The first 'trail' was very steep. It looked more like a road. The second trail, the Madrone trail, was close though. There is a lot of poison oak! The trails were clear of it though. We stopped at the road and turned back. We didn't know we had to follow the road to continue to the rest of the trail. I will try again another dy!

Spencer Butte Trail

Beautiful forested uphill trail until you break the treeline, at least during summer. After that, it is rough rock scrambling to the top...and hot/dusty. Stay to the right to stay on the trail, but watch your footing. This trail is not suitable for small children, unless you turn back once it gets rocky. Note: the GPS coordinates on the AllTrails map stops short of the actual park entrance. Keep going and its up on the left with a clearly-marked sign.

Golden and Silver Falls

I hiked in from the last road closure sign (parked at the turnaround), and this park is still very much accessible (other people drove, though I wouldn't risk it - one of the pictures shows where the right side of the road is washed out when driving in). It is about 1.5 miles from the concrete barriers to the trail heads and each one to the lower falls is a short jaunt. I didn't hit the upper falls trail (maybe next time), but even during this severe drought, both falls were flowing. It is a very pretty area and the trails are not overgrown. There is also a bathroom at the trail head. The directions on the AllTrails app sent me to the right at the split, which only goes to private property (clearly marked no trespassing), so stay to the left where you see the signs for golden and silver falls.

Angels Rest in the Columbia River Gorge

Hiked up this as a part of a longer Angel's /to/ Devil's circuit though the "fun" is all in the first stop, Devil's landing is pretty much just a tease (fair for the name). Hitting the trail before 8, there was plenty of parking and very few people on the path though it got considerably crowded for my return. The trail is almost entirely shaded keeping things nice and cool up until the last 1/2 mile or so. Certainly takes you up though at a truly moderate pace (about half the incline of say Dog / Kings Mountain). At the top be sure to scramble up to reach the far left vista point, head out to the memorial bench and take in the amazing view before heading down. If you're heading up to Devil's rest for a longer workout (nice trail but again, no view), head back to the fork, stay right and wander on up a couple more miles then back the way you came. No facilities on the trail or trailhead.

Crater Lake, South Entrance

Beautiful! Also be sure to seek out the Pinnacles.

Try to avoid days when there are bike events. I'm not sure how often they're held at Crater Lake, but there is no shoulder and it's slightly stressful trying to drive around the cyclists because there are blind curves. Nothing against them, but when there are several cyclists and several tourists in cars, it was difficult to drive.

Tumalo Falls

Super easy to get to the top of the falls. Half way up is the trail to take to hike behind the falls, which is easy but there are a couple areas where there's loose rock. I saw one man slide holding his daughter, which is something I don't recommend. It's a one person-wide trail with a drop off. It's safe but significantly less safe when carrying a moving child. Such beautiful falls!!!
