Getting There

Take a hike up the highest mountain on the Oregon Coast. This is a nice loop hike for some exercise on the wet Oregon Coast. You will hike through a mostly Douglas Fir forest on the way up the coast's highest mountain which can be seen from miles away north and south.

You will want a Northwest Forest Pass for parking here.

Look for signs for a parking area and trailhead about 4.5 miles south of the town of Port Orford on Highway 101.

Awesome views and well groomed trail until the very top! Stay to the right! The views are stunning! Going up the west side and down the east side makes the hike more like 6.5 miles!

Beautiful views, and it's great that most of it is a loop -- the east and west sides have quite different vegetation and scenery. As of 12/29/2020 there's a large downed tree on the East trail, but it's not hard to go around.

Great trail. It wasn’t muddy on this day. Lots of uphill to the top, but great downhill to follow. Spectacular views at top. Would be incredible at sunset. I lived it so much I chose to do the upper loop twice. Great run!!!

HikingBlowdownGreat!

Nice steep and short trail, we clocked the loop at just under 5 miles. There are 1/4 mile markers all the way up and down. They started out accurate, but our garmin watches noticed they weren’t quite by the top. Sadly rain rolled in at the summit but you could tell there would be a nice view, and a lot of seating area to enjoy on a nicer day!

The trees are cut back at the summit giving you a great view of the coast and ocean. It says on the waypoint no view. It is wrong.

Trail is well taken care of, three fallen trees over trail. Easily to get around them. View at the top is worth the hike. Several benches to rest up along the way and few at the top. Saw one gopher snake and a king snake. Parts of the trail you can still hear the traffic noise.

This is a good hike, but it's single file and the only level area is at the top. You're either going up, or you're coming down. The markers are very helpful. views from the top are beautiful.

Really enjoyed this hike, lovely scenery. I went up the east trail and down the west trail. Clear markers every 1/4 mile and at trail crossings. Watch for tree blocking east trail, other hikers have a path around but it’s a bit steep and loose just take your time. No trees blocking the view at the summit just hope you get a clear day. I’m not in great shape and this was a moderate to hard for me - lots of breaks on the way up. You do hear some noise from the road most of the way - not so loud or disturbing but it won’t feel like you are isolated in nature if that’s what you are looking for.

Really well kept, shaded the majority of the way so excellent for a trail run! One large tree downed on the west summit loop that I had to climb over, but otherwise perfect for a trail run with the doggo. I bet the summit is gorgeous on a less smokey day.

Good trail with Huckleberries and salal berrys on the east loop. View from the top is worth it.

It was a consistent uphill climb to the top, but worth it! The trail was almost all shaded and well-maintained, except for a huge tree that looked like it had recently fallen over the east side, we had to do some climbing to get over that on the way down!

Great trail. Nothing to intense, I’d say it was the perfect intensity for an afternoon hike. Many families were there and a few groups of two. Didn’t see much wildlife but I wouldn’t say that’s because it isn’t there. Now, go strap on your boots and put this hike to the test.

Great little trail. Not hard but just enough incline to make your lungs and legs work. The view at the top is beautiful. I got lucky and had blue skies, small crowd and light wind. If you have the time, take this hike.
