6/4/20 Lots of deadfall on the trail and the mosquitoes are ramping up! Normally I would give this trail a higher rating. It was lovely last fall.

Trail is in great shape! Only a couple small snow patches to cross. Maybe 1 or two trees across the trail in the whole loop. Wildflowers were going!

Absolutely stunning trail- we started at Sahalie Falls and worked our way down the trail with the stairs to Koosah Falls. New railings being put in, but still accessible. The waterfalls are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen, and the water is a gorgeous shade of blue with lush green moss covering all the trees and rocks. Super easy, quick little trail and although we didn’t do the whole thing as we were short on time, it’s one of our favorite places we’ve visited so far!

Koosah is closed due to construction (I saw nice new wooden railings are being installed :) ) Else the waterfall and river view & short hike around Sahalie falls were awesome!

Relaxing hike minus the blowdown. The views were nice, but most of it was just through woods and the blowdown was pretty ridiculous in some sections. Gorgeous lake, but nothing crazy. Very easy hike.

nice view, steep at the last part. Be careful of poison oak sometimes close to or even sticking out in trail. Also, I saw bear crap and bear tracks as I was heading back down in the afternoon. It made me a little weary. closer to bottom.

Super worth it in the end. Gotta work ur butt off the whole time tho. LOOVED it. We did roster rock up and came down trout creek trail and finished on the high way (a little longer than we thought) in totally 9 and a half miles. Easy parking. Super fun

Nothing but up here! nice steady incline for the first few miles. towards the end it gets steep. nice view from the top saw the south and middle sister. tried to sit and have a picnic at the top but lots of big red ants all over the rocks so not really a good place to sit. worth it! trail is cut out very easy to follow. pretty narrow path though.

Good trail, unfortunately though the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting due to the covid shutdowns - I’m talking poop on the walls disgusting. Also, the loop was closed part way through which wasn’t posted at the beginning of the trail which meant we walked about a mile only to come to the trail roped off and construction crews telling us to turn around. Had to take an alternate route (thanks to a camp host at neighboring campground) to find the way back to the car. Other than those things mentioned it was a good hike with pretty views

Beautiful lakes! Great fishing. So many blow downs for hiking in with packs. Posted a pic of some downed trees for perspective. It’s kind of ridiculous how many.

Great easy trail with beautiful views!

Great hike with an awesome view of Three Fingered Jack! Would have given it a 5 but there are a lot of downed trees across the trail which were blocking the way. Still made it through with a dog though. At around .75 miles there is a particularly bad patch of downed trees and we got lost from the trail for approximately 20 minutes. Look for orange ties that other hikers have left behind to help you stay on track in this area. No snow and otherwise pretty easy and beautiful!

trail to browder's ridge is well marked and was beautiful at the top. there were a few patches of snow and several trees down that we had to navigate but not bad. once you get past the ridge to go to the lake, the snow was much worse. we were not able to go down to the lake due to no trail markings and tough terrain from all the snow. would love to try it again later in the summer when hopefully the trail would be easier to see.

Patchy snow but nothing crazy, dog did just fine. Little to no shade as it is a burn area, but the lakes are pretty full.

Saw a large bear on 5/27/2020 near the trail. He was in the large semi-flat meadow near where Gate Creek Trail joins Browder Ridge Trail. He was an impressive sight as he ran away from us. The Browder Ridge portion of the trail still had quite a bit of snow on it, making it hard to follow. We didn’t go all the way to the summit. Spectacular views, especially from the meadow where we encountered the bear.

Few nasty patches of trees down. Stayed the night with the place all to ourselves. Some areas closed to camp for restoration, follow posted signs!

Agreed, too much snow still when I went May 28th and 1 persons steps led to a turn around spot probably 1/4 mile from top! Needs 3 weeks of warm weather to get up there safely.

Great afternoon hike.

Amazing hike from clear lake trail to waterfall trail which encompassed Sahalie falls, Koosah falls and the Mckenzie River reservoir. After the reservoir you connect to the Mckenzie trail which hikes the other side of the river that has even better views. At the end you connect back to the clear lake trail and head back to car. Lush green forest, lake and blue river.

5/25/2020- there was still too much snow to safely navigate to the summit without the right gear. The trail was completely buried about a half mile from the top, making route finding challenging. It would probably be wise to wait until mid June to try again.
