Short but super steep, in less than a mile you go up 1000 feet in elevation, really tough cardio workout if you do it nonstop easy pace all the way to the top.

Loved it! Wish there was a better look out spot though. Definitely an intense hike. Great if you want something quicker but still a workout.

This was a really great hike and a really great work out. However I must say whoever rated this trail as easy or even moderate is out of their mind. This is really steep. We climbed Smith rock in Terrebone Oregon it was really difficult and this one is a lot more difficult.

I would not consider this Trail easy for kids! The loop idea is a stretch. We turned to take the trail down the backside and it was terrible. We survived, but it was difficult with stretches that were very steep. We were grateful when we ran into a frequent hiker who told us where to turn back to meet the main trail.

Good climb & quick hike, but not much of a view at the top.

This is an awesome hike with so many different trails of all levels that you may never do the same hike twice. We hike this Mt. every Sunday, and enjoy the view from the hidden vista as people hike behind us not even knowing we are there. We prefer the Goat trail going up from the Cal Magnusson side because it is less traveled and more serene. They just put in a new parking lot on the other side with restrooms, and there are a couple offshoots that take you away from the main gravel road up and give you more peace and quiet.

This is a great conditioning/fitness hike, but it is not for those looking for a leisurely stroll. Mt. Peak goes straight up about 1000' in a mile. There are no real views, but it's perfect if you're looking for a quick hike with elevation.
