Clackamas River Trail

Loved being along the river the entire hike, 11 year old son and 4 month old puppy did great! We went to pup falls and returned back to car. Hike was primarily in the shade but the day was gorgeous. Moderate hike with great scenery, a lot of places to hang by the river or in the woods to take breaks.

Hardesty Trail

I have the same observations as other hikers/reviewers.
1. The track on the trail page is for the Goodman Creek (and back on forest road) trail, NOT the trail to the summit.
2. The round trip to the top of Hardesty Mtn is a bit shy of 11 miles (not the 8.8 miles mentioned)
3. The trail (to the summit) offers very little in matter of "scenic views" (unless we are talking of forested area scenery... lots of that).


Olallie Butte

This is a fairly grueling hike in the snow. I included a link that might help explain better than I can. We actually parked at Olallie Lake and snowshoed along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) to the Olallie Butte trail (which adds a couple more miles to the trip). The trail is mostly up the NW side of the Butte so you are able to see Mt. Hood very well. And on a clear day you can see Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams as well! It's not until you clear the trees at about 6500' that you can see Mt. Jefferson. We didn't actually make it up to the top because we lost the trail due to the enormous amounts of snow! Everything about this hike is worth it!


Clackamas River

This trail is well maintained despite it being in an old growth forest. Not muddy despite February time of year. Quite a few people on it. Beautiful. My one criticism is that it follows the road at least for the first part (didn't do the whole trail), and you could hear road noise. River was far below, but you could hear it rushing in several places.


McDowell Creek Falls Trail

This was our first hike. Took our 2 year old and 8 year old. It was a little challenge at times with my daughter and the stairs, but we had a blast. The falls were beautiful! It took us 1:50 but that was with a toddler. So fun, can't wait to do it again!
