Hiking

Instead of going up Tomlike Mountain keep the left when you get toward the ridgecrest and go up the trail to the top of Chinidere Mountain! The views are amazing! Then double out back down the mountain and pick up where you left off and finish out the rest of the loop and it’s a little under 10 miles. A great hike!

Hiked up here to take photographs of the comet Neowise and had the best conversations I have had in months, with two separate groups of people.

A group of us were trying to access eagle creek and do the loop near the lake there, but was still closed off so we decided to hit this trail. This hike was a nice surprise because of the views and the workout you get from it. There is some elevation gain, but nothing too bad because of the distance of the hike. There was some bugs and mosquitoes, but otherwise everything was good. A little windy towards the top, but overall perfect sunny weather. We decided to keep up beyond the trail on PCT to get some miles in and then eventually came up through the loop around the lake. I would definitely recommend this trail for anyone and would suggest bringing a little lunch to enjoy the views of Mt Hood.

7-3-20 Nice easy stroll around Whatum. Forgot how amazing the view is from Chinidere. Loads of people camping at Whatum for the holiday weekend. Bugs for a bit in some muddy sections of the PCT. Protect yoself.

the mosquitoes are out! but i used bug spray and it wasnt too bad. The trail is a little hard to follow. My best way of explaining it woulf be to start by heading down towards the lake. You'll know you are going the right way if you see stairs. Once at bottom of stairs I suggest going right, its a gradual incline and easy to follow. Once you are at the intersection to go either back down to the lake or to the peak its easy to follow. Going back down the other way is pretty steep. Again you'll know youre going the right way if you come accross a log jam over water. Its fun to cross but be careful with your doggos! Both of mine fell in. From there you just continue to veer left until you are back to the stairs! I did see a blocked off section that was mentioned below but its for a different trail! The view at the top was worth it! Enjoy!!

Awesome hike! Some overgrowth and down branches that seem to be from winter storms. Pretty good shade most of the time. I recommend paying attention to the route it’d be easy to head down a campsite trail at the start or miss the trail up to the top. Most of the photos on here show the summit view of Mt. good but you can also see Rainier and St. Helens.

This is a great hike all around. Not too difficult for the payoff at the top but still a decent little workout. Good warm up hike for the summer season! Also a great trail for dogs. 10/10 recommend!

Amazing loop and easy to follow, although you do accidentally wander threw campsites, so be aware of that. For the views of the top and the beauty of the lake, it is such an easy payoff!

This is a beautiful hike with an incredible view at the top. HOWEVER, the trail completed disappears on the return loop, making it a difficult return.

I didn't download a map for this, i was trying to go to Herman creek falls, but somehow hiked the wrong direction. I read a review that said it was 2 miles upwards; steep at first then flattens out. this is not the case the trail is fairly steep the whole way, it didn't help I had my 30 pound 1 year old in the baby carrier on my back. I am a pretty experienced hiker and the singage is a tad misleading. okay hike not the best views if you go the wrong way ha ha.

The road in was snowy and icy, definitely a little sketchy! Lots of snow on the trail & super windy at the top. Still gorgeous, but probably not worth doing until the on-season.

This hike was a massive disappointment and did not live up to the photos on this site at all. In fact, I think some of the photos must be from a different hike. The vast majority of the hike is spent on an interior, viewless, fire-damaged trail. Do yourself a favor and do the Indian Point hike instead.

The trail is wide and steep for the first mile and a half and then for a good part of the rest you're going to be hiking with your arms up to keep branches out of your face. I only made a it a bit past Herman Creek Falls because it was not at all enjoyable. Took a detour to the Herman Creek Bridge on the way back and that area was pretty nice but overall I would not recommend this hike.

Great views at the top! Strongly disagree with the reading of Moderate. Be prepared for Steep And unstable terrain including a cliff of rock shards you must ascend and descend. Additionally, the trail tends to disappear intermittently when you get to the stem part, look for rock stacks to guide you. Strongly recommend downloading the gps map. Overall, worth it, but be prepared for some physical and mental challenges. Give yourself plenty of time. This trail is NOT currently closed (silly AllTrails) No snow or bugs for me
