The beginning of the hike is easy, until you get to the turnoff point to go up the hill to Munra Point. At this point you will be hiking up a steep and rocky hill, and will need to use caution as injuries and fatalities have occurred. Expect a long and narrow path ahead until you reach the top. There might be a lot of times when you are using your hands to climb up the rugged trail. The view is amazing beyond belief and is worth the hike. This hike is for experienced hikers or thrill seekers looking for a challenge.

Was the most challenging hike to date! Did this one yesterday, starting at the John B Yeon Trailhead.

We entered the trail at about 10:45am and returned back to our start point at approximately 5:30pm. Long day of hiking! 7 hours. This included wait time of about 20 minutes to get up the scramble at the end, (waiting on people to come down one at a time). Then we also rested at the top for a good 30 minutes. Waited again to descend the scramble as people came up.

Honestly didn't realize the difficulty of the trail, but it's doable by anyone who loves a challenge.

Take good hiking shoes. Trekking poles are a good idea if you have them, for portions of the trail. I saw people wearing gloves for the rocky scramble in which you are literally climbing up a rock wall.

I would say going up truly isn't where the battle is. I also love the trails with steep elevations! It's the descent that I found difficult. Spent some time sliding down on my butt through some of it. Lol Little rough on the knees too as you get down the trail.

Overall, gorgeous hike!!!! Well worth the challenge! Just be safe.

This was by far the hardest hike I've done. I was pretty scared afterwards, lol. I definitely would not bring your dogs or kids. It's a pretty gnarly hike with lots of climbing and yes, scrambling. I'd definitely wait til it's more dry to do this one. Be careful, Hikers!

Awesome trail! Very fun scramble to a breathtaking view of the gorge. Will certainly return again someday.

This trail has some of the most breathtaking views I've encountered. However, it's not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to climb rocks and get a little confused in a couple spots.

Loved this one, out first hike in Oregon! The first mile parallels 89, noisy! Once you get climbing, take the straight up veer to the left for root scrambling fun. Up, up, up.... a bit of climbing involved with great views of the river. And the top views are awesome! Very rocky in parts, would advise to leave the younger kids at home. We had fun!

First part was easy until the turnoff and it was pretty steep climbing from there. Beautiful view from the top though.

Great hike. The views are worth it. Dogs are allowed, but I didn't pay close attention and now I understand why this app has a "dogs no" tag. Once almost at the top, there is a steep rocky wall that one has to ascend in order to get the finish. My dog definitely couldn't make it up this and it seemed unsafe to try to get him up there otherwise.
The other downside to the hike is that about 1/2 of it follows pretty closely to i-84 and I find the noise disturbance obnoxious. There was also some loud gun shot like noises going on that were very close and I think it might have been bird bombs or something from the dam.

Also for the wildflower enthusiasts: great assortment of wildflowers are visible including lomatium, collinsia, erythromium, plectritis, delphinium, olsynium, eriophyllum, plectritis, castelleja, sunthyris, lithophragma, fritillaria, mimulus, etc.

So challenging, but the view is definitely worth it. Save it for a clear day. Plenty of scrambling that would be quite dangerous when the rocks are wet, and difficult to get a good footing if the mud gets slippery. Great workout!
