Roaring River Wilderness

Roaring River Wilderness Professional Review and Guide

"This hike requires an extended drive to a long, up-and-down forested loop. On the upside, it comprises six lakes, a flower-filled meadow, late-summer huckleberries, views of five Cascades volcanoes, and a beautiful forest that you’ll probably have largely to yourself.

Lovely, shorter options exist, but if you want to do the whole thing, consider backpacking or car-camp at Hideaway Lake, near the trailhead."

The view of the west side of Mt. Hood, especially from the lake, is unparalled. I only rated the hike three stars due to the extremely crowded nature of the area (my family usually goes for a more remote setting when hiking.) There is a store, campgrounds, cabins and boat rentals. It is definitely worth seeing, and is a fun place to go if you have kids. Just be aware that it is not the place for solitude!
