This was a really enjoyable trail! It was a little muddy and wet but once the sun came out it was easy to walk over. The hike itself is very easy, however getting to the trail was a challenge. I found the best way was past Eagle Fern Park, following Eagle Fern road that turns into George Road, then following that about 8 miles and turning right onto Harvey Road. This road looks a little intimidating, lots of pot holes and rocky gravel, but it wasn’t horrible. There are lots of little dead ends and gated roads, ignore all those and go to the end of the road (it will curve a bit to the right after about 2 miles or so) there are obvious spots you can park at. There are some coordinates or something by the trial head, it goes down and to a lovely hike. I saw some owls and lots of little waterfalls. Had the trail to all to myself! The forest was beautiful and had a good mix of scenery! Great hike if you have 4 wheel drive!

Steep, tricky footing in places as several trees are down. Poles may be helpful for some. There’s basically no snow up there as of June 2nd, 2020. The 20 road to the trailhead is still closed, so find alternate route. Really enjoyed the challenge of this hike and the views of Mt Hood rival any other I’ve seen. The lookout at the summit was also a nice surprise. Make sure you check out the accommodations!

A very pleasant trail for all skill levels. Agree with comments about popularity on this beautiful day. The trail at times was a little challenging to follow as written here (signage not good in a couple places) but little risk of getting lost on this well traveled trail.

Great hike! Just keep walking and you’ll find the trail head. Some muddy portions but not terrible. We did take our little dog even though it recommends not too and there were others with dogs as well. Just be warned there are portions downhill where you need to hold onto rope! Highly recommend parking as far down the gravel road as you feel comfortable so the walk back to your car doesn’t suck! Once you make it downhill follow the river bank on your left to the actual waterfall.

A wonderful walk through a beautiful area. My wife and I have walked this trail many times, and often have it all to ourselves. Bald eagles, pelicans, herons, ducks, geese, and quail abound - you’ll be glad of binoculars and a camera! This trail connects to others such that you can cover considerable ground if so inclined.

Completed 5/31/20 Trail is open as is the parking and was quite busy on the weekend. Easy hike with minimal elevation and many shaded areas. There are $5 boat rentals also to go out on the lake

I love the views at the top! Still some wildflowers along the trail. Trail is very narrow, one of the narrower trails I have been on. Couple of beautiful waterfalls at the beginning of the trail. The only reason I gave this trail 4 out 5, because about 0.5 miles of the trail is closed and there is no signs at the cutoff and the end is very tricky. Also, I feel like this trail has more than 728 gain elevation.

Great trail. Muddy and slippery some area. Gorgeous falls. No sign at all. Randomly in our way back we followed the water fall sound and we found ourselves on top of the falls. It was pretty awesome.

Absolutely stunning trail- we started at Sahalie Falls and worked our way down the trail with the stairs to Koosah Falls. New railings being put in, but still accessible. The waterfalls are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen, and the water is a gorgeous shade of blue with lush green moss covering all the trees and rocks. Super easy, quick little trail and although we didn’t do the whole thing as we were short on time, it’s one of our favorite places we’ve visited so far!

Cute trail, big on bikers (so be careful, if you have little ones because they take some corners so quick!) Easy to follow, I would suggest starting at Orchard park to *park* your car first.

This was my second time visiting this very amazing waterfall, main reason for the second visit was to capture it in a video which can be seen on my YouTube channel “Oregon Water Wonders”.. if anyone is interested.. There are still a lot of downed trees blocking roads to moon falls, spirt falls, and Pinyard falls.. so to hopefully save some frustration the only clear road we found to these falls was by taking forest road 5840 to 17, when you get to the junction with the bathroom on the right hand side of the road on FR 17, take a left for a mile or so then you will see a sign telling you to turn left for moon falls trail head.. which is another 3 miles from there.. enjoy and happy waterfalling :)

Great trail! Open and beautiful view of Mount Jefferson and the lake.

I really enjoyed this trail. Parking lot was open, some muddy spots but they were easy to avoid. Part the wooden walkway/footbridge at the lake was submerged in 6 inches of water and my feet got wet but it was worth it. Some trees down too but easy to scramble over.

Koosah is closed due to construction (I saw nice new wooden railings are being installed :) ) Else the waterfall and river view & short hike around Sahalie falls were awesome!

Still lots of snow as of 5/2. Made our way to the top by keeping an eye on the app, but the trail was completely covered. Definitely doable, but good boots and a charged phone recommended. Spectacular views, worth the effort.

A must see!!!

just did cone peak and iron mountain on Sunday. the trail is mostly clear except for 3 mounds you'll have to climb over, a little slippery

Nice hike into Blow Lake & back. Started hitting patches of snow just past the lake.

Hiked this loop in a counter-clockwise direction in early June. The app alerted me that part of the Wildwood Trail about 3 miles in was closed for trail maintenance, and that was accurate. The detour follows Cleator>Leif Ericsson>Koenig to meet back up with Wildwood. The detour seemed to be approximately the same distance as the closed part. Parts of Koenig and Firelane 4 are very overgrown. Happy to report much of the mud has begun to dry up. The pieces on the Maple Trail were particularly beautiful.

Second time I’ve done this trail. It is very difficult in spots and definitely not for the faint of heart. Dogs can make it but on the Elk Mt. side there are some spots you may have to help them traverse but nothing too scary. Both elevation gains are hard as heck but Elk is more sudden. Bring a hardy spirit because the views are worth it, but be prepared, this one is an ass kicker! Wild flowers galore and epic views once up top. There is even a rope at one point and Elk requires a small rock scramble to summit if coming from Kings. Have fun and bring water! 7-9hrs for the whole loop depending on your pace and rest times. I’ve been at about 8.5 hrs both times stopping for 15 to 30 mins or so on each summit. The first time I went I got dumped on and was soaked through for most of the trip due to rain gear failing. This time was fun in the sun and a much more enjoyable! It hurts so good!

Tried to do this today but they have active logging operations that close the road. We were not able to continue on.

I went a little farther because of one detour that I highly recommend. In the second meadow area follow the old tire tracks that are starting to grow back. It’s an extra .5 miles but the view is super worth it. When it comes to the actual hike, you’re going to cross 2 gravel forest roads. When you get to the second I suggest turning around. The rest of it is just in the trees. Really just the first 2 miles are worth it. Bonus: if your vehicle can handle gravel/forest roads comfortably (4x4 sometimes but not always) drive past the trail head and explore. There’s tones of different roads back here that are worth it. I drove the gravel roads up to the trail head and it was definitely worth it.
