The trail is well kept because it's primarily used for mountain biking. Some really fun switch backs and birm shots! The ecosystem changed from sunny manzanita covered hills to moss covered chilled woods. I got a nice little cardio workout on my way up which was 4 miles to Tin Cup Peak. There are multiple trails, some of which are marked "bikes only". The way up had some nice views of the Valley of the Rogue with all the fall colors. I was disappointed at the top because there wasn't a view where I landed. They are furthering this trail system to cover the back side of the mountain as well. The reason I won't go back here is I-5 is simply too close and I could hear the hwy most of the 7 mile hike. If you don't don't mind the noise you'll love this hike. Watch out for bikers :)

Easy hike to a beautiful waterfall with amazing scenery the whole way.

Hiked the Loop on Nov 17- rainy start, but the sun came out half way through our trek. Beautiful trail & well marked. I would not rate this hard- more of a moderate hike. It has rained a lot this week and there are 2 creeks that you have to “jump” over: 1 had a small slick log and the other had a log that submerged when weight was added. Nice gradual uphill grade and never saw another person.

We only saw two people on the trail when we went in March. If you don't mind hiking in snow and like the trail to yourself I suggest going in early spring.

I went on this trail when there was still snow on the ground. It was gorgeous but a little difficult just because of the snow. It would be a super easy hike in the summer months.

great views!

Clean free camp site, first come first serve, get cozy with your neighbors because you’re all right on top of each other, but you are surrounded by tall scenic landscapes. The views are spectacular with amazingly colored landscapes. Tons of trails to hike and drive. Would totally recommend anyone to go if you get a chance. About a 2 hr drive to the campsites if your coming from the Boise area of Idaho.

Did a version of All Trails loop that was beautiful with leaves turning. Did notice, though, that All Trails trail names seldom correlated to trail markers or locator maps. Still, lovely hike.

This is a great mile long cave exploration. It is also established and safe. Be sure to respect the bats and learn about white nose syndrome.

Here is a video I made on the place:

Wonderful short trail. These waterfalls are worth the drive.

I had a great time here. Most of the beaches are a hike from the car, so they are less crowded and beautiful. There are a lot of stops, so I would pick 3 or so for the day. Here is a video of my time at Sam Boardman.

As others mentioned this is a very steep out and back which is runnable but requires scrambling on occasion, not only because of some scattered rock features, but also the steep grade. The majority of the hike is deep in woods and you don't get the view to the end but the view was worth it.

Beautiful views and nicely designed trails make this one of my favorite trail runs of this year. I did this counter clockwise which I recommend because the initial climb features tight switchbacks which I personally prefer to ascend. Careful on the descent as you get to Multnomah Falls as foot traffic is heavy there

Great hike! Like others said, it's pretty easy until you get close to the falls. I wanted the money shot, so it required some trekking across the river and some climbing onto some rocks, but nothing too scary. Once you get close to the falls, you can feel the mist from the water. Feels really good if you go up on a hot, summer day!

Such a beautiful place for a view of Mount Hood! The lake itself is breathtaking as well. Wait for the sun to start coming down and you'll get an awesome reflection of the mountain's peak in the water. The loop isn't necessary to do if you're just there for the view. The best vantage point is right at the beginning.

The parking lot at the bottom has limited spots, but you can also park along the road if the lot is full. I chose to do this hike later in the day in the middle of July so I could get some shade along the way. It's uphill pretty much the whole way, with some climbing required over these gnarly rocks. Lots of room along the path at the top for people to sit down, picnic, and just enjoy the view.

I'm so glad I toughed it out and did this hike before the Eagle Creek wildfire happened. I don't know who much the fire took away from the view. But the viewpoint at the top provides a beautiful vantage point of the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side. Honestly, you could get a view that's just as breathtaking by driving to Vista House at Crown Point. But the view is so much more rewarding when you have to work for it.
