Hiking

Fun hike - I’d recommend this as an easy starter hike. It’s a good distance and has great views!

HikingBugsGreat!Over grown

Not very busy on a Friday afternoon, we saw less than ten other people on the trail. Great views and lots of shade which our dog appreciated. Some spots were a bit overgrown but not too bad. There were mosquitos the last mile to the viewpoint so pack bug spray.

I have been here a couple times now- the sound of the running water makes up for the traffic you can hear in spots- But I can’t believe no one mentioned the size of some of the trees that start not long after you pass the 1 mile marker- - You have to stop and admire the width of some of the trunks - and the height - impressive - Plan on some mud-

Short, but steep trail to a great view. This is one of my favorite short hikes to bring my dog on after a day at work. It’s a perfect picnic hike with your friends, family, or pets.

It doesn't get any better than this for a family hike. Easy trail and gorgeous waterfall. Go early or on a week day and you'll have smaller crowds.

Go early, park on roadside as parking lot is still closed. Beautiful hike down with three areas to scramble over downed trees on the trail, but doable. Beautiful beach below with lots of tide pools.... try to go at low/minus tide for best experience. Hike back up is switchbacks and not too hard. Estimate 45 mins down and 1 hr 15 mins up. Beautiful!!!!

Bridge out

We enjoyed this quick trail! We hiked it on July 9. It was cloudy, so we did not get a great glimpse of the mountain which was a bummer. The boardwalk is reported as closed and there really is no other way to get around the lake. There were a lot of people fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Our Google maps reported the trailhead beginning 2 miles before the lake. We ended up following the signs to trillium lake and parking by the dam. The trailhead is right near the dam. Enjoy!

Awesome trail! The trail head is shared with green lakes trail and half way the trail to Morraine lake splits. Its highly trafficked but once you split off its virtually no one. the first part of the trail follows a river with multiple waterfalls! Gorgeous and the sound of waterfalls so relaxing. there are a ton of of bugs but so worth it!

We loved this trail! We took the crooked river trail to the misery ridge trail (basically backwards). It was a difficult trail, but the view at the top was incredible! There is not a lot of shade. We began at 8:30 am, and the rock shaded us through the crooked river trail, but when we reached the misery ridge trail it was full-out sun. We were pretty spent by the time we walked back to our car!

Completed 7/10/20 Northwest Forest Pass required. Fill out free hiking permit at the trailhead for trail management. Drive/Parking: Many large potholes on the road in, but we managed in a sedan. Tons of parking. Bathrooms present. Trail Condition: Good sandy-type trail with a lot of sun exposure. No bugs. River crossing was easy walking across fallen trees with adjacent trees to hold onto for balance. Water was refreshing to dip your toes in. The waterfall was so tall and beautiful and the air was cool from the mist. Very unique waterfall, it made it worth the hike. You can do a loop hike back or just retrace your steps back to the parking lot. We clocked it at 7.3mi RT.

We parked near rim village and jumped on the trail there. The view of Crater Lake and Wizard Island are amazing! The Lake and the island can be seen from really any of the turn-offs, but we hiked anyway. There was still a little snow on the ground, but that just added to the beauty. It does cost $30 to get into Crater Lake.

Completed 7/10/20 Northwest Forest Pass required. Parking: lots of parking but it’s a popular hike so arrive early. Bathrooms are open. Trail Condition: Excellently maintained dirt, dry trail; no longer muddy. Mostly covered in shade. Bugs didn’t bother us so we didn’t need bug spray. Approximately 2 miles to mirror lake where you can loop around the lake or continue up to the summit. Overall a moderate straight-forward hike. No scramble at the summit. Stunning views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson (I think) in the distance and lots of chipmunks! We clocked it at about 7mi RT.

This trail was a joy to hike! The trail follows the river the entire way and allows for a great distraction to make the trail go by quickly. We were on the trail by 8:30 am. The trail definitely got busier on our way back to the cars. We paired this trail with the sahalie falls and the proxy falls loop for the perfect day.

Recommend 100x over! This trail was one of my favorites. We hiked the trail on July 7. It is quite rocky at the beginning and there were quite a few people on the trail in the afternoon. There are signs for the upper and lower falls that venture a little ways off the loop, but do not miss these! We found the lower falls even more remarkable than the upper ones. Enjoy!

Hiked on July 7. We arrived in the afternoon and parking was scarce. This trail was quite heavily trafficked, but the waterfalls are beautiful! It is definitely worth the time!

Off trail

Great views but very difficult to find the path to the cave. I would definitely encourage hiking boots as the trail was quite muddy. I was also surprised to find that Google Maps took us on at least 7 miles of a very rough gravel road. We ended up ditching our car a mile and a half and walked up the road to the trailhead because we were in a car.

Hiking

Four of us completed this hike today when the temperatures were in the low 80s. Gorgeous views of the Clackamas! We all recorded between 8.5 to 9 miles from Fish Creek TH to pup falls and back. Good moderate hike with some decent climbs but the up-downs were nice. It was pretty hot on the way back — glad we didn’t bring the pups. My partner helped an older gentleman having a medical emergency due to the heat. Bring lots of extra water for this one! The falls were gorgeous and worth the elevation gain.

Definitely worth seeing. Lucky enough to do it in ‘17 before all the fires. The switchback path to the top of the falls is pretty steep with exposed edges. Lots and lots of people kinda ruined the whole day being there...but then again, I was one of them!

Hiking

Worth doing hands down. First part of the hike isn’t that spectacular other than crossing the river. The Falls are breathtaking and makes you want to just stay for awhile and take it all in. On the way back continuing on, the 2nd half of the trail is almost like being in the “Shire” following a winding stream in dense woods. A must do while in Oregon.

HikingBugsRocky

Loved this hike! Up hill most of the way but the switchbacks made it much easier. Most of the trail is in the shade on the way up. At the top are great panoramic views on all sides and it is very sunny, exposed, and dry. Lots of vultures riding the thermals overhead and even came down a bit closer to see if I was lunch worthy. A pile of rocks on the top was where I had lunch and there were quite a few feathers and bird down caught up in the rocks. Trail in spots on the top is about 8 to 10 feet wide and is almost dizzying when you look around at the mountains on all sides. Definitely worth it to do again! Only caveat was that 3 motorcycles zipped up past me on the trail- just got off the trail while they went by. Never saw them at the top so they must have continued on to somewhere else.

Trees have all been cleared on road up. Few down on trail but easy to get over. Beautiful and quiet.
