This is a difficult out and back trail to Saddle Mountain in Saddle Mountain State Park.
Fantastic all year hike as weather permits. Views of Mt Hood and the ocean at the top on a clear day. Last approach to the second summit is steep and grated with wire fencing, be careful as this can be slick in the winter months.
Take 26 northwest to the saddle mountain turnoff. Next few miles are narrow but mostly paved. Parking can be crowded on weekends, but fine if you arrive early.
Fine hike for children, steep at the end. Be cautious with kids around the slick metal fence grate.
