Great hike. The hike, however, was difficult through the snowy area near the top. A steady uphill grade all the way. Would love to do it again in the summer.

Tragically, the bare hillsides have been appropriated as unofficial shooting ranges. The entire trail (not just the hillsides) is littered with detritus from recreational gunfolk, and the noise was inescapable. Obviously no wildlife was present, not even a bird in sight.
This being said, the lookout point might be worth the short walk on a weekday when, hopefully, nobody's shooting.

Beautiful views! It didn't really feel like a mile. Would love to come back for sunrise/sunset

I started the hike at Connor's camp and I thought the hike was beautiful the whole way. It's not steep and the trail has been maintain really well. I would rate this hike as easy.

The view is worth the incline :)

Great views from the summit. On a clear day you can see the Coast Range, Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood.

beautiful views at the top on a clear dats- check the 6 mountains!

Amazing views!!

My dog and I had a great time hiking this trail on a sunny afternoon. It took us about an hour to summit and 40min to descend. Met very few people on the way. Quiet and peaceful. Somewhat challenging.
