Hiked this in early December, it was beautiful and my first time up! Definitely bring lots of clothing layers and good hiking shoes, it was very slick and icy in some spots.

Best mountain in Oregon that I’ve been on.

The hike is a must! Each waterfall is amazing! Easy hike

Did this Dec 9. The vehicle access road to the trailhead parking lot closes for the winter on Dec. 1 so the hike up the road to the trailhead adds 4.5 miles round trip, making this a 12 mile hike. The log crossing was easy as there is a log handrail next to one of the main crossing logs, so even though it’s icy, you can easily hang on and feel safe as long as the water level is low. Could have used yak tracks in a few icy spots but no need for snowshoes right now. Pretty views of Hood and the falls are beautifully iced over in parts. Almost no one out today due to the weather.

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

I did the trail for the first time today and it was a beautiful, though chili hike. The entire trail is snowed in so come prepared. The road itself leading to the trailhead is covered in snow, though lots of exposed ice throughout would make it unsuitable for non AWD vehicles without snow tires. Temperatures hovered around 25°F, with clouds rolling in and out, and occasional cool wind gusts/mild snow fall. This was despite a forecast of clear skies. Overall, the hike is very enjoyable, and I plan on doing it again later this winter.

The hike starts with a pretty steep incline, but after a mile or so it actually gets very pleasant. There was quite some snow on the trail already. The views, especially at the end, are spectacular. We only encountered a few other people. Really enjoyed this hike!

Did it 12/1 and the top had 2-3” of snow. It was incredible. Followed coyote tracks for a while. Fog blew in and out. I actually loved it.

Hiked this today in the later afternoon. It was lightly snowing at the top which made for a cool experience. I didn’t get to see the epic views due to the clouds/snowing but as I hiked back down it cleared out for a beautiful sunset and you could see the ocean.

The parking fee is 5 dollars now, but still worth it!

The trail is covered in snow about half way up the trail. Crampons and poles recommended if planing to summit.

I did this as my very first solo hike! A little belated birthday present to myself, too! Had an AMAZING day up there! The weather was perfect, though the chill of winter was definitely showing up! The trail was wet from rain the previous day/night, so there were a few moderately slick spots, but my hiking boots were more than enough to get past it. Had the trail mostly to myself! Took the new, scenic trail up, and the west trail back for some variation. So different-looking than in the spring! I have been on Dog Mountain I think 2 or 3 times before and the wind was the calmest I’ve ever experienced it up there. I wanted to go back as soon as I left! I think I left my heart up there! Love this hike!

The trail is covered in snow and can be slippery in quite a few places. If you have spikes or crampons that would be best. Be prepared for the cold and wind with plenty of layers! Saw a lot of people hiking in the dark without headlamps/flashlights, if you’re going later in the day be ready for it to get dark fast on your way down. Gorgeous view at the top!

It was a great trail. Not too hard and a great length. How ever, I believe the 6.9 mi. that this app says is wrong. My garmin watch said it was close to 9 miles. Went late November and hiked through some snow! Slippery but just be cautious. And crossing the river is fairly easy. Enjoy!

Steep uphill for a bit but so worth the spectacular view at the top. I would take a lunch and sit at the top. I think this would be incredible early for a sunrise. I will do this hike over and over. Follow the signs for top spur trailhead. To get to the parking.

Great View! Trail is mostly clear still with the last mile or so fairly snow covered. Maybe 6 to 8 inches deep at the top. Five mountain view is totally worth it!

If you start at Indian Beach- all the best views are basically at the beginning.

This was a very beautiful hike! Easy to do but requires shoes with good traction. There is a section after the bridge that allows you to go down by the water but we were unable to venture down due to slippery conditions. Highly recommend this hike in summer/fall!!

Great hike, but definitely need spikes to get to the shelter. It may be better now, but when we went all the snow was iced over and there was no traction whatsoever. Longer than 10 miles, but worth every step. We took the trail that added an extra 0.6 mile to get that glorious view of Mt Hood, and an extra mile going to Cairn Basin. The trek down to Cairn Basin after the shelter is worth it.

Gorgeous hike with so many waterfalls! It’s busy because of the beauty and ideal for most hiking skills. Get there early and don’t complain about others wanting to enjoy this spectacular hike. Watch for slippery rocks. But enjoy God’s country!

Hiked in May, loads of wildflowers and beautiful views.

Awesome, relaxed hike. Crossing the river wasn't too bad - it definitely looks scarier than it is. We went the first weekend of November and there was no issue, but I'm not sure how high the water is now that it's rained recently.

Went there yesterday. Gorgeous hike challenging but not annoyingly difficult. Some ice patches but I easily broke through most of it. A good pair of treaded hiking boots should be fine. If you are under 130#s maybe some shoe spikes might be in order.

Fun relatively easy hike! Be prepared to walk on a log to cross the river! Super pretty and pretty empty trail!

Done it twice. ready to do it again!

This one is fun. Suspension bridges and ladders make it especially unique. Great views of waterfalls and cascades. I did the entire trail and as other reviews have said just be careful and know that you probably shouldn’t bring pets/children. At the split near the beginning of the trail I veered right and went over the bridge. I think this is the better route because you get great views of the falls on the way back up.
Here's a video of my experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF5ragxSIw8&t=4s

***After the 30 foot ladder but before the next bridge there is another smaller ladder that is somewhat hard to find. It leads to a short out/back trail on a ridge that pays off with extraordinary views.

Travelers note:
Forest pass: YES
Parking fee: $5 without forest pass
Travel time from Portland: about 2 hours
Driving conditions: road to the trailhead has a fair amount of potholes and such. Drive is possible in a car but probably better to have a vehicle with clearance.

11/18/18. Relatively easy hike, mostly flat, well-defined trail. Beautiful views of Mt. Hood when the forest opens up a bit. Ramona falls was an awesome way to cap off the hike.

Great hike! I didn't do the entire loop though. I took the Canyon Trail and cut across on the Winter Trail and then took the Rim Trail back. (to do the 7 mile loop, you do the Canyon and Rim trails). The way I did it was a 5 mile loop and I saw 8 of the 10 waterfalls. So even if you cut it short, you'll still see them!

I went in November and the fog hung in the air even into the afternoon, making for awesome pictures and a more somber/peaceful experience. Go on a weekday to avoid crowds, and start in the morning if you can. In the fall, definitely bring warm clothes and hats, mittens, etc!

The trail is rated as moderate, but with the slight elevation gain (other online sources say only 800 feet), I'd rate it as easy. There are steep sections, especially one place going down to Lower South Falls, but there are stairs and handrails here.

Parking is $2.00 for an all day pass. Totally worth it!

I loved this hike and recommend it to families with slightly older kids. As well as anyone who likes to hike but isn't looking to overexert themselves.

Great loop trail to run. It was about 15 miles with very little elevation change. Pay attention and have your route mapped. It is easy to veer onto another trail, especially when running.

Today it was sunny, cool at 38 degrees and brisk with an East wind blowing 20+ mph. It was noticeable on the West shore, but the trees and terrain protected the rest of the trail. Mt. Hood looked fabulous with its dusting of snow. I saw 3 people on the trail getting in their last hike before the snows arrive.

Beautiful view of Mt. Hood from the top, and a terrific spot for a picnic. When we hiked this trail back in March it had a lot of ice and snow, so I would recommend micro spikes and trekking poles. My only complaint is the lack of parking. We parked down at the ski area, and had to walk along the highway; Very unsafe.
