Nice hike with beautiful water falls along the way. Used Beacon Rock as a warm up. Strong east winds today.

Other than the switchback section, this is a fairly mellow hike and well worth the effort for the views. Plus, you pass Rodney and Hardy Falls en route, which is a nice bonus.

Very busy day on Hamilton. Based on the climbers heading up and down while we were summiting I would say 100+ people or so hit the summit today. While we were on the summit for 20 minutes we encountered about 40 people who came and left. Great hike!

Hiked with a friend and made it up in about 2 hours. After all the cloud and rain the sun was a welcomed sight! Great views from the top. Once finished, we decided to hit up Beacon Rock as well.

We did the loop and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite huffing and puffing on the way up.

It never stops raining in the gorge. That's what is so cool about the place.

Hiked up with my Dad. He made me wear my new backpack but it didn't bug me much. Some of the steps in the cliffy section are kinda high for me but I got up with no real problem. We came down the Hardy Trail way. I kicked my Dad's ass on this trail. I also thought the waterfalls were cool. I got the car seats really muddy too on the way back. That must have been why my Dad didn't let me have any of his McDonald's hamburgers on the way back. I got stupid kibble.

Are there any days that don't rain in the Gorge?

Did it again 3/6/11. Gloomy down below, sunny up top. I laid in the snow and lounged.

This is a good hike for the spring or on a morning when you can't get further from town.

Wet, muddy, rainy, windy and cold. Just how I like it! Plus that keeps the crowds away. Saw less than six people all day, and no one on the south side.

Lots of mud on the trail, a bit popular today! A great time with snow at the top, only saw one person on the Hardy Creek side of the loop. First summit for my new pup, loved it! :)

SubalpineSamSnow and more snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2008

SubalpineSam

Gorgeous day today with lots of sun and nice scenic clouds. It even got up to nearly 50 degrees. Not bad for February! Above the first set of cliffs, it got pretty snowy. At the top there was anywhere from 2 to 4 feet of snow, depending on the angle and exposure. I managed to posthole up to my crotch. Swell. Went down the way I came up ("more difficult"), since it looked the the snow got a lot deeper heading north, and I was alone.
Note: Absolutely take the Little Beacon Rock trail. The little view through the trees to Beacon Rock and across the river are perfect.

Climbed in Feb. with the wind hitting us hard at the summit. It was so strong we couldn't stand without bending at the knees. A great short day hike with cliffs, views and waterfalls. Everything the doctor ordered.

Went with 2 friends, made it up in 1.5 hrs. Once on the trail, the there were thick clouds above but many cleared as we approached the summit. (we did suffer a minor moment of defeat when we drove through a small section of rain right before reaching the trail head) Good views from the summit looking east up the gorge. We descended following the loop, heading north from the summit. We stopped at the waterfall on the way down to take some pictures, the rocks there made for a fun scrambling problem too.

A great quick walk through the mud and rain to the top to look out at the fog, around the backside and down the loop. A beautiful day back at the parking lot -ran across the street and up to the top of Beacon Rock to enjoy the sun!

The morning felt like a hot summer day, and the afternoon a cool, wet, spring day. There were plenty of people on the summit, despite the Easter holiday, but we found a perfect lunch perch 100 meters north on the ridge trail.

I've climbed Hamilton numerous times, the first time when a was a kid, the most recent in July of 2005 as a training hike. Still one of my favorite places in the gorge, lots of memories.

Very fun hike, beautiful day, mid 40's and almost no wind. Up in just over 2 hours, down in an hour. Next time i'll do the loop. Took both an altimeter and a GPS reading on the summit, altimeter was 2489, GPS 2450. Did not seem like 4 miles to me, but what do I know?
