    Beautiful, butt kicker hike with lovely views of Mt. Hood. Wasn’t too busy for a Saturday. A few blown down trees to navigate, but not bad at all. The trail is narrow in some spots, so it was nice to see most people covering up their faces when passing by. Road 20 is closed. Take Still Creek Rd instead. Happy hiking!

    Steep! Your quads may be sore. Took green canyon to hunchback then over to devils peak, just a bit under 11 miles. In late June there was a small amount of running water you cross on hunchback trail. I took 2 liters and was fine. A little grown over on portions of hunchback but green canyon was mostly clear. 1-2 blow downs but nothing crazy. I’d recommend everyone do this trail once, it’s punishing though so I may not repeat it unless I’m in the mood for a training hike.

    Difficult but fun! Expect lots of snow (5+ feet) during winter months.

    The water was flowing pretty good a couple of weeks back. Surprisingly few people out. Fungi starting to show up.

    Trail in good condition with few blowdowns. Gorgeous views up the Salmon River Valley, then, from Devil’s Peak, of Mts Hood and Jefferson. Wonderful fall colors. Would be a nice, easy two-night backpack trip.

    A very nice hike with few people (encountered only 10 on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon). The beauty of this hike really begins once exiting the old road and entering into the trees. The understory is open with good sight lines through the trees. The forest floor is blanketed with greenery. Rhododendrons are beginning to bloom at the lower elevations. Just below the summit the trail passes through a grove of rhodies that won't bloom for another two weeks. Of course the jewel is the view from the top; Mt Hood is prominent to the northeast, and the Washington summits of St. Helens, Rainier, and Adams are all visible on a clear day. Mt Jefferson holds the southern view.

    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.

    We went on this hike 5/14/19. The trail was in good shape with just a few small trees across the trail to step over. It was forecasted to have showers all day so we had rain gear on and got wet, not by rain, but from the large shrubs next to the trail. We ran into patches of snow at about 4100 feet elevation that were soft enough to walk through but deep enough in spots we needed our GAIA to keep on the trail. When we were about 0.2 mikes from the top, the snow suddenly was 3 feet or higher on a steep incline with a drop off to the right. While we had mini spikes to put on we felt it was too risky to chance a fall at that point. It was cloudy with limited views of the valley but not the mountains.

    Did this hike 5/13/19 Cell reception is sporadic for Verizon here, nothing in lower areas. Parked at West Salmon River Trailhead (lots of break-ins must happen here, lots of broken glass in the parking areas) at 3:42am, two other cars in the lot. Road is paved until the last bridge on east salmon river road. 2 porta potties that smelled clean in the am, no TP though. Took Green Canyon Way trail to Hunchback trail to get to Devils Peak Fire Lookout. 14.14 miles and 3588 elevation gain moving time 8.5hrs total time 11hrs. From west salmon walk down to green canyon campground, straight across from the campground is Green Canyon Way trailhead. Green Canyon camground is closed at this time, but there is day use parking available here when open, need a NW forrest pass or america the beautiful pass to park in this area of Mt. Hood. Green Canyon Way trail is a very steep tiny trail, you climb quickly in a short (3.5 miles to hunchback) amount of miles. There are a couple of really sketchy areas on Green Canyon, but most of the logs have been cut that were on the trail. Trail is in decent condition with good trail signs. Hunchback trail section I did was nice, mostly flat with some steep sections, couple areas where you could loose the trail due to blow-down debris. There is a water trail marker on hunchback and a neat little camp site. 3 miles from hunchback to devils peak. Snow starts when you here running water and there are a couple of big snowy areas, but mostly sporadic snow covering the trail. Follow the boot path or make sure you have some sort of navigation as you can loose your way. Cool creek trail is still snow covered near the top, not sure about the lower area, but as far as I could see there was at least a foot of snow. Devils Peak Fire Lookout was really cool! Well worth the hike to get there. I did not check out the top or inside as people were staying there when I went. No stunning views at the lookout, but some space to have a seat and take a break. Returned hike on the same trails as I did not know what to expect on the other trails. This is most definitely a difficult hike, be prepared.
