If you enjoy crowded trails, lots of dogs, and a steep climb then this is a hike you will enjoy. The view is worth the aforementioned steep climb but with so many other fantastic trails in the area this is not a destination hike. Leash rule is commonly ignored. Locals love it because it is close to home but truthfully, although I have completed this hike a few times it is really just an o.k. hike.

Great 3 hour hike! Walked up to the west overlook, then over to the split for the west/east overlook and down. Beautiful day!

The whole mountain took me about 3.5 hours but I stopped a lot to look at the views from different points. It was about as I expected on West Overlook Trail the .8 mile hike that goes to the west over look on Crest Trail and Mountain Trail the 1 mile trail that lead to the half way mark on Crest Trail. They were both rocky and steep but Mountain Trail was a more rewarding hike with pretty good views near the top of the trail. Over all House Mountain was a good half day expedition with rewarding views at the top. I do recommend this trail for a quick but moderately challenging hike.

Wasn't expecting much from this hike but due to the steep grade it was harder than I expected. The views at the top were also much better than I expected as well though.

Beautiful hike! Did it alone to get a break from the city and it was a wonderful half day long escape.
