    This trail is great in the summer but can get extremely windy in the fall/winter (as many Gorge trails do) so bundle up. The views are incredible, well worth the climb. Even though it's a popular hike and can get busy, it's still one of my favorites.

    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.

    Crowded but easy and fun, this trail offers a spectacular view (and a nice breeze) at the top. A good resting point for lunch. I've heard this would be a good sunset trail, but haven't tried it yet.

    Very good conditions with the nice weather we have been having in Feb. 2008. I bit muddy near the switch-backs as you approach the boulder field. My 7-year old son had no problem navigating the trip.

    Loved, loved this hike. It is beautiful and gives your buns a run for their money, too.

    Nice mid level day hike. Seems very popular with a lot of weekend traffic but not to crowded on the trail. Lots of dogs. The trail is a good steady climb with some rock scrambling at the top and quite a few patches of poison oak along the trail from bottom to top.

    Fantastic vistas that are worth all of the thigh burning work. A fantastic trail that sends you home knowing that your body will ache tomorrow. Steep inclines with rock scrambling lead up to a sweeping view of the Gorge. Bring a sled to go down, you'll slid. Great hike!!!
