Stunningly beautiful hike but equally as dangerous in deep snow. We completed this hike in Jan and while the scenery, particularly at the summit, are unparalleled in beauty when covered in snow and ice the risk is high you can wander off trail. We found waist high snow and no visual cues for the trail which created a very dangerous situation at times. Highly recommend, but please take extreme caution if you venture up in the snow.

This trail from start to summit is more than 2.5 miles. We tracked it at 4.20 miles. Felt great to summit but the view was disappointing. Partially due to the clouds and snow falling but also the short stubby trees. Will hike again in better weather.

A short, but thoroughly enjoyable hike to the top. It was a little rainy but otherwise good weather wise. I’ll be going again.

Rated moderate because you will be going up inclined switchbacks most the time up. Easy enough for all levels though as it’s only a mile and many breaks can be taken. View up at the top is great, but can get crowded as there is not a ton of room.

We hiked this trail in the rain and it was actually still quite enjoyable. The last mile or so was covered with snow and was a little colder. Overall, great trail. I’d say on the clear day it probably has great views.

Absolutely amazing hike! Just kept getting better and better. Would definitely recommend if I’m the area!

foggy and cold ams raining and windy as all get out. I wouldn't rate it hard but I will definitely be going back when it's a clear day.

I only went two miles up for a view of the gorge and the sunrise. The switchbacks can be a little brutal, but had there been adequate lighting it would’ve been significantly easier. It was still twilight when I went up, but so worth it.

I love this trail as I seem to see something cool every time. Today, near the top, there was some ice and snow which looked really neat on the moss. I also saw a grouse(?) kill. Just feathers. Must have been a raptor that just plucked it up. I also had a conversation with a woodpecker about three feet in front of me, pecking furiously at what seemed to me to be little more than a twig. But what do I know? I’m not a woodpecker. Anywho, he was completely nonplussed by my presence. He looked at me looking at him and went right on pecking. I could have reached out and touched him. After a bit, I thanked him and continued my trek, carefully avoiding the poison oak. Stay on the trail. Consider microspikes or trekking poles.

Solid hike. A little muddy but not bad. Summit was clouded over but the false summit was beautiful. Dress warmly!

An easy to moderate challenge with great views, elevation changes, & falls/rivers. Definitely muddy in spots, so wear boots. Can be slippery as you near the water, & the trail is steep there, so caution. Beautiful views of the gorge & Beacon Rock, all-year round!

Great hike, but not for amateur hikers! Many switch backs all the way to Hamilton Point, Rocky and snow covered. Did this hike on Christmas Morning, 8:30a, there was nobody on the trail, when we finished at 2p the parking lot was completely full. Worth it to keep going all the way to The Saddle! that's the best view through the Beacon State Park both towards the Gorge and towards Central Washington. To Hamilton Peak and Back is about 8 miles, to Saddle and back is about 12miles.

Got about an inch or two of snow this morning.
