HikingGreat!No shade

Decent views south of the Pueblo mountains and an OK view east towards Alvord lake. Some low growing pretty wildflowers. It was very windy when I was there so make sure to hold on to you hat! If you'd like to get a better idea of the trail you can see a video I made of it here: https://youtu.be/FdpO1I5whIM

Some decent views. Mostly interesting just to reach the top of Steens.

HikingGreat!

Super easy, but slid a bit coming down hiking in my Chacos while my dog was pulling me downhill. Lol! It’s always a beautiful view except for the equipment up top. Waited out the storm for about 40 minutes before I hiked to the summit with my dog Summit!!

First to Review

Mostly fun to stand on the top that high. The trail up is short & not that interesting. The top is a bit noisy with equipment and generators. But the views are great.
