Waterfall flow is amazing right now! I did a section of the Gravelle Brothers trail too, though didn't have time to do the whole thing. Lots of water on the trail in places, but it's otherwise in good shape. A few small steam crossings and a small trailside waterfall, very pretty. I was a little concerned about the road based on other reviews, but it was fine. I have a Subaru, but wouldn't hesitate to take a car with less clearance up there. It's a narrow gravel road, and yes there are potholes, but not many. With careful driving you'll be fine.

Don’t do this hike without snowshoes if you plan on doing the loop. 2.5 feet of snow where the map shows the highest elevation.

Left around 1. Mid 30s at trailhead, moderate rain. Turned to snow and slick after 1400'. Powder as you near the summit. Beautiful views. Very peaceful as it was snowing lightly but barely any wind. I would say there was about a foot of fresh snow but who knows. Big banks of snow have formed at certain points from wind so it's hard to tell. But most if not all ground vegetation is completely covered near summit. I was totally fine with microspikes today but you'll probably need snowshoes after this week's coming snowfall. Unless you don't mind postholing. It was snowing hard and sticking as I descended almost all the way back to the trailhead. This was about 4pm.

Muddy, but enjoyable hole for my dog and I. I logged 9.5 miles on my Apple Watch and 1500ft of gain, so the length and gain are a little off the description.

foggy with rain and snow today..microspikes were helpful coming down out of the snow..poles are recommended..

Incredibly steep, tough but the views were worth it! We made it to the summit with only a little whining from our 8 year old daughter :) Want to go back next spring so we can do the whole loop and see the flowers!

I took everyone’s advice and did this hike clockwise. Boy, the first 1.5 miles were rough, but I’m glad I was climbing up that stretch and not sliding down it! Definitely be prepared for the rough start but once you make it to the top and then do a bit more scrambling, the last 3-4 miles are quite pleasant! The trail is rocky/gravely and leafy enough that it doesn’t get muddy!

I'm a beginner hiker and this was by far the most remote to date but also thre most rewarding. Lots of great trails and options to make it a short or long hike. #50waterfallsby50

Beautiful hike that will get your heart pumping! Trail is maintained exceptionally well, view was amazing at the top, and few people on the trail which is good bc there is only parking room for roughly 10-15 cars. I made it up and back in about 2hrs 45 min at a fairly moderate walking pace.

Good condition, just damp enough to keep the rocks and gravel from rolling but not muddy. No snow except for small patches off the sides of the trail at the top. Clear skies and beautiful view! Could even see Hood today.

Completed this loop yesterday (Dec 27, 2019) and absolutely loved it. I was looking for a fresh breath of air as a hiker who hadn't been out in a while, and this trail is a perfect training hike for more advanced hikers working their way up to harder trails, or a really good challenge for less experienced hikers. This took me about 5 hours to complete, but I made multiple stops for photography, so I'd say anyone with a consistent pace can complete the loop in 3-4 hours No special gear is required, though poles are nice to keep your balance when moving over rocky segments. You will need waterproof shoes if you don't want your feet to get wet, because there are small streams you need to walk through along the upper part of the trail. Which way you go doesn't seem to matter much. If you want to see a gorgeous cascade in the headwaters of Gales Creek early on in the trail, I recommend going clockwise, though you will end with the steeper end. I went counter clockwise, so I started off easy. One last thing. I recommend taking this trail from the summit trailhead on Highway 6, especially if you don't have an AWD/4WD vehicle. The road up to the Storey Burn trailhead is very rough and is covered in potholes. All in all though, a wonderful hike with beautiful views!

Great views from the top. Solid workout to get to the summit. One viewpoint in the later half of the hike, which is the only real view you get besides the views at the top. Easy to follow trail. No snow at the end of December except for right near the summit, so don’t need snow gear.

I took the long way to get to the falls, but the falls were absolutely amazing.

Reached the top only to see fog. We still enjoyed the hike, it was challenging.

Fun, the muddy conditions made it more challenging. Recomend going this time of year.

Challenging trail because of the incline and navigating some terrain toward the end. Unfortunately I didn't get to see views at the top because of the fog, but it was still beautiful all the way up. Plus, a great leg workout! I was a bit wobbly coming down. Took a total of about 3 hours.
