Make sure you’re wearing snowshoes. People in hiking boots fall deep into the snow. The trail around the lake is hard to find. The new parking lit and trail head is to the right side when yuh enter Ski Bowl.

Attention!!!! HELP I was at the hot springs today 3/17 and think I left my camera memory card there. it would be on the wood platform (or fell down next to it). if anyone sees it, could you please grab it and contact me!! thank you!

My dad and I did this hike on a father daughter trip in April 2017. It was beautiful (a little wet) but so cool to walk through the "tunnel" under the waterfall. was surreal!

If you’re a beginner like me, you’ll definitely be sore from this one. You’ll also get some beautiful photos! It’s currently slippery in spots and muddy in other spots, so wear shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. Also, you may want a hiking pole or two. Loved it!

I have been on a lot of hikes to see waterfalls and this one was my favorite one so far! The waterfall was absolutely stunning and the views along the way were amazing as well. The hike took me about 4 hours to complete walking at a moderate pace so make sure you go early enough in the day. But definitely worth the hike!

My kids and I hiked from Indian Henry on Saturday, March 17. Unfortunately there was still a lot of ice and snow. Watch your step! This is one of my favorite hikes and I look forward to going on it again when the weather is a little warmer.

Cut a little short, might resemble another route, great day for an outing. Lots of maintenance to help with the upcoming months. Love this place, seems to be an annual event the last couple of years.

This hike is a must! Some areas were a little slippery from ice, thankfully they did have some fencing up in those areas that made it easy to hold onto and scale along the edges. Full parking lot but everyone was nicely dispersed along the trail. So worth it! Can’t wait to come back when the ice meltsn

It's near the end of the season, so put away your snowshoes and have a great walk down to the Lake. The road down to the day use area is fully compacted, and there is an easy foot trail from the road down to the Lake. I got down to the Lake about 7:15 to watch the sunrise over the mountain.

Pretty icey in a lot of the trail right now. Didn't have equipment so had to stop around the halfway mark. Would come back to do the whole thing in the summer -- pretty trail by the river.

Such a rewarding day hike!! The trail is easily accomplished in a day (pack a small lunch and plenty of water) but has a huge payoff! It seems like around every corner, there is a new waterfall. These waterfalls are massive and breathtaking. If you get within 30 feet of them, you can feel the intensity of the water. This trail isn’t difficult and has moderate elevation gains. The trail is very well maintained. When I visited the falls in the summer, there were hardly any people on the trail. I was astonished. This hike is truly unique. It isn’t particularly strenuous, but features gorgeous views. I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone in the Portland area.

The trail has major tree damage and is not usable at this time. Fallen trees are blocking access just across the footbridge. I look forward to this hike once it has been cleared.

Easy to moderate difficulty; definitely a beautiful hike...Part of trail can be muddy so be prepared. If you want beach access take the "South Trail" at trail head. Both hikes together are around 8 miles.

This is absolutely a coastal gem. I was able to hike here on a sunny weekend in January, and I was shocked by how peaceful this place was. The trail follows the top of the narrow ridge, and comes to an end at a stunning point surrounded by the ocean and Mountain scenery.

We arrived pretty early, but the large parking lot was full. I would recommend different pairs of shoes, since it is muddy and this is still a hike. I saw many families who wore flats, or nice city shoes, and were thus unprepared for the natural side of the hike.

Overall, this busy, beautiful hike is one that everyone should see. But, do to the busyness, I would not rate it perfect.

Beautiful hike and falls, only reason I gave it 3 stars is because of how crowded it is.

Did this one 3/15. Just enough snow yet to make it difficult, but also made for incredible views. Didn't do the whole loop at the top since the trail was pretty soupy with snowmelt. Would definitely visit again.

Packed snow for the whole way. The lake has some deeper snow that requires snow shoes for the most efficiency. Get there early as it’s not as much fun to share the trail.

First mile is completely uphill although it is a gradual rocky incline. Worth the climb once you get to top beautiful views. Treck down is soemwhat rigorous, slippery rocks, different levels, roots. What I had imagined a hike through the forest to be. Recommend real hiking shoes for grip on rocks. Not for beginners for sure. Almost slipped/rolled ankle a few times.

The falls are worth the walk!

Great trail, not too long or steep. Summit leaves a bit to be desired.

Cross country ski trail (shared with snowmobilers). Wide open vistas of Mt. Washington and Three Fingered Jack. Turn around at Big Lake. Easy, minimal elevation gain.

Elk Creek Trail Head to Kings Mountain Trail Head out and back

I've hiked this section of the MRNRT 3 times; once in Spring, once in Summer, once in Fall. Spring is gorgeous with high water flow and occasional cloud cover which makes for stellar photographs. Summer is hot, dusty, and crowded, not ideal unless you're a swimmer.

Fall is when this trail really shines. The foliage comes ablaze and is a wonderful contrast to the clear, aquamarine water. Best of all most of the summer crowds will have subsided by this point -- it's not unlikely there can be days where you have most of the trail to yourself. Bring bug repellent! The section between Carmen Reservoir and Blue Pool is loaded with MASSIVE mosquitoes!

We took the inland side of the trail first. It's a wide and steep path which will get your heart pumping and your lungs working by the time you get to the top. Once at the top it's a short additional walk to the viewpoint. The coast side trail coming back is narrower, a steep decline in some places, and on our trip very muddy in some areas. There are many areas of heavy tree roots on the trail so watch your footing. Overall this is a decent trail but there are only a few viewpoints of the beach and ocean below you.
