Hiked up to the Misery Ridge Summit via the River Trail with my 11 year old lab. The only trouble spot we came upon was at the switchbacks near the top. The trail had significant ice but was still passable. Just go slow on the ice and in no time, you'll be at the top. Definitely worth the view.

Hiked misery ridge at 4am to watch the sunrise and it was well worth the early morning wake up call. Trails are maintained very well and it appropriate for all skill levels. One of these days I will have to muster up the courage to climb monkey face. Watch out for rattle and bull snakes in the summer!

Terrific sights to see here. Love the ruggedness of it but it's still a well put together trail in my opinion. Go on a sunny day and you'll love the distance you can see as you get to certain spots.

We took our 7 year old daughter, who enjoyed the playful antics of river otters a bit more than the switchbacks up Misery. Yet rewarded by great views, and a close up of a standalone ecosystem that rubberneckers at the base probably don't suspect is up on top. Great views of monkey rock, from beneath, side and above. Watching world-class rock climbers on impossible routes -- bonus!!

Absolutely amazing. Challenging uphill trek but soooooo worth it. The views are spectacular. Plan on spending some time along the way and at the top to just take in the beauty.

Amazing views of sisters mount Jefferson black butte and many more. Able to see numerous mountain climbers and several climbing monkey face. Great great hike!
