The hike starts at the parking lot and the trail head is clearly marked, in a couple hundred yards you will begin your ascent to the top of Mount Si. The trail is well-maintained and dog-friendly, but be aware that there have been reports of bear spottings on the trail (although not very often). Most of the hike is under the shade of the trees which makes it a good hike even in the heat of summer. The trail ends on a rocky surface known as the Haystack, which can be very slippery when wet. You'll need some climbing experience if you plan to get to the top of the haystack.
Hiked up through and above the clouds to a "surprisingly good view" as stated by a descending hiker as we neared the top. Cascade peaks above the clouds. Strenuous, terrific hike.
I used to do this trail all the time, but haven't been up there for about 14 years. I forgot how pretty it is up there! It's a great hike that is shaded (great for scorching hot days) and it's a quick, great workout.
Very pretty but got a little too difficult for me near the top. Would go again.
This is a great trail. I went late in the afternoon which meant i avoided the crowds. The parking lot was pretty full when i arrived so i could imagine this being a popular trail. I personally would avoid this trail mid day just to avoid the people. I hiked/ scrambled to the summit and did a trail run down. Very easy to navigate until the top. Trail was not obvious at the rocks and i ended up scrambling up some rock to reach the summit. After looking at the map when i got back to the car i realized that the trail looped around the rock. This trail is great for conditioning and i will be back.
Awesome trail! Very challenging. Great workout!
Great hike and the views were great!
Good hike with a good friend. A little painful on the way down. I'd do it again though
Super great yet super hard
Up and down in under 3 hours. Top completely covered in clouds. Great hike, trail very well maintained. Did part of the scramble but then reconsidered for another day.
Amazing views from the top of the mountain. You can see Mt Rainier too. The almost 90 degree climb from the top to the summit was fun. The hike is moderate to the end of the trail with gradual uphill and well paved trail. Its hard to get to the summit as it has scary climb. Got to the peak within 2 hours and going down was a little over 1 hour.
My first time hiking Mt. Si. Really rewarding and hard to get on top! Really hot aroung 3 pm at the very top, but amazing AMAZING views.
Great hike to do with friends. Hike, talk, hike, talk. Spectacular at the top. Went on a Sunday and just a few hikers.
