Easy hike, close to Portland An easy hike from the parking lot to the best view - about 1/2 mile. The view looks over Panther lake and towards Raymond. Could be slippery in the winter as the viewing ledge has a slope to it. I found this a disappointing hike as there is no view from the summit which is an additional 1/2 mile from the best view. This is a good hike for small children as it is short and there is a good view within a 1/2 mile from the parking lot. As you can see from the map there is one spot where it is a little steep. There is a nicely placed Geocache on this hike which you can read about at: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8818a032-7ed1-4823-81f8-9c121fa91a5a
