Went on 6/19 - Great hike. Uphill so you get a bit of a workout but the length of the hike is not too bad. Almost completely shaded. The payoff is awesome. On a clear day you can see Mt. Jefferson so well! Really enjoyed.

Great hike and a nice little work out! Views at the top are epic, recommend going on a clear day. Went on a weekday and it wasn’t too crowded which was nice

We started early on a Saturday morning and were the first to the top. The trail was in great condition. It is a steady climb, but not too tough. The view from the top is definitely worth the effort, especially the view east toward Mt Jefferson!

Beautiful trail, well worth it. Only 3 small logs were over the trail at the time of the review, easily passable.

Great trail. Will do again on a sunny day for the views. Easy to follow - probably lots of visitors on sunny weekends. Nice combo of uphill and flat. Couple of small trees blocking the path. Short scramble at the top. We went during a rain storm and it was still amazing. Spring hike was a good choice for native flower blooms. Parking only holds about 4 cars, roadside parking possible.

Uphill all the way. Gorgeous views and flowers. Looks like it would be a phenomenal fall hike.

Great trail with amazing views at the end. Trail is narrow but not difficult and a great work out. Parking is limited.

Good trail - nice path, pretty narrow, the incline is gradual making it a great workout and manageable to climb

May 9, 2020 Nice hike, good workout best time to go is early morning as it is very narrow and it gets busy and hard to let people pass by. Beautiful view from the top! Will definitely be doing it again. Clara R

The hike up was really good! Loved the view up top, definitely don’t try to take the shortcut to the top, very hard to get up it and it’s a straight drop on the other side. Took a 6 year old and a 4 year old! They did well! Would be hard if there were lots of people as trail is narrow and hard to let people pass

Absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to hike it again! Steep in some places, don’t go off the trail.

A little bit of mud but not too bad. We got there early and only saw someone else as we we getting back to the trailhead. It would be hard to share this trail with lots of people. The view from the top of Mt. Jefferson(?) is stunning.

No closure signs that we could see! Was a bit busier of a day and a bit harder to accommodate social distancing when passing other hikers. But what a BEAUTIFUL clear day for Stahlman! No snow on the trail and really only a couple branches in the way of the trail a few times! Definitely a bit tougher of a hike, just about 2.3 miles a steady incline the whole way. We made it up to the top in about 45 minutes with some trail running and quick hiking. Such a great hike!!

No closure signs, so it appears to be officially open? We didn’t see anyone else in the lot or on the trail, but it was overcast & rainy. 2.3 miles up a fairly steady incline to the top. Slightly strenuous if you’re not used to going almost straight up for an hour. Beautiful views at the top- Detroit Lake & Mt. Jefferson! It would’ve been a great place to eat lunch if the weather was nice.
