Amazing morning hike with Buddy today

Good hike. Definitely some incline. Doesn’t feel like it’s only 800ft elevation feels like more but amazing view

Best view in southern Oregon. Today was my first time on the trail and it’s mind blowing. If you want to make the final rock climb up it is not for the faint of heart, but worth the view. Met a very nice gentleman at the very top and was told the best time to go up is mid summer. I’ll definitely be going back.

Count on 11.5 miles according to my phone. First three miles steep. No more snow left, except one patch. Gorgeous views..the tip top demands a rock scramble.

Hiked out to Grouse Gap because the trail to summit apparently requires bushwhacking. Simply not in the mood. Grouse Gap is a lovely place to hang and look out at Mt Shasta and eat a snack. Little over 4 miles to the shelter and then I just came back the same way. :)

Good hike. Definitely not the easiest hike but the view is totally worth it! 12 miles of mostly inclines with a few switchbacks.

absolutely gorgeous trail. wildflowers, mountain views. PCT runs through it. you can get all kinds of miles on this one. I logged in 5.27 Rock scrambling to get to top of Pilot Rock. loose rock, pretty dangerous. use caution. Overall though without full climb to the top such a gorgeous area to explore.

First mile east grade until the trail splits. Easy to see and well marked. Second mile is steep switchbacks, rocky and chossy at the top. You only really get good views if you climb up the rock. I tried to get up the steep crux on the left hand side but couldn’t. It is more than a scramble at that point, going into a grade 4 move. You can also choose to cut across some very suspicious and loose unstable rocks and go up the right hand side and climb this up to a high point. This allows great views of Shasta with still slightly dicey exposure for a routine hike, but definitely worth doing if you are careful. We took our dogs to the top of switchbacks and then each went up on our own without them. Climbing the rock itself too dangerous for dogs and kids. If you have two people (and no dogs) I think you could get up the steep crux section, so we may try that again at some point.

The view at the top was great. The trail itself has some tree fall that has not been cleared, so there is some maneuvering around. Some areas of the trail are not well marked and we walked past some turning points, so GPS and/or map skills are necessary.

Park on right trails on left so I was not on right trail for a long time

Beautiful hike through some great wooded settings and up to the top. Lots of great views at the top. There is lots of incline on the way up, a little steeper than the Table Rocks hikes, but still comparable difficulty wise. I love the Oredson Todd Woods. They remind me a little of Forest Park in Portland. But that section of the trail is very popular, so expect lots of people. But once you get onto White Rabbit and start going up you’ll find much more solitude.

Bring hiking poles if you want to make it to the top! Lots of snow that you have to trek through to get to the top. Download the app to help stay on the trail. It helped after Sheep Slide and finding the trail again through the snow patches. Beautiful at the top!!!! Worth it.

Snowy starting at mile 2, slushy In the snow fields near the top, and a little icy coming down through the trees. It is doable to make it to the summit, just make sure to bring some good winter/hiking boots.

only did about half, ice stopped us bring microspikes

We didn’t even make it to the trail head. 0.8 miles from it the snow was too deep for us to chance getting stuck on a 1 lane road & have to back up down hill.. snowing again this weekend guess we will wait another month or so.

One of the best hikes I’ve done in the Rogue Valley! You can see the entire valley from the top, Medford all the way to Mt. Ashland, amazing. Trail was a little tough to follow at some points and at the end it was knee deep snow and we kinda lost the trail. Made it to the top with a little improvising and it was well worth it. Highly recommend this hike took us about 4 hours and I agree with the other comments it’s closer to 10 miles than 9.
