This was the hardest hike I’ve done so far. If you’re looking to challenge yourself and reward yourself with a beautiful scene at the top then this trail is definitely for you. Be prepared for rock climbing. Poles are suggested, it makes it a bit easier.

Brutal but fun hike! A few muddy spots today but generally dry and well-kept trail. Plenty of rocks and tree roots to pick over up the steep incline, but well worth the thigh-burner with spectacular views at the top! Wildflowers currently blooming, as well. Would not recommend for small children or dogs.

Steep incline up. Amazing views make it worth the climb. Lots of wildflowers at the top. Easy to access the trailhead.

It was a work out to get to the top but it was worth it! We got to the parking lot at 6am and only 3 other cars were parked. We never saw anyone going up the trail but going down we ran into quite a few people.

6.0 miles from the parking lot to summit and back not the 4.6 like all trails says. Also recorded 3200ft elevation instead of 2500. Overall a great hike though and a must do on a clear day!

Hiked with my partner today. It was her first time. It is a bit muddy and crowded. The flowers at the top were nice. Overall, we had fun. I wouldn’t say it is difficult personally. Some people might find it so, due to some steep terrain and rocks.

This is a VERY hard hike. I thought myself a prepared hiker and I was sorely mistaken. I made it to the top, and of course back down, and it was beautiful and worth it. But prepare yourselves for this hike. Steep climbs, long stretches of steep incline, and quite a few rocks to traverse.

beautiful hike. one hell of a workout. so steep! but the flowers at the top are in bloom and even on a cloudy, rainy day like today there was plenty to look at. couldn't see the mountains because of the clouds, but it was still stunning. it looked like the rest of the world failed to load. I highly recommend this hike, but be prepared to sweat like crazy!

Sunday by 0830 the small trail head parking lot was full. Bathrooms are closed, there is some toilet paper left behind on the trail :( Flowers are starting to bloom at the top.

Great hike with stunning views. Prepare for a leg workout as the incline is fairly steep. There was a good variety of wildflowers and mushrooms along the trail. Definitely will do this one again.

Trails.com said ‘hard’. The sign at the bottom said ‘difficult’. Put them together and there you have it. 2.5-miles of 3000 ft elevation gain. Oh yeah, don’t forget the downhill! Basically stair stepper workout. I didn’t see the view due to cloud cover but what I did see was impressive. Well maintained trail but had some washout type areas. If your not in relatively good hiking shape, try something else.

This is one of the hardest hikes I’ve done! Steep trail for the most part, but serves as a GREAT workout. If you’re looking for a sweat and some beautiful, green rolling mountains... I highly recommend!!

Amazing trail. However if you are trying to practice social distancing it will be tough. came across another person about every 2.5 minutes and most were not concerned about making room. Including groups resting in the middle of the trail and runners flying by within inches. Epic trail. But I'd wait if you are concerned.

Very gnarly hike w/ limited views on the way up. The peak however is stunning

Definitely recommend and easy to practice social distancing. Let me just say “inclines, inclines, inclines” and just so I’m clear “inclines.” Great workout and great scenery (even with the timber patches). I slipped once on the way down and sporting some small scratches and bruise so recommend shoes with good traction and walking sticks.

This definitely isn’t for people that don’t hike often but through the rain drenched clothing and almost entirely vertical trail, the hike was totally worth getting to the Mazamas ledger even if there wasn’t much of a view. Everyone was considerate of social distancing as well. Bring hiking poles if you have bad knees like I do. The trek down is very straining on the knees.

Did this trail on 4/26/20. This is NOT for easy-moderate hikers. It is very steep and lots of loose gravel. The view would have been way better if they hadn't logged so much of the hills around the view point. But it was definitely rewarding!

really engaging home, you have to pay attention ok the out and back because of how steep the trail is in parts. gorgeous views at the top so bring lunch and pack it back out.

This trail is OPEN and it’s wide enough in most places that social distancing is easy to accomplish. It’s incredibly steep and I forgot my trekking poles so... that was fun! Hiking boots for traction and trekking poles will make this trail a comfortable walk. I saw some people with normal sneakers slip quite a bit but even with normal sneakers and NO trekking poles it’s totally doable.

Cool hike. Very steep but doable. There were plenty of opportunities to practice social distancing while hiking as well. Go outside
