pj_hammerQuick and Easy Offseason Hiking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2014


Little bit of ice near the top on the northern face, but definitely doable in the winter. A lot less crowded, too.

Nice hike - not as crowded back in the day when I first did it but way more so now!

Great hike in the gorge. Rainy down below but the clouds broke at the top. To avoid crowds go on a nice day in winter. Great sunset: http://www.summitpost.org/angel-s-rest/777719

Hiked up from Multnomah and hit Devil's Rest and Angel's Rest. TONS of people up at Angel's Rest, but it felt like summer!

The views are wonderful, but on weekends the crowds are hellish. The trail is like a pedestrian version of nearby Interstate 84. Try to plan your visit for a weekday.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2011


Perfect weather, but the trail was packed! Up on Angel's Rest there were about 40 to 50 people just sitting around and enjoying the sun + excellent cloudless views. Really easy trail, but did see one older man suffer slight heatstroke on the trail.

Went up with a friend that has medical problems. Many people of many different abilities can do this. The view is great for people like me that live in a desert.

A good trail to train intervals but watch out for the beached whales. They line the sides of the trail during popular times.

hiway99wFirst hike of 2009  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 31, 2009


I knew that this was a popular trail but was surprised at how crowded it was on a winter weekend (especially considering the weather wasn't exactly spectacular). I can only imagine how it must be in the summer. The sun broke from the clouds while we were on top and there was no wind to speak of. A pretty good day for a hike.

I've climbed this many times over the years. It's one of my favorites. I've taken both of my daughters also with me. My favorite view west towards Portland with that great oak tree framing the shot.

First hike with the dog. She loved it.

BCJConvenient  Sucess!


This is a great weekday afternoon hike because of its proximity to Portland. Views from the top are great.

Great view of the gorge.

awilsondcPopular, but for a good reason  Sucess!


Aside from Multnomah Falls, this one of the busiest trail in the Gorge. Perfect for an hour or two of exercise, and good views along the way and from the summit. I've probably hiked this trail about thirty times for that very reason. It's a classic.

YEMQuick  Sucess!


Plenty of bang for the buck. Waterfalls, cliff views of the gorge and plenty of wind. Hike this in the winter on a weekday if you want solitude.

OJ LoennekerFun but crowded  Sucess!

This trail can get SUPER crowded on a nice day. It's much more fun on a cruddy or rainy day/ Less people. Even more fun with snow. From the top there are several connecting trails that can take you all the way to Larch Mountain, and back into Devils rest and the old Logging town of Palmer. I have never needed snowshoes, but I have seen people use them higher up near Devils rest. This one gets alot of use from me.
