HikingGreat!Rocky

This might be my new all-time favorite hike. Beautiful, well-maintained trails, walking along the creek, wildflowers, open meadows, and of course incredible views of Three Fingered Jack and the South Sister. I clocked it at 8 miles with 2,500ft elevation gain. The climb up Three Fingered Jack is a bit challenging. I personally wouldn’t take kids up there. Hiking boots are good to have. I didn’t have trekking poles with me but they would have been useful. It was VERY windy at the top, the wind literally knocked me over at one point so be prepared for that. At the top you get stunning views of the glacier pool, mountain goats (yes!), and a 360 view of the whole landscape. It’s beautiful. I did this hike today and I already want to go back.

HikingGreat!

Nice views, fun walk around the lake. Great place to run as well. The bridge over the north contributor creek is still closed but there is a fairly easy way across the creek. You have to step up the huge log but it's very sturdy and not much balancing. Huge tree stumps all over the place.

This trail is pretty easy I even ran it, the trail and the views are pretty nice too. The only thing is the BUGS. I got MURDERED by mosquitos so maybe bring bug spray.

Difficult for our fitness level but we did it. Trail is well kept and I was so proud to see there was no garbage ANYWHERE!

Trail was easy! Hiked into shelters and around both lakes. Hiking partner and I helped build the shelters when we worked for the USFS back in the early 90’s. It was like going home again. Love the area. Full moon was the topper of the trip.

This trail isn’t well marked in some spots. It’s not hard but some areas are very rocky with full step ups and downs. Not for bad knees and elderly. Lots of people and trash but hey that’s portland area for you.

Good family hike. Dog friendly. Lots of campgrounds to cut through, though.

Did this trail on a Monday (8/03) in the afternoon. A lot of room in the parking lot. Following the loop on PCT first (to the left), I only passed one or two other people until I got closer to the lakes. Some deadfall along the way, but easy to hop over for most, yet could be challenging for some. Quite a lot of shade which was nice for the summer and the water is great for cooling off if you are hiking with dogs!

Trail has some nice switchbacks for about 3 miles as you slowly go up. The last mile was a real challenge for me but definitely doable! The calm clear water surrounded by granite walls was definitely worth the leg burner!!

BackpackingGreat!Rocky

Beautiful hike well worth the variety of scenery. halfway through just before the trail loops back above the glacier lake it does get steep and a little challenging to navigate with lots of loose rock. Would definitely advise bringing poles for this part of the hike, Boots wouldn't hurt either although decent hiking shoes can probably get it done. The drive-in is about 7 mi of gravel washboard roads with a lot of big rocks and potholes so it takes some time to get there once you're off pavement. As others have mentioned, the parking area seems to fill up quick even on a weekday, 11:30 a.m. on Friday and we had to park along the side of the road outside the parking area. Despite all the cars at the trailhead the trail was not congested but did get a little busy toward the loop back in the middle near the Glacier lake where many people choose to stop and rest before completing the hike, nothing unbearable though.

HikingGreat!

Hiked on 8/8/2020. I started at 6:15 AM amd the devil lake parking lost was almost full. The hike is intense but is worth it. A lot of people on the trail on Saturday. Last stretch/climb had loose gravel- i feel couple of times even with support of a pole.

The trail was well maintained. Get there early to avoid crowds and get parking. When I left at noon the parking lot was full with cars on the sides of the streets.

HikingGreat!

Great small hike! Our 9 year old, and 3.5 year old did it no problem! Our 2.5 year old enjoyed the walk and views from my back. Definitely bring your baby carrier for little littles, some parts of the trail are narrow and the sand/dirt is soft so might be difficult traction wise for inexperienced walkers. We also had our German Shepherd/lab with us, she had a blast as well. She did enjoy the water more than we did as it was “take your breath away” cold! Watch out for roots sticking up on the trail.

HikingGreat!

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. The reward, Green Lakes is stunning. Dip your toes in the water, cool off. AllTrails claims this hike to be 9 miles, it turned out to be more like 11 once you go around the lakes a bit. Worth it, but plan for more than 9 miles.

Trail was a challenging and good ride. Took Suttle Tie up to the lake and went around on the loop trail then back to where I started. Restaurant at the lake was nice to eat at.

Best of the best. The most beautiful place on Earth when the wildflowers are blooming. We went mid July during peak bloom season.
