Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson.

Really fun hike that only takes a few hours, was hoping to gain a little more elevation but still was amazing and will be back to this one.

This app takes you to the campsite .9 mile past the trailhead. This time of year, the river was high and fast, super mossy, green forest!! There was no one else out there today and it was perfect for my dog today!!! Easy trail, a bit slippery today, be safe!!

Awesome hike, pretty easy. I usually do this at least once a month. The view and the pictures you can take up there make this REALLY worth the walk, especially sunrise/sunset.

Parts of it were more challenging than I thought they'd be, loose rock, hand over feet climbing. Definitely wouldn't bring my 9 year old hiking buddy. Actually ran into a bear. Most rewarding hike I've done in this area so far!!

Fun hike. There is a bit of scrambling to get to the top but it is worth the view.

Enjoyed the trail today despite the weather not being the best. Some rocky areas and quite a bit of snow above the 4,000 foot level. The lakes were beautiful and well worth the hike. Lots of additional water in the creek areas, definitely will slow down your progress unless you don't mind wading through. Not a very difficult trail to be honest, I would say moderate is a fair assessment. Would love to do this one again on a clear day where you can see the peaks and surrounding areas


The trailhead on Sandy, OR leads to a deserted road. There is no trail here. Mistook this for Eagle Creek in Cascade Locks

Nice hike, had some scrambling to do because of land slides and trees down.

I like to go to this hike instead my run cardio. Love it :)

Amazing setting and an easy
Hike for kids and older adults! The falls are spectacular and don't forget to be adventurous and climb those few last rocks in order to walk behind the falls and see it from the other side!

Not a real hike (hill walk), very easy, some boardwalks are unstable and need repairs but overall, short and flat. Excellent views. Need a pass to park. Easily accessible during Winter.

This trail receives a lot of bike traffic (uphill and downhill) and is by the highway so you get some road noise. Okay, but there are better trails around.
