From Burn Lake Trail #772, the Devil's Tie Trail climbs gradually, passing a clear stream until Cast Meadow and the Zigzag Mountain Trail #775 are reached. Huckleberries and a variety of fragile wildflowers are found along segments of the trail.
An interesting 5.5 mile loop can be made by hiking Burnt Lake Trail to its junction with the Devil's Tie Trail. Then follow Devil's Tie northwest to its intersection with the Zigzag Mountain Trail #775. Turn right, and follow the trail to its junction with the Burnt Lake Trail. This is one of the most outstanding loops in the Mount Hood Wilderness as it combines magnificent 360 views found on top of East Zigzag with a wide variety of fragile wildflowers and huckleberries.
Frequently, especially during the peak of huckleberry season, evidence of bear and other wildlife can be found along the trial.
