I've hiked 100s of miles in Oregon, and this was one of the most challenging, yet most rewarding hikes yet! Great views, great weather, quiet nights, no bugs (that bothered me anyways). I hiked the loop in 49 hours (25 hours of hiking)... and could barely walk through the parking lot to my car. I will plan on 3 nights next time!

Great trail. Is vigorous and exhausting but not impossible. Friendly people along the way. People are very respectful about wearing masks. Dipping your feet in the cold Stream is a must.

HikingOver grownRocky

The falls is beautiful the scenery along the trail is amazing. I arrived at the trail head at 9:30 there were only two other cars in the lot. On the trail I only passed a total of 6 people. Near the falls there was maybe 15 people total in the hour I was there. About 90% of people were wearing masks. To echo what others have said I definitely logged more than the listed 8.6 miles on both my AllTrails and Apple Watch. There’s a dense overgrowth a little over a mile before youhit the falls. It’s manageable but not super enjoyable. And I would not bring my dog on the trail because of the rocks.I took a star off because the trail runs parallel to the Clackamas River, which is great, buy the Highway also runs parallel on the opposite side of the river. If you’re looking for a hike that will make you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, the traffic sounds really defeat that purpose.

Backpacking

An epic, beautiful, challenging, 3 night, 4 day solo backpack around Mt. Hood. The elevation gain combined with a 34 pound pack made this a butt burner. My advice. Go as light as you can. I brought several things that I barely used, like a tripod for my camera that wish I had left at home. Besides the elevation you’ll climb, there are some challenging creek crossings. Be cautious and do your research. I found it better to get my boots wet than risk a fall from jumping rocks or crossing on narrow logs. Sandals with straps would be helpful if you’re willing to add the weight. With that said, this is one of the most beautiful hikes that I’ve ever done. You won’t be disappointed. Recording Notes: I used a Garmin Instinct in UltraTrac mode to record the route. Hence, the craziness of the track. UltraTrac saves battery life by not laying down as many tracking points.

Went to watch the sunrise around 5:30am, not really a hike but gorgeous views and we had the place pretty much to ourselves.

Great hike if you like pine trees. Trail is dry, cool, and shady. Other than some campers around the lake didn’t pass many other people on a weekday.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful little lake/pool with brilliant blue water. I went in the late afternoon (8/9/20) and really enjoyed the colors of the pool and surrounding area at that time. The road to the campground is a bit rough but is passable even with a smaller sedan. Be very careful with some of the potholes though because they can get pretty deep. The walk to the lake is very short and the water is freezing. Very cool experience.

BackpackingGreat!

I’m a novice backpacker and had a great time doing a lazy overnight at this spot. We started around noon (mid August) and while it was quite warm and all uphill, there was plenty of shade. Despite previous reviews, the bugs were not bad at all for us. I have less than 15 bug bites. Red lake was pretty, but not super inviting to swim in. Averill Lake was only 1/2 mile past Red Lake and had one great campsite just off the trail and multiple small ones. We arrived on a Sunday so we had the whole lake to ourselves. We waded out until it was about 6’ deep and the water was crystal clear. I will definitely be back, and want to see more of the lakes!

Very enjoyable waterside coverage to both start and end the hike. Great spaces for camping, and beginner backpacking.

HikingGreat!

Fun and challenging. Easy route to navigate. Trail does get narrow and steep past the meadow, so watch your footing. Once you're out of the trees, the trail is surrounded by wild flowers. The snow melt made for some nice waterfall views. Should also be careful if proceeding up the rocks. The mud underneath is soft and rock slides can occur. I heard a rock slide and am glad was nowhere near the action.

No water at cloudcap and don't count on finding a camp spot at Elk Cove on a Friday afternoon, it was absolutely packed. Water crossings were all way easier than normal.

Hiking

Very beautiful trail, and very challenging. Did it in 4 days and 3 nights. First night started late and only did about 5.5 miles and stayed at a nice waterfall. second night, according to the app it was only 15mi to our next camp spot of elk cove but we ended up doing 17 miles that day to get there! 3rd night we planned on staying at newton creek, but heard it was full from a passerby so we took a mile detour to elk meadows, very nice with lots of campsites and we were the only ones there. Only had to take shoes off to cross one river later in the day. All trails says it’s only 41 miles but clocked me at 47, GPS at 45 or 46! Plenty of water everywhere, but a very busy trail so don’t expect to see any wildlife besides chipmunks. Overall, only docking a star because the trail has a lot of fallen trees and can be unclear at river crossings. Didn’t really have a problem with bugs except for one day with flies.

Hiking

We hiked 4 miles out and 4 miles back on the timberline trail starting at timberline lodge. It was pretty challenging but the views were great. Crossing the creek at the 2 mile mark was a fun little challenge as there was not very clear markers but it was fun to blaze our own path. The hike up past the creek was the hardest part as the elevation gain is the most intense but great views! All around great day hike that’ll take you 4-5 hours.

This trail is pretty easy I even ran it, the trail and the views are pretty nice too. The only thing is the BUGS. I got MURDERED by mosquitos so maybe bring bug spray.
