This mountain has one of the best views in central Oregon that easily accessible. To the north is broken top mountain with the high alpine scenery. To the southwest is mount bachelor. There is minimal blowdown each year and all the snow is gone by July.

Nice hike - steady elevation gain all the way to the top. Views are spectacular on a sunny day.

I replaced the trailhead sign with a new one that has the corrected mileage of (2 miles on it). This year the trail had the most trees down on it since i started doing the maintenance in June 2007. Enjoy all. Chuck

Great hike. Simply great. Challenging but my 8years old daughter made it:)It was impossible to see where the actual trail is, everything was covered by snow. So we went straight up.Amazing view!

Snowshoed this in mid-November. Took just over an hour to get to the top and was really steep. Were a lot of people hiking this in boots but snowshoes will definitely make it easier. Some people skinning up as well and skiing down the backside. Beautiful views the whole way up and very rewarding at the top.

Pretty straightforward hike. Starts in beautiful pine forest, gradually turning into meadows until you get to the top. Fantastic views!

I put "demanding" for the difficulty since you are hiking pretty much straight up for 1.5 miles. Not difficult for all, but definitely for some. A good trail to use trekking poles if you have them.

I've been up to the top twice. Once snowshoeing, and another time the snow was so packed down that we walked all the way to the top with normal snowboots. This is one of my favorite places! It has a moderate incline, but plenty doable if you take your time and go at your own pace, plus it's very rewarding when you get to the top. Beautiful views of Bend, with Redmond in the background, it's amazing with all the city lights at night. Nothing beats being on the top of a snowy mountain under the stars with hot coco and some friends! There's a little shelter at the top also, with a hot wood stove inside to get warm, and you can even cook up something hot to eat if you bring it up with you.
