great views! if you are scared of heights this is not for you.

It's an easy hike that follows the river. I don't think we ever found Moulton Falls but we continued and saw Lucia Falls. There are zero signs on the trail. I took the advice of previous people and took a picture of the map, though that didn't help us. I'll give it 3 stars for being easy, having pretty enough views of the river the whole time. However, it's crowded and the falls remain a mystery to me.

Arrived at 8am on a Sunday to only a few cars in the parking lot. Did the full loop with my dog and was back at my car by 10:45am. Passed a few people on my way up but otherwise only came across one other person the entire hike, until I got back to the junction and went the last mile ish back down the main trail, at which point there were lots more people and a full parking lot.

Towards the top parts of the trail were quite wet, some patches of snow all over the top but not much. It was extremely windy - actually quite dangerous considering some of the ridges. My 30lb dog was blown about five feet sideways and I thankfully had her on the leash. The guts would’ve knocked me over if I weren’t braced against them. I recommend avoiding this hike if the Gorge is windy on arrival.

The upper half of the hike has a lot of rocky / semi-scrambling parts. Hard on the knees but nothing like Munra Point or some other areas of the Gorge. I imagine these areas would be tricky if the ground were at all icy.

Overall great hike, good views at the top. Just get there early to avoid crowds.

It's one of my favorite training Runs

The full loop is a TOUGH 8 mile hike with elevation of 2200 incline and decline. Amazing views and worth every minute. Dog friendly.

A great place for an easy hike. Just don't go in the summer if you don't like crowds.

This was a great hike. It was very windy but nice and sunny!

Gorgeous river and waterfalls!

Great trail. I love this area so much. Road is BAD we parked 2 miles away from the trailhead so we hiked an extra 4 miles. Do NOT take trail to the left on the rock while it’s snowy- we were postholing in about 6-8” of harder packed snow but still fell through. TONS of animal prints everywhere. Very windy. The trail to the right of the rock is your best bet- SO much easier.

Dog review: This trail was the perfect length for a moderate outing. Took my four dogs and I about four hours. The way up can be a little sketchy with dogs because it’s steep and slippery this time of year. My guys have great leash skills so getting everyone up steep switchbacks and walking on narrow areas wasn’t a problem, but could be for a dog in training or inexperienced pup. Though the trail up has a couple steep switchbacks, the way down is wide and even suitable for horses, VERY easy if you have dogs. Way up is alright as long as you have good control. Only a few rocky areas, no booties needed for my guys. Lots of puddles and streams so you can pack less water than normal for the pups.

Super easy out and back. Went on a crisp January day, damp and overcast with about a dozen people on the mostly paved trail with me.

Fun hike on New Years Day. Not at all crowded early but quite a few people later in the day making their way up.

Went beginning of Jan when it was in the mid 40s. Not too muddy and no micro spikes needed.

Had some great views but the last 1.2 miles is just road. If you turn around at the waterfall to do an out and back it’d probably be something like 10 miles. Didn’t encounter cars on the road though which was good.

Good New Year’s Eve hike, snow was very picturesque!

Such an awesome little hike!

Good hike. The early on waterfalls after 1 mile in were the highlight of the hike for me. A little muddy due to the rain around this time of year.

I’d rate it as moderate-hard.

Love this trail and I’m lucky it’s right in my backyard

Was able to get out mid-December on a day with very little wind and ~50deg temps. Lots of good views looking east up the gorge. Also a nice variety of terrain minus the paved home stretch. Not to mention very accessible.

Steep especially in the beginning, 800 feet elevation in the first mile, I enjoyed the snow about half way up. Was cloudy but could imagine that the view was beautiful at the top, in my list to repeat in the spring.

The upper trail section is well worth it, but unless you just want the extra miles I'd skip the lower section and turn it into an out and back.

Great hike with amazing views. My husband and I really enjoyed it all!

Hiked this trail mid day Saturday and for the 4 hours it took me to finish I didn’t see one other hiker. Definitely a plus and the waterfall is beautiful

This is one of my favorite loops for a scenic, slightly challenging day hike. It’s not too muddy yet, but high traffic areas around the Pool of the Winds are getting there. Be sure to pack a coat, as well as some gloves and a hat for the summit; there’s already some snow accumulation, especially on the north face of Hamilton Mountain.

7.5 miles round trip, 2 caches, lots of fun.

went out for a bit today (11/27/18) and it was nice up there. a little windy and foggy but overall a nice hike. I only did about half of the trail because o was short on time but I did not encounter any snow. the road is as bad as always but I still manage to make it up in my Subaru Crosstrek with relative ease.

Great hike! Beautiful views. My 7 year old daughter was able to hike it, but she is a pretty determined kid.

My hubby and I happened to be stranded in Portland for the weekend with our truck in the shop so we rented a car and decided to hit the trail and we came upon this one. We had a wonderful time and found the hike quite entertaining. I would consider the trail a fairly easy hike to the top with plenty areas to rest and take in the views..:.would definitely do this again
