We did this hike 11/12/18 If you are coming from the south, (Cottage Grove side) Rd. 1751 is closed due to a landslide about 2 miles before the trailhead, you can park at the road closure and hike the road up to the trailhead. This turns the hike into an almost 7 1/2 miler. If you want to stay with just hiking the Mt. June trail itself, I would come in from the north side.

This was our first summit and it did not disappoint. Weather was foggy and misty. Lower section of the trail through the forest is gradual. When the trail meets with the PCT is when the steep grade starts. It only gets worse from there. The main trail is to the left on the mountain but is hard to find at times. Very rocky, do not trust your footing. Many loose boulders and slabs. You feel this one in your glutes the next day!

We did the pinnacle, on a very windy, foggy day with no experience. It wasn't all that bad. Took us a bit to scramble up- maybe 15 minutes. Hung out at the top for a bit and came back down. Came back down SO fast (not even 5 minutes). Including *many breaks* we did this hike in a little less than 8 hours.

8-18-18 western route. my fist time and made it! the hike through the woods is moderate and beautiful. There’s glimpses of Diamond Lake in front of Mt Bailey where we started. Once we got into the clearings it’s a gravelly hike up until we got to bigger and and more solid boulders and rocks which had better foot holds. At the base of the spire is an 80 degree rock climb to the summit. There’s plenty of good hand holds and even ledges that u can stand on to climb up to the summit. It took me 4 mins to get to the top and I had a friend at the base to give suggestions on which way looks better. The view is the best 360 I have ever had! The climb down was longer, ~15 mins. I had hiking piles until the rock scramble. I will do this again!

The trail itself is beautiful, short and steep enough to be considered a workout. The view at the top is beautiful, even on a partly cloudy day. It is pretty hard to get to the trailhead, convoluted in the end and a total lack of markers. If you don’t use your trip odometer in the truck or car, I doubt you will find it. The road was rough and you really needed AWD for the last couple miles. Beautiful view!

Great day hike. Look down into the crater lake bowl, great views of diamond lake and can see for miles. Pretty easy to the PCT junction then a fun rock scramble( just be respectful if other people around as lots of loose rocks) capped off by a fairly easy 80-100ft rock climb up to the peak. The climb down is a bit more challenging though.

At the top there is room for up to three people at the same time maybe so enjoy the views take pictures and leave your name in the metal canister there if you wish. Overall a good workout but more than worth it!

First three miles are a climb at about a twelve to fifteen percent grade, scramble starts on the last mile, the last seventy feet are the climb and if you're lucky and there's a ripe someone who's climbing it that day lets you use, you're in luck. Best hike of my life. Tough. But so good. Bring layers and something for your skin for the windburn! Last mile is exposure central!

This was a thrilling ascend, East side. not a lot of room on top, but enough to eat a sandwich and head back down.

beautiful trail through old growth forest with an amazing view at the summit.

Great climb up to the top of Thielsen! The route is snow-free and tail is well-defined, basically up to the pinnacle.

For the summit pinnacle, head to the east face (right side) and look for a small gully. From the top of the gully, begin your accent on the far right and stay on that side for the entire scramble, shading slightly back to the south (left).

Not a terrible scramble if you're experienced, maybe class IV... if you don't have experience this one will scare the crap out of you due to its exposure.

Message me if you have questions! Cheers.

It was the perfect weather, the smoke had cleared, and conditions were ideal!
The first part of the hike is pretty easy, up to the point where you intersect with the PCT.
Then the real elevation gain starts and it gets pretty tenuous on the loose rocks.
The climb to the summit is easy climbing, and we did it with minimal trad gear- I placed one piece of pro about 50’ up and there are plenty of places to anchor at the top.
Views are phenomenal, and exposure is significant but not crazy.
Rappelling off needs a 60 plus meter rope to get all the way to the base of the climb.
Super loose scree slope the way we went down which was fun in some places, and treacherous in others. Recommend ankle high boots or ankle gaiters to keep the rocks out.

I didn’t actually do this complete shorter trail, but the views at the summit are amazing! One of the best hike views I’ve seen. There is a longer trail you can do but I do not recommend it unless you’re with someone who has done it before. It is not marked at all until one point and it is extremely easy to miss that sign! We missed it and ended up hiking 5+ extra miles that day. I’d stick to this shorter one and it is absolutely worth the incline!

Super tough hike. Totally worth it though, I almost made it to the summit but I was by myself with no climbing gear. The worst part was going down the huge decline with a lot of loose rocks and pebbles. I would DEFINITELY recommend going with someone and bringing climbing gear!!

Fun hike and climb! The last bit was daunting!

Definitely not an easy climb. Pretty warm and dry up at the top in mid July. Recommend lots of water, trekking poles, buff or hoodie. Bug spray for the lower part of the trail is mandatory as well. The only confusion came is when you hit the cross trial of the PCT. The trail up the mountain is not maker at all. To get to it is strait between the fork in the road after a few steps you will pick it up fairly easy. From that point on it gets rocky so take your time.

great hike. not bad at all if in halfway decent shape. tons of mosquitos so wear strong stuff
blast through the woods to ridgeline and then it gets rocky. there is a meandering trail that can be easy to lose in the shale. don't trust footing it will betray you. give person in front space.
final scramble is cake. pilot rock is more technical, no rope in needed.

Didn’t summit but hiked in 4 miles to the ridge overlooking the avalanche valley and peak and camped overnight . Incredible view.

5 stars for the view at the top! I didn’t actually hike all of the 2.8 miles track as we opted for the longer 7+ miles hike. I don’t recommend the longer one unless you’re with somebody who’s done it before. The trailhead is not marked and there was a sign along the way that was almost impossible to see on your way up and we ended up hiking 5+ miles in the wrong direction. But the actual Mount June summit is absolutely gorgeous!

Great hike with amazing views! Rock climbing was super sketchy. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen!

Really well maintained trail! Nice drive up - follow directions carefully and set your odometer to find the last access road 1721. (small triangle of road on the left when approaching) Some light hail, cloudy day so no view for us, but still worth it! Great exercise - suggest poles and/or walking stick because this trail is s t e e p!

This was a very challenging hike, yet very rewarding. We still had patches of snow that were deep higher up the trail and it made it almost impossible to keep eyes on the trail, so we blazed our own. The climbing is not as easy as some make it out to be. The summit block may be class 3-5, depending on your abilities and experience, however, on the way up there is a section of class 5 climbing with quite a bit of exposure. This was my first summit, however, I went with two experienced friends who have summited Mount Hood 8 times between them. The variation we took, according to them, is more difficult to climb than Hood. Be safe, make smart decisions, and have fun.

We had a some rain, hail, snow, and splash of sunshine. A nice short adventure in the mountains for my birthday

Attempted this 3 times and only made it to the top once. The last bit is insane.

We enjoyed this hike very much. Excellent views. Steep so there are many opportunities to stop and enjoy your surroundings on the way up while catching your breath. We hiked up at dusk and came out with headlamps after a beautiful sunset.

This was a rewarding hike. We hiked in to Thielsen Creek and camped for the night and then summited the next day. It was a tough hike for me, but it was worth it at the top.

Fun hike, had the trail all to ourselves!

We were looking for Hardesty Trail but couldn't find it and we ran into this. Short hike, but very consistently uphill which makes for a challenge. Great views at the top.
