    Hiked up to Bald Mtn from Lolo Pass, east on the Timberline a couple of miles and then back down McGee Creek Trail. While likely not the best season for this hike, it was a beautiful forested hike with great views. The trail was in good shape and easy grade. There are many huckleberry bushes, so a late summer hike might find these fruiting. Due to clouds, our view of the Mt Hood peak was blocked.

    Able to all of the nearby Peaks given the clear skies, there were people but not a ton and not everyone hit the top due some snow.

    A historic trail. Trail head begins at Timberline Lodge. Trail takes you around the mountain for 57 miles at the 6,000 foot level in Wilderness country

    I’d rate this 4.5 if I could. Parking at Timberline lodge was easy. There were many hikers on the trail. If you use All Trails for trail discovery and research—it’s very good for that—their info is way off, as usual. This particular hike is not yet listed in Gaia (not sure why, it’s a popular hike). I used two GPS devices and measured approximately 13 miles (not including long walk from and to the parking lot). And, measured ~3,100 ft elevation gain. Also, this hike is not that hard, don’t be intimated by the All Trails description. I’ve done hard trails before, and this is not hard. On a difficulty scale of 5, I’d rate it 3.5 due only to length and moderate elevation gain. This definitely is not an easy hike, but it’s also not hard. There are some muddy, slippery spots, some steep drop offs, and one creek/river crossing that may challenge some people—my balance isn’t great, but with the help of hiking poles, I made it across both times with little problem and without taking off shoes. Overall, this is a great hike, very scenic. I’m a fairly fast hiker, it took me about 4.5 hours, and I stopped multiple times for pics and several times for water and food. If you’re concerned with the distance or elevation gain, start early and give yourself plenty of time. It’s worth it!

    Quintessential PNW beauty. Walked along the PCT right below the timber line, then looped around above the trees thru Paradise Valley - an area of alpine meadows full of spectacular wildflowers. Waterfalls and creek crossings so there’s available water. Challenging in distance but overall not too difficult.

    The snow melted earlier than usual and our hike 7-22 was just after most of the snow was gone. The flowers were in full bloom with meadows filled with Alpine lilies, lupine, paint brush and at least 30 different types of flowers. Good patches of tiger lilies and Washington lilies. The trails were clear and with a sunny day the views were excellent.

    Beautiful hike. Started at LoLo Pass. One draw back was the potty stop on the woods across from the trailhead was full of paper. Please if you must use paper put it in a zip lock bag and deal with it appropriately.

    This was a good time to go as the snow was almost gone and wildflowers were in full bloom. The trails were in good shape as well.

    A trail that does not see a lot of use. It’s a long uphill climb under trees, with a view of Mt Hood on an open slope just beyond 5 miles. Continue on to Cast Lake for camping or to the East Zigzag peak for great views.

    It was cloudy out, but still a very enjoyable hike. The beginning of the trail was wide with a park like vibe. As we climbed to the lake the trail crossed many small streams in forest and meadow settings. There were a few muddy areas, but they were easily crossed by rock hopping. Near the first large stream crossing we met a backpacker (with a shotgun strapped to the top of his pack!) that warned us of a bear in the area moving upstream. No sign of a bear, but we were on high alert through the area. Burnt Lake itself was wrapped in low clouds that obscured Mt. Hood when we arrived and we chose to push on to the top of East Zi-Zag for our lunch break. The climb went by quickly with views opening up at the saddle near the summit. To treat ourselves for the climb we enjoyed cups of rosé and cold(-ish) pizza in the clouds. The way back down was mostly uneventful, but still enjoyable.

    Great hike if you don't mind some vertical gain. Didn't have views since it was cloudy but you do get some great views of the surrounding area and Mt Hood. Flowers were just starting to bloom.

    Mainly did this trip in winter. Packed in to the Tilly Jane Guard Station on skis. If the snow is in good condition skiing is great but can get icy and getting down could get difficult.

    Have done this hike a number of times. Easy hike that can be done anytime of the year as long as visibilty is good and you are prepared for the conditions. On clear days the great views you have from Timberline Lodge just get better as you hike up to Silcox.
