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

Hiked on 01/14/18. Night hike.

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.

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.

Beautiful views at the top!!

This was definitely a hard hike but worth it. We did this one knowing we probably wouldn’t have a good view at the top but with over a foot of snow, it was still super fun to trek around the top! The 40mph winds were pretty sketch at times so we couldn’t take the scenic way.

A few things to note:
- Like others mentioned, we approached this trail head from the power line access down the road from the hot springs. Go the power line access until you hit a cross road - turn right and go down the hill. Once you see the hot springs buildings you should see the trailhead on the left.
- It’s not marked very well so we ended up being on the PCT most the time but you get to table mountain either way.
- Heartbreak is rough... but worth it! Especially with the snow right now! Just beautiful!
- We has two huge elk attempt to approach us on the trail which was frightening, no bears though!

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.

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

One of my favourites! Being in shape is a must for this one because it kicks your butt. Getting in that extra cardio in the gym to prep will have you thanking yourself ¼ of the way up! We went mid November so there was snow & slush for the last 15 minutes to the summit. Coming down that was a challenge & the view was non-existent since it was so foggy out but the viewpoint at ¾ was worth it!

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!

Really fun hike. Off the beaten path. I would not consider it family friendly as it was a bit steep and treacherous at points, especially this time of year. I do plan on returning in the spring with hopes of better visibility from the top.
