I went hiking with my friend on 12/09 , and it was so cold, windy and the road was kind of slippery, but we enjoyed our hike. it's really beautiful place to go hiking.

beautiful hike! Not strenuous at all, with lots of great scenery. took my husband and I about 3hrs round trip as we stopped ap many time to get amazing photos. highly recommend microspikes if you're going this time of year (december), especially as you get closer to the falls and at the falls if you want to get a closer look.
only reason I'm not giving a 5 out 5 is because there were several people with dogs not on leashes. Please be courteous of other hikers (especially those who actually have their dogs on leashes). I love dogs but dont love being jumped on when I'm trying to enjoy my 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.

Hiked this 12/9 - great views but strong wind gusts. Slippery spots on the way up had turned to straight ice on the way back down coupled with 50mph gusts. Looking forward to doing it again come spring, but wouldn’t recommend in this weather without spikes or poles

Gorgeous views

Great sunrise hike 12/6, very windy but so happy to be able to enjoy a clear day up there again. Trail was frozen hard, so not muddy, minor ice sections.

Great hike this past Sunday! So glad this trail is now open again. Slippery going up but trekking poles made it easy in the fudgy mud on the way down! HUGE thanks to everyone involved in getting this trail back open. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.

Went on 12/1/18, was awesome to see all the people enjoying the trail since it just recently opened again. The trail does look different due to the fires. Make sure to bring good hiking shoes and a hiking stick, the trail is extremely muddy!

We had a great hike today. The trail is muddy in spots and very muddy near the top. We also experienced very high winds at the top. I imagine the trail conditions will only worsen as we have more rain.

The view is the best part once you get to the falls

So so happy to be back on this trail again! The fire did its thing, but this majestic trail will live on. Thank you to all of the volunteers who restored the quality and made it safe.

Hiking on the second weekend after re-opening, there were a TON of hikers on the trail. And it was muddy as heck. Standard hiking footwear and trekking poles will provide the safest passage during the rainy season.

Even though it’s re-opened, I would like hikers to observe leave-no-trace principles. I saw litter and during my 3 hour hike n rest, about 20 people furnished walking sticks from downed branches to help them with the mud. I know it may seem innocent, but multiply this action over days and weeks and the landscape is unnecessarily being altered by unprepared hikers.

But overall, such a positive experience to be back on a missed trail! Happy hikes everyone!

It’s an amazing view and a fairly easy hike.

However this trail needs to be closed this time of year. The trail was an mess about a third of the way from the top due to overuse and mud. The risk of falling down the side of the hill is very real if you are not wearing the appropriate foot ware aka running shoes.

Lovely hike. Went up on dec 2nd. Spikes highly recommended for the final 3rd to the falls.

Hiked on 11/29: no fee parking, nearest bathroom.8 miles, trail is well-marked. Go early, parking is limited & fills fast. Muddy in spots and poles are helpful. Amazing how quick Mother Nature replenishes the charred trail- lots of beautiful yellow foliage. Very windy at the summit-45 mph winds almost knocked me over. Beautiful views of the gorge all along the trail.

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!

I absolutely love this trail!! The only problem with this trail that I have encountered, is that many folks don't leash their dogs. This makes it challenging for a dog on a leash. If one dog is on leash and the other isn't, this can create big issues between the two..Please leash your pup's, even if they are super sweet.

Went this last Sunday, it was raining and I came out muddy and wet but all worth it! I drive 2 wheel Hondai Tucson and took the road down as far as I felt comfortable then walked. Felt good about my stopping point. The last mile of the road is larger rocks and comfortable in a higher clearance Subaru but I didn’t want to chance it. The Hike is great once you get to the trail head. Stayed Left, very steep but ropes right where you needed them. Loved walking along the river, glad I had boots, lots of rocks to get they but the Waterfall is mind blowing!

Beautiful and relaxing easy hike for my dog and I. I will definitely go back.

It was icy on some parts of the trail, but nothing that required micro spikes. They will probably be needed within the next couple weeks. You will need spikes if you want to go behind the falls though.

Road to the trail is kinda hectic. alot of pot holes and big sharp rocks. asides from that I made it down to the gate in my honda crv. If u make it all the way to the end of the road the hike goes from 5.3 down to like 1 1/2 miles from the gate. stay to the left when u hike down the trail. STAY TO THE LEFT! if u don't want to climb down a cliff.

Too many people to enjoy anything. Few had any trail etiquette or adequate shoes for the conditions. This made the hike unsafe, with folks blocking the trail or slipping and sliding into us. We couldn't get off the trail fast enough.

Extremely crowded. Otherwise felt similar to going there previously, there were areas with notable burn

Absolutely wonderful hike. I loved it. It’s amazing.

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.

Very pretty trail and waterfall. Follows the river the entire way. Microspikes are highly recommended!! don't let the beginning of the trail fool you. It gets icey and rocky.

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

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

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.

Hiked on 11/18. Gate closed so u have to hike half mile to TH. No bathrooms, no parking fee. Took trip around the lake first which was quite serene. No sun, no views but lots of cool mushrooms, unusual tree roots
