Always wanted to climb it. Way easier than I thought it would be when I was young. Glad I finally did it though

A great way to beat the crowds is to do this one at sunrise. I saw two other parties on the trail. This trail is pretty easy for a seasoned hiker, but challenging if you don't hike much. 1 hr 40 min car to car.

Great views for a nice little hike. However, the trail was packed with people.

Along with Saddle Mountain SW Peak. Low clouds and rain on this made for a slippery, viewless hike. Interesting trail.

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2015
My eight year old and I climbed Saddle Mountain on a Monday morning. The low clouds to the west broke open long enough to see the beach with the breakers crashing in. To the east was smoke from the fires, Hood was obscured but we glimpsed Ranier, St.Helens and Adams. On the way up we met one guy coming down, on our descent we met at least ten groups heading up. This was a fun hike , lots of adventure for an eight year old.

On my way to the coast with a couple hours to spare so I thought I'd exercise my legs a bit. Low level clouds spoiled any chance of seeing Mt. Hood or the ocean; just an ocean of clouds instead. Still an interesting and fun hike.

Cold and windy, but clear day. Sections of ice on the trail. Great views of Cascades.

Great climb, amazing views. Not many places (as far as I know) where you can see the ocean and so many Cascade volcanoes in the same panorama.

Fairley8Rewarding hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2013


One of my favorite hikes in Oregon. I have done this in winter conditions with several feet of snow at night and also several times during clear winter days. The views from the top give you a big volcano summit feel with only a short hike to earn the reward. Here's a photo from my last time there:

EastKingCrowded but very worthwhile  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2014


You will be hard pressed to find another mountain at 3200 feet with a better view in the northwest. This mountain reminds me of Cardigan and Monadnock in New Hampshire, crowded yet very worthwhile. BearQueen will probably heading back in September.

Date Climbed: May 21, 2013


Had plans to climb Hood today but the forecast was terrible so went to Saddle Mountain instead. Pouring rain and graupel meant I had the peak to myself. The flowers were blooming and the hike was enjoyable despite the complete absence of views. The chainlink on the trail was quite slippery but with good boots and hiking poles I had no problems.

A nice way to spend a few hours in the coast range. Nice views of the surrounding countryside!

WOLFrisingFirst Oregon Peak  Sucess!


Fall 2009

Climbed with Kelly on a roadtrip. This was a very green and interesting hike. The trees were amazing, and combination chain-link and dirt trail was new for me. The summit view was a confusing mix of peaks, ocean, and logged forest.
