Great trail. Well maintained. Exhausted after but it was totally worth it. We went this month (March) which was accidentally a really good time since it was the perfect temperature. Unfortunately I wasn't expecting the ticks to be out in full force and I pulled over 20 off of my dog, fortunately only two stuck. So be prepared with a tick collar or something for your canine pals. Other than that loved the hike!

This trail really felt strenuous. I think perhaps because it is relatively short (3+mi to the summit) it is rated moderate but it feels harder than that. The views of the surrounding mountains were spectacular. The Applegate lake was pretty. other than those two, it was a steep trail in our beautiful Oregon wildness.

Really easy

I agree, trail needs a lot of maintenance

ran into a black bear...family talked me into climbing up dilapidated and swaying lookout


beautiful! my husband proposed here!

great hike!


great all day adventure. ..I did run into two black bears...

hiked it 3 times...

nice views!

a great hike in southern Oregon, as the trail leads you through forest and opens to great views of the valley & surrounding mountains. can remain snowy on the north/shadowed side so plan ahead! easily a 3-4 hour loop if you don't hurry through it. dogs love it too.
