This is a 5 mi trail right off of Hwy 6. It's 2.5 mi up Lookout Mt and while all of the reviews say it is steep and difficult, I actually found it fairly easy and a very pleasant hike with excellent views at the top. It took me just under an hour to get to the top, at a pretty easy pace and then 30 mins to get down. Great fun hike!

Lots of variety and lovely views. Love this hike with the pup! We often see deer in the evenings. There are rattle snakes and ticks, so keep an eye out and wear repellent - for the ticks...sadly, no reliable snake repellent available ;)!

Either it dint seem like 7 miles or I didnt do the whole trail. Parked at the bottom of the trail of 6th and walked toward the tree line. Was pretty steep at times, had a couple set of switchbacks which winded me quite a bit. Gorgeous views. Went all the way up to Windy Saddle then turned around. The map at the top states its 2.5 miles from 6th to their so I have it as a 5 mile round trip. Took me about an hr and 40 minutes to go up the trail and about 45 minutes to go down.
