Beautiful views from the top

I started this hike in the clockwise fashion and that put the steepest part of the hike first. At the one mile marker there is a cattle gate you have to open to get through. At 1.3 miles you’ll come to a junction and there’s an open well, be careful not to fall in! Once I got to Dry Gulch Road I saw multiple signs that the rest of this hike was closed so I just followed the road back to the TH. All in all I did 3.6 miles with 1,085 ft of elevation and it took me almost 2hrs due to the multiple stops in the first mile. Beautiful fall day, clear blue skies, gentle breeze, but it is a high desert landscape, not my favorite.

My 4 year old did this no problem and I carried my 6 month old without much of a sweat! Good views

love the hike. Great way to really start building your endurance.

Great workout for the thighs. Really pretty views and such a peaceful hike. I maybe saw 3 people on the trail and started at 10am on a Sunday morning.

Very easy, short hike small incline just enough to start to feel a burn. For beginners short but sweet.

Good views of Wenatchee, fairly easy hike. No shade, bring water.

No dogs allowed past mile 0.9...so if you want to summit, dont bring your pup. no shade, and hot.

My fh and I did this hike yesterday. It was hot and dry! We accidentally hiked up the face of the saddle, which was extremely steep for a novice but we took it slowly and stopped when needed for water breaks. We made it to the top of the saddle and really enjoyed congratulating each other as we relaxed and took the in the views. We took the road on the way down. It was still steep but infinity easier than the way up.

nice easier trail

3 miles up and I started thinking why didn’t I bring bear mace. Turned around 15 minutes from the top.

This is a great family hike. It's steep enough you'll get a work out, but short enough you can take the kids. The view at the top is beautiful, but this is also where the trail gets a little rougher for the kids. There are additional trails at the top you can follow to extend your hike, if you choose. There is little shade, so go when it's cool outside.

This is a great, short family hike. The first part of the trail is quite easy, and there are some good view points along the way. There's no shade, so go when it's cool out. I wouldn't attempt to loop around the "castle rock" at the top without some hiking experience, and a decent shoe. Definitely don't plan on taking kids around the top, it gets challenging in a hurry.

Parking at North Junction via Zoom, a narrow one laner, but in good shape. Good thing nobody else was stupid enough to be hiking in all the smoke. Including Malory and the connector portion of Waterbar Heaven it was 6.0 miles.

Trail is in good condition. Glad I had poles for the uphill and downhill. Hazy due to fires but still pretty awesome views.

A little smokey from the wildfires, and pretty windy throughout, but great views all along the way. Great workout climbing up, though it was dusty and slippery on the way down.

Heard one rattlesnake but did not see any.

Great trail. Lots of exposure though due to recent forest fires so shade is few & far between. Go early in the morning & bring more water than you think you need if running in July or August. There are some emergency rations in the geocache box at the top of Russell’s Butte if you’re in a real crunch. The trail was great for running. It was single-track in many areas but still wide with good visibility. The final third of Mallory’s Trail to the summit of Russell’s Butte is pretty steep so if you’re trail running leave some gas in your tank for that.

Honestly this trail is so easy. But I work out and I hike. If you don’t work out it might be moderate. The last scramble to the top of the rock might be a little tough but that’s it. The view is nice. But I would not consider this to be a “hike” more of a leisure inclined walk I guess

its pretty at the top

Great hike! Beautiful views of the Columbia river. Not to hard but will definitely get your heart rate going! My 6 year old and I make it to the top every time! We love it as a weekly hiking route!

2 rattle snakes but aside from this fun, quite a Peak to bag! 2700’ of gain in 4 miles. Not bad!

Easy at the bottom, challenging if you continue to the VERY top! The view of our valley is a huge reward

Gorgeous trail. You get steep rock climbing, meadows, fields, desert and the best part was 6 huge bucks in velvet at the top!

Nice hike though quite steep in some areas. Excellent bathroom situation at the trailhead. Also there is a convenient drinking fountain to collect water.

Definitely a challenge, but so rewarding.

Definitely one of the harder hikes I’ve done, but the views the whole way up were well worth it.
