Beautiful from start to finish. Truly Fairy like feeling ascending & descending around the Hoodoos!! Highly recommend!!!

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

It’s nice beautiful trees

Great short hike, disappointing waterfall but still nice to see

Dang my feet hurt! And my knees! Good thing this was a pretty hike! Saw like 8 marmots!! And the icefield, which was pretty cool too. Sept 11, 2018. 7.5 hr RT.

enjoyed the hike and views.

Nice, but more hyped up than imagined. Just about every hike in the area is similar unless you go far, and you can only look at the same tall trees so long before getting bored. California has many other, more exciting hikes, but if in SFO area, this is a decent area. Pain that you need to book in advance, bit keeps crowds of tourists out.

Nice little hike

Lots of people today on a holiday weekend. (This was Aug. 31st) Saw many deer, marmots, and chipmunks. Easy walk. Wide and flat trail. Had to Parking Lot A as Lot B was full. Work still closes the lot nearest the TH.

Deservingly the #1 trail of the park. The drive up to Hurricane Ridge is gorgeous in itself but this trail takes things to a whole other level. You walk along a mountain ridge that has stunning snowcapped mountains on one side and a cloudy forest on the other. And the views just keep getting better as you climb up. The smokey clouds around you give it an otherworldly feeling.

Cool but casual hike. Nice view even when smokey.

It was a nice hike but harder than expected. My friend who is new to hiking “suffered” quite a bit. Nice view at the end. All in all good, but would not do the same hike again.

Good little hike. Steeper at the beginning and the end. I thought the view from the top was ok...not breathtaking, but definitely very nice.

Great views - but almost didn't take this hike after arriving at the Hurricane Hill visitor center and feeling the cold, blowing wind there (hence the name). But after getting to the trailhead I found the trail wasn't as windy.
Best part, aside of the great view, was seeing a bear take a dip in the pond on the northside valley while we were on top of Hurricane Hill. Cool to see - glad it was way down in the pond to be admired from a safe distance. Dozens of other people were on this trial - it's a busy place.

Spectacular hike! Starts fairly wooded, at the Meadows overlook breaks out into open territory and beautiful alpine meadows. Every stop off provides a beautiful view, so don’t feel shortchanged if you can not make it the entire way up. We climbed to Top of the Cliffs and were rewarded with a beautiful view of the Icefield, glacier, even a black bear grazing on berries about 200 yds away. Plenty of people on the trail but good to bring bug and bear spray just in case. Took about 4 hours round trip, but we took our time and picked raspberries and blueberries along the way :) a must do for anyone visiting the area.

Watch out for bees, they were pretty feisty. Also, ran into a mama mountain goat and her baby.

Beautiful

Steep, but not prohibitively strenuous. There's a bunch of rocks at the bottom you can walk on near the bottom of the falls. Well worth the couple of hours spent here.

Beautiful trail. Well maintained. Views are excellent. Bring plenty of water.

Nice hike. Went there after seeing the crowd at Rattlesnake Ledge (yikes!). This trail was somewhat busy but nothing like Rattlesnake! Only complaint is that at the top of the climb there’s only a small area for sitting & viewing & not much shade. Lots of shade on the trail though.

Best hike I ever done !

A moderate hike. Good to go with kid on back (3 year old / 30 pounds). Parts of it can be steep, but overall manageable. Some switchbacks later in the hike. Gave me a feeling of entering the Jurassic world - dunno why :)
Limited space up top for larger groupss and views are nothing fantastic, but at least something.

Really fun hike, it's a pretty mixed challenge. Once you get past the steep first portion, it's pretty mild and more trail-like until you get to the end. Be careful for bees/wasps, they were in a frenzy when I visited and I saw two people getting stung, and another young kid walking back on the trail with his parents who got stung.

Finally to all the dog owners who take their pups hiking... PICK UP AND DISPOSE OF YOUR DOG'S POOP, AND IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE THAT... KEEP YOUR DOG AT HOME. I saw at least 8 dog bags left on the trail in various spots. Really people, do you think the dog poop fairy going to take care of that for you? Clean up your shit, or leave the dog at home. Respect our mother earth and leave the trail better than you found it.

Loved every second of this walk. I wasn't expecting it to be so magical.

Beautiful. Busy but it wasn’t so busy for us as we came in early September

Nice short hike. I was concerned it might be steep and hard work for my ten year old daughter who has not hiked much, but she handled without any difficulties. We ate lunch at a little picnic table below the tower and enjoyed taking in the views. The trail was well maintained and definitely seemed to be a nice place for people with dogs.

While the views of the Olympic mountains and the ease of the hike were beautiful, we found this trail to be very crowded. We’d do it again regardless! We saw marmots, grouse and chipmunks. We also got to see a few black tail deer very close up. The signs warn you to stay 50 ft away, but the deer had other ideas and weren’t afraid of us at all, approaching us on the trail. We tried hard to follow the rules but without getting far off the trail wasn’t quite possible.

The hike was easy for the most part. The hike to the peak is a little more challenging, but easily done with two young teens setting a quick pace. We found the path easy to follow and easy to pass others.

Amazing views the entire hike! This trail is a lot less crowded than some of the other trails in the park. There is lots of climbing and lots of sun so bring plenty of water. The hike took us about 4-5 hours with some stopping.

This is a great place for beginners to hike rain or shine. It was a bit of a challenge for my two gamer children 11/16 yo. The falls are beautiful year round and are best viewed in the spring or after a good rain fall.

Arrive early this is a popular location. The lot was full by the time I made it back to the trailhead.

A discover pass will take care of your parking fee or pay by cc at the trailhead.
