I don't hike in the mountains, but I miss it so much. The weather was clear and temps in the low 70's. We walked through the dense forest about 45 minutes to the bench. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, fantastic,...More

Many trails to the top. It was a lovely day. Well maintained and the views were beautiful. Pet friendly and easy enough to climb.

This is one of the best panoramic views in all of Oregon. From the parking lot to the peak is 1.5 miles with elevation gain of 400 feet. The main trail spirals up to the peak (no switchbacks). There is no shade on the main...More

This place has a lot going for it. Great hiking trails across beautiful landscapes and wildflower shows in the spring. The road up to the site from the main roads is a lot of fun, especially if you are a "driver." The reason we won't...More
