Great trail. It's all up with great views and all down till you get to the parking lot. Trail is in really good shape. It get's sketchy in a couple places but just take your time and you'll be fine. Their is no water at the top so keep that in mind. This trail is a good warm up for anything big you wanna do in the year.
Nice weather, mid 60s with an occasional light breeze and scattered clouds. Good trail, all up going in, down coming back. Definitely was glad I brought my trekking poles.
Great workout, big climb and relentless up hill on the way in. Need to watch footing and speed on the way back down as it is quite steep in a few places as there is some loose rock and dirt. Only one issue, the day I went was a bit warmer ~85 and there were a lot of flying bugs at the top, I mean A LOT. So I couldn't stay and enjoy the amazing view as long as I wanted to.
This is a great, strenuous hike with a very rewarding view of the surrounding mountains, Bumping Lake, and Mount Rainier. take plenty of water.
Quite the strenuous climb. Pretty much up hill all the way to the top. We also clocked it at 3.6 miles out and the same back for a total 7.2 mile hike. The view from up there is great and well worth the effort.
Good climb amazing views
Such beautiful views, definitely worth the steep climb
Great views but difficult climb! Uphill climb the whole time. Highly recommended.
