Great hike,moderate most of the hike but strenuous towards the last .25 miles. A good 5 hour round trip. Finally when you crawl to the top you are not the only ones there, the Gondola riders are there looking down at you. Will do it again

The trail would be challenging for a beginner, but turned out to be a perfect moderate difficulty trail. Follow the signs for vista off of rattlesnake trail for a beautiful view of Lake Dunmore and Silver Lake. Great hike!

You can actually hike in a big loop about 3 miles in this natural area. Wonderful trail in early fall, very secluded and quiet with mushrooms and wildflowers galore​.

A nice relatively quick hike. Starts out pretty flat with a couple of small stream crossings(but you don't have to get your feet wet), then gets steeper approaching the Cascades. Worth the 50 foot detour to take a look around there. That's roughly the halfway point. Keep going up to the peak. As others have said, there's no view from the peak, but the marked overlook just below the peak has a really good view to the southwest(I think, didn't actually check). It's also a nice snowshoe trail in the winter.
