Amazing hike, but come prepared for icy and snowy trail conditions starting halfway through the hike! It’s difficult hiking in ice up and down hill. Bring boot traction chains and hiking poles. They’re absolutely necessary. Hiked November 10th 2018.

I got engaged on Mount Si! Great day to go for a hike. Very clear and the trail was well maintained. There is a small spot where a tree has fallen over the trail and people have made a trail through it, but coming back down it’s hard to tell where it is. All over perfect day.

Top hike to get near Hood; love it!

Nowhere near 7.7. Plan for more like 10.5 if you make it all the way to the point. It's an amazing, and beautiful, hike, but definitely plan for something more substantial than the description indicates.

The gray jays and ravens made it even more fun!

The rain has arrived. Trail was not really muddy or slippery, though the top was shrouded in clouds with zero views. Good exercise as usual. Tip for getting some view under such weather: at the UPPER talus loop trail junction take a detour onto talus loop trail. In about five minutes you will arrive at the talus pile. This is low enough that it can be below the clouds, but high enough to have a descent view.

Hiked it with my dog on 10/27. I am super out of shape but I pushed myself and made it up and down! I am proud of myself- as this hike is an ass kicker. It was beautiful. My dog had no issues, he’s in much better shape than me haha!!

Decent traffic, great views.

Loved this hike! It wasn’t hot this time of year and we didn’t see a single other person during the entire hike. Some signs had broken and were on the ground, but we had a map and it was easy to figure out where to go. The falls were pretty light this time of year, but we did see a herd of elk while on the Loowit trail (after we left the Truman trail). We also heard rockfalls inside the crater. A ranger told us after we got back that this often happens due to micro quakes under the lava dome.

This definitely is not 7.7, my Garmin measured 9.5 miles going with the shortcut. Do. Not. Do. The. Shortcut. It’s so so steep and not worth it, especially with my dog. The in and out way is so much more pleasant and scenic. I loved this hike enough to do it again without the terrible shortcut.

Very great hike. I would rate hard, but it is on the longer side, with steady incline throughout. Must do if wanting to get up close and personal with Mt. Hood, and wanting a decent hike!

Butt kicker, but a nice view at the top of the rocks. Only real downside is the number of people and an overall lack of trail etiquette

Beautiful t-shirt weather, no bugs, perfect day! Met many great people. I got to witness and take a photo for a couple from Minnisota who were in outright disbelief as they viewed a real mountain up close for the first time. A good reminder of how lucky we are to live here and see it often.

Great view at the top. Nice shade along the trails. Overall not too much litter for as many people that visit this trail.

Hiked this on 10/20/18. It's a little confusing where to park, at the paved snow park parking lot or tenths of a mile up the dirt road at the end of the lot that takes you right to the trailhead. there isn't a lot of room at the trailhead, so we chose the paved lot. This is an awesome 10 miler. I did it in late October, so there wasn't much left of the one lake on the route. the first 2.5 miles are an easy gradual incline. Take a break at the lake before doing the second half, it gets steep from there to the summit. The blow down is easy to traverse. It's only for the mile from the lake on, and they are easily stepped over or have well worn paths around. Once you hit the switchbacks on the final mile to the summit the trail narrows, with lots of loose rocks. Our dog did fine on the entire trail. The views from the summit on a clear day are spectacular. To the north you can see as far as St. Helen's, and to the South I believe I could make out a portion of Broken Top through an opening on the East side of Mt. Washington, and every thing in between.

Perfect hiking conditions—70 degrees, no wind and almost no one on the mountain on a Monday morning. Leaves are changing colors and amazing views the whole way. Easy drive from PDX, took about an hour after crossing in to Washington. I’d rate the trail moderate only for length—it was never steep or difficult terrain. My only negative on this trail is it is a dry trail, so be sure to bring enough water for you and the dogs. You’re in the woods for all but the last mile, so you don’t have to worry too much about being overexposed to the sun.

Pound for pound the most amazing hike I’ve done in Oregon and I’ve done some amazing hikes all over this state. We caught it on a crisp clear day and the vistas are breath taking. You could see well over 100 miles in all directions. We could see St. Helens, Rainier, Adams, Jefferson, Sisters, the rolling cascades, the central oregon desert... it was well worth the effort.

You can get there in a mid clearance car but we opted for a 4x4 Jeep which made getting there easier. The trail is mostly sandy and rocky.

Be sure to check the weather forecast before you go. We were very fortunate but I’d pack for wind/rain/cold just to be safe as it can easily change. I’d also recommend a hat, sunglasses, something to cover your ears from wind, and gloves. Trail is never super steep for very long. Mostly a gradual trudge. A++

The view from the top is a 5 star. Three fingered Jack is spectacular. Lovely view of Jefferson with lakes and Washington at an interesting angle. Starts with a dense forest of deciduous trees and color changing shrubs and ends with alpine meadows. 2 miles in between are a blowdown corridor that is a hassle to navigate. Worth it for the view. Wear bright colors in the fall as hunters were also on trail.

Did this yesterday (Friday) and LOVED it! Not many people on the trail at all. We found the trail a little confusing but figured it out in the end. Ended up keeping left on both loops going up and doing the other way down. This takes you the gradual way up to McNeil Point and we ended up going down the steep way. We agreed that we would have preferred climbing up the steep way over down- tough but it was pretty sketchy going down. If you go up the gradual way, don't feel like you need to wait until you get to the shelter to stop for views. We didn't sit in the shelter at all because it's enclosed so you miss much of the view. Wish we'd stopped to eat on one of the big rocks coming up!

Great hike! My ass feels like it got the workout of a lifetime.

It was lush and beautiful. Watch out your step though. Some spots are dangerous for unexperienced hikers. We lost the trail after 4 miles due to fallen trees and other things blocking the way. It’s easy to lose the trail if you do t know where you are going.

Great hike. Beautiful views. Small water crossing (plenty of rocks to jump on). Colors were changing so it was really beautiful.

Wooded hike until the very end where the view opens. Moderate hike if you’re in shape. Great view from the top.

The trail was in great shape and the weather today was perfect. The views from the top were excellent. I would rate this hike a moderate. (Excluding the Haystack)
