a gorgeous hike.
Easy trail, even in the rainy season.
Uphill the whole way but it's with it!! I went counter clockwise and had to stop quite a few times. The falls and the surrounding forest are beautiful !
Going clockwise is definitely the way to go. Less intense uphill. Great 5 mile hike.
Nice trail. 2 hours and 5 miles round trip at moderate pace. Head clockwise from the upper trailhead to avoid the more intense uphill.
Rather crowded trail. Steep narrow upper part of the loop crossed several downhill skiing runs. The other half of the loop was much nicer. Sahale falls rather unremarkable.
Easy hike with a waterfall and great views of the summit of Mt. Hood.
It was fantastic! Great variety the falls is beautiful
We went the end of July and there were amazing amounts of wildflowers. There was so much to see along the way!
Gorgeous! Umbrella Falls was even more beautiful -and bigger- than I expected. From the Elk Meadows TH we ventured up through snag-filled woods and meadows of wildflowers and crisscrossing streams. We were treated to views of the valley below and Mt Hood above. Even passing under the chair lifts was interesting. The view of the mountain and river at the top of the waterfall was worth the scramble. Due to time constraints, we did an out and back then drove to the old highway bridge just a short distance away to view lovely Sahale Falls.
