Early morning hike - 7am start time. Total hike took about 2.5 hours, and the 'steep' parts are during the last half of the hike before the falls.

Hike passes near ski lifts, and if you climb Umbrella Falls (paths on both sides), congrats - you've reached Mt Hood Ski Resort's parking lot!

7/13/17. What a lovely trail. We were able to see two waterfalls starting at the Elk Ridge Trailhead, Umbrella and Sahalie Falls. When you get to the road after Sahalie, go left on the road to car.

Mostly easy trail (first 2 miles is uphill and may be a little challenging for novice hikers). Went yesterday and while there were still patches of snow, no obstructions to doing entire loop.
