One of the iconic gorge hikes, and closest to Portland, it never fails to impress. Great hike when you have limited time, but try to avoid it on weekends and holidays, as it gets really busy. Unbelievable pay-off at the top. Today, aside from being overcrowded, it was a bit icy early and a lot muddy later. This was our first time back since the fire, and it has retained much of its scenic beauty.
