Great trail for hybrid hiking/trail running. Beautiful waterfalls, wasn’t too busy today. With spring rains there were no views but it was a fun hike with elevation. Some mud pits in high traffic areas but mostly in good condition. Will definitely be repeating in the summer to check out the views.

Beautiful hike! It's a pretty intense few miles up to the summit of Hamilton Mountain with beautiful views along the way and a nice variety of scenery. It was rainy and windy today when we climbed it, so I can't say much about the view at the top, but the trail itself was great. We were surprised to find a little snow at the top, but not too much! Looking forward to trying it again on a sunny day!

Fun hike with our dogs. It was pretty crowded early Saturday morning but still worth it. Beautiful views!

This trail is popular, so I would recommend hiking on weekdays. It’s the perfect amount of challenging climbs with gradual trails, throughout many different types of geography. Totally worth it for the view—though the best views are just before the summit (I would say). Wear proper hiking footwear!

Great hike, I think it is definitely a new favorite. Lots of people on the portion to the waterfall, but hardly saw anyone up to the summit. Very muddy and a lot of snow, but it is well worth going through for the views.

great hike. awesome views

Really beautiful alternative with all the Oregon trail closures. The climb is not as bad as dog mountain

I was literally stupefied by some of the views on this trail! It was well worth the effort to climb all the way to the top of the mountain- and it WAS effort. I’m pretty sure this trail deserves a ‘hard’ rating- but SO worth it.

What a beautiful hike! A bit muddy but otherwise it was perfect.

Nice rainy Sunday hike with family. Medium traffic, lots of dogs and friendly folks. The first stretch is a bit of a climb. Absolutely beautiful.

Lots of bridges and great waterfall views. Well maintained. Very popular trail. Many hikers with dogs.

Great trail. Beautiful waterfall and stream system partway up the trail, which is definitely worth a few minutes pause. Quite a burner going up. Trail winds up the mountain between some major (and beautiful) rock formations. There are a couple great spots for a view prior to reaching the summit, but there's not much in the way of a vista once you're up top. Pretty easy coming back down once you make it to the equestrian trail. Be forewarned, though -- it's a mud fest right now, which adds an extra challenge.

Was muddy at the start and at the summit today. But beautiful views!!

Great hike.

Love this hike. I go when I want a good workout but I always leave with so much more...

No snow at the top, a little bit muddy but not too slick! Incredible views

Pretty views even on a rainy day.

Hiked on 11/28/17. Did the loop but took Don’s Cutoff on our descent. It rained the whole time, but who cares when you’re prepared for it.

I love this hike! We took the Hardy way up and the original Hamilton trail back down for a 7.77 loop. If def go back and do more exploring on the Hardy Ridge side of the mountain.

Despite all the rain, the trail was very manageable with only a few big puddles and slippery spots. The views at the saddle were great despite the very low clouds and wind.

Will come back in the dry season so i can have a picnic up top!

hiking boots strongly recommended when it's wet out. trail is well maintained; it's worth checking out the side trails for better views of the gorge.

Finishing stretch of two night trip! Glad we were heading downhill!

The trail is in great shape, lots of elevation to get to those gorgeous views. We started early (8:00am) thank goodness because this trail is heavily trafficked and there were loads of dogs, almost all off leash - fortunately we met most of them on the way down.
Even so, the gorge views and the beautiful fall colors made it worth every step of my first trip up Hamilton.

Such a good hike!

This is definitely a trail on the more difficult end of the moderate spectrum! However the trail is beautiful with plenty of sneak peaks at the view along the way.

did part of this trail sunday. started at the bridge down the hill from curly creek trail. hiked towards bolt camp. went couple miles past tyhat and had to turn around due to the trail being totally flooded with no way to cross the water without getting into mid calf deep. many places also had water crossing over the trail, but we were able to either jump the areas where our waterproof shoes were sufficient of we were able to cross a fallen tree (very fun by the way). beware, animals have been eating their prey on the trail, so pay attention to your surroundings. also, the shelter at bolt camp smelled like a barn, so tthe must be using that to sleep in. Other than that, beautiful scenery

Beautiful trail

It was beautiful and challenging in a few spots. Ready to do it again on a little nicer day

Didn’t get the views due to clouds and rain,but still plenty of beauty to be had even in the cover clouds.

The view was amazing!

Great hike with breathtaking views at the top near Loowit trail. There is a short segment of maybe 0.1mile near the end that is a narrow with a steep dropoff. The trail is made of loose stones and gravel, and has started to give way slightly at 2 points. Use caution.
