Great hike, gorgeous view at the top. There really was an angel at rest near the summit. She shared some water with me and several other passerby's, which I greatly appreciated cause I forgot mine.

Great! But would be better with fewer people and less noise from the interstate.

This is a steady climb at the beginning after the obstructed view of the water fall you will follow the creek then a switch back trail with cliff on the side. Crowded at times. Beautiful views, worth it can't wait to do again

Classic beauty the gorge has to offer! Try to get there early, parking can be a bit of a headache but well worth it at the top!

Very pretty, not too far from Portland. Very accessible and scenic trail. Slightly crowded on sunny days. CAUTION: Be careful parking on the side of the road. Parking lot was full when I went there so I had to park along the side of the road and I got an $80 ticket! I guess my tires were slightly past the white line! Which sucks.. But other then that i have enjoyed one of Oregon's most famous trails a lot. Next destination is Devils Rest :)
