We were able to get to the top without spikes, but we certainly slid around and took a few falls. Overall, the intense uphill battle is completely worth the beautiful scenery, friendly birds, and memories. Dress warm-top is covered in snow!


Nice paved trail, lots of friendly people, pretty lake.

Shortish and very muddy when we were there, but the forest is beautiful and you would never know you were so near to the houses.

Beautiful views, great for all ages. My daughter loved it.

breath taking views

Quick hike to the beautiful falls. We'll maintained, a bit of incline but doable. Very open trail, only saw two couples coming out of the trail head as we were going in. No bathroom facilities, parking across from trailhead. Dirt road going to trailhead was full of pot holes. Add extra time driving there.

This trail needs some TLC. Kersee and had a great time. You will want/need snow shoes for the last ¾ of a mile. Or post hole in 2 feet of snow.

Loved it!! Went today by myself and beat the crowd... not much people during the week, especially early morning!! Took me 1.5 hours to go up there, pretty decent pace. Not too difficult if you're in shape!! I would say moderate for me... Also no more snow! Definitely will be back when it's spring

Nice hike through the woods. When I got there (Monday) the parking lot was packed, but there are so many routes and trails in this park that the trail I was on was uncrowded! Really enjoyable waterfall and creek. No views, but I really enjoyed my walk. Nice and peaceful. Will return to do Long View Peak in a few weeks.

It’s somewhat crowded at the summit. And the view is just so-so. But the trail itself is quite nice.

nice hike snow and icey about 3/4 of the way up so be careful..lake is frozen over but the views where spectacular

Incredible hike with amazing views pack spikes if you are going anytime in the winter or early spring

Great short hike with an amazing view at the end. For those with fear of heights, I think you can manage this hike pretty well. The mid section I would say is where you really have to work at it, nothing crazy though.

Don’t be like me and leave your camelback at home. Used my water bottle instead and managed. Would of been nice to have my hands free going up and down. Careful on your way down because in the steep descent and loose rocks etc.

Part of the trail is basically a gravel road. Prefer a wooded trail.

Beautiful late winter/early spring hike. Sun was shining and because the bulk of this hike is exposed, I was able to hike shirtless to attempt to tan. The panoramic views of the Gorge and Mt Hood keep you motivated as you climb to the top; I imagine once the wildflowers bloom those will also be a great motivator. I particularly enjoyed being on the section just before the forest (the highest point).

The trail wasn’t crowded but we also went mid-week and started before 10am. I loved coming down little Moab and watching the mountain bikers, they’re crazy!!!

This was a beautiful hike. There is a great variety of things to see. I enjoyed the undulating terrain. We had a group consisting of young & old who found it to be slightly challenging at a few points but was easily overcome with little assistance and rest periods. I like that there are many different modalities that were able to participate as well as the multiple different routes that were available. I found walking sticks useful it help me over the rocks and roots. Highly recommend!

We did this hike on 3/18/18 and loved it! No snow on the ground. Benches conveniently placed for resting. Most people gave up after the Lower Falls so the higher you go, the less people you see.

A hidden little gem. Perfect for a quick weekday hike with beautiful views. Peaceful.

Nice quick hike with a waterfall in the middle.

Run run I run it too!

Super fun hike, did it a couple weeks ago. Although both parking lots were overflowed, there was enough room up top to really enjoy it! Really rewarding views

This was a great trail and I really enjoyed my walk/hike today on it! It’s is mostly unpaved with a paved section that follows downsize a running creek. The day was beautiful, but with the trail sort of going down, what I would call a crevasse between to higher sections filled with trees, it stayed a little chilly. It was totally worth the hike down and the beautiful sound waterfront end was a magnificent reward! It was lightly traveled today and I pretty much had the long stretch of beach to myself and my dog. I would say this more an easy trail and believe the intermediate rating is because your hike going back is all uphill. I would consider it a little strenuous for an older out of shape person but it is definitely easily doable and gives you that accomplished feeling. My tracker showed my walk at 3.10 miles from start to end. Trail starts at a weird location next to the building on the left.

We hiked in early March. Still snow packed in some areas but views are beautiful at the top! Was confused by all of the turf laid out at the top until we realized it was for paragliders!

Very poorly marked trails. Thank goodness for cell phone location tracking because I ended up off the trail multiple times trying to figure out where to go.

Aptly challenging trail with views worth the sweat at the top.

Amazing views!! The wild flowers were still working on coming up so I’m sure in a few weeks it’ll be even better when they’re in full bloom! No shade until the top so bring the sun screen! Wouldn’t rate it as a hard though, moderate trail for sure.

This is a nice hike, not too challenging. It’s pretty steep in the beginning, evens out for a bit, and then gets steep again before you get to the top. Muddy in some places, no snow or ice. It was cloudy and foggy but still worth the hike. I’ll have to go again on a sunny day.

Beautiful walk, short and easy

yes it might be almost 5 miles long but it is a walk in the park good for beginning hikers dogs and with physical limitations
