There is a stream to cross in the beginning. I don’t have an issue with my waterproof boots but you’ll be walking through water so come prepared. Moderately challenging at the end of the ascent —lots of stairs and an occasional scramble. Great hike for sunrise.

Awesome hike! I had to scramble maybe twice towards the top, but overall nice and tiring. Wide and narrow trails, no shade for the most part and rocky in some areas.

Too much water has made it impossible to pass and follow the trail.

Very challenging. Not ideal for people who need to sit down often or if you have much difficulty walking up inclines for extended periods of time (like .6 miles). Not many shady areas so keep that in mind for you and your pets.

Harder hike with beautiful sights. Took about 3 hours. Near the beginning you have to cross through ankle height water. Bring a towel and lunch or a bunch of snacks.

Great hike with a wide array of trail types and terrains. One of my favorites in mission trails and wasn’t too crowded at all!

No shade. You have to get your feet wet when crossing the river.

Very good trail. It got hard at some points but worth it once you get to the top.

River crossing got our feet wet but the trail was WAY less crowded than other mission hills trails.

The west side of south fortuna has stairs up the side. They are challenging but you don’t have to worry about slipping as much like you do on some of the other trails.

It was a Monday so not too busy. Beautiful 75 degree weather. Steep in some spots. As of today I have hiked all 5 Mission Trails peaks on the first 11 days of 2021!
