A straight and steady leg-burner of a hike with some nice payoff up-top.

Incredible views from the summit, well worth the strenuous hike. Hiking poles recommended, it is a steep climb the entire hike.

Left at the fork for an easier route, right for a tougher for one.

Great hike. Steep but worth the views. No wildflowers right now but lots of little snakes, lizards and ground squirrels.
Bring lots of water, good boots and hiking poles are recommended.
Need to be in shape for this hike as it is strenuous.

The wildflowers where in full force when my partner and I went up in June. One of my favorite hikes in the Portland Metro area. Heavily trafficked so be prepared to share your experience but well worth it.
