my favorite of all the trails to the fire tower. Best views especially after the leaves fall. Well marked and reasonably dry 2 days after heavy rains

Super easy hike. Did this with my daughter and puppy. Great views and easily done in an afternoon.

This was a great fall hike. I took the yellow trail up and wasn’t sure which trail I’d take down. The yellow trail is VERY hard to follow in quite a few places. This seemed to be the consensus as I said hello to other hikers as well. It’s gorgeous in the woods on this trail, so if you take your time and pay attention I would still recommend it. Because of this, I took the blue trail down, and was glad I did because this offered some variety and was a fun challenging way back down. Overall would highly recommend it. Beautiful, challenging, and great way to spend the day.

Ring trail still in good shape late October; rocks, roots, & mud appear to be the reason for the moderate rating. 2 mile trail at an easy pace, just over an hour.

Great trails and very clean! ☆☆☆☆☆

Went up blue trail and down the yellow. As others have said yellow is a little harder to follow especially in October with the leaves down HOWEVER I would 100% recommend coming down yellow for the views of snow capped white mountains.

WE FOUND A FITBIT AT THE TRAILHEAD on Saturday October 20th. It was right around 1pm when we began. If this is yours, please email me at marlanaujoks@gmail.com and I will mail it back to you.
The blue trail was well marked, steep at times, and overall a 5 star hike up, with outstanding views on the way up and at the summit. There is not a sign when you reach the summit, but it will be pretty obvious. The yellow trail, though lovely, was terrifying to head back down on due to the yellow paint marks being inconsistent in brightness and not being marked in areas where it should have been to keep folks from straying off the path. I would recommend giving yourself plenty of time to go down this train in case you get lost. I would give this particular trail 5 stars if it were clearly marked, and in a color other than yellow, so I'd give it 3 stars at this point. I hope it is changed in the future.

A very satisfying hike. Not to challenging, but is a steady uphill hike. At the summit you’ll find lots of cool information like guides about the wildlife and trees/plants. Nice views too.

The views make it worthwhile.

Really easy hike. Takes about 7 minutes to the top if you go the direct route. Kids, families and dogs enjoy the views from the big granite ledge on top. Fall is a great time of year to view foliage.

Loved this place! And so did my dog! It connects up with other trails. Definitely wear some good water-resistant foot gear!

Beautiful hike. Took the blue trail up and the yellow back. There is an unmarked grassy trail leading down from the peak which we mistook for the yellow trail but turned back pretty quickly and found the correct trail. The markings on the yellow trail were very faded and at times difficult to spot, but as long as you stop for a minute you can regain your bearings pretty easily. We passed a bunch of friendly people on the blue trail but saw absolutely no one on the yellow trail.

Hiked this mountain two weekends in a row with friends. Last week we took the blue trail both ways. Great scramble and reasonably challenging climb, especially closer to the top. This week we took the yellow trail up, and the blue down. We had a great hike both times, and the view is beautiful with fall foliage. A couple of notes. 1) I (and my hiking companions) would not recommend the blue trail for small children or for dogs, unless your dog is extremely agile and energetic. There are sections that are extremely steep, and the rocks are jagged in a few places. 2) the yellow trail is a great walk, but extremely poorly blazed. I'm sure the trail was harder to find due to fallen leaves, but there were several points at which we had to keep one person at the last known blaze and send others in different directions to find the trail. Many times the trail made abrupt turns with no blazes marking the turn. It made for slow going on what would otherwise have been an easy to moderate walk through the woods. It's a longer way to the top, even without the frequent stops to make sure you're on the trail, but this is definitely the trail to take with kids and dogs. Overall a really fun hike! Also, for those who want more or less company while hiking, the blue trail is much more populated than the yellow.

so many families

We took the ring trail to witch havel which takes you to the top. We were there for about an hour and a half including about 20 minutes at the top. There are lots of other trails and you can make it a longer hike if desired. all trails are very well marked. I wouldn't say it's an "easy" hike but we are beginners and we did it no problem

Hiked to the top of this mountain with our kids. Summit trail is only .3 miles and not difficult. We then took the longer North Loop Trail on the way down. The North Loop Trail is about 1 mile and is very easy. This is a great place for families! Also the view from the top is great. Highly recommend.

Nice trail, after about 40 minutes of up thru the woods ,trail opens up to ledges with beautiful views
Then runs along them to the top, we stopped at the southwest ridge took about 1.45 minutes and had lunch, and headed back . Great trail we will be back

great hammock spot and many wildflowers

What a great day for a hike yesterday. Trail is in really nice shape. We took the blue trail up and the yellow down and it made for a good loop.

This is a good last minute hike destination to choose since it is fairly quick. I wasn't blown away by the view at the summit but still worth the trek up for a few hours of outdoor enjoyment! We went on the first day of fall and the colorful leaves on the ground were a highlight for sure. There were a few places where the path was a little uncertain so look for the red signs on the rocks and trees as you go!

Really fun trail with lots of side trails. Dog loved it. Not too many people on a Friday afternoon.

A simple hike with enough elevation gain to be strenuous for me. I like to do a slightly shorter version of the trail (1.7 miles). . I turn around at the second and last outlook and don’t continue to the end. If you do that you’ll get a little more distance but almost no extra elevation and no more views. You’ll just walk a little further along the wooded ridge and I’m not usually interested in that.

I was turned off by the no dog thing- but on my way up- someone had a dog anyway- rebels... but seriously- a good hike- good views- but nothing to really look at except that scenic overlook- summit was very disappointing. It was ok, tho. Definitely good exercise! Just kinda boring.

Great hike! A bit hard in some places, but the views were nice!!

I’ve done this trail many times . Up and down the Blue only , one hour up and one hour down. I find it to be a good work out, with great views, and a nice little scramble at the top. I think it is one of the best hikes within an hour of Portland.Oh and as a reference I’m 71 years old

nice hike Ringo loved it.
