I hiked this back in 2012, and the trail has completely changed. It was very fascinating observing the wildfire damage back in 2017. The trail was in good condition however defiance trail #413 has about 40 downed logs to scurry over as well as very slippery dirt and gravel on the way back down. I would not hike this trail again just because of that. The view at the top was just as beautiful as I thought it would be!!

WalkingGreat!

Only observation area open but stunning views! We didn’t need a reso even though it says you do. They Had a place for a line on Labor Day but we got there early (8:30am) and were able to walk right up! Beautiful!

Happened upon this sweet little hike during our Labor Day weekend hiking trip. Of course everyone else did as well. VERY popular tourist attraction! Although there were soooooo many people, we decided to hike up to the upper falls anyway. It’s a super short, easy hike with a slight upgrade & rocky trail. Aside from all the people, it was a nice hike, and the falls at the end were a great payoff. Go on a non-holiday weekend, or better yet, during the week, and take a dip in the upper falls.

Restaurant/Gift Shop open. Website says trail open to the lower observation area by RESERVATION ONLY. However, there is a walk up line as well. Maybe a Labor Day weekend exception? Spent 30 minutes in line starting at the snack bar.

Nice trail and a good work out. It was pretty packed with tourists and for quite a ways up. I would mark it as heavily trafficked. Annoying to have to keep putting your mask back on. The falls were pretty.

Great views! Tough going and very rocky. If you‘we klutzy like me, you had to stop to enjoy the views because otherwise you end up stubbing your toe or tripping. In September, there was no water to be seen in the creek. Also, the path it shows if you’re recording is very inaccurate and confusing.

HikingGreat!

This was a great trail! It’s definitely a leg shredder (both on the way up and the way down), but the views are worth it. We did it as an out-and-back due to construction. You pass a few waterfalls at the very beginning and then wind through some meadows before entering the forest. Be aware on your way down- the steep section towards the bottom is very dusty and slippery. Took us about 7.5 hours, including 45 minutes at the top. There’s a cold creek about 20 feet past the parking lot- great for your feet and legs at the end of a big day.

HikingGreat!

Fun workout on way up, lots of switchbacks. A few small, pretty waterfalls. Although I wouldn’t say it was crowded, there were more people than I’d prefer to encounter, especially through the middle and lower portions of the trail. Also on the lower part you can hear the freeway traffic. Reasonable amount of parking.

HikingBlowdownGreat!Over grownRockyScramble

Left parking lot at 630am, beat the crowds, only a few cars in parking lot, it was overflowing when we returned. We did as a loop, going up 413 to the summit, clockwise on the top loop as like other hiker said, you get better views looking North after leaving the summit. We took the 414 Starvation Ridge trail down, passing Warren Lake. There are three reasons not to go this way and rather do as an Out and Back on 413 IMO. 1st off the trail is officially closed about 1.5 miles from the bottom, and 4 miles from the top. The signage for the closure is very confusing and positioned in terrible locations, as you cant see it coming up as you hit the fork with the 413 trail, the closure sign is out of sight around the 1st bend in trail, so you don't get the indication it is closed as you plan your loop. Coming from the top as you descend, you run into a closure sign far too late. We don't like to pouch, but we were already committed without the energy and time to backtrack 4 miles and ascent 3k feet more of climbing, so we continued on. Reason for closure is There is a little construction work on the power line and a re-route of the trail to bypass the area and avoid power pole and it's guy cable anchors , we just made sure to avoid the work are an continued on, the 2nd, and most convincing reason to avoid this route is there is quite a bit of poison oak on the bottom third of the trail, thankfully we lathered up with Technu at the car. Lastly, it is very loose and steep during much of the decent, even more so than the 413 Deception trail route if you can believe that. If the Park site had this listed as closed, we would have avoided, but only the 414b connector trail was indicated as closed due to a slide, plus it was taped off, so we knew to avoid it, they must be leaning on the contractor to warn of closure, they just aren't doing a great job with closure warnings and status. I described this in detail, because it was a question many others we ran across had. All in all, it is a butt kicker of a hike, do it only if you treasure Gorge views and strenuous hikes, otherwise you might want to pass. Last pieces of advise,bring plenty of water, account for if bringing dog there is no streams after the 1st mile, and hiking poles are huge here, I never use them but sure glad I did here or I would have landed on my rump a dozen times on the way down! We totaled 5400' of elevation gain and 14.4 miles on Strava report. Pics of journey can be seen here; https://www.instagram.com/p/CEiYiw_pmii/

Nice views and we were pretty much the only ones on the trail on a Sunday. The downside is the trail isn’t maintained well so a lot of walking through bushes and a ton of poison oak.

Parking lot fills up early! 13.5 miles from the parking lot, up and back on route 413. Suggest taking 413A at the top to the left, then looping back 413B on the way down. The views of Mt. Adams are amazing. This hike climbs all the way up without a break, but the forest sections are lush and ethereal. The burnt areas are great for photographers and wild berries and long purple flowers abound. Fast hiker, took about 2 hours up and 1.6 hours down.

I love this trail, but you cannot complete the loop . Closed past Larch mountain junction when you are heading down . Big sign .
