The road to the trailhead is well maintained. It’s a dirt road but there were not any potholes and I made it a Ford Focus. I loved that I only saw two other parties on this hike. Bring more water than you think you’ll need. The incline isn’t too bad, but towards the top of the mountain there is very limited tree cover and it gets toasty. I went through my entire camelback and a hydroflask. Beautiful hike, will have to do it again when there isn’t any smoke.

8/30/3020: Started off steep, but not too difficult. Missed the wildflower bloom. Beautiful clear day! No amenities or facilities available at trailhead. Parking is limited (maybe 4 or 5 cars). Be sure to wear bug spray and sunblock as a lot of the trail is exposed! We did see a black bear and immediately turned and hiked back to the car!

Easy trail to follow. Steep sections mixed with fairly flat sections. This hike brings good variety. I wouldn't label this as a hard hike, it's longer, but the trail is excellent.

There is not an official TH marker at the start of this hike. The wildflowers were absolutely amazing! So many and so colorful. This is a pretty steep trail but pretty short.... it’s harder on the knees coming down! Very few people for a holiday weekend. You can look across the forest and see the Coffin Mt Lookout.

Directions listed takes you exactly where you need to go. I took a small car and was able to make it up just fine. The hike itself is 2 miles going up hill and then 2 miles coming back down the same way. Coming down, watch your footing so you don’t slip on the gravely path. Very isolated and not many people come park at this spot. Also there are plenty of wild flowers in bloom today when I went. If you are looking for a place of peace and quietness this is the place. Added bonus is the Mountain range view from the peak.

A great trail with incredible views, numerous wildflowers are blooming, just a few blowdown across the lower trail section that are easy to get over/around.

It was pretty chilly- need a puffy when at the top. No snow except for literally one patch off trail. Saw a deer! Didn’t look like it was used to seeing people, either. But it was a gorgeous view and there was almost no one there!! We only saw one other couple. The trail was pretty easy to follow, and not long at all. I would totally hike it again!!

Completed 6/14/20 Drive: Follow the directions at the top of this trail’s page, they are correct. Half the drive is paved and then about 5mi is gravel with almost no potholes. Easy for any car. Parking: room for maybe 4-5 cars so get there early. No bathroom. Trail Conditions: At the beginning, 5 fallen trees that are no problem to get over or around. In the middle, a little bit of overgrowth. Towards the top, some snow still left but very doable with winter hiking boots or just walk in other people’s tracks. Snow will probably be gone in a week, it’s melting fast. View: gorgeous 360 degree views, it was breathtaking!!! Flowers are blooming, no bear grass though.

As an adventurer from The Appalachian Mountains, I found this trail great from start to finish. Views of Mt Jefferson, Hood, Adams, Broken Top and the Sisters was breath taking. On clear days you can even get a view of Mount St. Helens. If I ever return to Oregon, I definitely want to do this hike again.

The second half seemed like the hardest part, as you have to start scaling over rocks with a steep slope. Payoff at the top is well worth the effort. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen!

Hiked yesterday. Awesome. Plenty of flowers. Tiger lilies, sedum blooms and bear grass, aster, black eye Susan, purple hearts, plus hummingbirds. Stretches of shade and lichen on trees for cool downs. Ridges are safely maintained, sunny and not hazardous.. False summit is a good photo place. No snow. Top has remnants of fire watch station with melted glass. Cool trail viewing mt theilson at beginning with coffin mountain fire watch to the south. Then growing views of 3 sisters, mt Washington, 3 finger Jack and then Mt Jeff in its finest at the peAk. Then you get a eye full of Mount Jeff. My fitness ap said 5.1 miles and not 3.5 so I think it is wrong.
