Lots of wildflowers right now! Heavily trafficked. Past the second bench there is a side trail up to a rocky outlook on the south side of the mountain which was fun but dangerously steep on loose dirt in a few spots, you need good traction and balance and perhaps a touch of willingness to do some sliding on your butt coming back down. At the overlook at the end of the trail there are several spots to go exploring out on rocks to get even better views. Great trail overall.

Takes a little effort to get to the end but very cool once you do. Large open area where you could picnic, relax, rest, etc. The worst part I thought was the drive up. I have a fairly new car and the unpaved road is very rough. Glad I went on a week night after work as there didn’t seem like there was much parking.

I agree with previous poster. it was a beautiful hike, but was surprised at the steep climb. Strenuous at times for an old gal like me, but the view was well worth the struggle.

Beautiful view the whole way! The trails were a bit more narrow and steeper than expected but still easy enough for a novice hiker such as myself.

Still a great trail in December. Found minimal ice, completed in 45 minutes. the wind coming out of the canyon at the top was brutal at 30 degrees in the valley so dress warm.

This hike is moderately easy. There are two resting lookout benches to sit on on the way and then one at the top to sit on to enjoy the beautiful view. The trail is nice. The views are absolutely amazing. This is one of my favorite hikes in the area.

Smooth and easy little hike. The incline is gradual and the view is certainly worth the hike. Pretty good chance you'll see other hikers. There is a great variety of flora if your interested in bringing a field guide.

This hike was amazing because it is an easy 1.4 miles in and 1.4 out, the view at the top of the overlook is incredible and breathtaking. You are able to see canyon in its entire beauty.

Uphill but not steep. Fun hike. Amazing views. Nothing beats looking at the valley on one side and the canyon on the other. Looked like a painting on the backside!! Gorgeous. Fun. Worth the effort for sure!!!

Breathtaking view of Blodgett Canyon at the top, and beautiful post-fire landscape with flowers and young trees on the way up. Lots of views of the valley below.
