love this hike it is an intense work out. if you have asthma(like me)a big warning bring your inhaler. it's an amazing hike but it is very hard on the lungs. the view at the top is extremely worth it
Very nice view for such a short hike! We went in the late fall and it was already nice and blustery cold at the top. There are some fun mountain roads in the area if you like to jeep. I would say the hike is appropriately ranked as moderate- but it can be a bit more difficult in the rain. It was a fun scramble up to the top...we'll probably go again but with better weather..
Achy legs and slippery when wet.
Super reward at the top. Well kept trail.
Awesome views from the lookout
Great incline and beautiful surprise at the lookout.
I went on 8-16-16. You must pick a day where it is going to be sunny or it's not worth the long drive. The directions of WA trails website make it easy to find. One tip.,, when you get ready to turn on 84 country road it is marked with an orange snow pole. The road comes right after you see the road with a closed gate. Another tip... Track your mileage as you turn on the last roads. What is listed on the WA site is completely correct, which helped make sure you didn't miss turn off. All the posts are correct to say that the last 9 miles to the trailhead are tough and slow due to potholes. The trail was well marked and easy to navigate. The view makes it worth it. If I made time I would have done Cora Lake. It's along the same road 84, just different turn off. Go early on nice days.
A really good hike trail that is easy to navigate. It will push you if you are not accustomed to hiking on a regular basis.
Unfortunately due to weather conditions, we could not get a glimpse of the awesome sights we read about. Quite spooky looking over the edge. However, the lookout building is neat to look at.
Short hike that is pretty easy, good for families. Road to trailhead is a little rough.
