a long steady climb. I like the trail, it's a nice gentle grade. it's a pretty forest hike that leads to a fantastic view at the top. the trail is clear and easy to follow. to get to TH go across the bridge, to the end of the road. I started down salmon river trail at first.

Went on Sunday, great hike as always. Hiked along the ridge at the top for awhile to get a closer view of Mt Jefferson. Would like to try to hike the ridge all the way to Park Ridge sometime..

The hike up to the upper falls is quite steep and can get rocky. Its pretty easy for the avid hiker but it can get a little tough for older patrons or people with knee/ankle problems. Beautiful falls at the top tho! The lower falls is a very easy paved path. Finding parking was a bear but the hike is very much worth it!

Beautiful lake. It was quite foggy so we saw the mountain on and off in the distance and we didn’t get to see much of the mirror but it was breathtaking either way! I would definitely recommend. It can get pretty steep on the way up and rocky so make sure to watch your footing.

Bring bug spray. Lots of mosquitos. Relatively flat easy hike, nice fall at the end.

The lakes are still beautiful. Lots of fire damage on the short hike up to the first lake (1.25 mi), but the lakes were preserved pretty well. Mosquitos were moderate.

I was at Todd lake today the gate is still locked.

Very easy, beautiful hike. What w wonderful view and reflection if Mount Hood!

This was a moderate hike with a beautiful lake and a reflection of Mount Hood. You might want to put on bug spray. The mosquitoes were pretty thick by the lake.
I was also amazed at the number of wild rhododendron flowers along the trail.

Awesome trail. Hiked from Grave creek to horseshoe bend where we camped for the night. Did a day hike starting late our second day to Kelsie creek to fish and swim. Then hiked out our third day. Beautiful weather and gorgeous views. Loved the challenge of the hike and immediately wanted more. Next time we are hiking the entirety of the trail.

Such a beautiful lake! Deserted on the Summer Solstice, clear water, bright white fluffy clouds. We were happy to discover the road that goes to within half a mile, thought we’d never get there because previously we had accessed the lake from Bonney Meadows above. The road to Bonney Meadows is now only 4-wheel drive accessible. Anyway, we hiked up to the Meadows. We saw an osprey at the lake diving for fish. All in all a perfect day and lovely lake.

Awesome for almost all ages. A great pot of gold at the end of the trail!

Started at 8am on a Saturday and only passed 3 groups of hikers. Falls were very impressive. It really is like Multnomah Falls without the crowds. Good elevation changes. Not too steep. Lots of overgrown bushes so wear something to protect your legs. Saw newts, snakes and elk along the trail. There is some traffic noise along the trail, but don't let that deter you. The sights along the trail far outweigh the traffic noise.

No snow as of 6/21. Easy to follow pretty much the whole way, just pay attention to the signs

This is an amazing, but difficult hike. I highly recommend hiking poles for both down and up. The reward is breathtaking views down and at lakes edge. The water is the most clear I’ve ever seen! The water was cold 42 degrees today, but felt good on tired feet! The hike up took us a hour, but we stopped often. Pack light, but take food and water. And if you are crazy enough to swim, take a towel, because you can jump off cliffs into the cleanest lake in the US, maybe the world.

Nice trail. There are a couple of adjoining trails also but I didn't take either of them. Super close to south beach state park, which also has good trails. Trailhead is marked but didn't see signage from 101. On SE 50th street , east from 101.

One of the most beautiful hikes I have done in Oregon. It was a bit of a challenge but worth it at the end.

More of an easy hike, rather than a moderate hike, and that’s coming from a 70 year old. Our dog had a great time swimming in the Williamson River.

So there are two different ways to get to Moraine Lake. You can go on the south Sister trail to the junction with Moraine Lake trail. This way is pretty steep in places but you do get a pretty dramatic view when you get to the Moraine Lake trail. The other way is to go on the Green Lakes trail for about 2 miles until it meets up with the Moraine Lake trail. This way is my favorite - the grade is much easier and the trail is a lot more scenic. Also on the Green Lakes trail when you get a little more than a half mile in follow a small side trail downstream for a peek at the redundantly named but quite dramatic Falls Creek Falls.

Diverse terrain. It starts in the forest and opens up. Lots of wildflowers late into the season. No grizzlies, but I did see a black bear a couple of years ago!

brilliant! good trail, couple steep spots, amazing views, flowers trees birds beautiful!

backpacking

I just went for a solo backpacking trip on the west side of the loop. I made it as far as Music Creek. This trail seems moderately trafficked for the first six or seven miles. After that it’s full-on bushwhacking. Many good camping spots along the river are to be found. Saw sign of coyote, deer, bear, cougar, and wolves. The rangers warned of mosquitoes, but they didn’t bother me at all. Ticks were a real problem, though.

I’m grateful I did this hike last year when I was able to. It wasn’t in my original plan, to do this hike but to hear, it’s closed, I’m so happy I did. The trial is mostly up hill not too bad let’s just say I made it up and that’s all that matters. Once at the top it all worth it and I was all smiles. I saw an eagles nest on the way down, chipmunks, got chance to taste the water, and the upper view of the waterfall was simply Amazing. When it opens back up I will definitely do it again.

I love coming here and going off the trail to explore. Very beautiful and relaxing with the sound of little waterfalls all over, and I've had the fortune of not running into anyone here. The only problem is that sometime over the last winter the road is too much for my low clearance vehicle to go through.

This was a beautiful hike the whole way with the gorgeous reward of Aneroid lake at the end. First two miles are steepish but after that it gently climbs. We did this on 6/22/18. Small snow patches up near the lake. The top 3 miles of the trail are ok for somewhat technical trail running. We ran down from the lake for about 4 miles but that last mile was we’re rocky.

I was not expecting to do the NF-715 trail. My intent was to do Pup Creek Falls but couldn't find the trail head. My Texas Heeler, Geena and I trekked this one. We made it to mile marker 3. The ups are no joke. With a narrow trail in some spots and rolling rocks, I thought for her first official hike, while carrying her backpack she did really well.

Great trail, but a bit on the easy side. it was a bit foggy, but I'm sure the view is breathtaking when it's clear! nicely groomed trail. Good trail for a family hike.

Well maintained park with lots or trails, both paved and not. I took the trail along the river that goes into Eola Bend park.

This is a city park, the views are not the same as those at our more remote locations and coastal hikes, but for a quick outing, this place is great.

I just hiked it this week and there is a lot of snow for the last 2 miles. It can be tricky to find the trail, but I was able to manage thanks to a previous hiker's tracks. The view at the top is INCREDIBLE, I had the whole trail to myself. One note on the road to the trailhead: it's heavily eroded and I would not recommend low to the ground cars to attempt it. When you drive it you'll know what I mean ;)
