Great view at the top, easy to moderate hiking. Trail head difficult to find, gps was not accurate for me.

It was a hard trail to find. It is right across the street from Goodman Creek trail. There are no postings or signs to indicate the difference. It was a beautiful hike throughout. It is all uphill and steep, but the view is breathtaking. I can't wait to go again!

The directions lead your car to an access road between trailheads. I would recommend either starting at Goodman creek trailhead off highway or drive a bit further up access road to a parking lot clearing at trail head.

It was ok. As mentioned in previous posts the trail should be marked a little better, I came to a fork in the trail on the Goodman portion,I took the left but it should have been the right. I still did a good 12 miler but I never got to the Eagle Rest portion. Oh well that's for another day!

What a great springtime hike! Yellow lilies are just starting to poke up along some of the marshy sections of this well-maintained trail. There is a 3 walled shelter just past the marsh to stop and listen to the frogs. Once you hit a road and the upper trailhead you're getting close to a spectacular view at the top.
Combine this trail with Goodman Creek for a great out and back day hike by parking at the Hardesty Mountain trailhead off of 58. It took me 5 1/2 hours to complete that combo.

A must in the Willamette National Forest! Great overlook, beautiful forest trails. Be warned, as of 1/21/2016, there is both a major downed-tree and also a rockslide blocking Goodman Creek Road when you drive SW from Willamette Hwy. These two impasses means take a different access road, NF-509 to NF-5833.

Beautiful overlook! We hiked after a light dusting of snow. Well worth the few miles up.

Awesome hike with amazing views at the top. There were some mountain bikers so be careful when on the hike.

The worst part about the hike is that the road to get out there is not well maintained with tons of deep potholes.

Surprisingly good view of the valley at the end. Relatively steady and easy grade until the last half mile or so.

Took 2 hours round trip. That includes 20 minute stop to enjoy the view at the top.

Light to moderate incline, varied vegetation into July, some roots and dips in path.

At the 3.2 mile mark, park on your right and take the trail uphill in front of your car. There is a three walled historical shelter about half way up. Once you cross the road near the end, keep going up and you will leave the wet vegetation behind and immerse yourself in madrone, manzanita and more douglas fir all the way to the top. Well worth the hike.

There was not water in any of the streams, so don't forget to pack some for the dogs if it is summer or fall.
