Nice hike through the woods to a blue pool. Both hikers and bikers out on this trail. Trail js easy enough. Nothing too steep or tricky.

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.

Worth the 9 washboard miles to get there. Went around 9am & were the only hikers for first half hour. Extremely cool and otherworldly landscape. Gives great perspective of edges of the volcanic impact zone. Super easy hike, hiking boots are unnecessary unless you go off the trail. Nice shady part thru parts. Great interpretive signs. Toilette at the trailhead.

Wonderful hike! We did 5.2 miles RT to the slough meadows. Worth the additional distance to see the water change so dramatically from raging rapids to tranquility. Easy hike for most; beware that many hikers lack the consideration to wear a mask. The early morning was fine but by 11:00 the ignorant emerged.

Nice ‘wake-me-up’ stop on way south through Oregon. Very windy in afternoon so dress accordingly.

It's the riverfront walk in Corvallis. What are you expecting?

No shade

The nice part of this path is the creekside walk where dogs can play in the water. Otherwise, take another entry point.

I prefer this entry to Bald Hill. More incline, fewer people. It's a great spot to bring your dog for a nice stroll in the fresh air.

It's a great place to go within easy distance of town. Bring your mask, as the higher you climb, the harder it is to socially distance.

This is a nicely maintained single track trail with gorgeous mountain lakes. It is very dusty for at least the first half. Expect to find horse manure on this shared trail. Nice view of Thielson along the way. There are 5-6 good campgrounds at Maidu Lake and one good site at Lucille Lake. Miller Lake has easy access for day use. Definitely some incline in the 6 miles from Maidu Lake to Miller Lake where there are flush toilets. The mosquitoes were there fierce when they were out but there were only few around midday. Bring Deet. We went Thur to Sat at the end of July and came across only 2 couples on this trail ( more at Miller Lake) during the pandemic.

Quick walk to the lighthouse. I recommend going a little ways up the trail behind the lighthouse which takes you up the hill so you're above the lantern room. It's a pretty cool angle to take photos from.

Not as much of a hike as it is a stroll down the beach but it's a very cool beach to visit. Haystack Rock is a must see if you're in the area and at low tide you can even walk right up on it. There happened to be people working around the rock that day and they were discussing info about the various sea life and the endangered birds that live on the rock. It was quite informative and I got some really cool photos.

Wide trail so a very easy hike. Beware of all the poison oak though. If you have little ones hiking with you keep a close eye on them - looks like it's everywhere out there.

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

If you’re looking for a place to escape the public and relax while enjoy the sounds of nature then this is not the place for you. The hike is too short and the road not near long enough to stop the obnoxious beer cooler carrying partiers from hiking in so they can spend the day yelling, cussing, and “Woo Hoo”ing every five minutes and THEN leave their trash ( including TP) behind. AVOID THIS TRAIL!! Side Note: Can someone explain to me why laying on an inflatable inner tube on FLAT water barely moving brings on the need to scream “WOO HOO!!” every five minutes which is then repeated in succession by all the others who are also not on a carnival ride, at a water park, or are not a child on a slide?

BackpackingGreat!

I purposely chose to hike this trail on a Monday morning with the sole reason to have the trail to myself. I guess the other 27 cars in the parking lot when I got there had the same idea. I agree with other All Trails users who mentioned hiking to the upper meadow is doable for anyone in average shape, but after that the hike kicked my butt. I only made it to the glacier lake, was going to hike farther up the trail, but it was really busy. Watching the other hikers logged jammed on a single trek rock scramble was not my idea of fun. They kind of reminded me of the people stuck on the Hillary Step on their way to the top of Everest. While disappointed I didn't make it to the end, it was still a wonderful hike. Everyone should experience the wildflowers on the upper meadows, and apparently today everyone in Oregon did. On a side note - there is a $5 fee to park here. The road getting there is very bumpy. Trekking polls were extremely helpful on the rock scramble. Happy Hiking

Still a few mosquitoes, enough that I finally applied repellant. On the forest road leading to the trailhead I encountered a loaded logging truck coming out (the salvage logging operation appears to be shut down, but perhaps not). Besides two beautiful lakes, a spectacular two-tier waterfall and views of two Cascade peaks (have to work a bit for Mt. Jefferson), this is also a worthy old-growth hike.

HikingGreat!

Loved this hike. If you park at the dam like others have suggested, it’s closer to a 6.5 mile hike vs a 7.6 mile. Just cross the damn and the trail starts slightly to the right on the other side. The best views of Mt. Hood are about a mile and a half up but the rest of the hike is beautiful as well with some views of Mt. Adams from the top. The incline is very manageable. A good workout but not too much of a burner. I started the hike at 9:30 on a Monday and was the only person on the trail hiking up. On my way down (closer to 11:30-noon) I passed several people.

Very easy flat trail close to Bend that goes along a beautiful river with nice areas to stop by for a swim or picnic. Good shade so a nice choice for a hot day. The AllTrails out and back path doesn’t really have an end point (at least that was clear to us). After following the river for a while, the trail starts going uphill at the very end - and then it’s time to turn around. Easy parking.
