great snowshoe hike! good exercise.... go past the power lines for a full three miles. We had out dog with us and he had a blast but got tired towards the end (I think he got frustrated from sinking in) beautiful views of Hood the entire time. Clear paths to follow but because it is so open you can pretty much just walk towards the mountain and you'll get where you're going. Word of advice, do not cross the river on your way back if you walk in the ravine, keep it on your left. There are tracks that cross it but there is not a good way back over to get to the parking lot- we had to do some sketchy fording. Did the trail on a Tuesday 3/19/19 and had the whole place to ourselves for the most part!

There was a lot of snow, there no views to see until you reach the top. it's a great Hike, make sure to come prepared lol my shoes were soaked.

What a gorgeous day! The snow won’t last so get it while you can. Easy loop trail to falls!

It's near the end of the season, so put away your snowshoes and have a great walk down to the Lake. The road down to the day use area is fully compacted, and there is an easy foot trail from the road down to the Lake. I got down to the Lake about 7:15 to watch the sunrise over the mountain.

It was absolutely gorgeous there today. We had hiking boots and trekking poles. It was doable, but spikes would have made it much more enjoyable in parts. It was very slick in parts. In fact I found it easier to slide down on my butt in parts. Worth the view!

Nice trail with packed snow. We saw people without snowshoes but we were glad we brought ours. We elected not to do the loop and instead do an out and back - it looked like fewer people on the trail then the road. The falls were beautiful and worth the hike in.

Packed snow for the whole way. The lake has some deeper snow that requires snow shoes for the most efficiency. Get there early as it’s not as much fun to share the trail.

Snowshoed and snow-camped weekend of March 15th. Did not see another sole.Friday we broke trail to Fuji Shelter, tough but rewarding. The 16th we did a day hike 3 miles out and back meandering through deep snow trails by snow covered lakes. We wrapped up the day by hiking down the trail back to our car 4.5 miles. It was way easier on the way back as we followed our previous tracks that we had to cut the day before. I was so surprised that no one else came up on this beautiful weekend.

Elizabeth and I were the only people on the trail who hiked up to and camped at Fuji Shelter area. It was a challenging hike. We had to break trail the whole way and with 30lb packs that was quite a fun and challenging trek. We did not stay in the shelter we set up tents to try our gear in the snow. We did use the shelter for an evening fire in the lovely stove. The fire and the smell of food did draw out a sizable rat. Had amazing sunsets and sunrise with a mountain view.

Amazing views & challenging moderate hike! 2 cool bridges & breath taking falls. Not too busy on weekends with tourists as well. Bring spikes over your shoes for the snow.

There is no where to park a horse trailer.

While there isn't a need for snowshoes through most of the trail I would highly recommend bringing poles and/or crampons for the trek as there are some deeper areas that can present a challenge. Other than that this a fully majestic hike that offers some decent elevation gain and a bit more difficulty. The switchbacks can be a little intense at parts but nothing too strenuous. Highly recommend for a great workout.

What a crazy day! We planned on watching the sunset from the summit and coming down in the dark. We followed the broken trail, it went up the cliff, we decided it was unsafe. Then we figured out where the trail should have been and started breaking it. The snow was so light and fluffy when it was compacted down the path was waist deep. After hours of break trail we ran out of time and didn’t make the summit. Definitely one I will attempt again.

This is a fun week day hike! New calves in the farmers field! Nice snow pack when you start to hike to the top!

Gorgeous camping!

what a beautiful hike! Met a few PCT through hikers!

my favorite hike out of all of the hikes we did while at Mt. Hood! We did it at sunset and had the privilege of privacy! Absolutely gorgeous! August of 2016

low traffic, easy hike.

3/2/19. My favorite hike in Oregon to date! The snow was absolutely stunning and the falls were fantastic. I hiked in boots, no snow shoes or spikes and I was fine! I got a late start around 4pm and made it back to my car by 6 right before dark and my dog and I were the only ones there, it was amazing. Highly recommend this beautiful winter hike!

Beautiful in the snow! Started around noon. Full parking lot. I did it solo and felt safe. Snowshoes are not necessary. I would only bring them if it snows the night before. the trail is longer do to road closures. Trail head starts almost immediately off the freeway. if you just want to see the lake covered in snow go left when you get to the first fork.

Wonderful place to hike for first time snowshoeing.

Fun winter hike wound up being longer than planned because of road closure and lots of snow. Only recorded last third but was so much fun! Ok with just boots. Snowshoes would probably have been better but not necessary.
