did this trail in the middle of the summer and it was fun! wish we would have planned our time better to do the longer hike to crater rock. this was the most uphill hike I think I've ever done, but we're from the mid Atlantic and we don't have anything like this around us!

I love this trail so much. we did Mirror Lake the first time we visited Oregon (from MD), but decided not to do TDH because we didnt have enough time. We came back out a few months later in July with our time better planned and for me this hike was the highlight of our trip. The scenery is gorgeous the entire hike and the view at the top is perfect. I enjoyed the little bit of scrambling at the top and we did the little ridge scramble as well which was terrifying but ultimately worth the view and the privacy because there were a surprising amount of people at the top when we arrived. we ended up finding a little dug out spot of rocks on the main area and set up our backpacking stove and made lunch before we hiked back down. I cant wait to do this trail again one day!

Some snow, some mud, some slick spots but overall very pretty path that follows along the river. Tons of little waterfalls to cross made it a fun hike.

This was done as a winter overnight snowshoeing hike with a group of 7, all wearing snowshoes and we hauled 2 sleds. We left the Frog Lake Snopark parking lot and we picked up the PCT just to the left of the restrooms. The trail was easy to follow and in very good condition. You could probably hike this in good boots and gaiters, but it would be a tough slog. We sunk in several places, regardless of the snowshoes. It took about and hour and a half to get to Lower Twin Lakes, there are many spots to camp here and it's a great place to hang out and have a snack or lunch. The lake was frozen solid and covered with at least 2ft of snow. The hike to Upper Twin Lakes took us about an hour, there is a good deal of climbing and several sharp switch backs. Again the trail was excellent, but soft snow and steep edges were everywhere. We camped on the near side of Upper Twin Lakes, there was 3+ feet of snow on the ground and our group built a 3 person snow cave easily. 3 people slept on the snow cave and 4 in tents. Beware the birds and the rodents. Even though it was snowing and cold our food bags were attacked by crows, Gray Jays and mice. The night was cold and wet, but we did great. We hauled in a decent amount of firewood in our sleds and had a great evening. We awoke to blue sky and sunshine, but around mid morning clouds and snow appeared. The snow here was mostly undisturbed and snowshoes were appreciated. The hike out was much lighter and quicker, about 2 hours back to the snopark parking lot. The trail was crowded with day trippers. I would recommend this hike to everyone, it's a great deal of fun all year round.

About ½ mile above the second single log bridge crossing it turns to snow for the rest of the way up the mountain. Current condition is 2-star but will be wonderful in Spring.

Unfortunatly the weather did not cooperate with us and the visibilty was poor, but i can tell it would be amazing on a clear day. Ill have to do it again.

Lots of heavy and wet snow, might have been fine with just microspikes but we opted for snowshoes. Spent the night in the lookout, highly highly recommend it! Beautiful views and great facilities. Snowmobilers repeatedly climbed the lookout and tried coming in, there should probably be a sign that says it’s reserved or something along those lines. Otherwise we had a blast and can’t wait to explore other lookouts!

Did this hike last summer. It was easily one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve been on. The trail was well maintained. It gets pretty steep, especially towards the end, so use caution. Super pretty and I would definitely do this again.

I didn’t use snowshoes on the trail up to either lake, the trail is very well compacted and at least 2ft wife. When you come to the first lake definitely go off this trail to view it. It’s completely frozen over and you’re able to walk on it. On the loop back after you pass both lakes I ended up putting on my snowshoes because I’d sink like every couple feet, but doable if you don’t have snowshoes if you’re determined. Both lakes were beautiful and frozen. The higher one had less people and the lower one had campsites that you could eat lunch at or stay overnight if you’d like. The incline is very gradual throughout the trail. Would highly recommend. Roads coming up were completely clear

First “50” mile hike I’ve done it was really hard but the view and experience was amazing. The map was difficult to follow but me and my buddy did really well on staying safe. If you are hammock camping just keep looking for spots and yes it is very scary hammocking on dead trees!

Great trail for all levels of snowshoer. Several loop options. We only went to Lower Lake, walked around it, and retuned. Most people were wearing snowshoes, but a few were just in hiking boots. Trail is packed down enough to make it hikeable without snowshoes but be careful stepping off trail.

I've been dying to see how the Wallowas have fared after these last few weeks of snowfall. I saw one clear day forecasted and jumped. The drive from the Trip-Cities to Wallowa Lake was absolutely stunning if only a little bit hairy due to all of the snow in the mountain pass. I could hardly believe my luck when I arrived at the lake and saw the blue water framed by those dramatic and snowy peaks, and sun! There were only a few cars parked at the Wallowa Lake trailhead, but it was later in the morning at that point so some folks had already broken trail for me. I snowshoed several miles up to the junction to Ice Lake and a little bit beyond to the wooden bridge crossing. The snow became too soft and deep here, and my snowshoes were sinking down a few feet with every step. The bridge also looked a bit treacherous (I could hardly see it under all that snow!) and I decided to turn back towards the trailhead. If I had more time I may have attempted the bridge and further, but these short winter days make daylight adventuring a little more difficult! I took my dog on this trek and she had a blast bounding through the deepest, fluffiest snow she could find. All in all a pretty fantastic day - the river was especially beautiful and I can't wait to try this again this winter. Enjoy the Wallowas while it's still a bit of the hidden gem that it is!

Lot of snow, but still doable. Make sure you stay on the trail. Bring extra jackets for the top.

Hiked this one over 3 days with friends in early October. We arranged a shuttle service that picked up our car at Grave Creek and dropped it at Foster Bar. We had the trail pretty much to ourselves. The trail started with a bit of up and down in the first 10 miles, but in all was relatively mild. Camp sites can be sparse if not a marked camping area since the entire trail is pretty much steep hillside. The camps we chose were somewhat developed with bear fences and hoists. Definitely more bear activity the further west we went. Lots of poison oak but using awareness and caution can be avoided. There are some areas of the trail that track along steep, nearly vertical banks but none of it particularly unnerving since the trail is pretty well developed.

Love this trail. Hiked most of it before turning around (I promised my wife I’d be back for lunch). Lots of mud and slush at the beginning but turns to deep snow 1/2 way up. Snowshoes are a must for the higher elevations !

I started this trail from the Conference area at 4:00am so for about 3.5 hrs. it was dark. Some parts of the trail were hard to piece together when doing the whole 21.1 mile loop. I went when it was nasty out; Windy, rainy, cold... It snowed on the higher elevations and a lot of the Trail had 6” or more water on it. A lot of the rain water was pooling or running down parts of the Trail. Parts of Buck Mtn. Loop and enough mud to eat your whole shoe. But it was still FUN! From the Conference area I started the trail just past the Dining Hall. Go across the bridge and up the ‘T’. I went RIGHT following the Equestrian Loop (what I thought was ‘Cut Off Trail’). on their maps the was called ‘Old Maple Trail’. When I got to the next ‘T’ to ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ I went LEFT (this is where I made my only wrong turn, I should of went right). I followed the signs (which were easy to follow even in the dark). Took ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ to ‘Perimeter Trail’ to ‘Canyon Trail’. From here just follow all the signs. Be sure to stop by all the Waterfalls and take in the views. Follow ‘Canyon Trail’ past South Falls to the Park Area. From here (I ran around for like 15min trying to find the connection) you take the ‘Bike Path’ which connects you to the Campground. Go through the campground (I know, it was hard to connect them, there were no real directions) to the road. To the LEFT there is a sign across the street with an arrow for ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ but the trail head has no real sign (had to ask a Park Ranger for directions) before you get to the ‘T’ in the road the ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ starts to the right. It crosses the road and continues, it follows the road for a bit the head back into the forest. You run to a cross trail, keep going straight. You run partly up a Fire Road to another ‘T’. Go LEFT then you follow the signs (I took ‘Howard Creek Trail’ back) to go back to the Conference area. My GPS was off on the mileage, probably cause I missed that first turn. * Parking Fee. * GPS works. (Verizon & AT&T only) * Depending where on the trail, there are toilets.

It’s a nice easy trail. Fairly well maintained and normally highly trafficked but it was raining all day when we went and we only ran into a few other people. With the rain most of the trail is wet and muddy with standing water. There is also a few trees down and medium size branches narrowing but not blocking the trail. Multiple off lead and aggressive dogs were on the trail today. And I’ve run into some previously. I’d recommend carrying bear spray, mace, or a baton as it’s narrow in some areas and unfortunately extremely popular with people who can’t control their dogs.
