Tough! First mile was pretty packed snow/could have been spikes but def needed snow shoes second mile. Tough sideways stepping on the ridge line. Fairly easy to follow blazes and direction of trail even w fresh snow! Spent the night at the cabin with reservations, major fun!

Started out windy and pelting ice, but ended calm and lovely.

Trail was a mix of packed snow (first half) to fresh snow (back half) to Tilly Jane shelter. We didn’t bring snow shoes, which we ended up regretting the last half of the hike (we were stepping through foot deep snow). Would highly recommend bringing snow shoes or skinning up and skiing back down. We went on a cloudy day but still had a great time (minus sinking down into the snow). Was a bit steeper than I expected but overall recommend.

This lives up to its rating--it was hard. We encountered brutal wind gusts on the ridge after the tree line that knocked us off our feet (and pelted our faces with snow). After that part, we walked along the side of a hill (while still ascending) and it really threw off my posture/balance to have one foot higher than the other while walking along the side (if that makes sense). My muscles were on fire from the elevation gain, especially the last bit up to the cabin. I'm pretty active and healthy, but this was a rough one for me! We made it up to the cabin and I'm glad we did. The views at the top are stunning and we encountered very few people all day. But I probably won't do this one again.

Good trail but we had very poor conditions and 30-35 mph gusts above tree line. Did it with my 10 yo though and we made it to the a frame.

Great workout. We did it on snowshoes. 1:45 up to the cabins, 1:00 back. The part where the fire happened is super windy.

I did not do this the whole way because I was alone and started late. Only micro spikes are needed for the bottom... above the tree line you will want snow shoes. I post holed once I started climbing. The cloud cap road was ok ... if you have a AWD should be ok... snow on the road but not bad or need for a lot of clearance yet. Beautiful area! Can’t wait to do the whole thing :-)

On 11/3, the Mt. Hood Ranger District said this trail is open. They said that on Nov. 1 the road to Cloud Cap was closed beyond the Tilly Jane trail head for the season to protect the fragile road surface from vehicle damage. We passed on this hike last weekend based on the "CLOSED" comment here.

This was a hard hike for me but the views were fabulous. It was a lot of elevation change. It was easy to find. The trail is cool and shady for the first third and then it goes through and old burn and is hot and dusty, very dusty. I probably won’t do this hike again until I forget how hot it was. I expected it to be much cooler up there at that elevation. We stopped at Solera Brewery in Parkdale afterwards and that hit the spot.

HikingGreat!No shade

Was my first solo overnight when I was 15 and been doing it like every year since. About to leave home so came back one last time (at least for a while) with a couple friends and hiked from Cloud Cap Inn to the treeline to camp. Tilly Jane trail itself is usually pretty dusty in the summer, but definitely nice wandering through the burn. Would recommend to hike this during sunrise or later in the day when the light starts getting dynamic (especially with the ghost trees). Also, make sure you continue past the lodge and up towards the end of the treeline as since that's where you really start seeing Hood and the valley beneath you.
