Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2010


My girlfriend and I visited for the wildflowers and the views, and were not disappointed on either count. We were less thrilled with the third element of the equation... lots of other visitors. Next time we will visit on a weekday.

Date Climbed: May 30, 2010


Epic Fog, super windy and raining sideways. After standing on the summit, I hid behind a boulder below the summit in hopes of the storm to pass. No success, so no views... First one up in the morning, hung out for 30 minutes at the boulder seeing no people. Passed over 50 on the way down... Yikes... Muddy trail, cool rock formations.... Lots of great flowers...

This was an easy hike. Very busy trail with lots of people. There are a few trees across trail, but easy to get around. Lots of wire placed on trail to hold it together. Was only 4.5 miles round trip. Weather was sunny, windy and mild.

Part of a "natural" landscape. Felt more like climbing a broken down escalator at the mall, with guard rails at the summit. Worked up a good sweat going up.

Climbed with my Dad and Flanders. The stupid metal fenced-in rock they now have on the trail hurts my feet. It is really heinous now. Don't think I want to do this one again. They are probably doing it for erosion control but it really is ugly and hurts a pup's feet. Still, made it to the top and saw the ocean. Lots of dogs on the trail today. A weird boxer who was all hyper, a bunch of dachsunds who were ok, a cool black and white mutt like me who was cool too and a tan ridgeback who was neat. Got lots of petting too from people, especially a couple of young chicks in black leather. Weird crowd there and the trailhead smelled like Rainier Beer. Yuck.

We made the mistake of doing this one on a weekend, so it was a bit overcrowded, but that didn't detract too much from the great views.

Climbed this at sunset with beautiful yellows and oranges to the west and incredible blues and purples to the east with the moon rising above the first hump in the saddle.

This is a great place to go when the wildflowers peak. My favorite view on the Oregon Coast Range.

Made a foggy, soggy climb with my wife and 13 year old daughter. Lots of slugs! The clouds parted enough at the summit for a bit of a view. A fun, but wet day. Seafood in Seaside was the reward.

I have been up the reclusive beaut several times. Great slide photography destination. Hardly anyone visits compared with nearby Ecola and Tillamook Head. The OPRD sign on HWY 26 says closed and that is for the storm damaged facilities and downed trees. In july I counted 22 wildflower species plus some cool succulent plants, but there are probably dozens more I did not see. A must-hike.

Karl HelserGreat snowshoe trip...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 6, 2008

I always love this climb, although this is the first time I'd done it in the winter...on snowshoes. It started out with 4" of new powder at the trailhead. The temp was 28 deg (perfect). The trail hasn’t been cleaned since before the last few storms, which have been monsters...We spent a lot of time cleaning snow loaded branches above us so as not to be buried alive. Once we got out of the forest we had a short break in the clouds exposing the sun. Felt good...although once I reached the saddle the wind howled and ice pellets blew sideways depositing into deep snowdrifts. The summit was socked in offering no views. Was back to the truck in about an hour.

One of my first hikes after moving to Oregon. An easy trail leads to a sweet view of the coast. Just before the summit, there is a cool ridge on the right that leads to a quiet spot with trees. A good place to get away from the crowds.
