Very quiet, barely any people. Lots of incline in trails then followed the main gravel road back down. Not a ton of views but still a good hike!

Wonderful hike. Definitely got us breathing during the uphill part but we took frequent breaks. Saw a deer in the forest and enjoyed the view of the lake.

At first I accidentally veered off Road 500, but came upon 36 Loop Trail, which I took towards Powder House, then looped back via Road 500. It was a good hike, nearly 5 miles round trip. Taking 36 loop was uphill most the time. Gained significant elevation but looping back towards the parking lot via Rd 500 was mostly downhill. No bathrooms FYI. The porta-potty was locked. ??? Idk why. Mostly shaded but the sun was out and no cloud in sight so it did heat up as the hours passed. Started at 10:30am and finished around 2pm. Not too many people at all and most of them had masks on when we passed, which is always nice.

That first half is mostly uphill and beautiful trails. The last part is quick on the road. Our dog loved it too!

Perfect hike for a Saturday! We’re a group of OSU students who wanted to get off campus and this was a great hike!! Only took about an hour, weather was beautiful, and we got to meet so many dogs!

This trail was great for a group of casual hikers, with some young teens. The first half is steadily uphill and a few people in our group stopped to rest and explore certain parts of the trail, it’s so beautiful. The second half is a relatively steep downhill which was nice to kind of jog down also. If you have any knee issues the second half, downhill section may be a little tough on your knees. Overall it is a super pretty hike and great for people who are avid hikers as well as people that may not hike as often.

This is my favorite Peavy Arboretum hike. Last went up this two months ago but wanted to review it as I have gone up this several times in the last year. It is just long enough to be some what challenging but short enough to be convenient. Great hiking choice during winter and fall as it never seems to be raining as much as it does in the valley. The lake is a nice view spot and the views to the west near the top is good but the single track wilderness trails are the best part. I highly recommend you follow the Powder House trail instead of the logging roads to keep it scenic and woodsy.
