5/20/18: Amazing hike with great views. Still a lot of snow (~4-5 foot drifts). Might need to wait a little later in the season to get easier access to the trails.

Excellent hike with stunning views on a clear day! Tough incline heading up, but well worth the views. Snowshoed in mid- March

Great views and a really nice trail, hard hike but a good challenge

Snowshoed on a clear day in January. Followed previous tracks up, and blazed our own trail coming back down. Quite steep at the final ascent, but manageable. View from the top was breathtaking.

By following the existing trail forged by those before me, I went straight up - round trip with some wandering around at the summit left my GPS showing only 2.98 miles. Snow was an icy pack the whole way up. Summit would be fantastic... On a day without a complete whiteout. Still worth the trip, great length and strenuous for a weekend day hike between breakfast and a late lunch. I look forward to going up in the spring.

Beautiful hike for snowshoes. Trail is covered so you’re at the mercy of the previous snowshoer who picked a pretty spicy grade up to the top.

Had the trail to myself except for a few fishermen. Trail got a little soft and muddy in places as the day went on so go early when it's still frozen.

Awesome in January!

My favorite time of year to hike the Green Lakes trail is in the late summer to see the wildflowers. I've also been in the late fall (snowfall permitting) though and it was just as beautiful!

Was extremely cloudy and snowy when we were on top. Some pictures going up looked beautiful. Trail signs in winter we’re not very visible and took a completely non trail path up. Very hard and steep in snowshoes. Over all weather held this one back.

pretty steep near the summit. Very snowy most the way up. Brought my snowshoes and that helped a ton! Beautiful views at the top!

Definitely moderate. The view at the top is well worth the 2 miles up a mountain. It took about 1 and 20 minuets on the way up and about 40 minuets to get back down but we were going slower in some spots because of the ice on the trail. I will be doing this hike again it was breathtaking.

Great trail. Not a lot of switchbacks or steep climbs. Beautiful views. I loved hiking along the water.

Amazing hike along Fall Creek to Green Lakes. Arrived at the trailhead around 9am and had no trouble parking. The views of South Sister and Broken Top were spectacular, not to mention the beautiful creek and lakes.

Great rewards for this hike…. rapid flowing mountain stream with rapids, water falls and wild flowers. Ending at two lakes with outstanding view of South Sister and Broken Top mountains! It has it all. NFS guide list this as the most popular hike in Oregon. We could see why! Note to travelers (as of August 2017)… coming from Bend there is no sign on Cascades Parkway for trailhead parking! You enter on the right at the construction stop light and can miss if not paying attention (we did).

Thoroughly enjoyed the hike up Tumalo Mountain. Even wide enough at points to walk side by side making for good conversation while hiking.

Good incline hike withe beautiful views from the top. Very smoky today with light trail activity.

This hike would have been absolutely lovely had the fire smoke not been so thick today. Got to the trailhead at 10. Only 1 other car there. Hike steady incline the whole way and dusty but not bad. Up at the top the visibility was zero! Could not even see base of Bachelor. Breathing wasn't an issue with smoke. Hope to go back when clear to get the views!

Absolutely gorgeous hike. Stopped at Green Lake and camped for the night. Do not be discouraged by the fact that this is 'highly trafficked.' We saw some trail runners and other day hike/backpackers, but nothing excessive, on a Saturday and Sunday. Everyone was kind and helpful. Bottom of the trail is more populated, by the time you get to Green lake there are less people. Planning a through hike to Green, then gold lake, then out via the Park Meadow trail, for next year.

The smaller green lake isn't that cold in August, I recommend going for a dip if your joints are hurting at all.

A really good uphill where getting to the top is well worth the aching legs.
Even with the fire haze the view is amazing.
Be prepared to eat some dust especially if it's a bit windy. But what's a little dust to hikers??
Watch your dogs and kids on the edge. We saw parents that allowed their approx 6 year old start walking down the edge in the pumice skree. One slip and he'd have quite the rough ride down. Stay safe, stay on the trail and enjoy!

straightforward to the top. Good views of Bachelor and the 3 sisters.

Great hike .... was very foggy though

TH is NOT marked on the highway. Pull off and park at Dutchman Flat/SnoPark for Tumalo mtn TH.

Beautiful hike, even in the snow. We went in lateJune-earlyJuly, I would certainly go back to see it in the summer.
