Be prepared for some serious wind up there!

This is a beautiful hike with multiple waterfalls, breathtaking views of the gorge, and some challenging terrain. Today the top of the trail was very muddy. There is a long section on the lower trail that is very rocky. Next time I will bring trekking poles.

Love this hike! Must do the lower portion too

Good hike, but check wind before you go. Exposed areas make it very chilly. Bundle up!

nice easy good day hike. not too crowded. fun in the snow.


This is the easiest and maybe one of the most beautiful trails in the gorge. Hoping it opens back up soon ❤️

Very well maintained trail, and had a decent time on the trail, but don't think I'd ever do it again. I liked the random farmland, that was honestly the neatest part.

This hike has been recommended to me several times and it was stunning. Beautiful in the winter but very very windy!! I was able to trail run the majority of it with my hyper pup - we will definitely be back! :-)

wind was crazy! the end of the "loop" ends on a road. head left, up the road, to meet back to the parking lot. walking in pavement for just under a mile.

One of my favorite ever hikes- So sad it’s closed! Feels like another world being surrounded by huge amounts of moss and greens while in a valley between the rock. Ugh. Absolutely love it. The falls at the end are worth visiting a thousand times over.

Great morning for a hike , no views due to fog, but a great trail!

Up to the lookout and back the same way us a good quick hike.

Closed. You cannot get into the park. It's blocked off by cones because of the fire. I tried to sneak in but was stopped by the park patrol. He said it isn't open until March.

Wasn't planning on doing this, actually didn't even know it existed! Stopped in at the Bonneville Campground to use the restroom and saw a sign for a trail, figured what the heck! Ended up taking it to the PCT connector and then to Gillett Lake! What a nice little find! Beautiful fall colors, nice change in scenery (forest to desert) and nice little lake at the end. Decent elevation gain, I think my gps read 1100' over 5.3 miles. Will def come back with my kids and overnight it at the lake!

Nice easy trail with great views!

Great hike but it's getting muddy!! Enjoy it now before the season ends!

Windy! Trail is cool, except the last 1.5 miles is walking down a street.

Hiked/ran this a few weeks ago; very nice mix of ecosystems along the way (forest, grassland, farm, lava rock, etc) but truthfully I don't feel like the views at 3 miles in were any different or more spectacular than the views at 1 mile in. The first portion of this hike is a real butt kicker (we attempted to run it and totally gassed out).

The middle section is awesome for running, with lots of rollers and some scenic flats.

The end however is miserable, so much traversing over sharp and wiggly rocks and then you end up at a road, a long, steep road until you finally re-enter the trail for about half a mile before finishing.

We went early on a Sunday and had little trail traffic but by the time we finished the parking lot was full and cars were lining the road.
