A nice steep gorge loop with terrific views. Might get a bit muddy at spots. This trail requires a WA Discover Pass.

No snow at the top, a little bit muddy but not too slick! Incredible views

Hiked on 11/28/17. Did the loop but took Don’s Cutoff on our descent. It rained the whole time, but who cares when you’re prepared for it.

I love this hike! We took the Hardy way up and the original Hamilton trail back down for a 7.77 loop. If def go back and do more exploring on the Hardy Ridge side of the mountain.

Despite all the rain, the trail was very manageable with only a few big puddles and slippery spots. The views at the saddle were great despite the very low clouds and wind.

Will come back in the dry season so i can have a picnic up top!

hiking boots strongly recommended when it's wet out. trail is well maintained; it's worth checking out the side trails for better views of the gorge.

The trail is in great shape, lots of elevation to get to those gorgeous views. We started early (8:00am) thank goodness because this trail is heavily trafficked and there were loads of dogs, almost all off leash - fortunately we met most of them on the way down.
Even so, the gorge views and the beautiful fall colors made it worth every step of my first trip up Hamilton.

This is definitely a trail on the more difficult end of the moderate spectrum! However the trail is beautiful with plenty of sneak peaks at the view along the way.
