A fair chunk of the trail has been washed out and a few river crossings are required if you don’t start on the far west side. A new trail is forming in the grass which does lead to quite the decent view at the falls!

Nice challenging trail with a little of everything thrown in. From an easy approach to the final shale steeps it had great variety. Little wooden shack and a weather beacon? at the top. 2 hr return but that was maxed out.

Good hiking trail not to populated, took about four hours round trip at a slower pace. Nice view from the very top, don’t stop at the tree line push yourself up to the top.

I've done this trail twice now and love it! It is easy to follow and the view from the old fire watch station is spectacular, I highly recommend this trail.

Well marked trail. Very quiet. Almost harder coming down with that long straight descent. Al around great hike. If any fear of heights might not make it to the top

straight forward trail. It took me 2 hrs to reach the summit and 1hr to hike down.
There are trail markers to follow when you reach intersections which makes it great.
I would consider this a intermediate hike due to some endurance required, but over all an easy hike.
Just expect a straight, uphill slog and you will be good. June 9-2018

Appropriately named, Windy Peak has a bit of everything...ups and downs, rocks, trees, meadows with wildflowers, exposed (relatively wide) ridges. The trail beginning from the parking lot off 532 is relatively easy to follow, though expect to have a number of descents in addition to ascending the ridges. There are a total of 4 "peaks" on your way up. Instead of returning the way we came, we did the loop shown on the AllTrails map which had us bushwacking a good portion of the way down. As another reviewer commented, the lower areas are definitely marshy. Those of us not wearing waterproof boots definitely ended up with wet shoes and socks. Once we reached the road, it was only about a 1-1.5 km back to the parking lot.

Completed this on May 8th 2018. I would give yourself all day (6hrs) to complete this hike. We didn't go all the way, as we were exhausted upon breaking tree line. Trail was very snow-covered and hard to find, added to our time.
Good workout, I would say 80-90% of this hike is an incline.

One of the best hikes I had in 2017. I recommend it to anyone that just started to hike or intermediate level. It was a bit windy up in the top. Perhaps expected to bit a chilly during mid December. I found unfinished bottle of Rum and we thought it was a pee..lol.

Fairly steep from the parking area for the first mile or so, but beautiful views to the east.

I just did the hike from the turnaround spot up to the top of Windy Peak July 23, 2017. Only suitable if very dry season. We still got wet walking through the low lying areas around the 5 mile mark on the map and then again around the 4.5 mile mark. Bush wacking up the north ridge until we cleared the trees. Don't ask me why the trail is marked as such, totally unsuitable. Looking to the east you can see the triail from "The Hump" and it looks well marked and used.
If I could edit the track shown I would.
