Good workout and definitely a challenge for a beginner. Great views up top. Pretty busy and kind of muddy near the top but not too bad. Careful coming down.

Great views at the top!

A beautiful, quiet snowshoe with the dog. Saw not a soul on the pine marten or June lake trail that morning. Still about 3 feet of snow at the lake, had to break my own trail from about .25 miles out. I was surprised there was not more foot traffic, but glad for it. Roads plowed / all asphalt getting to marble mountain.

Hiked on 03/30/18 and it was the first of 3 hikes that day. I also included the small spur that goes out to the view point on the east side of the mountain. If you do this too, the trail is in much better condition if you stay to the right as you descend. This goes down to a pretty steep cliff and the view of the valley is good. Wind mountain is speaking to you, the question is are you listening? Please pack out your toilet paper waste, sunflower seed hulls, dog poop bags and orange peels. I saw all of this garbage on my hike today.

We were the only people at the bottom. Complete solitude and serenity with amazing views of the mountain. Logs from the blast still float along the edges of Spirit Lake. While the hike is steep its only a mile down and a mile up. Take down some lunch and enjoy the beauty.

awesome hike! definitely would do it again

Easy and short hike up to the top, but surprised more people haven’t talked about the heights! I’ve hiked well over 30 trails in the Oregon/Washington area, and this is one of the few that actually made me nervous on my way to the top! There are guard rails, but it’s just wide open to the side of the rock as you ascend. Worth it for the views at the top!

Great walk! The gorge winds made it an epic climb up the switchbacks. Totally worth going to the top.

This trail had some amazing views at the top. The elevation gain is about 1300 ft in 1.4 miles but the struggle is worth it. It is also pretty busy on the weekends but a perfect place for a little picnic on the summit.

One of the best hikes in the gorge. Uphill but easy.

Awesome views! The top is really not that great compare to the trek up the mountain! Try to go on any other day except for a weekend. This trail is highly trafficked.

Good workout. Great views. I did this during the summertime and it was breathtaking.

Not too difficult with big reward at the top!

I called this morning and the trail is open again.

Accurate rating, as Moderate. Incline the whole way, but is a relatively quick ascent. Decent workout for a short time. Super rainy, and windy. No visibility at the top today. Eager to return on a clear sunny day. Beautiful trail, surrounded by tall pines.

Great views! Trail is reopen for hiking. Rock isn't open for climbing though.

Not kid friendly; but well worth the steep, heart pounding trip up. Feels otherworldly at the top, with fog and wind, almost like a microclimate. Lightly traveled so it feels remote and quiet, except for the winds at the top. It’s easy to see why native tribes considered this a spiritual place. Trail is narrow and rugged for the most part, but easy to navigate. Wish there were more viewpoints, but overall a great hike I’d definitely do again, maybe next time in clearer weather.

it was very interesting to see the two diffe ent forests. Grandson loved it

Don't take the trail at the parking area! You'll wind up climbing the mountain instead of hiking. Follow the road down a ways and the trailhead starts there. Beautiful views at the top and along the way.

It was a bit muddy, and very windy at the top but we we're lucky that the clouds broke so we could take in some of the view!

***CLOSED*** This trail is currently closed due to damage caused by a fallen rock.

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

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

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

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.
