We spent the previous night at the Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood. It took us 30 minutes to reach the trailhead and, because it was just after 9am when we arrived, there was ample parking and hardly anyone else on the trail. Our goal was...More

Loved the hike although the first half of the forest is a little less “forest” and more like sparse aged woods, after the river crossing the forest is much healthier and gorgeous. This IS NOT a hike for elderly or small kids 10 and below...More

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
