Did this hike a year ago at daybreak. Beautiful views.

This trail has just (April 2017) been improved, dramatically reducing mud and rocky sections. By comparison with it's past condition, it's almost a super-highway, with a wide path significantly smoothed out.

The total distance is 5 miles (round trip), with mileage markers every half-mile (although some are missing). Steep climb with dramatic views on the way up; view is actually better at some spots on the trail than at the top. Picnic table at the top.

Make sure you hike on a clear day. More often than not, the summit will be shrouded in fog and rain, eliminating the view.

Small gravel lot beside the main road, pull in and if you have a jeep or 4-wheel drive you can proceed through the cattle gate up to the trailhead parking.

The trail is very clearly worn / marked; it is lava rock, steep and challenging. Trail or hiking shoes definitely recommended as tennis shoes may leave you with sore feet due to the rocky nature of the trail. By buddy and I went through a Combat Bar and 3 liters of water, Gatorade each and we only did the 5 mile version (to wind turbines and back), not the full 10 miles. It's a simple out/back trail to do the full 10 or you can do whole trail one direction and have a 2nd car pre-parked at either lot to return to your start (5 miles).

Very enjoyable trail and terrific views, just be ready for the rocks and SUN (no shade).

Went there and it was closed

Maybe we're spoiled... it wasn't a bad hike we just expected a little more vantage points. 3.5/5
