Hiked this in early December, it was beautiful and my first time up! Definitely bring lots of clothing layers and good hiking shoes, it was very slick and icy in some spots.

Best mountain in Oregon that I’ve been on.

Loved your review Rashid! Agree. This hike is one to remember.

The hike is a must! Each waterfall is amazing! Easy hike

It is always a nice trail but seems longer than 3,6 miles, I thought around 4.6 which is what I found in another site and also confirmed by my phone. I had an enjoyable time.

Today, December 12th, was my second time hiking this trail. The first time was in July, and I must say that I enjoyed the hike even more today! Saw 90% less hikers, the views were stunning, there was lots of snow in the lake, and way more water flowing down the trail. My regular hiking shows were pretty good for the adventure. The rain and snow just made it more exciting.

great work out still feeling it. some snow up top also

always a great hike!

Went Saturday starting around 8:30. weather was supposed to be bad but it cleared around 11 for a bit. Quite a few good views of Hood. Just took hiking boots. Snow got deep enough to want skis about a half mile before the A frame. Postholling pretty bad about a mile after the A frame. One more storm and I'll go back up with skis. Many people did it with skis on this day after some bootpacking. uSpikes would have been nice on the way down.

Will go back in winter and summer

Definitely a work out on the way up!

With 2 kids, this hike usually takes us 4 hours. (3 hours up, 1 hour down) The views at the top are so worth it!

Stunning ocean and hill views for probably over half the hike, and the rest is lush, green and also beautiful. With all the footwork between the steps/erosion control, roots, and narrow path near the top this hike ends up feeling longer than it is - but totally worth it.

I hiked up lake 22 on 12/5.

Many parts of the trail was icy. It would be helpful to have spikes.we brought our spikes, but we didn't use them. However, it would have been a lot easier to go up and down certain parts had we had spikes on. The snow around the lake is absolutely beautiful. We walked around the lake, and the snow on a trail was packed.

way to over crowned its like the pumpkin spice latte of hiking.

Scariest hike ever. I'm talking about the cable portion, it is steep as hell and even steeper than photos when you see it in person. But it is do-able you just have to focus on moving to the next wooden board. The wooden boards I believe are spaced out 10 feet from each other from the bottom of the dome to the top. It took us about an hour just to get to the top because there was traffic lots of people going up and down simultaneously. We had to take turns for those coming down and those going up. To get to the top without traffic should only take maybe 10-15 mins to give perspective on what traffic does. Also the traffic IMO makes it more scary because you have to hold onto the cables even longer.

I'd recommend using gloves with a latex coating to help with the cables as it gives your hands much more grip and you'll avoid blistering your hands like many other people.

I'd recommend doing it if you want to face your fears. Just take it one wooden board at a time until you reach the top and you'll be fine. Lots of people did it and have done it.

Would I do it again? Probably not lol just because it was scary as shit. BUT DO IT ONCE AT LEAST :D

Great hike! It was chilly today and we didn’t bring enough layers but still very fun!

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

Nice easy walk to two beautiful waterfalls. If you catch it right the sun makes a rainbow just by the falls. Went on 3rd December and trail was a little icy and slippy so be careful. Was very quite as well only us along the trail.

I did the trail for the first time today and it was a beautiful, though chili hike. The entire trail is snowed in so come prepared. The road itself leading to the trailhead is covered in snow, though lots of exposed ice throughout would make it unsuitable for non AWD vehicles without snow tires. Temperatures hovered around 25°F, with clouds rolling in and out, and occasional cool wind gusts/mild snow fall. This was despite a forecast of clear skies. Overall, the hike is very enjoyable, and I plan on doing it again later this winter.

Hiked to lake 22 today knowing that it is a very popular hike we thought a mid week hike would deter a lot of people. Well we were wrong. We arrived just before 9 and there was only 2 other cars in the parking lot. But on the way back down we ran in to everyone. I was a little underwhelmed by the hike after hearing all the hype. There is about 8 inches of snow once you hit the lake but since it has been so nice out for the past few days the snow is iced over and very compact. Did come across a few places that you had to watch your step because of water frozen over on the trail.

Over crowded trail.

Pretty muddy most of the year so bring some good hiking boots and an extra towel if you have a 4 legged companion! Otherwise, the views are spectacular are more than you could ever ask for a hike under 5 miles and essentially no elevation again.

This is a nice trail, but very heavily trafficked (at least on weekends)
If it's not foggy, you can have a clear view of the valley somewhere near the lake. A lot of moss, a few waterfalls and river streams to cross, typical PNW landscape.

The lake is nice, was snowy when we went (Dec. 2nd).

We hiked to Blue Pool on 11-26-2018. The trail is well maintained but there are rocks that you have to climb over so be aware that it’s not a flat path the whole way. IMO there could be a few more markers for the viewing outlooks....easy to walk right by when you don’t know to look for them. My watch said we did 4.3 miles, from the parking lot to Blue Pool and back but it’s mostly flat and was no problem for my kids (ages 11 & 10).

Hiked this yesterday & loved it! There were some good inclines & minor rock climbing, but what a view at the summit! It's worth the drive from Kitsap!

Did it 12/1 and the top had 2-3” of snow. It was incredible. Followed coyote tracks for a while. Fog blew in and out. I actually loved it.

Hiked this today in the later afternoon. It was lightly snowing at the top which made for a cool experience. I didn’t get to see the epic views due to the clouds/snowing but as I hiked back down it cleared out for a beautiful sunset and you could see the ocean.

The parking fee is 5 dollars now, but still worth it!
