    Great views on a clear day. Not a difficult hike.

    Super beautiful area. July had tons of mosquitoes. Trailhead rough and needs 4wd.

    Beautiful, long hike through wildflowers and open vistas on the way to Green Lakes. After lunch a shorter hike—at first along the magnificent lava flow and flower lined creek, then through tall hemlocks and past rushes of cascades back to the car.

    Great falls. Can be hot and dusty. Steep if you press on to Upper Chush Falls.

    First three miles was through a burned out area. Some nice views and the wildflowers were in bloom.

    This hike was beautiful! Still some snow areas in some areas along the trail and some ice in the lake. Great trail that has a more gradual incline over the ascent. Trail Is along the river for much of it.

    Great spot that should not be attempted in June (or until later in July) without GPS, crampons or snowshoes (or at least Yaktrax). Water sources difficult to find under snow, and very easy to lose the trail. Great views and varied terrain make this a hike I’d love to repeat without the added challenge of 3-5+ feet of snow for 80% of the loop. Major mosquito activity at the trailhead and into the first few miles, bring deet.

    Upper Chush Falls was shockingly high. Cascade Falls was cool and Lower Chush falls was larger than expected and amazing.

    Strenuous & steep, but well worth the views (we luckily had great visibility yesterday). Exposed trail after the first 1.5 miles. Hiking poles definitely recommended! The 3 dogs in our group made it to the summit with us without any issue. Pack extra water for them as it is scarce along the way.

    Some snow and a few patches of mud in the afternoon but weather was perfect. Road from Todd Lake TH to Broken Top TH is extremley rough, you need a high clearance vehicle. Great hike!

    The road to Broken Top TH was rough! I have a 2013 Outback and it was sketchy in a couple of spots. Saw a few Crosstreks that had a better time due to the shorter wheelbase. Vault toilet at the TH, not in bad shape and plenty of TP. The hike in was so nice and mellow, actually descended about 600’ to Green Lakes. The elevation didn’t start til 4.5-5 miles then it went up relentlessly. The ridgeline was exposed and rock was chossy but the path was wide enough and pretty straightforward. Getting up the summit block entailed some route finding and some backtracking, but I climbed up a small crack to the ledge then bouldered up a couple of sections. The summit was small but had commanding views! I down climbed to the first ledge then went to the north to down climb a slightly less exposed route. I then took the scree slope down, thankful for putting on gaiters! Still had to dump out all the dust that collected in my shoes. I hooked back up with the trail just above Green Lakes and headed back to the car. I only had trail runners, gaiters and one trekking pole. No snow equipment needed and the section that some people rope up on was sketchy if you don’t have comfort bouldering and with exposure. I did just fine soloing but a fall would’ve been hazardous. Car to car was about 6:40, starting at 7:20 am.

    First backpacking trip with kids, ages 15, 12, 9, & 7. Moderately difficult for a short portion of the trail, basically going into and out of the lake basin. Stunning setting with nearby waterfalls to hike to. Great camping sites at Obsidian Creek and Linton Creek, however the site at Obsidian Creek is the nicer of the sites. Great Lake for swimming and fishing-bring a pole or a floatie. Extra bonus sighting cougar prints along the lakeshore.

    There is snow along this trail in spots all summer, but it is passable by mid July with just a few snow crossings. The hard part of this hike is getting past Broken Hand. If you go all the way to Broken Hand it is nearly impossible to get around: you can try to cross the steep glacial field to the north, which is dangerous; you can try to free climb the rocks, which is dangerous; or you can walk back on the trail about 100 yards or so and find the lesser marked trail that passes to the south of Broken Hand. If you decide to go south of Broken Hand, there are numerous trails to the main trial that gets to the lake and the trip is worth it - a blue lake surrounded on all sides by steep banks of snow.

    We tried this hike back in May and couldn’t make it to the falls due to the deep snow. Today was much easier with clear trails. It’s a slight incline to the first falls, but you then need to descend a fairly steep slope to reach the base of the falls, which is where you get the best view. There is another set of smaller falls a short distance further, and the much taller Upper Chush Falls is about 0.6 miles beyond the first falls. The last part of that trail gets pretty steep but the view is well with it. Total round trip was 5.8 miles and took us 3 hours including a lunch break. Lots of good scenery along the way, including mountain views, the meandering Whychus Creek, small streams to cross, and a crystal clear pond with bright green algae on the bottom. It was also good timing for several different wildflower varieties.
