Went up yesterday, 7/2, and it was a gorgeous blue bird day with no wind. The views are incredible at the top, I’d say one of the most beautiful spots in Oregon with views of Broken Top, Middle and North Sister, Mt Bachelor and Jefferson. There is still quite a bit of snow on the trail (which is melting fast), with patches starting a little over a mile out. We had microspikes which worked out well going up, and brought an ice axe for some killer glisading. Treking poles were handy for the decent as there is a bunch of loose skree at the very top. We left around 6:15am and it took us about 5 hours to summit. Great hike!!

Super cool summit and trail. Conditions were great but definitely start early and make sure you have an ice ax or micro spikes for the way down. I made it up fine in trail runners and had crampons/ boots for the way down which was overkill. Also lots of dogs and definitely doable for them without protection for their paws (again, just start early!) Beautiful day and views!

Snow was solid/icy on the way up at 6 or 7 in the morning, but turned soft/slushy during my descent as temps rose. Camped at Moraine Lake the night before, and the views in the morning as the fog/clouds burned off were amazing. If you do that, I suggest leaving your camping gear at Moraine Lake. Beautiful views at the top, and climbing from the false summit to the true summit is very minor - almost like a little victory lap.

Did this trail a couple times before the 2018 fire. An easy, quiet, and beautiful trail. Totally recommend it once it’s open again.

This trail is pretty steep in some sections, but totally worth it. Gorgeous views of Wallowa Lake and mountains. Views for days... on July 2, no waterfall to obstruct progress as mentioned in some reviews. Only saw a handful of other hikers. Made it up to about 7,200 ft from the trailhead in the State Park campground. Took us just under five hours total.

very interesting geology and beautiful views.

Fun hike. Intermittent snow covering about 4-5 miles in then consistent covering around 5.5-6 miles right next to Three Fingered Jack. Well tracked through snow sections so not hard to stay on trail for the most part.

Where else can you climb a volcano and see other volcanoes in the distance both Both and South. Start early and be sure you have a good read on the weather forecast.

Beautiful hike. Lots of snow. We had micro spikes, but wished we had crampons and an ice axe. Very slippery coming down.

Incredible, incomparable views worth every grueling step on the way up. Still lots of snow and the final climb can feel a bit treacherous with harsh winds and whiteouts. Micro spikes helped a ton, but absolutely would have felt a lot safer with trek poles. Took about 5 hours to make it up with my mutt and about 2.5 hours down with some killer glissading and bounding down in the snow. What an experience!

So not really a "hiking trail". This is an old forest gravel road with a couple pull off camping spots. We drove about 3/4 of the way up the trail before we realized we were already on the trail. We parked and walked the last super steep bit so we could atleast say we walked the trail. The final half mile or so is super steep but unfortunately it is grown over the last bit and we weren't feeling adventurous enough to Bushwack to the top. Overall it was okay, not worth the 2 hour drive unfortunately though!

Great hike and the views are well worth the effort. Very windy at sandy plain, Cinder Ridge and at the Summit. Lots of snow throughout the trail. Gloves would have been nice after Sandy Plain.

Misery ridge closed. Bummer. Open After July 4th. Still really nice stroll around the River trail. Would have tried going around backside but ended up hiking with 4 year old so took it easy.

Wow, didn’t expect that...

If you’re reading this, do yourself a big favor and send this. It’s hard but well well worth the grind. On a clear day you are able to see what seems to be almost endlessly up the spine of the cascade range. Additionally, at the summit you’re above the clouds which always feels pretty special. That being said, make sure you get an early start as it’s much easier to gain traction on each step when the snow is firm. There may be some inevitable post holing on the descent however (depending on start time) which is why you’re better off just glissading!

Hiked this trail on 6/26- started at 7am and we reached the summit around noon! Microspikes were definitely helpful on the way up and poles saved me on the way down especially on the steep parts! Unfortunately we had so much fun glissading down that we ended up off trail and needed our GPS to get back on trail! Challenging hike and the views are more than worth the effort!

Climbed Mt Hood’s South Route through the Pearly Gates on June 26. The mountain conditions were terrific. We arrived at the summit at 7:30 am and the chute’s snow was still firm with good steps and hand holds. An outstanding day to be on top of Mt Hood!

Came up the steep side. Trailhead is easy to find, and right off the highway. You hear the highway noise until about 1.5 miles into the hike. Rhododendron, some wild iris, and foxglove all spotted on the trail. The view at the end is pretty on a clear day. I’m giving it 3 stars because it was a really tough hike with an ok view at the end, but I think there are hikes out there that are just as hard but have way better payoff. However, if you are a rock climber I am sure it is worth the grueling hike straight up. I consider myself in good hiking shape and it took me about 90 minutes to get to the top, and about half that time to get down. Trail is in great condition.

This hike was incredible. First time was a bust - only got up to 9,000 feet before we had to turn around because of 45 mph winds and whiteout conditions. Came back the following weekend with clear skies and the pyramid/shadow + sunrise was just EPIC. Just before Hogsback is a flat spot - perfect for dropping skis/watching the sunrise. Pearly gates were stunning- a little icy in some parts but gosh the views are just jaw dropping.
