Started up in relatively foggy weather, which eventually turned into mist, and then a light rain. Made it to the rock pile as thunder rolled in, but no lightening, and rain was still light. Kept going, and as I made final approach, ridge and summit cleared. Beautiful views of Mt. Hood all to myself.

I chose this as one of my few hikes on my first trip to the Pacific Northwest based on the views of Mt. Hood. Just my luck, I made it up to Mirror Lake and couldn't see more than 100 feet due to dense fog/clouds. I continued on a bit, but decided there wasn't much point as the visibility never improved and turned back.

It's a nice trail with an eerie feeling at first, as the sounds of highway fade away and a damp, mossy, thick forest surrounds you. I can only imagine how great the views would be with nice weather!

This trail gets so much year-round use that you can hike to the top on a well-packed trail without needing snowshoes even in January (as long as it's been about two days since a big snowfall). Very scenic in the winter.

Heh, You can also ride the ski lift up from ski bowl for some access the slackcountry, and skin all the way to all three summits.

This is a good alternative if you are skiing at Skibowl, and want to get away from the crowds... I reccomend AT/ Splitboard/Tele with skins, because there will be some uphill travel from the highest point where the lift drops off... Unless you like snowshoes....

Got to first summit (Tom?) but could not coax my smoker co-worker any further. Still, a great view and fun hike.

An easy winter hike or a short burn up the snow slopes. Watch out for falling humans from above. My friend wanted to stay on the summit an stare at Hood, so he dug a wind break pit with chairs in about 10 minutes. We stayed warm for an hour while party after party stayed for less than 5 minutes on the summit.

After taking several weeks off from hiking this was a great short hike to get back onto the trails. We started around 9:30, hit the lake before 10:00 where we downed a fruit leather and continued on to make the summit by 11:15. The weather was perfectly in the mid 60's with very few clouds in the sky, highly conducive to napping and a slow lunch. It was an easy 1 hour decent past the hoards of people headed to the lake.

Having done this climb on snowshoes in January of 2006, it was fun have the contrasting summer experience.

After driving past this trail so many times on the way to go skiing, I was really suprised how beautiful the snow covered lake was! Deep snow on the way to the top, and quite a windy day -would like to go back in the summer to see the different views!

The trail to Mirror Lake was packed enough snow shoes were not needed. We put our shoes on at the lake, cut through the forest in about 6-8 inches of new snow, and climbed the north ridge. The conditions were windy & snowy. We forgot our masks & goggles so we were blind till we got to the mini forest just below the summit. The forest provided good shelter from the wind. The new snow was 20" deep and heavy. The summit was very windy.

My wife and I snowshoed to the summit via the standard route and had no problems, loved the view and hoped to come back soon. We haven't gone back yet but that's because they don't make snowshoes that will fit our infant.



I did go back with some friends and climbed the left (East) side (facing the mountain) of the bowl straight up from the lake. This was a better, more interesting route but seemed unsafe from an avalanche point of view.

Got a late start but it ended up being perfect timing. Started hiking about 12pm and it only rained for the first 5 minutes then it stopped and was partly cloudy with sunbreaks until I got back to the car when it started pouring! I expected more snow but there was only a few patches towards the summit. I didn't see another hiker the whole way which was great, and the view from the top looking across the valley at Mt. Hood is impressive. It was a quick and rewarding hike.

Clarence, Joshua, and Rachel Villwock hiked to the top of Tom Dick and Harry Mountain. It was a beautiful, sunny, and nearly windless day. The Chipmunks were very friendly. It was a nice hike.

SoupRoute Climbed: Mirror Lake Trail up/down through the bowl Date Climbed: April 9, 2005  Sucess!

Rain and snow berated us as we geared up at the truck, but it subsided before we laid eyes on Mirror Lake. We donned snowshoes just before the switchback at the cairn and hit the summit in three hours.



We dropped off the ridge and hit the bowl, then plowed through the woods, roughly following a small creek. Then, we met up with the trail around the lake and hit the truck, an hour and 45 minutes from the top.



The weather was okay; turning from spittin' snow and rain to dense clouds, to a raised cloud-line of about 7000 feet with sun breaks.

Was expecting lots of falling snow.......Instead, I was welcomed with partly cloudy skies. The wind kicked up with some strong gusts and blasting ice but for the most part a nice day. I packed my snowshoes up to the lake using the main trail. A solo X-country skier was coming down the trail as I was headed up. I put my snowshoes on at the lake and scrambled through the forest in 6" to 8" of fresh powder. By the time I got to the boulders the fresh stuff was a bit deeper. I climbed the ridge to the summit. I was the first of a few groups that summited today. Click PHOTOS to see a few of todays pics.

Karl Helser

This is a great climb.......on a clear Winter day.......with tons of snow.........and just a few others......(my opinion only??) I prefer to ascend the Northeastern face to the ridge. Walk the ridge to the backside of Ski-Bowl. Then desend to the bowl, through the forest, around the lake, then head straight for the rig (as the crow flies)
