This trail is absolutely gorgeous. The first three miles are an uphill battle with amazing trees and views to ease the burn, and the last two miles to the butte are basically a switchback with beautiful wildflower and manzanitas.

great all day adventure. ..I did run into two black bears...

This trail was amazing! Definitely some inclines but totally doable. The Meadows caught pockets of chilly air to dip in and out of. My favorite part was how much the scenery changed from grassy Meadows to old growth trees and wildflowers. Took 3 hours up and 2.5 back. This home is more like 11 miles total. Keep heading up and you will not be disappointed!

Alltrails should NOT call this a 5.2-miler, as there's no way to get picked up from the top of the butte (unless you have a philanthropic friend with a helicopter!). This is a 10-mile trail, out and back. Make it to the butte though! The views are epic-- you can see all the wonder of the rogue valley.

Make sure you bring your trekkin poles, plenty of water, and a good snack for the top!

Hiked this trail 3-30-2014 in the snow. It was amazing. There were times we trudged through snow that was over a foot deep. Some of the time it was snowing. Great rewards at the top with wonderful views. Also hiked this on 7-9-2014 and 5-30-2015.

Great hike! It's steep - took 3 hours (slow pace) to hike 5.2 miles up and 2 1/2 to get down. Once you get to the top there are some boulders to climb, this is where you get to see the views - which are so worth it!!! Pack a lunch and a lot of water. Had my French bulldog with me and he enjoyed the hike too! Boulders were a little challenging for him but he made it too.
