Great hike. We loved it. Took the "more difficult" on the way up and the "difficult" on the way down. It was straight up and a really good workout!

The trail itself is one of my all-time favorite trails. I like to start on the GSL, then connect to the Light House. Once you get to the light house, climbing the formation isn't too difficult. But it does have a couple of places that are physically demanding to get to the top. I wouldn't advise the climb for the very young, very old, or if you aren't comfortable lifting your body weight. Otherwise, just the trail it self is awesome, please bring several liters of water. It's hot, dry, and no real shade coverage. Enjoy

This place gets amazinger and amazinger. Great hike up a steep trail to some beautiful scenery. Views of Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, and the Columbia River Gorge. Parking cost $5, so have cash or your smartphone to pay. Restrooms 100’ up from the trailhead. Very dog friendly. Quite a lot of foot traffic for such a difficult trail.

Great trail some rock climbing beautiful views at top.

Love this hike! Beautiful mountain and creek views. Challenging, but awesome if you are looking for a long hike. Well maintained and not crowded.

The sunrise views were AMAZING

Great hike, a little harder then we were thinking. Brought two labs along, they got muddy but the Arch gave a nice view and a great place to sit and eat a little snack. The hike it self was out and back, the way there being mostly up hill. I thought it was "moderate" but definitely some slippery rocks this time of year. Wish i had worn my hiking boots, no my old tennis shoes.

Awesome trail. Great for when other trails are wet. This one seems to stay dry when others are not. Quick 7 ish mile ride. Takes under 1.5 hours on a mountain bike. Some challenging spots when climbing. Amazing downhills. Beautiful scenery.

Good workout and definitely a challenge for a beginner. Great views up top. Pretty busy and kind of muddy near the top but not too bad. Careful coming down.

Fantastic view on top. Except the last mile, the rest is moderate.

Was a beautiful and moderate to hard hike. Definitely a little more challenging but not that bad if you’re a usual hiker. Went with 2 people that don’t usually hike from Texas and they had a little bit of a hard time but did it with breaks in between. There’s absolutely no snow at the top, so don’t believe that. Micro spikes would be completely pointless. Beautiful view at the top, but really doesn’t open up until you’re at the top. Worth it.

One of the most beautiful trails I’ve been on yet. 7.5 miles is very doable even for the most reluctant rookie hiker. Trials are in good shape and there are very few muddy spots. Active trial for hikers and bikers alike.

Great views at the top!

Amazing hike, best I have done in West Texas/southern New Mexico so far. Trail is well maintained and easy to follow. You can wear shorts if you choose, no bushwhacking involved. Great view at the top and there was just a slight breeze the entire time I hiked, even with a strong wind on the drive up. 1.5hrs up, 1hr down (jogged a good portion down).
The route is closer to 8mi round trip.

Top ten hike!

Mt Si was a brutal beast yesterday 4/21. So much beauty at the top. My health tracker documented 10 miles. No snow on the ground. Great training hike for Mt St Helens. Will be back!

Was there yesterday, beautiful hike! No need for spikes, very light snow cover at the top but very manageable in sneakers or boots. Perfect day hike to celebrate earth day!

Got there at 10am on a Saturday. The slot canyon was pretty clear but I can see how going later would be a pain when there's traffic in the narrows. Gorgeous hike, the rocks are amazing.

Hiked on Thursday. First of all BEAUTIFUL trail and everyone is so nice and there were so many dogs ON LEASHES TOO! It’s a toughy for me at least and my back started giving my trouble at 3.5miles but I knew I had to keep going. Brought my spikes but didn’t use them for the last bit, just took it nice and slow. I’ll be back

Hiked 4/20/18...sunny day, a few wildflowers out but the full wildflower bloom is probably a few weeks out. Route: up Dog Mountain Trail, down Augspurger and clocked about 10 miles total.

Sooooo much fun. still needed micro-spikes for the last mile in the snow and ice. Simply gorgeous. The old growth Douglas fir trees are beautiful neat the mid-way point.

Loved this trail! We went later in the day while it was still cool and beat a thunderstorm coming back in. Didn’t see many others and at one point had to stop and admire the beauty and the great silence of such a vast place with no sound. Awesome!

Get there very early to avoid bottle necks in the narrow canyons. But otherwise the hike is phenomenal. The view from the top is beautiful and the narrow canyons were stunning.

Gorgeous hike. Can be heavy traffic on the weekend but still not bad. The view is worth the hike.

I loved this hike because it was a great workout with quick elevation gain. I also loved the scramble at the top. It’s not a heavy traffic trail which is always a bonus. Gorgeous views all the way up. I agree with other reviews about not doing this trail when there is moisture due to steep incline with a lot of loose rock and it can be slippery. The trail is closest to entrance 4 of red rocks and not clearly marked but I finally found it :) will be doing this one often.

Beautiful day on the trail. Even though this is ranked moderate it’s a tough one. The views from the arch are incredible.

Very beautiful trail with lots of interesting geology. Challenging for us amateurs, but not too much. Go early to avoid crowds.

I really enjoyed hiking to the top of Texas' highest peak. Thank you very much to the people responsible for building and maintaining this well-maintained trail. Thank you also to whoever was responsible for putting the shiny metal monument marker at the top of the mountain. It was very cool having such a prominent marker at the top of the mountain. Note: near the top of the trail, well above the camping area, there's a section of the trail where you can take it to the left or the right, and both places and up back on the trail, but you should take the left way that has you go over bed rock to the opposite side of the ridge, rather than the right side (muddy) which takes you needlessly over a short but steep "up and down" back to the trail. Both ways work, but you can save yourself a bit of needless aggravation by taking the correct trail path that goes left at the spot,
