WOLFrisingSick summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2016


Seriously, I was really sick when I climbed this one. I had a bad reaction to what i had for lunch, and climbed it on an 80 plus degree day. It is a short one though, so I was determined. Maddie let me take my time, and I enjoyed the shade and waterfall areas. I want to go back and run it soon!

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.

TyC70 and Slightly Cloudy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


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!

LeviFinally Feeling Like Summer!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2010


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.

LunadogRainy Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2009


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.

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

BCJGood conditioning hike  Sucess!


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.

Date Climbed: Mar 22, 2008


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


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.

YEMHam Mt. Trail  Sucess!


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.
