Awesome hike with beautiful views. My GPS was wonky and made me think I couldn’t drive on 1168 (the gravel road) but you definitely can. I didn’t have any issues parking. The trail was pretty narrow and up hill from the start. Anyone in mildly okay shape should be able to do this hike. I only saw 5 people on the trail.

8/30/2020: Bring sunblock! Much of the trail is exposed with no shade. Arrive early as parking is limited. Great views throughout the hike and the summit is awesome! No facilities available at trailhead. Unfortunately we saw several toilet paper "flowers" along the parking area, so we picked them up.

Love this trail, basically views for days and way cooler temp-wise than heading around Bend. Also no bugs! it is exposed so bring plenty of water and yes there are rocks but most is a smooth trail (no need for poles). I can report all of 1168 is open, you can drive up by taking the second 1168 turn-off or the first 1168 (they appeared to have cleared the trees). Gorgeous flowers on the way, don't forget to go to the spur offshoot to the other peak.

Visited Tuesday 7/22/20, no other cars at TH besides a ranger fire vehicle at 1:03pm. No bathrooms here, not handicap accessible, no handicap parking and not recommended for handicap nor small children (trail is steep, rocky and steep drop offs). Tiny parking area (5 vehicle's). Do not follow directions via Google maps, the first 1168 is closed (this road is by a small pull out/parking area, a little past this on the paved road is a sign with coffin mountain on it.) or there is road work going on, follow the paved road till forest road 11 and go to the second Forrest road 1168 after on the second Forrest 1168 directions are fine, up until then Google will try to get you to go back to the first one, just ignore. It was mid 80s and hot with lots of bugs (biting flies and mosquitoes included). This was our second hike of the day and I forgot to refill my bladder so I ran out of water before we reached the lookout. Make sure you have enough water. Depending on the time of day there is very little to no shade. There was some nice wind and shade on the way up, but I still sweated a ton. On the way down there was little to no wind, no shade and at the top no wind, no shade. This is a functional fire lookout, there was a ranger at the lookout working and scanning for fires, though he did tell my friend he was going home that evening. The trail has very few flat areas most times it's steady incline and then a steep and this is how it goes all the way to the lookout. We did not check out the radio tower on the trail to the left as it was hot! Another day. The Bear grass is out of season, but there are plenty other flowers blooming as well as pretty butterfly's. 2.58 miles w/ 985 ft elevation gain. We had the lookout and trails all to ourselves, besides the ranger at the lookout.

Drove out on 6/27/20 to hike this trail only to find that the road was closed for construction. The road closure is located where Parkett Rd/NF1168 fork, which is probably about 1/3 of the drive in.
