Really nice hike! Well-marked trail, flat for much of it and the uphills were not too steep. Several great outlooks on the way up. The peak was significantly windier/chillier than the bottom so bring layers. We loved the views, it wasn't too crowded, and it was an easy 2.5 hours up and back.

This was a spectacular hike, with an amazing view for relatively little effort. I completed this one with my 12 year old daughter and her friend, and while it took some effort on their part, they were quite please when we reached the summit. The trail was dry and well maintained. Very easy to follow. Definitely one I would do again, and one I would recommend to any interested in hiking to a mountain summit, even the 4 legged members of the family!

We did this trail late afternoon, ate dinner and waited for the sunset. it was beautiful. Hiked down with headlamps. Fun hike. Lots of switchbacks.

Party of 7 with three dogs hiked it July 30th. Hot day in the sun but most of the trail is shaded so the temps were great. Three or four great view points on trail, views of Garnet Mine and Gore Mountain and as you reach the final false summit and the actual top, great broad views of North Creek, the little valley it sits in and the ponds just north of town. Its an easy hike, even if you pack in some lunch supplies and drinks. Only gets steep just before the summit. Not a lot of shaded areas near the top, and there are some steep dangerous drop offs. Look at the map, good portion of the right hand side of the trail (during ascent) is pretty much sheer drop. But that's what gives the great broad views as well. Our party (12-50 yrs old) was up and back in less than 3 hours and we had lunch at the top. Trail head is easy to find and parking is ample. Its a busy trail, there will be other people Fri-Sun and almost everybody had a dog or 2 with them.

Wow such spectacular views! Multiple 'false' peaks totally worth the hike to the top. It was definitely harder than expected
