    I have done this hike twice, and both times it was dark and foggy. I couldn't see the view from the top, but the trail, forest, and flowers themselves are enough to make this hike well worth it. I recommend arranging transportation so that you can start at one end (near Manzanita) and end at the other (near the Devil's Cauldron turnout). Plan to be wet!

    Wonderful little hike, takes under 2 hours (round trip) and the reward is an incredible view of the Oregon Coast. I'm told that during February/March you can sometimes spot the Grey Whales migrating north for the summer. We had a nice sunny day in January and you could see for miles. Great short hike when visiting the Oregon Coast for a weekend.

    This was a scenic hike. We saw the trail sign right off 101, just south of Oswald State Park, and drove up the rocky road to the trail head. At the trail head we couldn't figure out if we should take the wide access road up or the small trail that seemed to go back down to the road. Despite my wife's insistance that we take the trail, I thought the wide looking road with the gate would be the right way to go. I was wrong, the access road was steep, rough, and not very enjoyable. My wife let me know that clearly. We eventually crossed path with the trail and we saw some others hikers who guided us on the trail up to the mountain. What a view! Well worth the short climb. On the way down we took the normal trail with the switchbacks, which was much more enjoyable!

    This is a great hike on the Oregon coast. It is just a few mile past Oswald west park on the 101. This must be one of the best views on the coast. You could see down the coast line for days. Great vegatation on the trail.

    This is a logging road that is a rather unrelenting steep, graveled climb. Due to the size of the crushed basalt rocks (1-3" diam) and our lack of climbing skills, we half pushed, half rode the bikes to the saddle. Having hiked to the summit previously, we decided that the hike was much more fun and rewarding than the bike ride. The downhill ride was ok, but not very interesting.

    Short Hike but nice and steep. View at top is wonderful on a clear day.

    Absolutely stunner of a view from the top, although it is a bit of a scramble to get there at the end and kids will need to be watched. If you go in late April the top is covered with pink erythroniums (aka dog's tooth lilies, avalanche lilies, etc.). Gorgeous.

    This trailhead may be tough to find as it is on a dirt road off Hwy 101, but the view from the top of the mountain is one of the best in all of the Oregon Coast. The trail itself does not go all the way to the top. You will have to scramble over some rocks to get to the top where you can rest perched 2000 ft over the beaches.
