Great views of Medford and surrounding area. Amazing wildflowers- Indian Paintbrush, Buttercup, Cats Ears and much more. Weather was perfect today, in the low 70’s!

Great cardio workout. Often windy on top but it is refreshing on a hot day. One of my favorites in the gorge.

BEAUTIFUL waterfall!

Beautiful. Trail was well maintained and easy to follow. AMAZING views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Great trail with lots of spectacular views. There are some leg busting sections but well worth it. Keep an eye out for mountain bikers.

very stunning in the snow covered trees. hike is longer as you need hike to the trail head, 1.7m one way.

The trail is sometimes ambiguous and has some rock slides covering some trail portions. The view is good however. The trail is moderately steep and moderately muddy.

Mitchell Point is officially open as of Sunday, April 1st, 2018.

Also there are a ton of bugs at the summit.

Finally got to go back on Monday 4/9/18 and it was gorgeous, the trail is in prime condition! No closed sign on freeway exit, bathrooms are open and plenty of people enjoying this beautiful trail!

I've hiked this several times but yesterday was by far the most beautiful time of year to go! I also went from 5:00-7:00.

Total distance was almost 10 miles on the dot. Great views of snowy mountains and Applegate Lake. Uphill all the way up, so I would suggest doing this in cooler weather. Rewarding view at the top.

Definitely worth the work for a short trip. Ice in quite a few spots still but easy to manage with just boots. Can't wait to try this one again after the snow and be able to get behind the falls.

First timer and loved it!
Thanks to my buddy who knows this place like the back of hands. I hope to be back to enjoy the spring full bloom.

4/1/18: Weather conditions were windy and the rain held off for most of the afternoon so the ground was dry. This is good because this hike is completely ‘open’. You can either do the switchback trail or go directly up to avoid the switchbacks (which is what my partner and I did) and the intensity rating I would give for that is “hard” since it’s straight up. Trail is a mix of rocks, dirt, and grass. When you think you’ve reached the “top”... don’t be fooled, you’ll have a few more steps to go. There weren’t many mountain bikers today, but be cautious to share the trail with them because they come down fast and some don’t forewarn you with a shout. When you finally reach the top, there’s not much else going on though which was a bit disappointing.

Gorgeous view at the summit! Didn’t expect the foot of snow most of the way, but still worth the trek!

We weren’t expecting 2 feet of snow but the glad we have 4wheel drive some other unlucky soul got stuck in the snow before he could reach the crossroads. Was a great hike, very peaceful.

There were gorgeous views of the Gorge on this trail. Super windy when we were there. Beautiful wild flowers everywhere. Followed this with a walk up old scenic hiway trail which was also very scenic and easy.

Beautiful spring day for a family hike with folks from Oregon, Oklahoma and New Hampshire. Grew up in the area but it took 50 years to complete this hike. Well worth the effort!

Great hike. Trail was very easy to follow and was challenging but not too tough. It's a fairly gradual climb and not just a whole bunch of switchbacks. There are a few good views on the way up and the panoramic view from the top is definitely worth it. Took about 4.5 hours total from start to finish including some time at the top for lunch. Minimal snow on the trail (3/26/18), no problem with regular hiking shoes. The gps pin on the app is spot on with parking right by the trailhead. This was probably my favorite hike in Oregon so far. We didn't see any wildlife during our hike but did hear some deep growling fairly close to us that I assume was a bear near the top. Just something to keep in mind.

Hiked on March 24th. So many long switch backs! But it was a nice casual hike, not steep until the last 1/4 mile where you get to the top of the cliff trail. Make sure you have a map-not many signs actually say the name of trails on the way up. Flowers just starting to come up!

Snow covered forest trail following the water and an amazing falls at the end. Beautiful!

Loved the view at sunset!

Such a beautiful hike. Amazing views the whole entire way! Lots of traffic - hikers and mtn bikers. Got lucky with sunshine the whole time. Loved it! Can’t wait to see all the wildflowers this summer

It’s a nice 30 mins walk on a flat terrain with a great view of the river

great family hike....steep going up... easy down I really enjoy this hike whenever I'm in southern Oregon

Beautiful late winter/early spring hike. Sun was shining and because the bulk of this hike is exposed, I was able to hike shirtless to attempt to tan. The panoramic views of the Gorge and Mt Hood keep you motivated as you climb to the top; I imagine once the wildflowers bloom those will also be a great motivator. I particularly enjoyed being on the section just before the forest (the highest point).

The trail wasn’t crowded but we also went mid-week and started before 10am. I loved coming down little Moab and watching the mountain bikers, they’re crazy!!!

Amazing views!! The wild flowers were still working on coming up so I’m sure in a few weeks it’ll be even better when they’re in full bloom! No shade until the top so bring the sun screen! Wouldn’t rate it as a hard though, moderate trail for sure.

Super pretty hike. The entire trail was covered in hard packed snow and some ice. Boots chains and poles for the win!

Went this weekend. It was amazing. 3/17/18 it was snowy still, slippery in some places. Be careful, but otherwise wonderful!

This was a breathtaking hike and views. Loved it all. Long but not too difficult.
