Awesome hike right in the heart of Prineville. The trail begins at the old ranch house and skirts the edge of some fields. Deer and other wildlife can often be seen through this area. The last half mile or so climbs steeply with some easy rock scrambling requires at the top, but the views encompass the entirety of the Prineville valley and stretch from the Cascades to the Ochocos.
