    The hike is excellent with good view but the final segment at Skibowl might be improved. The route as shown seems to go down the Skibowl ski slopes which were steep and dusty and shared with mountain bikers. I suggest using the longer but less steep and better trails to the east side of Skibowl to make the descent from the top to the warming hut.

    This trail has lots of views and is maintained up to the first “summit”. It’s a lot of uphill but it is a lot of fun and worth it!

    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.

    Easy route with a good view of the mountain at mirror lake. Once we reached the lake we went on to the first viewpoint near Tom Dick and Harry mountain. Worth the extra effort for an even more spectacular view! Lot’s of people and dogs around in the afternoon, would recommend going earlier in the day. Don’t forget to buy a park pass!

    Really great hike. While rated difficult it should be labeled moderate. Not that tough. Amazing views of Hood, Adams, Rainer, St Helens and Jefferson on a clear day. Feels like you can reach out and touch Hood. Nice to walk around Mirror Lake also.

    Easy hike for some great views of Hood. Just get there early to beat the crowds.

    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.

    It was my first time snowshowing so I wanted to make sure we had more than enough time. We went started earlier in the day (about 8 am) on Thursday and it was the perfect weather. Clear and sunny with fresh powder. We snowshoed across the actual lake (accidentally) since the paths weren't clear, but the landscape was beautiful and totally worth the trip. The route started to get busier as we headed back so i would suggest going earlier to have it to yourself.

    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.

    We did this hike 10-2-18 on a cloudy day and no recent rain so a dry trail. The trail is mostly soil covered by needles and leaves so easy to hike. The fall colors were starting to turn and some Salomon were spawning in the Salmon river. The trail was clear of logs and there was evidence on the Hunchback trail going south to Devils peak of extensive trail maintenance with fresh cuts visible on at least 30-40 trees over 2 feet in diameter. Thanks to those who do this hard work.
