HikingRocky

Beautiful hike but pretty rocky on the 2nd half to the waterfall. I brought my dog and she had trouble getting grip on the angled rocks. I wouldn’t recommend bringing dogs or small children. There was also a slide that we couldn’t avoid, so it might be better other times of the year. It was also very dusty. We were there on 8/4/20 in the afternoon and the trail wasn’t overly busy, which was nice. The view and spray of the waterfall was well worth it though :)

Lovely waterfall. Trail not too difficult. Rocky area can be tricky near to the falls. Can be crowded but there’s some space to spread out by the falls.

HikingGreat!

Spectacular view of the river and many waterfalls, lots of wild flowers, postcard picture like river views! The lake was very nice, saw some people swimming. Not difficult at all.

8/4/20: We enjoyed this hike for the serenity. We only saw one group of hikers in 10 miles. It is a decent physical challenge and the top has great views of Jack and Jefferson, especially from the rocks. You can see Duffy, Mowich and Santiam Lakes too as well as the Sisters and Hoodoo Ski Area. There were mosquitoes for sure especially close to the lake area. Overall a great day of hiking especially if you are local and looking for something different.

A beautiful trail with great spots near the water along the way. Only down side is it was a little crowded but you’re able to space out from others at the falls.

Great!

Very shaded moderate hike which starts off as asphalt and then you cross 10 bridges with creeks under them. Very scenic with a fairly consistent uphill climb until the end when it was more challenging. People were swimming in the lake. Recommended hike

40 minutes up - 20 minutes down. Good for trail running, at least downhill for most parts. Nice exercise, not too difficult, not to easy.

Beautiful view of Mt. Hood. The lake water was warm, and a lot of people were swimming and boating. There is also a campground here- you can camp right on the lake. Very easy hike.

Hiking

Trekking poles very helpful. Amazing views! Would definitely recommend going counter clockwise if you are doing the loop at the end. Personally if I were to do this again I would just go up and back and skip the right side of the loop. Dog loved it! Very busy with backpackers. Saw a few day hikers. Everyone was very courteous on the trail. Stepping aside and covering with masks. 10/10 recommend!

Amazing views of Crater Lake during the hike. The trail was pretty busy when we went around noon so bring a mask! Overall, the hike took us 1.5 hours to go the 3.4 miles. We ran about 1/3 of the hike and stopped for some pictures.

An amazing trail that will make you feel alive. That being said, we didn't make it all the way around due to my buddy's significant knee injury a couple of miles before Cloud Cap. Like most have said before, the river crossings were rather precarious and on two occasions we just sucked it up and got our shoes wet in order to avoid being washed down river. The Eliot Branch crossing before Cloud Cap is very challenging. Extremely steep decent to get to the crossing (crossing had a giant tree across it, which was helpful). My buddy was not thrilled to go down the steep hill to the log crossing and opted just to get himself wet again. The switchbacks back up to Cloud Cap was not very fun especially since we were arriving later than we planned for. Campground there was nice but be prepared for the fair-weather campers that don't necessarily follow 'good camper' rules like driving in and out at all hours of the night, some partiers, etc. It was nice to have a picnic table to eat at though. I will say that you might want to give yourself 3 nights (4 days hiking) to pace yourself. We were shooting for 2 nights and it made the days feel rushed. Hiking poles are a must. Bug spray is a must. Plan your hike to make it to a goat place to camp each night, don't just hike and assume you're going to find a place to lay a tent. We saw one deer and one frog, but perhaps you'll see more wildlife if you give yourself time to sit back and relax a couple of times a day. Hiked in mid July.

HikingGreat!Off trailScramble

Summited 8/3/2020. Started at 6 am, reached the summit at around 10, back at the trailhead around 2:30. We camped at devils lake trailhead. We arrived the previous day at 430 and there were still plenty of sites available. Keep in mind there are no showers or running water! I'd recommend you do this as the trailhead is right there. I packed 3 liters of water but I only drank around half. I usually go through my whole pack in 2 hours, but it was cold, so I didn't sweat much. It really doesn't hurt to be generous with your water. Bring some snacks as well. I was starving when I made it to the summit. The first section of the trail is a forest which goes on for around 1.5 miles or so. The forest is somewhat steep, and will leave you tired unless you warm up prior to the hike. This part blows and is otherwise quite uneventful. After the forest, you will reach a flat plateau that goes on for around a mile or so. This is arguably the most pleasant part of the hike. You are "rewarded" with splendid (and rather discouraging) views of south sister right in front of you. The mountain gets closer and closer before you reach the really fun part. I like to divide this up into two segments. The grey part and the red part, I named the segments after the color of the rocks you will be climbing. When you ascend the grey part, you think the summit is right there the whole way up which gets steeper and steeper, eventually reaching the point where you are almost rock climbing. You will reach a really nice lake only to realize you only made it halfway up the fun part. We swam at the lake on the way down and nearly froze. Unless you're built like a polar bear (im 200 lbs and 5'7), don't bother swimming, you'll freeze your balls off. The next part is like walking on sand dunes with lava rocks. I wont go too much into detail to save the surprise. The summit you see ahead of you while you're climbing is not the real summit! You will reach the false summit to see a glacier the size of a sand dune. Traverse the glacier to the summit if you're feeling ambitious or otherwise have no regard for your life, or just walk the normal way. It was very cold at the summit! And yes, the views are amazing. Don't look at photos, just leave it as a surprise. Bring a jacket and pants! It was around as cold as the winter nights in Portland, in August! Also hiking poles are a must. Even if you do not hike with poles, you will suffer if you don't bring poles. I'm not joking. Also, most reviews say to bring hiking boots, but that's not entirely necessary. My dad took his running shoes and only fell on his ass a total of 10 times on the way down. I have ptsd from the way down, I don't even want to talk about it. In summary, this hike is amazing. Except through the forest, you will have amazing views the whole way up and down. Bring hoking poles and a sturdy pair of shoes. I wore trail running shoes and I was okay, but don't bring running shoes unless you have nothing else. Also, unless you're a god, BRING POLES, or at the very very least, get a stick or something. I got a 20 dollar pair off of amazon that have lasted me the whole summer so far. A good backpack is also a good investment. Enjoy the hike, and don't give up

Not sure if Anne and I went on the same hike. The bugs were brutal, especially on the lower half. What views? You're in the forest the whole time until you reach the top, and then finally you're able to see all of the mountains that you should have climbed instead. Boring.

Backpacking

This is a spectacular trail to do in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or even more days depending on how much you like walking versus how much you like drinking in sensory delights such as: taking in epic views of neighboring mountains, smelling wildflowers, getting your feet wet at the top or bottom of a waterfall, listening to wind whistle around you at the top of a high ridge. I did this in four days July 30-August 2, starting at Timberline going counterclockwise. There are lovely campsites throughout the trail. Elk Cove campsites were crowded on Friday night by 5pm. People had to share which isn’t really a big deal. Ramona Falls sites were surprisingly available Saturday. Bugs were not a problem at all for me.

Hiking

When you think you’re done, your not! When we reached the top of the false summit, we thought we were done but upon reaching the top we noticed we had another 1 mile of steep hiking. Almost decided not to do it, but we toughened it up and reached the actual summit. This was one of the hardest trails I have done, but definitely rewarding when you have a breath taking view from the top. Bring lots of water!
