This was a very quick with views of Gore Mountain and Loon Lake. It’s an easy hike that has decent views.

This was a nice quick hike to views of Gore Mountain and Loon Lake. The trail was a mixture of mud and snow and windy at the top. Overall I’ll do this hike again.

This was nice hike that had a steep section where you needed microspikes to get up the trail. There was a nice view of Gore from Meade Mountain summit. The trail was a mix of rotten snow, mud, and ice.

Nice, quick mountain!

An incredible trail that is well worth the hike. I was a bit out of shape so it was a little harder than I expected. We got up early so we could beat everyone onto the trail which is a great general rule if you want to keep at your own pace.

The views are incredible. One of my absolute favorite hikes.

I went during our winter in April weekend and it was absolutely beautiful with the trees frozen and the hint of snow covering it. Arriving at the bridge about 1/4 mile or so up was great due to the higher water level, the stream and falls were stunning. *About another 1/4 to .5 of a mile up, you have to cross the stream and there is no bridge. The water was to high for me to even attempt to cross it due to the rocks being icy.* I had to obviously turn around. It would be great if a foot bridge could be built over that crossing point. Overall, a great peaceful hike. I will definitely be back.

so gorgeous...

Road to trailhead was not plowed, trailhead was icy but rest of trail was packed and didn’t need snowshoes. The first half of this hike is very steep, 2nd half was an easy incline. Views from fire tower are the best, but it’s pretty sketchy up there and it was locked. Nice hike, spikes needed.

Pretty scenery with lots of informational signs about the flora. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of people and loud because of it. Great for people at all levels! An average person can probably do it in about 20 minutes, so it doesn't take long. Add it on to another hike in the area!

I went there yesterday and it was the bees knees. The beginning portion was very easy to navigate but it got real icy about midway through. The packed snow/ice normally wouldn’t have been an issue for me however it was one of those semi warm days so the ice started to melt making it really slick. I could only imagine how funny it was for other hikers watching me crawl the trail as my bald boots slid while they walked it with ease. Definitely recommend pointy trekking poles and or spikes for your shoes if you don’t wanna embarrass yourself. The waterfall itself was absolutely stunning. Icicles and mist from the water really added to the natural beauty of the waterfall itself. As an added bonus i got to slide down the hill on my butt on my way back. 11/10 would return

Pouring rain when we were there but very pretty. Short and easy loop.

There is lots of snow on the trail still so be prepared. We had to hike on the road for about 1.5 mile before actually getting to the trail head. Most people had snowshoes but we went without so you could do both. It was a pretty hike with all the snow but views were minimal since it was all whited out (reason for 4 stars). Definitely will try again!

25th March. Nice walk. Beautiful views.

Trailhead was super icy and slick. The rest of the trail had packed or melting snow which was easy to navigate. The views were terrific.

You may get winded on your way up, but take your time! The views are spectacular and you may see some mountain goats. Just don't get too close!

Super interesting to see the foliage in a temperate rainforest! Super easy hike, more of a walk, and the drive in to the trail heads was a great view too.

So much fun, and beautiful views! Went when there was still snow on the ground, would not recommend - very slick.

easy scenic hike. all levels can do this

The views at the top were gorgeous ! First two miles are definitely easy but the last mile is challenging for anyone without experience hiking. Rather steep incline especially after the first false peak. Snow shoes highly recommended. Took us about 3 hours round trip with conditions

Quick and steep, do not underestimate Prospect Mountain it will kick your butt.

I live locally, but this was my first time crossing the foot bridge and heading up Prospect Mountain. The trail was still icy and snow-covered in late March. I slipped up the first half of the hike and ended up giving in and putting my spikes on after crossing the highway.

There aren’t any breaks on this hike. It’s short, only about 1.6 miles to the top, but it’s steep. I was breathing hard at the top. The views are beautiful, and there’s a ton of room at the summit.

This is a very popular and well-traveled trail, which is a big downside. I’m selfish and I want the woods to myself. Probably won’t hike it again anytime soon, but it was a decent climb.

River Trail and Paraners Branch Trail. Two really nice walks. Rivertrail took you to the river sink and was a loop trail there were quite a few people on that trail the other one was very nice and went by several sinks.

Official name: Schumann Preserve at Pilot Knob a.k.a Pilot Knob Gazebo. My rating - slightly above easy. Trails are easy to follow, well marked. Great for beginners and kids, dog friendly. Trailhead easy to find, new-bigger and improved-parking. Gazebo can be hiked as a loop: in about 5 min hike in, you’ll come up to a JCT (well marked), go straight for more direct, steeper incline hike; or take right for more leveled (in comparison) trail with switch backs. Both trails marked orange. Good lake view, as well as of Cleverdale and Assembly Point. Past the Gazebo is blue trail to the seasonal waterfall. Semi-leveled trail in the woods, will bring you to small waterfall kids will adore. Return to the Gazebo same way. Round trip hike: 2 hrs in shape hiker, 3.5 hrs out of shape hiker. Round trip: 3 miles

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Visited last summer and the views were UNREAL. We did the loop in a clockwise direction, heading left at the trailhead; if you hike this way, then all of the elevation gain is done in the first mile or so and there are views the rest of the hike as well as a downward slope the rest of the 6 or so miles. Conversely, if you hike the loop counterclockwise, there will be a lot more uphill hiking as the elevation gain is spread out over the miles.

Road to and parking lot are plowed. Trail is nicely packed, fire tower is in good condition and the views were spectacular! Enjoy!

Another nice hike on a Saturday morning.

family loved it

Beautiful hike today in the snow. The waterfall was maybe even more spectacular than the last time I came in the middle of summer. Icicles and snow really added to the beauty. The trail was definitely slick (more packed snow than ice); spikes or poles would be a good choice.

solid hike did it mid march without snow shoes .... *dont do* but the hike was worth it great views from the summit if your trying to get a good photo go behind the fire tower
