Very very wet. Running water down the middle of the trail. After the third time of dropping into water over ankle deep, I bailed.

HikingMuddySnow

Fairly easy hike overall on well maintained trails. Some light mud and a dusting of snow when we were there but otherwise lovely trail. Lots of mushrooms and little lakes, gorgeous fall colors! The end point of Bear Lake wasn't spectacular; the lakes along the route had prettier views in my opinion. Definitely hunters in the area though we didn't encounter anything scary. Wouldn't likely go back during hunting season but maybe that's personal preference.

Great fall day hike, with brilliant yellows and oranges against the dark green forest. Well maintained trail, some creek crossings, beautiful alpine ponds and lakes. We got a light snow dusting on our way back. Dress for the weather!

BackpackingFloodedGreat!

Beautiful area, so many lakes, rivers and streams. Fall foliage is great. *warning: do not take the SW portion of the lollipop trail that this specific route is recorded. That is an old elk trail turned Fall creek bed. It is wet and very a very sensitive area. For a dry, nature friendly route, call the Mt Adams Ranger Station.

A wonderful hike with a lot of variety.. For my trip in mid October of 2020, there were tons of people, remnants of snow. and pretty dang chilly. But oh my word was it a beautiful way to spend a day. Long drive to get there for sure. But it is worth it. The trail conditions were not good. Once you’ve climbed to the plateau, the deeply rutted trail was a stream at times. Nothing out of control, but I had to keep a close eye on my footing - and the more I look at my boots, the less I am noticing mountain goats or the incredible autumn foliage (Keep in mind this is mid October and we had some serious rainfall last week). I still have to give this hike all possible stars. Gorgeous and unique area. Great views of Mt. Adams. Lemei Rock is stunning. The lakes, ponds, babbling brooks, Lake Wapiki. It is just awesome.

BackpackingGreat!

A beautiful, fall backpack. The colors were popping. Saw a lot of folks on the trail. Everyone was nice and respectful. Camped at Lake Wapiki. A Marten swung by my tent site for a visit. My second Marten sighting. Cool, little curious critter. Enjoy and be mindful of your fellow trail trekkers. Recreate responsibly. Cheers!

BackpackingGreat!

October 3-4, 2020. Perfect fall weather, clear skies, no rain, low 70’s, no wind! But, that brought out so many people. I estimate 200+ cars in trailhead parking lot, lining to road and in any little field possible. Still worth it. We skipped Elk Lake (never been there so don’t k know what we missed) to try Clear Lake, which we enjoyed. Lots and lots of awesome camping places in the various meadows; we passed many people camping this way. Lots of lakes so water is not really an issue. The trail that parallels the PCT was not as bad as expected. Sometimes it’s very deep (as in 12” to 18”) and a secondary trail has formed next to it. Otherwise not as bad as expected based upon reviews here. Lots of lakes we never saw. Can’t wait to got back.

HikingGreat!Muddy

I loved this trail. Especially since it’s fall and colors are more vibrant. It was beautiful. I was by myself and was feeling a little bit sketched out after I heard what sounded like a bear not far off from me so I only went in about 3.5 miles. I plan on going back and finishing. It’s an easy trail with just a few spots of incline. Not a lot of people. I ran into one hunter and two couples.

A nice walk in the woods, there are many camping opportunities at several subalpine lakes along the loop. 4 miles of the trail is relatively flat, and most of the it is free of roots-n-rocks. It is not scenic. There are a couple of peekaboo views of Mount Adams on the ridges going up and down.

Trail was great. There are certainly some slogs to it that warrant a hard designation but three relatively out of shape guys made it without a whole lot of problem. Spent the night at Lake Wapiki which was misty and cold all night. Got up this morning to a beautiful view and hike out. Great time.
