The hike takes you past a waterfall, up through rocks and oaks to another waterfall to get to some beautiful views. There is a lot of poison oak, so leave your pant legs on and don't let your hands dangle aimlessly into tall vegetation along the trail. There is an rock arch that seems out of place in the environment, don't plan on getting too close it is clearly marked off.
Loved the wild flowers. Great get away. We went April 26. Little traffic.
Fun hike that offers different types of great visual experiences. At the end of the hike I did brush off a tick from my son's clothing and killed it, so be aware of that type of situation happening.
Short and sweet, although we couldn't see much of the trail as there was so much snow. Nice view onto the Columbia river and gorge. This hike is probably nice when it's birding and wildflower season.
Beautiful. Easy hike.
Never saw a waterfall. Glad I had a map because the trail was difficult to follow. Very rocky. Great meadows of wild flowers and good views of the Hood River
green Meadows, nice hike
