Beautiful hike but only real view once at the lookout was Table Rock.. however the trek over to Rooster Rock so worth it.. amazing 360° panoramic view. Definitely doing Rooster Rock again on a clearer day.

A wonderful trail in the middle of nowhere. If you want a decent chance at seeing bears and/or cougars, it's here. The Molalla wilderness is a terrific and underused area. Anyway, it's a great trail starting out at the Rooster Rock trailhead that turns into a longer ridge hike to one of the few remaining stone cupulas left in the state. It's a terrific jumping-off point for hitting Rooster Rock or Table Rock. Just a great hike in a underused area. Bring lunch, or a sleeping bag and friends and stay in the lookout. There's a spring nearby for water.
