Everything is shut down but you can still park and walk up to the top. You walk a road cool views of the lava fields on the way up. Views of all the valley and cascades at the top. I can say I did it but nothing spectacular.

It offers a neat opportunity to hike around the top of a small volcanic fixture. The views are really good at the top.

Beautiful views from the top!

winter conditions w lots of snow from parking lot to top.

Almost had the place to ourself for the hike. Some slush and snow but enough bare road that microspikes would be annoying.
