This was a great hike! It was my first time, so I took it at a casual pace. The first 30-40 minutes is the most difficult, since it's mostly uphill. Once I got to the marker at the beginning of the loop, I chose to head right and go to the summit. Next time, I'll head left. Why? If you head right, you'll hike through acres of burned trees (so sad) and there's not a lot of shade. FUN FACT: The bugs are super-sized! No mosquitoes though, which I was worried about. If you're new to the area, drive all the way to the end of the road. There will be NO MORE road, just an area to park. If you don't see a semi-large area to park, you haven't gone far enough. You'll find the trailhead right next to a unisex restroom. Happy trails!

I've done this hike about a half dozen times or so, most recently on Memorial Day, 5-29-17. This is a great time of year to go with wildflowers blooming. On a clear day, you'll see Mount Shasta from the summit.

Really enjoyed this hike. We hiked it easily with a baby on our back on May 26th. We went up and took the Summit route first and got a but confused because it's a little anticlimactic. Definitely recommend continuing with the loop route because that's where the real views and beauty is! Definitely recommend this hike.

Incredible hike! 360 degree views of the Rogue Valley. As new Oregonians, this was a perfect hike to see the area.
