Beautiful hike! Some of the absolute best views of this area! I loved this hike! I would definitely do it again!
This is a short but moderate hike up to two old fire lookout stations on top of Illahee rock. The hike is beautiful with several points along the trail with outstanding views, but nothing compared to the view at the top. There is a 500 foot elevation gain, not the 184 feet stated in the trail description.
