great views of cascade mt./lake. definitely more of a challenge than easy rating would imply (especially last 1/4) which was a rocky hand climb). would recommend but NOT with a dog again.

Awesome views. Definitely on the harder side of easy. Good for a dog but there are a couple places where mid sized dogs may need a boost. Not good for little kids.
