This was a pretty simple two mile hike to the top. It was a beautiful view. quite dusty and dry. The trail is uphill the whole way but easy to follow. The peak is a parking lot which is always kind of a bummer, but I am glad I hiked rather than drove because there are some awesome, private scenic spots along the way. Not to mention hiking is always more rewarding.

This hike was amazing! We and my cousin hikes into moraine lake and stayed their Friday night, even though it was freezing at night, it was worth it. Than we woke up and started hiking at around 730! Very heavily trafficked trail and a very popular hike. We made it to the top and summited in 5 hours from the lake. It took us longer because we took a lot of breaks! The trail is easy to follow, and not too hard, you hike over a lot of rocks before making it to the ridge by lake and that part of difficult. That last mile up the ridge is REAALLY HARD! It's all worth it though, amazing views and beautiful scenery!

I started at the Cultus Lake trailhead for the Winopee Lake trail. Beautiful spots along the trail to jump into Cultus lake. Trail is dense forest and very dusty. I turned off of the Winopee lakes trial to go to Teddy Lakes. I did not track it but guess it was about 9 miles out and back. I highly recommend Teddy Lakes. Beautiful secluded lake. Train ends but about 300 feet east along the lake is a site all prepped for backpacking. Awesome swim!!!

Wow the view at the top is amazing. If I lived in the area, I would literally bring everyone I love up there so they can experience the magnitude of beauty that all of the surrounding mountains provide.

Fun challenging fantastic views! The last half mile of this hike poses some definite shortness of breath and steep grades just short of scrambling. Sharp lava rock can slice you open quite easily. The false summit and true summit offer splendid views of broken top bachelor spark lake morraine lake hells lake elk lake middle and north sister mount Jefferson mount hood Rainer and even Mount St. Helens on a clear day.
