very short, very beautiful walk. If you go past the lake and through the gate you can get to the Timothy Lake loop.

Meh...it’s just long. No viewpoints, no waterfalls, no river vistas. Just a 10+ mile walk in the woods. It is good if you like solitude because you won’t run into a soul once you split from the PCT. the mini crater lake was kinda cool I guess

The sky was really clear today and that allowed us to enjoy the beautiful views from here. The trial is moderate, well maintained. Not dogs allowed.

Went for a bike ride. It’s a nice park, just be ware of cyclist heading in the opposite direction on the path since it’s just the right size for two cyclist in most areas.

Did this hike today and it was awesome. Worth the drive from Bend. We went on past Fall Creek Falls up to Vivian Lake. We were early enough that we had the whole Lake to ourself, found the sand bar that lets you walk to the middle of the lake and took a swim. In the end it was 9.4 miles total. Definitely a must see.

Leave early, bring lots of water and don’t bring your dogs. Take your time. This was my first Mountain with high elevation gain and I took it slow. We left at 6 am and got back around 4:40 pm. Beautiful butterflies at the top. The smoke was a bit intense and didn’t let us see far out views but it was still rewarding.

Not sure why this trail is rated easy and Rho Ridge is rated hard?? (Hawk My is the harder part of Rho Ridge...) worth the work to get to the top, see the historic shelter, sign the book and check out the views.

Be careful when going to green peak falls. Just beyond the last tree on the trail right before the falls under the log right ahead is a ground wasp nest. They attacked our group and endured many stings but we got out ok. I wouldn't recommend bringing kiddos or dogs to the green peak falls.

love this trail. easy to follow. challenging to do.

Breathtaking views at the top. I agree with the moderate rating- incline was steady but definitely manageable for a moderately-experienced hiker. Bring sunscreen for the top because there's no shade. If you love this hike, you'll also love Tolmie Peak at Mt. Rainier National Park.

Relatively easy hike to the lake, which offered a one-of-a-kind view w/ the reflection of the Mt on the water. If you're up for it, I'd highly recommend going up Tom Dick and Harry Mt. It's well worth the time, distance, and incline for the breathtaking view at the top. All-in-all, I spent about 4 hours on the trail. As others have said, get there early, parking is slim.

This is one of my favourites. Summer it’s beautiful and winter it’s one of the nicest snow shoe hikes. Not busy at all today. The pups got some water time in the lower twin. A few bees here and there. Happy to be back

nice, easy little warm up

I’m from Florida so this mountain was tough!!!! The elevation was hard on me. It just gets worst the higher up you go. I took two poles and thank god I did. They saved me twice from falling coming down. Bring lots of water and snacks!!

My 1st time there. Took my dogs and did about 5 miles. Beautiful options and lots of trails, i’ll definitely go back and figure out the trail system better because we went a bit off course on accident and that always makes me nervous!

Fun trail

Fun hike. Started at Indian Beach parking lot and did the Tillamook Head out & back. The trail is a little muddy in places but it’s a rain forest so no big surprise. I’d wear some sort of hiking or trail shoe/boot just for the added traction.

My favorite of all

Great views and a wonderful hike!!!

beautiful and easy little hike.

Beautiful little beach and easy to navigate to. Easy hiking.

Hiked from Oswald west parking area to elk trail across the bridge, to devils cauldron, to north neahkahnie mountain trail, then went down on the west side and finished on the 101 going back to Oswald west parking area. The north side of the trail is over 60% over grown, the trail is very narrow and when it's not overgrown there are gnarly tree roots to cross with steep drop offs. In the beginning the trail was very slippery. The west side of the trail was a lot more easier and I saw many people and dogs on the west side. On the north side I only came across 2 other hikers.

This hike is more moderate to hard. In the beginning the trail is tiny and there are steep drop offs where if you are not careful with your footing you could easily fall and be injured. I started this hike late in the day 1pm on 7/9/18, it was 90 degrees outside with very small amounts of shade and no wind very hot! I did not finish this trail, but will definitely be back to finish it as an early am hike when there is no heat. The trail is also very rocky. It follows through a dried up creek bed in the canyon and may lead around the mountain you can see from the road. This is not an easy hike.

I would call this hike more moderate than hard. I did this one early yesterday morning 7/10/18. I did an 8.6 mile loop trail. There are beautiful wildflowers. The trail is good for bikers, hikers, dogs on leash and horses. There is a snow shelter close to the top stocked with plenty of water. The views yesterday were hazy but on a clear day you could get some great shots of three sisters, Jefferson and some other mountains. I didn't see any wild horses on my hike, but they are out there. I did motherload mine trail (which was more steep than the descent on independent mine trail. I made a big loop trail out of this. Motherload mine trail to lookout mountain trail to independent mine trail. I was looking for the mining town, but didn't find it till I ended the trail on the road. baneberry trail will take you to the independent mine, the trail is very overgrown and wet. there were also lot of mosquitoes out when I went so put your bug spray on before you hit the trail, If you are like me and the squeeters love you.

My brother, a niece, a nephew and two girl friends and I set out to do this trail on Aug 9-13th. We stayed that long but didn’t finish the loop. We started at Lava Camp lake trailhead. We started way too late in the day and by brother became overheated to the point of stopping. South Matthieu lake was our stop. We decided to set out to finish the first days 3 miles as well as the second days 10. Needless to say we only made it to Soap Creek. By then I was suffering with many blisters. Instead of continuing on we set up camp and headed back the next morning . *side-note, we should have just continued because the way back was way harder. So we made it back to Matthieu lake for the night and chose the next day to go the other way, PCT. we made it to Minnie SCOTT spring where it was beautiful, butterflies everywhere. We set up camp and set out to see Opie Dilldock Pass and was not disappointed. We hiked out the last day to our finish. I will say everything from Matthieu lake south to past soap creak was nothing but a burn scar and only water at alder creek. When it is hit there is absolutely no sun protection. Lava lake camp trail is also a burn scar. I will do this hike again and finish it. I will start at pole creek or obsidian. I want to see the south end.

"Steep" out of 10!! Overall awesome!!!

Nice well kept trail a bit sparse on wildlife in mid afternoon and mid August lot of shade in the middle part of the trip - It’s documented as two trails but the loop meets the summit trail in the south west corner of the loop and it’s worth the side trip to the observation platform. I will be back in the fall and spring.
