Getting There

Parking on both sides of the gravel road, just past the first gate. This gate is closed and locked around dusk, so make sure to get back to your car in time. You can drive further up to park at the picnic area, but this is only recommend for those unable to hike. No camping allowed.

Option 1: Take the north I-5 exit (exit 30) and head north towards Crater Lake National Park on Hwy 62. At the second signal (about 1 mile from I-5) turn right on Delta Waters Rd. Roxy Ann Peak is straight ahead at this point. Stay on Delta Waters until it ends (about 1.8 mile) at Foothill Rd and turn right. Go 1.3 miles to East McAndrews Road, go under the bridge and turn right on the clover leaf to go east on McAndrews. Option 2: Take the south I-5 exit (exit 27) and head east on Barnett Rd. Stay on Barnett, pass the Rogue Valley Hospital, and at the signal at the intersection with Foothill Rd, turn left (about 2.0 miles from I-5). Go 2.0 miles to East McAndrews Road, turn left before the bridge onto the clover leaf that will take you east on McAndrews Road. Once you are on East McAndrews Rd heading east towards Roxy Ann Peak, go 1.6 miles to where McAndrews ends and Hillcrest continues up the hill. Go another 1.0 miles and turn left on Roxy Ann Rd.

Excellent hike when you want to get above the winter fog. Sunny and crisp! Can be slippery in the muddy spots - bring a good walking stick.

Trail was in GREAT shape. A LOT of traffic, though. I didn’t do the whole loop... sun was setting and it just turned daylight savings. View from the top was amazing... gave me goosebumps.

This is a great hike if your looking for a nice challenging hill to climb. The views are definitely rewarding. There are several ways down besides just going back down the steep hill. We went early in the summer and went an alternate way down. I liked the alternate because straight down the hill is tough on the knees but It was still pretty muddy the alternate way we took. So depending on the time of year, be prepared.

HikingGreat!

Got to the lower entrance gate, which was locked (about .2 of parking easily on the street at the bottom of the hill) at dawn (about 6 am). There was a posted sign saying closed at 9 pm, but no posted open sign (Google indicates the park at the top, Palmer Park, is open 8 am - 5 pm). Turned around and parked at the bottom of the hill and walked up the .2 mile to enter the trail (another car with two people did the same). Tried most of the trails - very pleasant walk - saw three people after walking 7.5 miles - on the way down (about 9:30 am - upper parking lots were filling up - a Sunday with beautiful weather - 73 degrees).

what a wonderful hike! A good amount of uphill- it would have been easier if I went straight ahead and rounded up but I wanted to have more uphill so I went right at the beginning. saw a fair amount of wildlife and some amazing views! Coming from Alaska, the heat definitely adds a different type of challenge to hikes. so bring plenty of water and sun screen for all those open areas! there where breaks with shade but I would say a fair amount was open. would recommend for people who enjoy a modest amount of hiking and are not too challenged by hills.

Great view of I think Mount Shasta! It’s not too hard but we took the back way up which is rocky and has switch backs. Very pretty.

Ok kick-your-booty trail if you want a good, quick workout. Steep. There are options for how difficult or easy you’d like your hiking experience to be. Also, come summer, watch out for rattlesnakes. They won’t attack unless they feel cornered or threatened.

We didn’t know about parking lot toward the top so parked outside of a lower gate and pedaled upwards. Eventually after counter clockwise travel on road we took the trail to the towers on the left. Nice and steep but was cool to be in the clouds. Will have to travel back to see view from the top. Lots of people, bikes, and dogs.

A pretty busy hiking spot, but there are lots of side trails to take. Lots of sun exposure. Kid friendly and a couple portapottys along the way. There are great views of the valley from all sides of this hike. Dog friendly too.

What a beautiful hike. We took the Manzanita going up and down the ponderosa trail. The hike had amazing views and trails. This was a beautiful way to spend an Easter Sunday while still maintaining social distancing.

Trail is pretty good. Be sure to scope the weather before you go both the day of and a couple of days before. Mud will slow you down and add at least 4lbs. to you. Otherwise it was a great trek, the view of the valley at the top is awesome!
