did this one twice. take a good car with good tires to get to the head.
poped a tire on my way down.

Did this in the fall. Didn’t do the scramble because I have no rock climbing background. The switchbacks heading up to the rock are pretty steep. Great workout. Peaceful hike.

Great hike in and out with a lot of nice views and different terrain variations. Also a good distance for a day hike.

The phenomenal view of the Rogue Valley- to the North & Mt. Shasta- to the south, make the hike, well worth it! I consider myself to be in good physical shape and it made me stop for a breath once or twice- definitely a calorie burner and lung expander

There was some nice terrain variations and great views.

I loved this trail! Although the summer may have been a better time, the hike is worth it just for the view!

Awesome trail!

If you're planning on hiking Pilot Rock, do yourself a favor and take this route. It's much longer and more worthwhile than starting at the PR Trailhead - which is only 2 miles round trip.

Nice hike. Beautiful view from on top of Pilot.

Must for visiting or living in Ashland. My 8.5 year old accompanied me for this more challenging hike to pilot rock.
Loved every minute of it and saw snow still melting off the mountains.

Not a bad hike to the rock. Relatively easy scramble to the top (a little girl was doing it). 360 view on a clear day of Shasta, McLaughlin, Ashland, and the region.
