Beautiful hike through 100+ year old fire-regenerated forest. From the Trout Creek trailhead climb to Rooster Rock. There no water along this hike and very little flat ground for camping, though you could camp near Rooster Rock.

The trail is a little bit overgrown. I found the view at the top lacking, but the rock pinnacle was nice to see. I would have enjoyed the trail more if it went further up the mountain ridge.

Dog friendly trail! Very steep, especially for the last mile, but 110% worth it Beautiful views from the top.

Steady uphill for a good leg stretch; noticeably steeper for the last quarter mile. Easy but narrow trail that's generally under the trees so the shade is nice in warmer weather. Good views from the top and some boulders for more talented climbers. Easy to complete (up and back) in under three hours.

Amazing view at the top but a fairly difficult trail. I would rate it hard not moderate. It's very steep for the last mile.

Great hike, solid workout as well. Went during the week and only saw one other hiker on the trail. Fairly narrow trail, the brush is slightly overgrown on the trail at the beginning and some of the trail seems to have fallen a little probably to rain and erosion. Fairly steep and a good workout throughout the hike especially towards the very end, probably the last quarter mile it gets very steep but very rewarding as the view is great and it's completely quiet at the summit.

Great hike! I'd rate it moderate to difficult. Its harder than most moderates I've done. The end especially is very steep, but it's a great hike. We finished it in just under 4 hours on a clear day. Definitely worth the trek!

The trailhead is well marked on Highway 20 on the left side of the highway if you're coming from Cascadia/Sweethome. The trail is a manageable steady uphill climb that is heavily shaded, with abundant ferns and lovely views. The last 3/4 of a mile, the the trail becomes exceedingly steep, but is also manageable if you push yourself for the last stretch. It took us 3 hours, in and out, with a short snack break. It makes for an excellent 1/2day hike.

Pretty steep incline the whole way, definitely make sure you can handle that. Views at the top are gorgeous. Found a campsite close to the top, considering going back for backpacking in the future.

Nice hike. Constant uphill with some gradual and some steeper. Nice single track trail. Five or six trees down that we had to climb over. Trailhead starts at the creek but does not follow it. We went on to Rooster Rock but you'd need climbing tools to climb it. Nice clearing at the top with a great view of several mountains.

Great hike, I would recommend it for anyone whose in the area. If you feel you will have trouble hiking vertically for over an hour then don't do it. It took me about 3 hours round trip. Its a steep climb at the top but the view on Rooster Rock is spectacular. You get a clear shot of Mt Jefferson and sisters mountains. Very much worth it.
