The views were an incredible payoff. The trailhead is about a mile further than the visitor center. If you take your time, most level hikers can complete without extra effort. This was a great hike for my family with age 6 through 42 year olds.

Rough hike but amazing views at the summit, birds will fly to your hand if you have food! Does get a little sketchy at the top when you pull yourself up with ropes but other than that its just a good workout!

This hike was most definitely a thigh burner! In the short length of the trail, you gain about a half a mile in elevation and your thighs and calves will definitely scream at you to stop going.

Once, you get past the steepness, the view is definitely worth it! If you are afraid of heights beware because you will at points be hiking on a ridge with deadly drops in either side. Once your cross the short ridge, their is a steep and slippery scramble to reach the rope that will lead you to the peak. Do to the lack of traction on our shoes, we chose to sit on a spot on the scramble and slide down on our butts- one wrong move is death. The other side of the scramble is a knife edge that drops down to a deadly fall.

I would definitely try to summit to the peak with the right type of shoes (I was wearing 4year old Nike free runs) next time!

Fun little path in the Klahowya Campground. access to the river will extend your hike and challenge your ankles, but it's much more fun.

Very fun trail, we went on a foggy day so couldn't see great views but still well worth it.

Fun! Steep hike, lots of mountain goats so we couldn't go all the way to the summit, but if you're willing to do some climbing the summit is well worth it.
