Steady incline but not hard. Views are fine but would not be my go to in the Gorge

Lots of bridges and great waterfall views. Well maintained. Very popular trail. Many hikers with dogs.

Slightly taxing on leisure explorers yet had spectacular views once the overlook was reached. Narrow switchbacks with wide shoulders for photo opportunities or resting provided. Great for canine companions as well as children!
Note: Part of the guard rail damaged with other areas feeling loose.

My go to when I don’t have much time. Always breathtaking going up the switchbacks

Great trail. Beautiful waterfall and stream system partway up the trail, which is definitely worth a few minutes pause. Quite a burner going up. Trail winds up the mountain between some major (and beautiful) rock formations. There are a couple great spots for a view prior to reaching the summit, but there's not much in the way of a vista once you're up top. Pretty easy coming back down once you make it to the equestrian trail. Be forewarned, though -- it's a mud fest right now, which adds an extra challenge.

I loved this small hike. Such a big reward and it was clearly marked, luckily the road wasn’t closed.

Great hike, great views, saw people making the hike from older (70s) to young children. Great family hike. Awesome views.

My wife and I hiked this trail twice this summer and just finished our 3rd time 30 December 2017. Nice trail, beautiful views, old native spirit quest site on top. Totally cool place to visit.

Did this hike on December 30th which was perfect. There was not large crowds and you had time to relax at the top. Definitely would check it out.

Wouldn’t really consider this a hike, but more of a climb up the side of a monolith using stairs and a rough path. We did this climb during the eagle creek fire when the rest of the gorge wasn’t accessible. Even with the smoke the views are incredible. Worth the detour and climb up for sure.

Was muddy at the start and at the summit today. But beautiful views!!

Beautiful views at the top!!

Love this hike. I go when I want a good workout but I always leave with so much more...

No snow at the top, a little bit muddy but not too slick! Incredible views

Pretty views even on a rainy day.

I loved this little hike! The rewards were insane for the effort. It's all switch backs but the incline is actually pretty easy. The views were stunning. I went Dec 1 and it was a little cloudy with overcast but made for some stunning, moody pictures.

A beautiful hime on a beautiful day—46 degrees and somewhat overcast and no rain.

Hiked on 11/28/17. Did the loop but took Don’s Cutoff on our descent. It rained the whole time, but who cares when you’re prepared for it.

Great switchback hike with forest mountain and river views what else would you want in a hike?

This was a great moderate hike that is a good indicator to see where your endurance is at. It’s a quick hike with a phenomenal view overlooking the water & town below. A little slippery at parts but overall a great hike to take a “new to hiking” individual to get a great workout in!
