Not a bad little hike! Pretty cool views at the 'top'. Lots of mountain bikers so beware if you're on foot!

We did this just yesterday. It is difficult to know when u cross the Dog River because that is a stream passing under a bridge. So we kept walking and we reached the other end of the highway. So point to point it was nearly 7 miles ie 7 miles one way. Coming back 7 miles is all the way up hill which can be very strenuous. However the trail is quite and secluded and offers some great views of Mt. Hood.

Was nice but far too many mountain bikers to really enjoy. Almost got ran off the trail 3 times from bikers zipping down the trail. I wouldn't rate this as super hard.

We did this hike as a shuttle between Dog River TH and the Zigzag TH. One way is 7 miles.

We set out to trail run this trail, the footing was fine but the steady incline caused us to do some walking. Not a whole lot to see but a pretty creek crossing and one spectacular view of Mt. Hood!
