Beautiful views on the way back, and gorgeous forest scenery. Not too difficult and a great family hike, especially if you get a great day of weather on the coast!

Start with the western trail for best views on the way up. At the top, be sure to veer to the left to see the military battery; very Darma Initiative like (Lost fans). I'm not exceptionally fit but managed the climb fine; helps to have so many photo opps to catch your breath.

So fun! I want to do it again! I would recommend going up the small trail and coming down the more wide, paved trail. The small trail (to the left at the start) has switchbacks while the other side is straight up hill.

Great trail... yeah it's got mud. It's Oregon. We passed several people on the trail in flip flops. Lol, again it's Oregon. Next rip out to the PNW I will backpack the entire Lewis and Clark Trail. Thanks Oregon!

Did the hike and it was beautiful! Very muddy and a few fallen trees but just amazing!

A very simple trail though if you do it counter clockwise be prepared to do a constant 1+ mile uphill which is extremely tedious and annoying but at least it will always be in the shade. Best to do it clockwise, if you want it to be easier.
