Beautiful hike, very well maintained trails. Very busy on the weekends though...

Hiked this with my husband pushing our bob stroller and my 7 month old baby strapped to me in the Ergo. Difficult but amazing. We loved every minute. The views are outstanding!

Probably one of my all time favourite hikes. It’s a mix of hard up hill, hard downhill and everything in between. The beauty of the area on a sunny day, is magnanimous.the hike itself is hard, with slightly sketchy moments, but nothing to fear. Just put your head down and keep going.

this is a great hike. go to the right for shorter steeper or the left for longer and mellow. both ways are beautiful.

weather was perfect, 55 and party cloudy. did the hard section first (would recommend) then got to relax with a nice, easy walk at the end.

Excellent views!!

Awesome route that takes you through all the best Smith has to offer!

Great hike. And views from the top are absolutely worth it. Looking forward to doing it again when I’m back in Oregon!

Really amazing hike, had so much fun! Amazing views and a great workout. The first stretch was the hardest but after the first mile or two it still gained quite a bit in elevation but was pretty easy. The whole loop took about 3 hours with breaks to watch the rock climbers, loved it!

Pretty dull trail. Not to say it isn’t beautiful, it’s just that there are way better hikes with less people in the area. This would be a great hike for a young family with a running baby stroller. Lots of people and smooth paths

I am 50 years old had a heart attack in June of 2017. And we made it up and thru the whole trail. Don’t kid yourself, it’s difficult but beautiful. It was awsome

Beautiful views and great workout!

AMAZING hike and views! Definitely a difficult hike, but worth it! My all time fav!

Love it when I'm there to hike, hate it when I'm there to climb. But this trail always commands some of the most breathtaking sunsets in Oregon. Always a top pick.

Amazing hike, perfect weather just the right amount of challenge.

Beautiful views, dog friendly, perfect run!

Great hike with great views.

It was super scary but totally worth it!!!

Beautiful hike... Very easy

Breathtaking but hard

Pretty hard not going to lie, but well worth it! Decided to go left on the trail and hike by the river before going up Misery Ridge and I think it was way better than going up all those stairs. Beautiful hike!

A great hike and a great workout. This hike needs to be on every Oregonians bucket list.

This was such a beautiful place to hike. Not sure I agree with the moderate rating though. This was a tough trail.

great mountain biking trail

Enjoyed the loop yesterday. I’m looking forward to exploring more trails.

Great trail run! The ground was frozen and had bike ruts so some parts I had to take slow so I wouldn’t roll an ankle but other than that it was a great run without too many hills!

Unbelievable to hike on New Years Eve. Moderate traffic. Well groomed. Definitely layer clothing as was warm on way up and had to put coat/beanie back on for descent down. River trail back is stunning and boasts great views of climbers.

Just an all around solid walk / hike!

Great morning trail for walking, running and strolling. The falls were running nicely and provided great pictures and sound.
