Tamanawas Falls Oregon

Tamanawas Falls Mt. Hood National Forest Oregon

Tamanawas Falls forms a broad curtain where Cold Spring Creek thunders over a 150’ lava cliff near the eastern base of Mount Hood. This hike along scenic Cold Spring Creek to the falls has been a traditional trek for families and is especially scenic in autumn, when cottonwood, Douglas and vine maple and western larch light up the forest in reds and golds. Tamanawas is Chinook Jargon for "spirit" or "spiritual guidance".
