely version of this loop can be made by switching the described direction and traveling up the Ramona Loop to the PCNST and down the Bald Mountain Trail.
