There is a fee at Heyburn State Park. It costs $6.00 for the day to park there. Or you can buy a year pass for $30.00.

Fabulous views from at the top. It seems like the climb going counterclockwise is more gradual. Nice and quiet away from the road. There is a nice picnic table at the top so take a snack and enjoy the view.

Gorgeous views from top of the ridge. Trail is well shaded. Elevation gain toward the beginning and then an easy trail from there.

This was an easy little hike with pretty views of Lake Chatcolet. It took me about an hour. Next time I go camping in Heyburn State Park, I will definitely do it again.

Nice trail, well maintained and great views. Just enough incline to raise your hart rate a bit, but not wear you out.

Pretty simple hike. It was great for our group of 5. I would suggest it for families and other groups as well. Nice climbs, nice views.

Nice family hike. The trail is easy to follow with pretty mild elevation gains and wanders mostly through light timber with a few small wooden bridge creek crossings. Many good views thanks to old burns and some excellent scenic views over the lake from the top of the cliffs. Great for a simple afternoon hike with kids.

The description says this is an out and back, but that's not really true, as there's only a very short initial section that you repeat, most of the trail is a big loop that circles a ridge with some mild cliffs.
