Beautiful hike. A steep down to start, but not too bad, and so worth it. Take a dip at one of the pools toward the end.

It was a very easy trail to find and follow! The views were magnificent!

Beautiful hike on a hot day because you’re almost entirely in shade. The forest was lovely as was the crystal clear creek the trail followed. Lovely waterfalls and not too many people on the trail. We took our dog on a leash and he loved it. Take plenty of water and a snack. It’s a nice easy hike on a well maintained trail.

Hiked 192 with my walking club on Saturday. We went to the end of the trail and at the top we connected with the 132 Observation Peak trail & hiked down the mountain.... overall it was 18.23 miles & 3,444 elevation according to my fitbit. This is definitely a hard trail up & it looked like most hikers do this loop over a weekend. Was pretty moderate up till the 5 mile mark when you start climbing up the mountain on switchbacks. Most of us did great, I struggled on the incline but made the top. There were wild blueberries & orchids along the way & quite a few log bridges to cross over the creek. It’s beautiful & the waterfall platform was breathtaking.

The road to the falls was a bit washed away but seemingly managed. I'd suggest a SUV or pickup. It was worth the trip though because the falls were beautiful. You can't beat the fresh smell of a waterfall from the ice caps of a mountain. Precious and spectacular. The rumble of the falls is absolutely a sound I won't yet forget. Go and enjoy!

The dust and ash through the "restricted zone" was quite aggravating to breathe, especially over an extended amount of time. The trail itself is not very demanding, with elevation gain and loss mostly through the "restricted zone". Be wary of filtering water through streams in and near the "restricted zone" as they are loaded with silt. We filtered water through a clear-looking stream and our filter had a fair amount of silt in it afterwards and required back-flushing.

Went early on Friday July 6th, only one other car at TH. Challenging hike to Dog Mtn, wildflowers drying out but views gorgeous. My intention was to cross over to Augspurger. Dropped down into valley trail, very cool and well maintained. Took Dog / Augspurger trail split and had to turn back after about 1/4 mi. Trail to Augspurger extremely overgrown right now...lost the trail completely. Hike down Augspurger side of trail back to parking lot was easy, several people hiking up this route. Lot was almost full at this time. Definitely good idea to get there early

Loved this shirt hike! Great for kids and the water felt amazing!

Great trail, great views of the Columbia River gorge, Mt Saint Helens and Mt Adams. Native historical site at the top. One of my favorite hikes.

Really enjoyed this hike. It was a nice easy elevation gain with big rewards along the way. Between the old growth forest and the blue pools I was happy, but then to get some waterfall action on top of it, made for a happy girl. We had a 4 year old with us and she did great with the breaks. So many cool camp spots along the way too. I think we will come back and do as backpacking practice for our little

Great hike! Short and sweet. Great spot to have lunch on a clear day!

heartbreak all the way! that was a good challenge. took my 16 year old son on the hike. it's a good hike although you are in the woods for a large portion of the hike with minimal views. once you get past heartbreak the views are great.

Difficult, recommend poles! The terrain was super unique, so fun climbing the boulders. But this hike is quite challenging. Recommends a full day and plenty of snacks and water

Beautiful old growth with many saprophytic orchids out today. 5.9 miles to waterfall overlook. Nice campsites around 5 miles.

Took a few days to visit Mount Adams at Takhlakh Lake. The snow is semi melted so the roads are passable in any vehicle (we made it in a prius). Hardly saw any other people which was great. Took a 1.1 mile hike around the lake which is rated as great for families but half of the trail is covered in snow, some places a few inches amd others a few feet so it can be hard to find the trail at this time. We also did the offshoot trail of about the same distance up to Goat rocks to see views of Mount Rainier. Camp ground officially opens on the 22nd of June.

Great hike to get your blood pumping! Trailheah is not well market at the start, so be sure you don't miss it. Once you get down to the fork after the parking lot, it starts at the small wooden sign to your right. Do not follow the wide gravel path to your left or else you'll walk about a mile (downhill and back up) out of your way!

Other than that the trail is challenging, but the view at the top is SO worth it.

If you're looking for a real challenge, this is it. The only access is from Bonneville Trailhead, making it a roughly 15-16 mile hike roundtrip. The last 1-2 miles nearest the summit are sketchy, including loose rock talus slopes and STEEP inclines--but make it to the top & you can call yourself a champion!! Amazing, diverse wildflowers near the summit when I went in late May.

Such a fun little trail! Can be very crowded but we had a great time hiking on it.

Steep trail I didn’t quite expect . But fine.
Not well maintained yet makes you feel like you are on a true adventure. Wasn’t impressed at first but was blown away when I got to the top. Spectacular views - Indian Sanctuary. called Spirit Mountain.
Very unique and amazing. Serenity.
Careful walking down as the dirt gravel is not very forgiving in places . Recommend poles which I didn’t have.

This longer loop is absolutely worth it. I would highly recommend getting to the parking area early, since it fills up quite quickly. The elevation is high and windy at the top, so be sure to bring layers. Footwear is key on this trek as well, since many of the upper switchbacks get quite steep. Also be advised, that day-use fees are not obligatory throughout weekdays. Overall, this is definitely one of the best hikes to compliment the fewer trails available to explore with the closed Oregon-side trails.

Hike on 6/1/18 and it was breathtaking. Definitely on the hard side. But so worth it. Wild flowers everywhere! Bring a jacket for the top! Coming down was hard on the knees for me I need poles, lots of people had them. Parking is very limited so get there early!

Over Memorial Day weekend, backpacked the Lewis River Trail from Curly Falls to NF 90 and back over 3 days. 15.5 miles each way. This trail follows the Lewis River. There are a couple areas to camp along the trail in the beginning that have multiple sites and a few singles salt and peppered along the way. The trail is surprisingly hilly with a couple long flat areas to lengthen your stride. Of course water is plentiful. There are a few sections where the trail leaves the riverside but there are flowing streams in these areas.

There are 3 major falls along the trail that attract visitors. Upper Falls, Middle Falls and Lower Falls. These falls are beautiful. Lower Falls has a large campground great for a base camp then either drive or hike to the other two falls. This weekend was a particular busy weekend being a Holiday weekend, yet there were plenty of times when you were away from the crowd. Each falls can be driven to with a trail linking the parking areas to the falls.

The Lewis River Trail also attracts mountain bikers and they are allowed on the trail. A lot of mountain bikers seemed to start at the Curly Falls entrance and ride the larger portion if not all of the trail. They were all curtious to hikers.

This is a great trail to hike and the falls are a MUST SEE. The falls areas are popular and can be crowded. Families, kids, dogs and mountain bikers all enjoy the trail.

Hiked 05/29/18.

Steep but short. View is truly beautiful.

Fun hike! Chinook Creek Falls was a beauty!

This is a good short hike just over 2 miles and small side trail to cool rock formation with forest and river view. this trail is a little steep!

Absolutely incredible views! Steeper than I expected in the beginning and tons of rocks to overcome but worth every single bit of the views. Phenomenal!

Hiked 05/13/18, went up to see the sunset.

Great hike. We're first timers and though there are a couple steep areas (right near the parking lot, killer on the way back) it was a fantastic experience. Great camp areas; though most of them are at the end there are a few in the first 1-2 miles and some nicely hidden ones at the bottom of the first major waterfall if you take the trail downhill.

Road is paved all the way up but there are fairly regular washouts and bulges that will hit you hard if you don't watch out. Our Outback did great but anything too low might be dicey.

Overall amazing, just amazing!

Fun hike. Super steep. The distance can fool you.
