First time hiked this trail. The view is so beautiful in winter. Driving there was a challenge, but it was so much fun. The road is covered by ice and snow. You need an 4x4 or an AWD car to get to the trailhead + make sure you have your snow chains with you. My car is Subaru Lagacy Outback. Its clearance was not enough in some parts. I know how to drive on snowy roads, so I didn't have much trouble. The trail: First 0.5 mile of the trail is easy to hike and crowded. It seems like people come here to take their Christmas trees. Between the 0.5 and 1 mile section there is so much powdery snow on the trail. After 1 mile, the ground is frozen, so it is considerably easier to hike. There are fallen and about to fall trees everywhere. I had to stop after 2 miles. All in all, it was a fun day.

There was no snow anywhere on this hike as of Saturday, October, 28, 2017. There were some puddles in the road at Lolo Pass but the trail was dry with only a few logs across it. There was about 100 feet of muddy trail on the north side of Bald Mountain if you choose to extend this hike a bit and loop around Bald Mountain.

I did this hike about a week ago with my dog and he loved it! There was definitely a lot of snow and so we could only get so far without proper gear but it was still incredibly peaceful and gorgeous. I will definitely be coming back again!

This hike was INCREDIBLE. I have no idea why the app says best times to go are June and July. Fall foliage was stunning, cooler temperatures and some wind made for zero bugs and not a cloud in the sky. Will go back and do this one again and again!!

Gorgeous. Much busier later in the morning. We started just before 9 and it was getting quite warm by the end. Recommend starting earlier.

The view point is pretty amazing. The hike itself is not to bad. Tons of bugs recommend bringing bug spray. Only thing not giving it 5 stars is there's a parking lot right near the view point you can park at. Not much on the trail so if you want just the view I recommend doing Top Spur instead.

The hike to the Mt Hood viewpoint on Bald Mountain is easy and breathtaking!
