Easy hike, close to Portland An easy hike from the parking lot to the best view - about 1/2 mile. The view looks over Panther lake and towards Raymond. Could be slippery in the winter as the viewing ledge has a slope to it. I found this a disappointing hike as there is no view from the summit which is an additional 1/2 mile from the best view. This is a good hike for small children as it is short and there is a good view within a 1/2 mile from the parking lot. As you can see from the map there is one spot where it is a little steep. There is a nicely placed Geocache on this hike which you can read about at: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8818a032-7ed1-4823-81f8-9c121fa91a5a

Not too shabby. Hiked it for the first time today with my 18 month old in a hiking pack - cracked one heck of a sweat on the way up. Definitely some steep sections; just be careful with footing. Half way up is the best view.

*Glad I came across this hiking app... makes finding new gems, like this one, so much easier.

Nice trail with some steeper sections. Great view of the lakes to the east. The end of the trail is a little disappointing since you already hiked past the best views.

This is a great hike if you need a little post/pre work exercise. It's just enough to get your heart rate going if you keep a good pace but short enough to do as a quick workout. The views are nice as well.

Great trail to hike. May not be best suited for young kids, I took my 4 year old up it, but I had to carry her down the steep part of the trail because she kept slipping. Really only one good view at the top, but it is pleasant.

One of my favorites because you can bring beginners along with you and be up and down within an hour but you'll end up staying for two!

Good little hike to do with the kids. Pretty woods and a great view at the outlook, with a rock outcropping to stop and have a snack with the kiddos on.
