The view was nice but the trail was not. Didn’t finish entire hike. Cuts losses and headed back to car on elder road.

The climb up the fire road was uninteresting and not technical, but steep so it offers a good workout. Pretty rough with loose rock so, hard to run this section. Views of Adams and the Gorge and Hood when you get to the top are stellar.

15/July/2019. My daughter and I hiked this trail and at the very beginning it was a good climb uphill and thereafter was pretty moderate with a variety of vegetation, trees, and plants. We saw wildlife to include approximately eight turkeys. We both enjoyed it however the trail is not well marked so you must use good land navigation or have a GPS. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a moderate difficulty trail with a variety of terrain and vegetation.

Great hike. We started by going uphill and saw great views of Rainer, St Helens and Hood. When we met back with the road, we ended up ending the loop early and taking it back down since the other trail seemed a little more difficult to see.

Beautiful viewpoint of the Hood River valley. You can see Mt Hood to Mt Adams. Much diversity in landscape when you do the loop. We did not see another person along the entire tail.

We saw lazuli buntings, black headed grossbeaks, western tanagers, and a pileated woodpecker to name a few, on this hike! Great wildflowers and glorious views of Mt. Hood and the Colombia Gorge
