Beautiful wildflowers when I went (late July) but missed the bear grass bloom. Still gorgeous. Short hike but great views.

Great hike. Missed the bear grass bloom, but there were tons of other wildflowers along the way. Hot and sunny. Barely anyone here on a weekday.

We got there pretty late, the sun had already shifted enough that the majority of the hike was in the shade, all of the bear grass wasn’t bloomed in the moment so that was a bummer but the end view was worth it to see the sunset up at the top. Hike down got dark but was not bad if you watch your step and bring a headlight

Absolutely amazing! Heed the warning from others.. don’t follow signs, use GPS to lookout trailhead. Long rocky road but you will get there and it’s TOTALLY worth it!! We went July 13 for the bumper crop of Bear Grass and we WERE NOT disappointed! It was magical. And the views are jaw dropping. It was a warm day and much of the hike is in the open so sunscreen and water is a must. This photographer came home with some fabulous photos

Beautiful, moderate to easy trail. Getting to the trailhead is a bit of a scramble, in a small vehicle, but definitely doable.

Beautiful day 2 weeks ago. Got to the trail head early and got 3rd out of 4 parking spaces. Use AllTrails gps to get there. Gravel road up takes a while, so be patient. Sedans ok but a higher vehicle makes for a smoother ride. Hike itself was easy. I’d rate it moderately only if you go mid day w lots of sun due to the open air and not so much shade. Bring water for your pets. Wildflowers and bear grass was magical! The top has a huge area to eat and relax and take in 360 views. Most reviews I’ve read were on point! Enjoy this hike

July 13: Beargrass display is absolutely STUNNING. The problem is that everyone knows about it. Consider hitting the trail on a weekday or early morning. All Trails and Apple Maps routes you a somewhat challenging way. You can also pick up 1168 after following Straight Creek road for 4.1 miles forking uphill to the right. Other options in this area include Bachelor Mountain to summit or Bugaboo Ridge which is bursting with a rainbow of wildflowers but not the crowds.

The actual trail was absolutely beautiful!!! There were a lot of ‘fake’ trails from people wandering off trail. The trailhead was honestly pretty difficult to find. Follow the directions from all trails and NOT the signs on the road.

Hiked on 7/8: no bathrooms at TH, no pass/fee to park needed, road up is gravel and any small car can make it, Trail is well marked. This is one of the most unique, beautiful trails I have ever hiked. Well worth the 2 hour 40 minute drive to TH. Trekking poles are nice, the trail is steep in the beginning. Beargrass is so abundant it literally took my breath away...mostly sunny, some clouds obscured Mt Jefferson. Millions of wildflowers blooming and make sure u go all the way up to the lookout tower.

AMAZING!!! The bear grass is in peak bloom right now (July 6 2019) and it only blooms every 5-7 years. The views of Mt Jefferson, the Three Sisters and a couple other peaks are also phenomenal. It's steep and there's little shade but it's well worth it.

Beargrass blooms were off the hook!! An amazing hike to the look out tower. Flowers everywhere. View of Mt. Jefferson from various angles. Life is good on this trail!

I hiked this short, but steep, hike with friends on June 29. It is advertised as moderately hiked but that was not the case that day. No doubt the reason for that is because of the abundance of blooming bear grass which is a sight not many will see. This is the year for the blooming bear grass colonies once in every 5 to 7 year cycle. And the word is out. We came from southern Oregon and the drive for this beautiful little hike was well worth it.

Simply Stellar!

Outstanding wildflowers...puts Cone Peak to shame. Short but steep with views down to the Sisters and up to Adams (weather permitting). Relaxed on the helipad for a bit before descending...Coffin is one of the best bang-for-your-buck hikes in the state. If you're feeling particularly adventurous you can combine it with the nearby (tougher) Bachelor Mountain hike.

A stunning, steep hike with views almost the whole way. Tight switchbacks in some sections. The wildflowers are insane right now with a huge Beargrass bloom. The trailhead can be tricky to find.
