Nice rainy Sunday hike with family. Medium traffic, lots of dogs and friendly folks. The first stretch is a bit of a climb. Absolutely beautiful.

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.

Hiked on 01/14/18. Night hike.

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.

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.

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

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!

Pretty views even on a rainy day.

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.

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.

I love this hike! We took the Hardy way up and the original Hamilton trail back down for a 7.77 loop. If def go back and do more exploring on the Hardy Ridge side of the mountain.

Despite all the rain, the trail was very manageable with only a few big puddles and slippery spots. The views at the saddle were great despite the very low clouds and wind.

Will come back in the dry season so i can have a picnic up top!

hiking boots strongly recommended when it's wet out. trail is well maintained; it's worth checking out the side trails for better views of the gorge.
