Hike to the top of this coastal peak for terrific views over the Paciific. This tall peak on the northern Oregon coast has a great views out over the pacific from a viewpoint at the top. this route begins from the southern trailhead. There is another trailhead to the north.

Make sure is not raining or will be very very slippery

What a great trail! The breathtaking view at the top was well worth the climb. Overgrown at bottom. Muddy near the top. Only drawback is that I wish people would "leash" their pets! Most did but others did NOT! I'm not a pet hater but let's be courteous!!

Probably my favorite hike on the Oregon coast! I recorded using my Apple Watch and both ways said closer to 1.5 miles.. which was welcomed after a day of surfing!

Great hike though our view was blocked by an overcast day. Kids (7, 10, 11) loved it! The scramble up the rock pile at the end to the very top is not well marked and I saw plenty of people miss it - including us at first glance.

Amazing trail! Was muddy, rocky, and there were a lot of roots sticking out. Trekking poles were super helpful, but the view of the Pacific from the top was amazing!!

Was a really enjoyable and fulfilling challenge to do the whole mountain on both sides starting from the south, with a stop at Devil’s Cauldron just on the other side of 101 as the halfway point. 8.2 miles in total and some grueling legwork with beautiful and diverse views. Poles would be nice to have.

Gradual climb to the top of the mountain for a beautiful view of downtown Manzanita and the Pacific Ocean. The trail is mostly uneven with lots of exposed roots and small washouts, so heads down must of the way up the hill. View at the top made the sore ankles worth it. Great winter hike.

Nothing particularly noteworthy. Well established, forested trail with a steady climb to a underwhelming viewpoint.

Hiked it on 11/06/2019 and even with some clouds, it was a beautiful view! Even though it was a short hike, I’d definitely rate it as mid moderate and challenging towards the end. Hiking poles definitely helped when you climb some rocks to reach the summit

Incredible day to make this climb. No wind and crystal clear at the top. Climbed the face of the rock scramble at the end to reach the summit and that million-dollar view. WOW! Felt a little like a rock climber going up the face of the scramble wall. Be advised there is a back way up the spine which we found for the way down. A little less precarious, but not as much fun. The trail up was in great shape and dry all the way. Definitely a solid workout. Put this in the solid mid-moderate range. Probably not the best for small children unless they are very athletic and parents are very patient. Recommend doing the Cape Falcon hike first, as a way to loosen up for the climb to the top for this one.
