HikingGreat!No shade

Did this on 9/19/20. It was a short, easy hike - just around two miles out and back starting from the crest viewpoint. It offers some beautiful views and I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. There were a lot of dry grass and plenty of dry flowers, so I am excited to check this place out in the Spring when the flowers are blooming. There are also a few very short side trails as well but some were closed.

Really cool views!! A horseshoe view of the winding road up, and some amazing panoramic views of the Gorge. However, it was EXTREMELY windy, so just be prepared. A quick short hike with great views all the way through

Super easy trail with little to no incline. Gorgeous views of the gorge! There were lots of wind surfers below which was cool to see. This was the perfect spot for a relaxing evening walk to watch the sunset.

Nice and easy. Was there on Aug 1, and no wildflowers left, but still a good spot. Very windy.

Such a beautiful hike and so many fabulous views! There is alot of poison oak along the treed portion of the hike, but not a big deal unless you stay in the middle. Not alot of trees, so bring sunscreen, and be prepared for lots of wind!

Such an underrated hike, Super easy and the view is gorgeous. Not too many bugs, but they're definitely around. Caught a glimpse of a deer grazing on our hike! The weather was just perfect.

This trail is super easy to hike. It was super windy at the top but made for an excellent experience! Looking out over th edge onto the Gorge from that high up with nothing but endless green and yellow brown rolling hills. This was my favorite hike next to Lost Lake Butte in Oregon! hiked 9/2019

Gorgeous views of the river and many flowers starting to bloom. Easy trail except for the wind was blowing a little hard today. The parking lot was almost full but once you get on the trail people are pretty spread out.
