Fantastic hike! Great workout, beautiful views and the view at the top is worth the effort. I was hesitant to climb up the rocks at the end and make my way around the ridge, but with some encouragement from other hikers I decided to go for it and I’m so glad I did.

Great hike with worthwile views from the top! Seriously amazing. Not super hard but it’ll def increase your heart rate. GPS measures it closer to 11 miles. Well-maintained and easy to follow. When the trail forks in 3 different directions, go left!

Great workout and we had great weather. No wildlife spotted and views are limited to the open spaces. At the top, fabulous! The first third is strenuous due to gradient but the surface is great. Well marked path with options towards the top.
Lunch at the top is great.
We traveled to the trail head by RV- not recommended! The last 7 miles is gravely and narrow in places with logging trucks and a few hunters. Still a great day out.

Put this off a couple of months ago because of the heat as well as the fires decided to go out today and I was not disappointed it is an awesome Trail.. 10-13-18 ... too bad I can't post pictures at the moment lol

Amazing views at every mile!

simply fantastic!

One of my favorites. The views are amazing. You have wonderful views from Ashland and Medford. You can see the stunning Mt. Shasta and Pilot Rock, so amazing! It is hard, but totally worth it!! Don’t go after 4:00, because you will encounter totally darkness in the way back :). It takes like 4.30 hours to complete it both ways. Don’t forget to sign the book!

It would be a mistake to believe that this trail flattens out after the first 3 miles...it definitely does not do that. It's a tough 5 miles up. We had a smokey view but it was a really satisfying hike that got the legs burning all the way up! So disappointed in people when you see the amount of trash along this trail, definitely not the Oregon spirit to be so disrespectful toward our natural resources.

very lovely

Hike for good exercise and the views of the rock ledge at end of mountain are amazing! Once you get to the “peak” keep going because the views aren’t there they are past the peak on a trail that takes you to the over look. Great exercise for moderate hikers and spectacular views!

beautiful views and interesting pink trees. VERY steep!

awsome views of the valley!

Perfect for an afternoon hike!

Amazing

Good partial day hike, took about 2.5 hours to do the loop. Perfect to wear the dogs out and make sure I get a goodnight sleep as well. There were quite a few people but it was also Labor Day. The road there is mostly paved and gravel in some spots, any car could easily get out there tho. I think it would be perfect for kids as well, maybe plan a little more time tho.

Trail is easy to get to... no 4WD needed.. and well maintained.

Drove up to do this trail today and the road was closed due to the Hendrix Fire

Super secluded so you’ll probably have the trail to yourself. Totally worth the drive up the mountain to the trail head. Some seriously cool spots along this trail.

This trail was tough! It’s pretty much straight up the entire way. Beautiful trail, my dog loved it

It is a well maintained path with some great views of Ashland and surroundings. I recommend starting at the trailhead off Park Street. We started at the top trailhead and had uphill return.

Beautiful hike with nice even trails and loads of butterflies and wildflowers. We hiked in thinking the weather was fine and then a lightning storm came through. Not the safest place to be for that, but the dark and wild sky with the clearing at the lookout was surreal. I will definitely hike this again next time I'm in town.

Great trail. So much cooler than the valley. Lots of shade. Love being at the top lookout.

Trail was slightly overgrown, the amount bumblebees and flies was insane! Considering the whole valley is on fire to the west the smoke was minimal.

Beautiful meadows of sage, corn lillies and lupin, forests of evergreens and aspens, andcamazing views of shasta, mt ashland, pilot rock and mcloughlin in the last two miles to the peak. I call the top Cafe Wagner because it’s a great place for lunch.

I loved this trail. The first two to three miles are the hardest but then it smooths out a little just in time for the views. Finished by 10 am on what is supposed to be quite a hot day but there was plenty of shade. I was the first one on the trail this morning, so I ate most of the spider webs (so don’t be first if that bothers you). Great views the whole way up but nothing compares to the views at the top.

Wow. It’s as good as everyone has been saying on here. Definitely not easy. So much of it’s uphill. But the views are amazing. I did this and Crater Lake while I was in the area, and it was a perfect two day combination.

We enjoyed the views and variety of trees. The climb was a nice challenge with a smooth ground. It was easy to follow the signs even though there were many trails that crossed over the white rabbit trail. The trail was fairly well shaded which was nice. A nice. quick little hike, it took us 2 hours, 15 min.

Very limited parking on a very steep street.

it was very nice hike

Great hike! So beautiful and not crowded! The views of the taller peaks and valleys from the top are excellent.
