One of the most popular climbs in the Columbia Gorge with great views of both Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams and the Columbia. This is a wonderful climb in teh Columbia Gorge with great views from the many cliffs and ledges near the top of Mt. Hood, Adams and the Columbia River. There is a side catwalk trail you can take along the way and even a beautiful waterfall with bridge viewpoint. I don't want to give away too much as being surprised is always better. Bring a camera!

Fun hike. There's a spot right after Hardy Falls where a tree fell and wiped out the trail/steps. It was very muddy but totally passable when we were there. This hike is a nice mix of woods, waterfall, and Gorge vistas framed by rock formations.

Beautiful trail with multiple waterfalls and nice gorge views. The trail has been closed since 1/30 while repairs on a bridge section are being conducted because of a land slide. Trail is open up to Hardy Falls, well worth it for a short day hike.

It was a rainy/foggy day and the falls were roaring. Didn't have time to hike the full trail, but made it to Pool of the Winds. Very nice.

Better than dog. Even with the rain, a great hike but views can be sketchy with cloud coverage. Nice to complete the hike with a climb of Beacon.

If you have some free time and don't mind spending about two to four hours hiking to beautiful lookout points of the Columbia Gorge; I would have to recommend this hike! The trail is moderate to a novice hiker like myself, there is some steep parts to the trail, but nothing too challenging. The Pool of the Winds was pretty amazing and fun spot to cool off before you trek up the mountain to more look out points. I decided to hike the whole loop on a weekday and there wasn't any foot traffic. The views are totally worth the 6.9 miles, trust me!
