Sleeping Beauty is gorgeous. Well worth the effort needed to see the incredible views of nearby mountains.

Great hike. Last 7 miles is a gravel Road, had a lot of pot holes in it. You could still bring a car if need be. Hike was steep but worth it. Seeing 4 volcanos in one hike is pretty breathtaking.

It may be a short hike but it's all uphill to get there. went up on a very overcast morning first ones to the top with light rain. clouds covered Mount Adams had a good view of the Trout Lake area. watched an eagle soaring below us, Got some good pictures of a mountain goat about 75 yards below us. Can't wait to go back on a sunny day

Although it's a fairly short trail its relentlessly uphill. But the views at the top way outweigh the hike. Could see four mountains and I would think on a super clear day you could spot some more. Glad we stumbled upon this hike. So far favorite day/half day hike yet this summer. Do it if you can.

Wonderful view from the top makes the steady climb (relentless?) climb worth it. Passed only one other hiker during the round trip.

7-19-13 this was second trip up here, and i forgot how steep it was. I got a nice photo of the bees nest not far from the trail head on left about the size of a basket ball. It took 1hr up today, the views are incredible, could see three mt. but no hood, it was to hazy. No one at top which is always great. I jogged slowly most of way down 25 min.

Don't know how this can be considered a Stevenson hike as it's near Trout Lake, 40+ miles and over an hour from Stevenson. But the hike is a classic in the area with great views of the Mt Adams area. The top is the site of a now-dismantled fire lookout and the last stretch to the top includes a fabulous hand-built rock ramp. Look around at nearby craggy ridges for the mountain goats that live in the area. The trail is mainly a long series of switchbacks so it's not a casual saunter, but it's short enough that it's not too difficult either.
