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.

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.

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

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!
