    Hiked on 8/8/20. Trailhead still closed. Started from Wyeth street. Gravel forest road. Then Off to the right, is a path that will get you to the trail. From car to split of loop is about 1.5miles or so. Clocked about 11 (23,000 steps anyway lol) miles RT. Did a lot of “lookouts”. I did the little peak and also climbed to the top of Indian point. Just be careful. Went right at the split. Took me 3.5hrs to get to “top”, including the 3100 peak. Could t get through the deadman part of loop. Trail is overgrown. But way overgrown there. Pretty views. The route back down was way less steep. Or more gradual anyway. Ran back to car. Took me an hour. Only saw 1 other person.

    This is a hike from the Herman Creek TH to the Dry Creek Falls via Herman Creek Trail, Herman Creek Bridge Trail, and PCT. Overall, the trails were in good conditions with some overgrown vegetation in a few spots. Not much views on the hike. The Dry Creek Falls were nice with a lot of water going over the top.

    This trail has one of the best views in the gorge, but is also one of my least favorite. There is absolutely no escape or serenity on this trail. It is completely overrun and overused to the point that makes me feel guilty about treading on the path. I believe this trail should be closed to allow it to recover. I would recommend checking out Forest Park or Multnomah Falls for the folks in the city interested in doing this hike.

    The wildflowers on this hike are unparalleled to anywhere else in the gorge. Take plenty of water, sunblock, and of course, pictures on this hike during the springtime. It's one of my favorite places...it's also many other folk's favorite places, so be aware that there will be crowds on the weekends.

    Beautiful warm spring day. The views are amazing, looking East down the Columbia river and West to Mt Hood. The flowers are starting to bloom. There are so many options for hikes in the area with numerous trailheads. Beware, Ticks are out, one got me and I found 3 on my dogs hair.

    Started in the Multnohma falls parking lot but went up the Wahkeena falls side. No snow on the trails. It was muddy in places but great hike. Took the quick out of route stop to the Wahkeena springs, watching the water flow from the earth is awesome it just pours out. There was a fair amount of people throughout the trail. The weather was perfect, started with long sleeves and was able to get to short sleeves.

    This trail is one of the most crowded trails in the gorge. There are more people on this trail than you would find in Forest Park, and that’s in February. Summer time can have even more. It’s over-hiked, so the path is extremely muddy. That said, the view at the top is awesome.

    It appears this is a trail less traveled. You can see the original trail but there is a new version in the start and looks to be grassroots. Survey tape designates the trail if you get off course. There is some scrambling for the view point to the top to make it a loop. Not an open summit but there are some great views of the gorge along the hike.

    Well marked for winter activities. Was not needed today regardless of the snow and you could still see the path. Hit snow as I got to some elevation and was blazing the trail. Can’t complain about having the place to yourself and being the first through fresh snow. Beautiful, sunny day. Was all alone until the way down when I decided to add on the Dog Mountain side. Ensure you have traction devices for the Dog Mountain side.

    2nd best hike of the vacation. If you go to the top of the falls (we all know that’s never the best place to view it) you might as well make the climb worthwhile by adding 3-4 more falls. It’s not much more climbing but well worth the effort. A couple places are a little scary if you are afraid of heights like I am, but are generally fine unless you need to pass people.

    If you go up, I suggest enjoying part of the creek trail. It’s better than the top of the falls. If you aren’t up to the whole thing, the seating area by the 4th switchback - that switchback above it is your last great view.

    This is a moderately difficult trail with 11 switchbacks. 1 mile each way out and back. The trail is paved for nearly the entire distance. There are very steep drop-offs off the side of the trail for part of the way so those with children should be careful. There are several look out spots which afford nice views of the falls and of the Columbia River Gorge looking westward.

    On the first day of fall, the lower 1/4-1/3 mile is a little muddy and some of the scree areas are slippery. Near the top, about 2 miles in, there’s a gauntlet of poison oak. Otherwise, just a beautiful, iconic Gorge hike. Do it during the week and avoid the traffic jams!

    Very enjoyable, although there was quite an abundance of poison oak. The hike to Gillette Lake is 2.5 miles from the parking lot. Trail conditions were normal. Views are limited, but there is a longer stretch you can do to see a waterfall. Lake is stocked with fish. A few campsites are near the lake, this would be a nice spot for an overnight.

    Loved this hike. We’re training for Mt.Baker and wanted some elevation gain. This gave us 3,000 feet in relatively short hike. We went counter clockwise as the ground was more dirt and pine needles which made it easier on the knees. The summit to Nick Eaton was no view at all. So many trees everywhere. Overall nice hike but tough for anyone not used to going straight up.

    Herman Creek Trail #406 to Gorton Creek Trail #408 to Ridge Cutoff Trail #437 to Nick Eaton Trail #447. Took us approx. 5 hrs round trip with breaks and hanging out at the point. Beautiful color/texture contrast with burnt trees and new foliage/wildflowers. Amazing gorge views throughout. Fairly challenging for us novice hikers, but nothing undoable for newbs. Going up on the steep, switchback-y Nick Eaton might save your knees vs going down it.

    I intended to hike a ways up the Mt Defiance trail but took a wrong turn. Near the top the trail narrows and is overgrown with young trees. I went as far as my stamina would let me. All in all I would say it was a good effort for the first hike after several years.

    Hiked up to Green Point Mountain summit on May 12, 2019 from the Herman Creek trailhead and continuing on #406 until forking off onto the Nick Eaton Trail #447. As was the case last year, much of the trail on Nick Eaton ridge is filled with dry needles, burnt bark, and downed limbs making the trail easy to lose if you're not focused. Once you hit the Gorton Creek trail #408, you enter the unburnt forest which has preserved much of the trail until you get to around 4,200' of elevation. At that point, it's snow up to the summit. The depth of the snow varies from 2'-3' all the way to the top - all of it a hard, rippled snow. There is no trace of a trail to be found, so have GPS ready if you plan to do this hike since it's roughly 2 miles of snow crushing to the top. You'll also encounter bear tracks along the way although I did not spot any black bear on this day's adventure. Most of the climb is gradual until you get to the final 100' climb where you'll need to just find the safest way up to the top. Once at the summit, it's nice and clear of snow since it's been exposed to the sun for some time now. The view was spectacular and all mountains in the area were clearly visible including Mt. Ranier. On the way down I completed the loop by taking the Herman Creek trail all the way back to the trailhead. Fortunately, going downhill in the snow wasn't too bad since the descent was gradual. After about three quarters of a mile down from the summit at the Wahtum Lake Road junction all snow was gone. The rest of the hike down included rushing creeks and waterfalls from the season's snow melt. Awesome hike which will give your legs a good workout, especially once you start up the Nick Eaton trail. Would give this hike 5 stars if it wasn't for the condition of the trail from Nick Eaton ridge to the summit. Still, if you have a GPS unit, this is definitely a hike to put on your list.

    Our first time here since the devastating fire in the gorge. We were not disappointed. While there are burned areas with tree snags it is wonderful to see the lush green returning to the forest floor. And the wildflowers are especially beautiful. The views on the hike are even better than before. And of course the views from the top of Angels Rest are amazing

    Hiked 5/6/19 13.6 miles with 5249 elevation gain. Did a loop hike starting with Defiance trail, to Mt. Defiance summit, to Warren Lake, to Mitchel Point, to Starvation Ridge trail and back on Mt. Defiance. Took us over 14hrs to complete. I was the first car in the lot at Starvation Creek State Park at 4:15am. Mt. Defiance was a great steep switchback trail with some flat sections in the forrest up high. Lots of downed trees on the trail. There is snow right after the scree field trail junction which we opted out of and crossed the snow instead (we used our microspikes in the snow). 2 to 4ft of snow in places. 2 miles or more of snow. Views were amazing the day we went. Couple good camp spots at Warren Lake. Mitchell point had OK views. Starvation Trail was super hard with very few switchbacks, so you're almost always going straight down. Poison oak on the trail, so make sure you cover up your skin. Lots of beautiful flowers and amazing view points. Visited 12/8/18. Beautiful area to stop at for hiking, sightseeing and a great lunch spot with a couple picnic tables next to Viento falls. Paved trails look very new. Bathrooms were flushing toilets and very clean inside, but only have air dryers, no paper towels for drying your hands. I've seen this place a bunch of other times while visiting the gorge and have always wanted to stop by and check it out. I came here to hike mt defiance trail. The trailheads are easy to find. Mt defiance, starvation ridge and a couple others are on the 14 going west when you walk on the paved path. Starvation ridge from historic trail paved path is closed but you can reach it on mt defiance trail. I did not complete trails because there were creek crossings on both mt defiance and starvation ridge that had no bridges, I was wearing my summer hiking boots (not wanting to get them wet in the water), it was cold out and I was hiking alone. This area is a must stop if you have the time to check it out. I will definitely be back to hike again. Counted 4 waterfalls.

    4/30/19 It's 3:39am and I am the first car in the lot! This is my first time ever hiking or stopping here. There are two handicap parking spots. The parking lot is riddled with large potholes so take care with your vehicle. There are locked vaulted toilets 100 yards up the dog mountain trail. They were pretty smelly when I got there downward in the am. There is a picnic table. You need a Northwest forrest pass, america the beautiful pass or there is a self service pay station here for $5.00. I hiked 11.95 miles 4387ft elevation gain in 8hrs 9 minutes total time, 6hrs 44 mins moving time. Augspurger trail to Augspurger Ridge to Dog Mountain and down more difficult trail on dog, started at 3:59:30 AM. Augspurger is a beautiful trail (way more easy going and gradual than the more difficult trail on Dog Mountain) mostly forrested and well maintained till you get to the dog mountain trail junction. There was a trail junction on Augspurger at .73 miles in for an Old Loggers Trail that looked overgrown. When you hike down to the valley before the powerlines, expect bushwacking and there are lots of obstacles on the trail. A section of the hike is on powerline roads and can be confusing to navigate, if you do not have a map. There are trail markers on the actual augspurger trails and great signs to point you in the right direction minus the powerline roads junction. I stopped on Augspurger Ridge, great views of the gorge here (I liked it better than Dog, because no one else was up there). This was at 5.13 miles in. I continued on for a bit, but the trail was really overgrown beyond the ridge to the summit, so I decided to save that for another day. On the way back headed up Dog Mountain trail via Augsburger. (very nice trail in the forrest till you are at the ridge on the side of Dog mountain.) Small trails on the ridge. The true lookout didn't have much of a view, but the first lookout has beautiful safe seating and spacious. Take care on your steps down from here. The dirt on the trail is slick. If you prefer a gradual descent and are using a map take the long way down dog (the difficult trail). Unbeknowst to me I took the more difficult trail down (there are no signs on top that tell you, which trail is more hard.) The more difficult trail is 2.98 brutally steep miles. The dirt is slippery until you get to the forrest. From the time I started to 10am (10am I was on dog mountain trail via augspurger) I saw nor heard no one on the trail for the first 6hrs of my hike. An almost full parking lot on a Tuesday early afternoon I think most cars were carrying a car load, because I saw and stopped for a ton of people and dogs on the way down. A couple of trail junctions on the more difficult dog trail. Saw very little trash on trail and about half of the dogs I saw were leashed. Very small sporadic wild flower sightings. Lots of trillium in the forrests. If you are coming to dog at this time of year for wildflowers, I think it is still too early. Come here for a great thigh burning workout. A couple of areas on highway 14 for road work one right in front of dog mountain trailhead takes highway down to one lane so expect some waiting. Another at beacon rock area, all on my way out. Saw two police cruisers speed checking highway 14, one at North Bonnevile on the straight part. One closer to Washougal, WA. Also saw no rattlers and had no Ticks on myself at the end of the day. Lots of bugs in the more lush areas where you can tell there is underground water running. I did not see any children on this trail and would not recommend this trail for any child that is not experienced.

    4/9/19 Tuesday hardy ridge loop 7.62 miles. Hiked east and west trails via the equestrian trail. Snow on trail when I went in the forrest high above. Patches of snow on side of trail right before trail turns to foot traffic only. Lots of debris on the west descent of the trail. Summited on a rainy day, so I did not explore the top much. Beautiful hike.

    First one on the trail and in the parking lot at 7:05am on 12/24/18. Hiked 8.9 miles counterclockwise from Herman Creek to Gorton Creek to Nick Eaton trail and back to Herman Creek. ( I had a pre recorded map, very helpful to have.) I tried this trail a couple of years ago before I got into shape and I could not finish it, it was brutal and I was, barely move sore for days after. I've been hiking practically every weekend this year and I finally was able to finish this trail!!! I did this trail counterclockwise, starting with Gorton creek was long (when you get close to the top the snow begins and much of the flat trail on Nick Eaton is covered in snow, it was not icy, so no microspikes needed 12/24/18.), with lots of switchbacks and a creek crossing and on the way down on Nick Eaton trail was brutal, my toes were smashed against the tips of my boots with every step, there are steep switchbacks on the tail end for me of this hike. My feet were so sore when I got to the Herman Creek, Pct trail, otherwise I would have gone down to check out the Herman Creek Bridge (next time!). Finished the hike at 1pm and was hiking for around 6hrs. Most of the trail is really steep so be prepared! When I got back to my car there were 4 other cars in the lot. The parking lot holds 10 cars. You must have a NW forrest pass or pay $5 day use fee. There is a pay box here. The campground when I came here is closed. The bathroom is vaulted toilet and was clean when I got there in the am, but on the smelly side when I left in the PM. I saw 6 people on the trail and all were on my descent, so after 11:30am or so. All of this trail above the power line road was affected by the eagle creek fire.

    The day we went had low level clouds covering the mountain top above about 1800 feet so no views. The date was April 17 which is about two weeks early for what will be the main Balsolm root bloom as buds were just showing. There were plenty of yellow bells, bleeding hearts and red currants among other varieties. The trail had lots of recent rain so was slippery but manageable.

    The day we went was especially windy which is common so dress accordingly. The day was cloudy and there hadn’t been any rain for a few days so the trail was firm with just a few wet spots. There were plenty of wildflowers in full bloom and a wide variety. The views of the gorge were good since the clouds were higher. We added extra distance from the top to go up the steep tail to where it ends at private property. There were other good views and we have seen deer in the past here but none today. This section is lightly used and it still was in good shape with just a couple of small downed trees to step over. We did not do the trails to the west of the parking lot due to the wind.

    A relatively easy hike but worth doing at this time of the year since the falls had a lot of water flowing over it and there was a wide variety of wild flowers in full bloom. The day was cloudy but there were still excellent views of the gorge and valley.

    Beautiful hike and a new Gorge favorite with good views! Good steady elevation gain, proceeds through a beautiful burn. Go counterclockwise to do the steep on the uphill so the downhill isn't as hard on your knees

    This is a great hike for views, waterfalls and a good workout. While the sun was shining most of the way, the peaks were hidden in the clouds but the views of the river were fantastic. The waterfalls were also very nice. Unfortunately the winds were intense and on the ridge on the other side of the summit I had to focus on holding my wind against the wind. We did the loop which was actually 8 miles total. I liked the fact that the descent was not as steep as the ascent. My dog (the "we" in this review) had no difficulty on this hike and he is almost 11 years old. I will do this again when the peaks are out and the wind is less intense.

    Brisk day with 2 inches of snow at the summit.

    The trail from Multnomah Lodge to Larch Mountain was just opened early November 2018 after the fire damage was cleared from a year ago. The fire damage was extensive to the lower half of the trail. The trail was mostly cleared of rock slides and fallen trees with just a short area after the bridge at 2 miles from the lodge. This was mostly small trees and shrubs blocking the trail to pick your way through or go around. It was nice to see all of the falls again but many of the views were altered by the burned trees and fallen debris.

    It’s a calf burner hike and the views are still spectacular even in November. A little muddy at top and some frost with winds. But still special place.

    We did this about a year after the fire at Eagle Creek and had a good look at the damage done as well as how the forest is recovering. The trails showed evidence of maintenance and there was only one small tree on the trail to go over. It was impressive how far up the tree the fire went yet how many of the larger trees survived.

    Pretty terrain through different forest growths and settings of the waterfalls. Please respect and protect the trails and stay on the marked path
