trail running

Beautiful view, I love walking this trail. Pretty off-trail areas to explore as well. I run and push a stroller on it and it works for the most part, with a few challenging spots. Very dog friendly, even has a trash can for waste disposal.

Pretty. The drive up was very scenic. The fresh blue water of the river was very relaxing to sit by. I even got enough courage to soak my feet in it. Very refreshing!

Beautiful trail-did the last part of it around Lake Angeles the other day!

Went on a Wednesday afternoon and wasn't too crowded. Started at 3 and was back to my car at 6:30. I had my Golden Retriever with me so we stopped a few times for him to cool off in the creek. Would definitely recommend going left at the fork if hiking with a dog, lots of water. Coming back the other way around the loop the trail is completely dry. My dog is a strong swimmer, but crossing the river made me pretty nervous. Current was much stronger and deeper than it appeared. Overall an afternoon well spent!

Very steep and rocky trail. Uphill all the way and downhill all the way down. Very tiresome. There are stunning panoramic views at the top. Just be ready to work hard to get there. Also, lots of mountain goats along the trail.

Got turned around at Panorama Point due to snow but still incredible!

We did the 5.3 mile round trip hike, out and back. Ample parking across the street from the trail head. View is worth every bit of the hike (which was beautiful too). Trail is a bit overgrown in parts but in no way a deterrent. Berries all along the trail!

Beautiful panoramic scene at the top

Incredible views at the top- so well worth it. Another person at the top told us it was the highest point on the Oregon coast! Took the south trail- about 1.5 miles there and back. Took under an hour each way.

Another fabulous Oregon Coast Trail. You can also park at the south end of the trail and hike to the top making it an in-and-out hike. Going this way, the total in-and-out distance is about 3 miles. Elevation gain is about 1200 feet and I would classify this as a moderate hike.

Hiking up to the upper falls is a moderate hike: rocky and rooty. The loop trail has signs but not where it counts. The hike to the bottom of the fall is easy and well maintained (there were even some strollers). Very dog friendly.

Saw a bunch of marmots, chipmunks and even a mountain goat! Also on a clear day gorgeous views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams.

Stunning view and worth the hike!

I hiked up 2 miles to Tom Creek where I was greeted by a picturesque waterfall. The trail was beautiful and shaded with a gentle climb.

Cool view of Mt. Adams, St. Helen's, Hood in the distance at the point. Not to mention Mt. Rainier. Followed a couple marmots up the trail. Not as crowded later in the day.

constant uphill hike, ended up not being as long as I expected but still required several breaks (I am also not in pristine shape - RIP my quadriceps). Definitely worth it for a view of the lake, though. Jumped in after lunch. EXTREMELY COLD on July 15th.

Great hike. Went with four kids ages 4,6,7, and 8. They all enjoyed it. Still snow on parts of the trail.

Absolutely breathtaking views. Hiked this with my 10 year old daughters. Had a wonderful time. Good shoes or boots are a must and bring plenty of water. Get there early to avoid the crowds and find parking. Plan for a lunch break at panorama point. STAY ON THE TRAIL! Oh and there is a vault toilet at panorama point.

A beautiful ridge hike with lots of mountain meadow views as well as a really nice panorama of the mountains of the Olympic National Park.

We hiked this yesterday. Started towards Frozen Lake, but views would have been better from the opposite entrance. Did Boroughs 1 & 2, had three snow passes which were melting and very slippery. Wasn’t easy without poles, but we made it. Wouldn’t recommend for anyone with strong fear of heights or without good grip on boots. Views were stunning, wildflowers were lovely. Stopped for lunch at Shadow Lake, but the bugs were biting hard despite bug spray, so had to abandon. Overall still an amazing hike.

I have not been here but felt the need to share. Skamania County just announced that a hiker slipped and fell here and did not survive 7/16/18.
Be careful out there, fellow hikers.

Amazing hike with lots of wildlife and great panoramic views at the top.

The first part of the trail is paved. It is quite demanding bc of how steep it is. We had our 4 year old with us. Made it to the Panorama Point and kept going despite the initial plan. We ended up doing 2x the distance of the loop bc the split of the trails wasn’t marked or was still under the snow. We ended up at the Reflection Lakes and had to go out on the road to ask for a ride up to the Paradise Inn. Before we went on the hike we talked to a couple who had the same happen to them but at the time weren’t applying it to us as we didn’t think our 4 year old would last that long. Something for the park rangers to fix. What could have been a fun walk ended up being a frantic trail running to get to the road while we still had some ambient lighting after the sunset. Hiked inadvertently 8 miles. If we got on a trail early during the day and got “lost” it would have been fine but bc we started late it was unnecessarily stressful.

Fun and pretty easy trail. There were a lot of people at the first fall as would be expected, but the second fall wasn’t hard to reach and much less crowded.

I’ve only hiked a portion of this trail but this forest needs to be seen to be believed. So much natural beauty. I hope to go back someday to see more.

Great hike. The river crossing was relatively easy. Beautiful Hood view at that spot. If you go left after the river to make it a loop, it's definitely longer. So if you want a (slightly) shorter option, stay right. The falls are really cool - very pretty.

Beautiful hike with upper and lower falls but loop trail is not marked. Would suggest hiking to the upper Falls and turning back and not doing the loop. Dog friendly

Long initial climb about 1500 vert. in about 2 Miles, then becomes more gradual. Beautiful panoramic views, phenomenal views of the glaciers, amazing wild flowers, but no dogs:(
