The weather was perfect. We did the loop counterclockwise.

A very nice trail regardless of the insane amount of switchbacks it has, I did it counter clockwise and I see why people say do it clockwise. Nonetheless its a great trail especially going down and seeing all the waterfalls along the way. I did the Wakeena Loop to Devil's Rest (which ended up being a pile of rocks sadly but I guess that's where the name came from), then back down to the Wakeena Loop and finishing off at the Multnomah Falls overlook and lodge. I seriously got buns of steel now from Devil's Rest.

My all time favorite hike on a hot sunny day especially! Runs along water and lots of waterfalls. Wahkeena Springs is beautiful also and just a short stop off main trail.

You can get to Devils Rest from a lot of the other trails along the Gorge. I took Whakeena Falls. It was so pretty and soothing to be hiking along the waterfall til the junction up Devils Rest. I agree with the rest of you guys, The end point was a little disappointing but do pat yourself on the back after you make it all the way, lol. Killer workout!

this hike was pretty fun! devils peak was a bit of a disappointment as far as WHAT youre hiking to goes, i recommend just hiking all the way to multnomah falls and loop back to your car. we did 10 miles i think in a couple hours, it was fun! good photos too

I did this as a training hike before a climb up St Helens. this trail has a beautiful waterfall to distract you from the steep ascent at the start. you gain most of the 3000 in the first couple miles. after that it was relatively flat and even easy. but the first bit is not for wimpy hikers. I recommend this hike.

Went on 11/03/16. Fall color finished peaking a week or 2 prior. Lots of recent rain made the waterfalls along this route quite spectacular. Some brief views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams as you ascend. Most of the hike is in closed canopy forest with some fairly large Doulas Fir scattered along the entire circuit. Get ready for how cool it is that Wahkeena Springs magically emerges right out of the ground. Most of the poison oak seems to be along the first mile or so. Remember to pack it out and stay safe.
