This was a pretty simple two mile hike to the top. It was a beautiful view. quite dusty and dry. The trail is uphill the whole way but easy to follow. The peak is a parking lot which is always kind of a bummer, but I am glad I hiked rather than drove because there are some awesome, private scenic spots along the way. Not to mention hiking is always more rewarding.

I took the jeep and dogs out from Kuna along the back roads toward Jordan Valley and then connected with the route thru to leslie gulch. The road was washboarded out pretty bad for quite a bit of the trip and it was HOT! When we got to the gulch, it was mostly dried up. I think this year (2013)has been a hard, dry summer. On the way back we turned north and out thru Succor creek. There is some "middle earth" looking terrain up there! So cool to see (but hot and dusty) and we did a little exploring. I won't be doing this trip again in summer... maybe spring time would be better. We had fun but man was the jeep dusty! ha

Beautiful scenic drive. The area below Port Orford and Gold Beach have unusual and beautiful rock formations.

great hike with beautiful views of falls, specially close to Wakheena falls at multiple spots, fairy falls and ecola falls (digression to go near ecola falls is worth it). start from the wakheena side, was less crowded.

Love the falls and views on this hike!

Great easy hike, if you keep going past the first set of falls there is what I call a rock falls. Very beautiful!

Took my almost 3 year old up. Made it darn near all the way up on his own, only carried him 150 yards or so. Beautiful views at the top on a clear day. Saw as far as Mt Adams to north and Mt Mazama/Mt Scott in Crater Lake National Park to South.

Great trail with very well marked intersections. Beautiful views of Multnomah, Fairy, and Wahkeena Falls. Well worth the walk.
