Beautiful terrain various from dry to lush. I would say this is light moderate.

Beautiful easy hike with lush rivers and waterfalls. Takes approx. 35 minutes to make the loop. Some trails turn into streams and back to trails. Can be a little confusing to stick on the trail but it doesn't matter that much, it's not a large area to get lost in. Good for parents and kids.

My best gal pal and her two kids did this hike no problem last weekend 3/11 and the weather was absolutely perfect, the trail is beautiful but some very muddy spots I advise you to wear hiking boots.

Beautiful trail, today it was a quiet and peaceful day, almost no other people arround. We only met some fishermen, and a bunch of teenagers enjoying nature within their tents.

This was a breathtaking hike and views. Loved it all. Long but not too difficult.

This place is great for a quick hike in town and during the spring time! Amazing views of our rogue valley!

I haven't hiked the whole 30 miles of it but this is a great trail because there are so many other options to branch off of and cool places to see.

Great trail, I wouldn't go as far to say it's "Moderate". It wasn't a difficult hike. nice scenery and once I got up to council crest for the first time, the views were great I soaked them up for a couple of hours before I decided to hike back down.

Pretty easy hike, great little stream. when you take the turn up to Pittock Mansion be prepared for the incline. I've hiked this trail two times now. The first time I wasn't in the best shape so it was a nice burn. The second time I was in better shape so it wasn't as bad, but I powered up it and was out of breath by the time I got to the top because I was hiking up pretty quickly.

Nice easy hike. Bring the family. From the trail head and around the lake it is not as far as the map states. Pleasant walk if you have low experienced hikers if just want a nice stroll. Well maintained trail, lots of salamanders.

its a really nice trail for all ages with multiple ways to get there

Beautiful! Muddy, so bring three right shoes. No complaints from me on a sunny day!

Great trail for toddlers! The waterfall was huge and beautiful! The trail was muddy and wet.

This was an easy trail for my 6 yr old girl, my baby (11 months) took a nap the entire time on the baby carrier. we saw a lot of people working out, families, but no dogs allowed. very close to the towncenter mall, so we were able to quickly grab lunch afterwards
The summit doesn't have a clear view, but we definitely enjoyed it and we'll be back with the kids.

First time we hiked it there was none but us. The place is miraculous and a panacea for sure.
Now after returning several times we have found far too many others.



Absolutely perfect at sunset!

Popular for families!

Good views of the Valley

Popular with kiddos!

Beautiful! Watch for the "Hippo" rock!

I've hiked this several times! amazing views!

Absolutely love this hike! I've hiked it 4 times! great for kids, couples or solo! Nice letter box surprise at the top of Hobart bluff! Great views of Emigrant lake!

The grotto is beautiful!

Nice views, great for older kids to explore the geological offerings of the area!

Great family hike replete with cave and Bigfoot trap, great ending point at the peak after enjoying lunch and the views! I've hiked this 5 times...each time great...plus the lake is right around the corner for a swim after :)

I've summited several peaks and I won't do this one again...too hot in August (which is really the only time it's not snow packed) due to sun exposure and reflection! Typically smoky this time of year which creates difficulty breathing and seeing the views...a lot of scree at the peak, dangerous and crowded as there is only a cement platform where the lookout used to be...then of course the difficulty with finding the correct route out on the descent...so many have gotten lost and ended up on the PCT...Also a very steep trail in the open...Love Theilsen, Bailey and Union peaks! I recommend those instead!

Strenuous! Great views...we went in August...too hot! I recommend going in Spring or Fall!
