Good hike but my knees felt it on the initial descent.

A quick, but heart pumping hike! Good to fit in on your drive along the Gorge. Nothing really to see until you get to the top. Don't underestimate it like I did and wear Chacos! Going down it's too steep and lots of lose dirt and little rocks to slip on!

Fun little hike to stretch your legs on your drive through the gorge!

Trail was well maintained and the grade was more reasonable than I expected. Some riprap used to stabilize erosion on the trail can be tricky. The wind was extra strong in the Gorge during this hike. I was solo and concerned about my general lack of balance added with the wind, so I wasn't able to summit. I turned around about 30yds from the tippy top. Even at this distance I could tell the view was outstanding. Will definitely be back to try again on a less blustery day!

such an amazing trail! Felt like Lara Croft climbing over rocks and tree chunks. The worse part was probably the ticks....so many ticks
but definitely worth it!!

Steep, rocky and by times slippery, but oh so worth it! Be prepared for 1300f elevation in only 1.3m. The summit has an awesome 360 degrees view and especially a gorgeous view on the Columbia River Gorge. My dog and I really enjoyed this hike!

Worth it. Very steep and rocky. The history of the place is unsettling. A beautiful hand dug tunnel blasted in the 60s for the name of progress. Typical of the generation. What a wasted era.

Short and steep with some great views at the top. Lots of poison oak alongside the trails, but we didn't see another person on the trail the whole time (relatively early on a Monday morning in August). Several steep spots through loose rocks that makes for tough footing.

Just finished hiking this trail. Great short trail with a few parts that require some good hiking shoes to maintain grip. However the view from the top is breathtaking and worth every bit of the trail.

overall good experience for a part-time (vacation only) hiker like myself. i was the only one on trail maybe due to overcast weather. hiking poles would help if i had planned. parts of the steep trail are tricky with loose gravel, but i never slipped because i had good hiking boots and took my time to make sure steps were secure while taking plenty of photos. short section with loose rocks also tricky but can be navigated if you can see which trail to take,

the view was fantastic; and just a few others were on the trail. hiking through the rock patch that others have mentioned is difficult - but it's worth it.
