Did the hike from the Hebo Lake CG. The trailhead is a little tricky to find... it's not near the fee area. Past that there's a "Camp Host" sign, then on the right (just before the Exit sign) you'll see a meadow and a hiker's kiosk where you can park. The trail is a narrow path on the left edge of the meadow, heading into the woods. This version is maybe 7-8 miles roundtrip, 1300-1500 ft gain?

Trail is in great shape and heads through some very pleasant forest, full of green growing things and wildlife... there's even nice little wooden signs with nature facts! There's some flat sections and random steep parts, but overall it's a steady moderate grade headed up the mountain. You have to cross 2 roads and there is an unsigned junction, but it's pretty easy to navigate - just keep heading 'straight' and you're fine. Near the top there's a downed tree but you can easily detour around it using the nearby road (you'll see).

I heard there's supposed to be a lot of wildflowers at the summit meadows, but that's not the case yet... some nice patches of lilies, at least. Still probably several weeks to go. A good number of (early) spring flowers on the way up though. The coast was fogged over and it was smoggy towards Portland, so didn't actually see much - definitely save this for a clear day.

Definitely on the easy side, but a phenomenal view if you catch it on a clear day.

Nice short hike (about 1.1 miles each way), with a very nice view at the top. Definitely not a moderate hike, I would categorize it as very easy.

My Family and I hike this every now and then. The hike is definitely worth the views! I agree that you should have someone pick you up at South lake or Hebo.

My wife and I have hiked this trail several times from Hebo Lake to South Lake. The Hebo Lake side is a Forested climb that will give you a good workout and reward you with stunning views of the ocean at the top. On a clear day you can see north all the way to Tillamook. The drop down the South Lake side is steep and full of switchbacks. I don't know how many more miles it is from the top down to South Lake but it is a tough one. If you plan to hike it one way have a friend pick you up at South Lake. If you want to do a round trip plan on camping at South Lake over night and bring your fishing licence and pole as the Trout fishing is wonderful. The trail can get brushy in places but is well defined. Enjoy, it is a hike well worth taking. We last hiked it in 2007.
