Best (fun and scenic) section is north side, from North Fork Middle Fork Willamette River across to campgrounds; then you climb up, flow down, and thru to South Waldo Shelter (east side). Enter the west side, if you dare.

Great trail! It’s changed a lot since the flooding this spring, and the signs still say that the trail is closed. You’ll also have to walk a little farther and scramble on a rocky outcropping to get to the trailhead. However, you can definitely hike it, and it’s still a lot of fun! The trail disappears occasionally due to parts that have been washed out, and it’s a bit more overgrown than usual. When you hit the dry riverbed crossing, just follow the riverbed until you reconnect with the trail, which should be on the left. Only hiked 2 miles in, but it looks like you can keep going. Other than that, it’s beautiful!

Great!

Great Alpine hike, and good change up from hiking in the lower valley. Took the longer path around and went up Palmateer Butte. I highly recommend the detor and it doesn't add to much extra overall. The view is wonderful and on a clear day you will see all of Mt. Hood. Detor and extra bit was 10.3 from the parking lot so nothing too extra.

Amazing views of Mt. Hood. Nice trail that runs through the woods and has views for large parts of the hike. Only downside is that it’s a narrow trail in parts that is pretty crowded. Certainly worth seeing.

Lovely trail. Lots of wildflowers. Went fairly early but only ran into four other groups along the way. A few fairly easy inclined but a very all levels type of trail. Only complaint was that there were a couple of closures we came across that had not been posted at visitor’s center.

My family of 5 hiked the North trail. 3 kids ages 3, 4 and 8. A few spots on the traul have trees to go over/under/around. A couple washed out spots, but still doable. My kids were exhausted by the time we got back to our vehicle, so we didn't get to hike the South trail. I will be back for that one! Several small falls and beautiful views along the way. The mosquitoes were out in full force today.

BackpackingBlowdown

As this trail runs around the lake, you would hope to have good views of the lake most of the time, but that was not our experience. The sheer number of blow downs makes finding a place to dig a cat hole an Olympic feat, let alone finding a place to stealth camp. It's a fairly easy hike with very little change in elevation but I would not recommend it for backpacking.

Not my favorite hike. Way too muddy in several parts of the trail. The trail greenery was overgrown in some areas and not maintained.

Nice easy ride with kids. Few miles of flat cement paths. Leads to the river park. Can be pretty busy once you reach the park.

Pretty over run and dirty. Not inviting. We hiked up there and didn’t get in. Too many people. Port-a-potty in parking lot looks like a dumpster.

Great hike today. Last mile or so driving up is on very rocky road w many potholes and also a shared road so be careful. At beginning of trail it's buggy (right when you get out of car), so spray up or get bit. Trail itself was in good condition, some rocky spots. Once at lake, many options to get down to water.

7/12 - not closed as stated on AllTrails , not very busy either for a beautiful Sunday! Mostly exposed, bring water and sunscreen, but occasional oak groves for a shady respite. Lovely views the whole way. Certainly glad to have gone counterclockwise, the wall portion is steep and enjoyed going down it for the last leg as opposed to up it on the first. Saw one rattlesnake but it kept to itself, lots of cute little lizards.

Really cool little trail along the waster below the ridge. That part is mixed dirt and gravel while the rest is asphalt and not very interesting, especially along the straight away next to Oaks Park.

The water is so transparent/blue it is amazing. Plenty of places you can go off trail a few steps and swim... or soak your feet. Kind of cool going through the lava rocks area. Definitely a fun Loop. Pretty busy when I went so finding parking near the resort/boat dock may not be easy. Appears if you know your way around you could park in other, more accessible areas. Definitely 5 star views!

On 10 July there were still a number of wild flowers in bloom. Recommend using the summit loop trail thru the forest. It is much more enjoyable than walking up the road.
