You can do a full loop from the Skibowl parking lot. I parked there, and walked down to the Mirror Lake trailhead. From there, I hiked up to Tom Dick Harry. I then followed the ridge line trail that is not shown in AllTrails. That takes you to the top of the lifts at Skibowl. There are several roads and trails to follow down from there.

Overall a fun hike with nice views or Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Rainier and Helens.

Met a safety patrol guy from Skibowl on the ridge. Very cool and helpful.

beautiful lakes. loved the swimming at the lower lake and the quietness at the upper lake. there was only one other person at the upper lake.

Terrific weather, awesome views. Parking is limited so get there by 9:00 on a weekday.

View at the top was pretty good! On the way there was meh.

We made it to the top just before sunset! Great hike, a little over grown near the top. Will go back to camp and hike around the lake. Watch out for the morons who do not leash their dogs.

Great hike! worst part is walking the hwy from skibowl, since it is packed. but all in all it starts out in a dense beautiful forrest, with a bridge and big fallen logs. The sunlight leaks into the forrest with rays of gold. Slowly climbing to meet a beautiful serene lake that mirrors Mt. Hood in its reflection. At this point your body is still wanting more, so the ascent up to TDH is magical. You wind up mellow switchbacks, of lush forrest with wildflowers and views of the world around you. Many spots of Mt hood boldly looks at you as you climb, and then the trail flattens out. It becomes a serene walk thru the forest, everything seems to stop as butterflies join you on the final push. You see the clearing in the disctance and in no time you are there. atop a 360 degree view of the range. 6 mountains are there for your gaze. Looking straight at hood and mirror lake below. Ahh yess enjoy this hike and take it all in..for it is a glorious one! waiting for your footprints! also..dont leave trash..and pick shit up if you see any. Cheers!
