As of 3/3/2021 the loop to Sahalie and umbrella falls is only for the summer , the trails do not meet in the winter or is just hard to find even when you try to follow the green markers due to the fact that they are not all out there . Best thing to do is just do Sahalie falls then drive to tye big meadows parking lot and find umbrella falls which is just .5 miles from the parking lot .

Starting behind the Nordic center... Trail is not navigable in the winter, as it connects to Mt Hood Meadows Ski slopes... ski patrol will turn you back, as they don’t allow uphill hiking. Even if you manage to get passed them, the upper portion of the trail is covered in deep snow and requires snow shoes. Trail is not evident.

Did a brief out and back past the falls on Sahale Falls Trail. I started with Yak Trax from the parking lot and quickly turned back for my snow shoes due to sinking before getting to the trail. Once on the trail, it is mostly packed but I was glad to have my snow shoes for the sections that weren't.

Perfect snow. Lost the trail a bit and walked on the run, but the all trails map was helpful and got us back on track. Very few folks, stunning views is Mt. Hood

Beautiful hike and water fall. A few inches of snow on the ground and a bit icy in places. A few downed trees on the trail back (Sahale Falls trail) but they were easy to step over.

Awesome hike. We started this hike at 8 AM, hardly anyone on the trail. We ran into to two people and that’s when we were heading back towards the car.

HikingFeeGreat!

Beautiful hike, first part is mostly an incline but not terrible by any means. The falls themselves were gorgeous... Like the other reviews say, there are quite a few downed trees on the way back / seconds half, but I didn’t struggle with any of them & neither did my dog. You don’t get a view of the second falls (just hear it mostly) & this map does seem to randomly end at a road that isn’t where you started. You’ve gotta cross that road & hop back on the path - that’ll lead you back to the main lot on the other side (so it’s almost a loop)!

Beautiful hike with gorgeous views of both the snowy mountaintop and meadows below. Some elevation so be ready for a bit of calves and thighs work.

Hiked on 10/7. The trail from Elk Meadows to Umbrella Falls is good. Easy to follow and Umbrella is a really cool waterfall. The second part on the way to Sahalie falls is less exciting. There were about five trees down on the path making it difficult to climb over. You also don’t get a great view of Sahalie. NOTE: at the end, it drops you off on the street basically. The AllTrails loop isn’t really a loop so be aware.

GPS ended up taking me to the parking lot of a ski area. From there it was only a short walk down to the falls. After seeing the full trail map I feel like I cheated a bit but either way this is a beautiful cascading falls. Glad I was able to see it with a good bit of run off from snow melt back in June.

Very dusty but mild incline for the most part and a beautiful waterfall midway. You really can’t see Sahalie falls unless you go down to the road. There is a bathroom at the trailhead.

Couldn’t get to the falls on this day as there were a significant amount of bees and hornets in the overgrown part of the trail. As someone deathly allergic to bee stings I couldn’t risk it. Normally I would but the trail is narrow. I will try again another time
