the river was awesome, but it was more so just following the road and wandering down / following the river when you could.

Quiet - few people around this morning (though clearly this trail is used more for horseback riding than for hiking! Plenty horse poop.) The starting point is from the Hardy Creek trailhead; you can cross the road before or after for river access, but you won't see the river during the hike. The trail names at the parking lot board and along the way are different than shown on this map, but the loop is easy to find, trails are nicely maintained, and it's a nice spot. Shady and cool for summer, not heavily trafficked.

Oh my gosh, this is amazing :) Definitely something to plan for though, good shoes, plan on getting dirty and tired. It's June and we hiked through a little mud and a big chunk of snow. I would say it's a little harder then a moderate hike. It's pretty up hill at some points, but when you get there it's so worth it! I can't wait to go again! More exploring next time!

This is a moderate hike and this was my first one in a few years. We made it up easily but then the coming down killed my knees. There are spots along the ridge where you can see mt hood peeking out. it's beautiful and you can stay over night there.

Nice hike with LOTS of off-shoot trails. I ended up branching off the mail loop road after about 1 mile onto the Elk Skull Trail (rated as "Difficult", but very short), from there to the Fern Creek [I think??] Trail (also rated as "Difficult") which eventually led me back to the main loop road. Very beautiful, lush, shaded route with a sea of ferns the whole way. Personally wouldn't say the trails were "difficult", but definitely steeper and more remote then the main loop road - they parallel the main loop road, just sit deeper in the woods. Hope this all makes sense!

Will definitely come back and do some more exploring.

Amazing and beautiful hike. Shaded the majority of the way. We followed the "red line" on the map to the "T" and it was about a 7.75-8 mile hike. Not sure why it says 5.9 on the description and loop. If we would have had time we may have enjoyed the river a bit...maybe next time.
