A pretty descent uphill! A few nice viewpoints of the Gorge with Mt Hood peeking through!

Tough trail. Bring some water and snacks. Careful on the way up some of the trail is muddy in the beginning. Some logs are on the trail as well so bear that in mind.

I love the hike. Beautiful and awesome. It’s kind of hard to go up but I really liked it.

Great day for a hike. Very little mud (which will probably change with the rain over the next few days). We took the steeper route to the right and the trails were in great shape!

View was very worth it. Trail was a bit confusing-definitely need a map or GPS to follow. Right side of loop is a lot more steep, but still recommend going up that side instead of down b/c it’s safer that way.

Slight ice and mud (brief section of snow at the ridge cutoff) but very manageable. As long as you’re not wearing non-traction shoes, you should be set

Nice trail. I would advise to take the right side first as it is steep and you get the most difficult part done first.

Love this hike! Right now, it is only a little muddy in places, snow at the top but not deep, and dry open trail in most places! Small parking lot gets crowded quick. Bathroom open. Good hiking boots needed for some slippery spots but we did it easily without micro spikes or trekking poles.

Love going up Nick Eaton, some snow on the cross over to Gordon. the fire really opened up some views.

Super nice hike! I would say go up the left side of the hike as the right side is definitely the extreme and way steeper side

A pretty hike and a great workout but I guess I’m spoiled by the usual gorge waterfalls.

Hiked January 20th. Third time up to the point but first time in knee deep snow. I knew to expect snow and decided against snow shoes which made for quiet the journey. It was a struggle at points especially up around 3000 ft and then taking the ridge trail (which didn’t exist). I had to make my own tracks in which was knee deep snow every step - talk about a workout. I made it to the point after scrambling down the hill from the trail in untouched snow. Enjoyed it for a while but i started to get cold and needed to craw my way back up the hill to the main trail. The steeper path with all the switchbacks was by far more snowy and difficult than the trail down which was nice. I love this hike and will likely use snow shoes next time. However it was very invigorating to make the entire trek in Nike running shoes.
