Be ready for a workout with this hike! (5 miles round trip) I knew it was going to be steep but it was a long exhausting haul to the top. We took a lot of breaks, and Hamilton wisely sat this one out.
Directions: Just an hour from Portland, take highway 26 towards the coast. Veer left on highway 6 towards Tillamook. About 25 miles in is the trailhead. No fees!
This is where the view would have been:
We picked a very cloudy cold day for this hike which was great to be in the mist, but we missed out on the fantastic view at the top.
