Neat hike to the top to see the Astoria column. Also a way to save the $5.00 parking fee! Steep incline with many tree roots. We hiked this and then did the 164 stairs to the top of column. Beautiful views.

Nice hike, mud isn't too bad and easy to avoid. The tree is neat and the column is really cool. Worth it to go to the top but can get crowded

Easy hike but the map at the trailhead says the trip will be longer than it is. Climb the column at the top when you get there.

couple muddy spots but not bad at all

Very muddy appears motorcycles have been riding it also, very rutted out

extremely muddy except for a few months out of the year

Good running trail

It's a short muddy walk in the winter.

I took my 2 and 4 year old from the top by Astoria column to the tree and back up they loved it!! Would definitely recommend this to people with small kids.

It is an OK trail. Great for a quick run. It isn't too isolating; you can hear cars on roads. The column is beautiful and maintained very well. Worth going if you are familiar with history.
