Randonnée très difficile. Nécessite une très bonne condition physique et de très bonnes chaussures avec un bon cramponnage. La montée et très physique et la descente difficile et glissante. Un seul point de vue sur toute la montée et même au sommet la. Vue est très limitée. A par pour l’effort physique cette randonnée n’est pas très intéressante.

After circumnavigating an old orchard, the trail gets back on a moderately steep fire road. Lots of good signs and amenities on this hike, including nice picknic tables and restrooms at the top of the main trail. Great views over the old orchards.

decent trail. starts at 4000+ ft elevation and climbs another 1800+ ft. super wide fire road most of the way. I think it's more of a moderate than hard hike. not a lot of things to see on the way up but the view of clearlake from the top is nice

This trail was challenging for me (an out of shape 45 year old). I made the mistake of starting at 11:30. The sun was very brutal even though temp wasn't bad. I took many breaks on the way up, including a stop to see the old cabin. Took me 3 hours to summit, but only 1.5 to go down the mountain. The views are amazing and I really enjoyed talking with the volunteer in the fire tower.

first mile or so is a steep incline but it is worth the view from top. i have completed all 3 peaks; Buckingham, Howard's and Wright's. Wright's is the best one with the fire lookout. if someone is manning the station, they will let you in for a look.

Very fun hike with great views, worth the climb. Although there is significant elevation change, the wide smooth trail and gradual elevation gain makes for a moderate hike. Only partially shaded so sun protection definitely advised. Didn’t see any rattlesnakes but did see the tracks of one- keep an eye out! Free parking after a windy bumpy ride to the trailhead. Multiple bathrooms and benches along the way up made for a nice trip.

This is an awesome but steep hike for good butt kicking start to getting back into shape! The views are beautiful for the start. Just be warned when it gets hot the rattle snakes come out! My ex almost stepped on a baby rattle snake and it scared us! I would not let dogs do this hike. Especially not on a leach. Still worth the beautiful hike.

This is a great trail for some excellent exercise and amazing views of clear lake. if you like in the morning, you're likely to be the only person on the mountain. there's no way to get lost because most of this trail is on a fire road.

Good hike, 6.9 miles from the #2 (first one you see) parking lot. The trail actually starts from the main parking lot which is after the first one you see. Decent amount of shade.

Great hike. There was snow and mud at times, but it’s a gravel service road the entire hike. Good climb in elevation makes this somewhat strenuous, but it’s not technically challenging. Beautiful views. We had our one year old and 3 year old on our backs.

walking on road except for one portion that goes around private property.

Great hike with dogs.... rugged straight hill up the mountain. Should have had much more water.

You hike through part of an orchard, but it is mostly a truck trail. Amazing view of Lake County, orchards, and surrounding mountains.

Wonderful trail! A nice challenging incline to the peak. The whole trail is dirt road which can be slippery on the loose gravel on the hike down. Jerry, a fire association volunteer, was kind enough to invite us to enjoy the stunning views of Clear Lake from the fire tower. Awesome hike!

The orchards and oak forests are great highlights of the hike. Its the view from the top which is best. Mt. Lassen Mt. Tamalpais and the Sierra Nevada seem within reach on a clear day. Roughly an hour to Summit at a good pace.

I went on a smokey day, but it was still fantastic. The volunteer at the CalFire station was really cool to talk with about the station and his experience. Great info-plaques about the history and area on the way to the top and there was even clean bathrooms on the trail.

Fantastic views. Very steep hike. Make sure you have tons of water. One bathroom at the parking lot, two on the trail. Lots of shady spots. We went during a 92 degree day and found with sunscreen and all the rest spots and shady areas it was quite pleasant.
