Fantastic view at the top!! Definitely a workout- but the views are amazing. It's kind of a scramble getting up and down the last 50 ft or so- it's all rock. As of 11/30 there is no snow

such a rewarding hike. It's a tough, steep in that made us wonder if we were cut out for it but once you get to the switchbacks you're so close! The air changes, the wind finds you and your view starts to expand. Mt. Jefferson was hiding behind clouds but the view was amazing nonetheless. The trip out was the easiest stroll compared to the in. Have fun!

Great 2.5 mile hike each way! We had 2 dogs (one 4 month old pup) with us so it took us a little longer than if we had left them at home, but they did great and had no problem getting up and back down. The few is definitely worth it! I'd say be prepared for a pretty steady upward trek though :)

Very nice hike. All up in but not that bad. Very nice view at top. Trail was marked good at trail head and on the trip. Should be on the list of do's.

Easy, maintained trail. No skills needed. Nice views and soaring osprey at the top. Lots of wildflowers along the way.

Steep as a mother f-er great hike though of you like a challenge. View is unbeatable but they need to clear some of the trees that have grown up over the years. Last 30 feet is difficult to get to top. Think mountain goat status.

Completely uphill, so bring lots of water and snacks for the top. The view at the top is breathtaking!

All up hill on the way in, but not too hard of a trek. Take your time on the way up and enjoy the sights. The view on top is great.

A very decent trail that is manageable to climb even during winter months. Very good for those people with a bad sense of direction since the trail is a one way and basically strait to the top. Very pretty vegetation especially with the frost and snow.

Once you get to the top you'll be blown away by the view of Mount Jefferson, lush Oregon landscape and rolling hills. Definitely recommend, especially for some who may be beginners to hiking and want a bit of a challenge.

Very nicely maintained trail. 2.5 miles of uphill, but it felt pretty gradual. Watch for yummy huckleberries, ripe in August, for a snack along the way. The final ascent to the top where there is a foundation from an abandoned look out tower was a bit challenging for me but my husband, son, and dog went right up. (Then the dog almost went over the edge to a certain death.) Beautiful views of Detroit lake. There is also a view of Mt. Jefferson that was obscured by clouds for us when we were there. Some guidebooks call this a family friendly hike, which I would agree with except there are pretty steep drop offs on the way up and the very top has dangerous drop-offs. I would be nervous with small or unruly children on this hike. Overall, a fantastic hike. 2.5 miles up then 2.5 miles back down.

Parking is right off 10, a couple miles after the Santiam Flats campground turn. Starts out smooth, gets maybe 30% incline on a couple of stretches. From the top you can see The Detroit Reservoir, parts of the city of Detroit, and some houses in Idanha. The top is a former lookout tower location, so there is a small flat area. 15 by 15 feet, no more, but it's enough for maybe 10 people to sit comfortably and get a snack.
There was some ice on the trail, but with trekking poles it was no problem.
