Beautiful foggy hike. Lots of flowers and trees. Half of the hike is wooded and the other half is open field.

Trail is in very good condition. It does not follow the map exactly because of some changes due to blowdowns and restoration work. Still, it's easy to find the way to the top. Great views!

Great hike we did in about 3.5 hours and that was taking time to stop and take pictures. Not too many people out today. Beautiful flowers, but lots of bugs. You also have to pay $5 fee at the parking lot which I wasn’t aware of before going.

This was a fun trail, and overall a really good hike. It was pretty rainy, and there were a couple places on the trail that got a little slippery and muddy (and there wasn't much of a view at the top) but it was still beautiful out there!

What a beautiful view from the top . The Pacific to the West and the mountains to the East. Steady incline going up on soft ground. Still a little snow on the very top.

Tried to go today. I have a 2019 Ford Explore and had to turn around about 6 miles before the trail head due to the road. You can only make it to the top with a truck that has high suspension. I will be back in a month or so.

Absolute chaos on the road with cars stuck in the ditch, trucks sideways, and people almost sliding off the cliffs. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SNOW TIRES, HIGH-CLEARANCE, CHAINS AND A SHOVEL DO NOT COME UP HERE!!!! I helped dig multiple vehicles out when I was hiking up and watched some guy in a lifted Jeep almost back off a cliff before getting saved by his friends winch. Don’t underestimate this road.. it is one of the worst I have ever driven on in winter.
