This trail is not for beginners. Very little of the trail is shaded. Most is over dry lava beds with extremely uneven footing so wear really good ankle supporting footwear with thick soles. Carry plenty of water. Worth the trek for those looking for a challenge!

This section of trail has an awesome view of mt Jefferson, three fingered Jack, mt Washington and mt hood (off in the distance). This view makes the rest of this (ok) trail worth it!

First to Review

Excellent stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail. We hiked from Timberline Lodge to Paradise Park Loop (9miles round trip). We hung out double hammock and took a nap. Capped the day with an amazing Pizza in the Blue Ox bar inside Timberline Lodge. A fair amount of snow on the trail July 3rd 2016. Easy to navigate.
