A steep and demanding trail that takes you up above Tillamook forest, providing spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and opening up to nearby Elk Mountain or other trails.
Great workout and amazing views. Beautiful climb up through all the ferns and mossy trees.
Incredible trail but definitely difficult. Three or four sections were pretty rough and the heart rate got up pretty high (170s for me, I had a HRM on). Dense vegetation throughout until you get right to the top so not many views on the way up. But man... all of that is completely worth the top view. Gorgeous views that i could've stayed and just looked at for days. Very lightly trafficked, as we were there on a Monday morning except for one gentleman who told us he was always out there.
If you have the time (~3 hours round trip) and the physical fitness, this trail is a must.
This trail is awesome! So beautiful. The lush green makes this trail outstanding. It is definitely difficult. The trail is very steep, but once you get to the top the view is worth the work.
hard hike but easier than elk mountain trail
hard hike but a alot of wild berries to eat
This is an awesome hike, very strenuous, but at the top the views of the coast range are amazing.
Parking was tight as we hiked Kings on a Sunday.
The family enjoyed the hike (two boys 9 and 11 and wife).
well worth the steepness
