    Billy and Judy McDonough reviewed Scarface Mountain

    2 months ago

    We did this hike to complete the saranac six and I will not do it again. The hike is pretty and challenging enough to give you a work out but there is no view and it is too long. The only view comes at the false summit and the true summit is 20 minutes farther.

    I love this kind of hiking. It took us 1 hour to get tho the turn off for McKenzie. It took us 2 hours to summit from there. You definitely have to pay attention to your footing and it is an uphill workout. The last hour is rock scrambling and climbing. I would absolutely do this hike again to see the views at the top as this was a cloudy day. It took 2 hours to get back to the split. From there we turned R and went to the Haystack herd trail which was .4 miles up on the L. Haystack was a quick easy hike after McKenzie and we were back to our car in 7 hours total time with 2 of the sixers completed. The trail was very wet after a night of rain. I really believe we could have done it faster in better conditions. It is definitely challenging but not as dangerous as other reviews would lead you to believe. I was nervous because of the reviews and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved this hike even with no views and our dog summited too.

    I feel so blessed to have been on the top of this mountain on a clear day. We saw Mt Ranier, Mt St Helen’s, Mt Adams, Mt Hood, and Mt Jefferson. We stayed at the summit exploring and taking pictures for a good hour and completed this hike in 3 hours including that time on top The chicken wire on the trail helps with footing. This is a must do hike. You see the ocean and the snow capped mountains

    Don’t let the scary reviews keep you from this hike. You need to use common sense but I never felt overly exposed or scared. We were able to see whales from both the top and from almost the top. We did the loop trail and were on the road for over half the hike down. We decided to jump on the beach and enjoyed the waves to complete our loop. The view is incredible with minimal effort. Don’t miss this

    My husband and I did this hike on a beautiful sunny day. The trail was easy to follow and we had no trouble completing it in sneakers. We hung out at many viewpoints and the top just soaking in the view and took the spur trail to the beach on the way back and rested by the water before heading out. Definitely worth repeating

    My husband and I hike from the south trailhead. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the summit. We arrived at the viewpoint and noticed a large climbable rock behind us. It was indeed climbable and we had incredible views from the top. There was an easier way down that can be clearly seen from the top. Going up it is on the right of the trail just before the view. After a good hour on top trying to memorize the view we continued to the north trail head and were rewarded with more incredible views as we were nearing the trailhead. We ran the 2 miles back to our car
