Round Mountain can be completed as from either the north or south trailhead to the summit or can be done as a shuttle and push all the way through. The beautiful fields of corn lily really help to enhance the beauty and views of this hike. There are 360 degree views from the summit that stretch from the Cascades to Big Summit Prairie. The actual climb up the mountain totals about 1000 feet over 2 miles or so and while consistent, isn't too steep.
