You could stop hiking as soon as you get out onto the field section, but going all the way to the top was hard and worth it.

I have been on this hike many times over the past 15 years. Usually, I take the popular way up - from the bottom trail head at Three Rocks. Last weekend I decided to come in from the top. I parked at the gate off Highway 101 and walked in on National Forestry Road 1861. This is a wide gravel road that goes 4 miles to another parking area...and I should have parked here in hindsight! But it was a gorgeous afternoon, and I had plenty of water and snacks - so what the heck. It's a continuous uphill then downhill walk that will give your leg muscles a definite workout. Took me about 2 hours each way. Drive to the second parking area unless you need to burn off a few pounds. The views from the top are always stunning, so either route there gets you the same results. Highly recommended hike and a must see viewpoint from the Oregon coastline!
