Hiked this trail today. It was really great to go from no-snow to real winter snow in a not-too-long distance, and nothing steep - did not need to wear spikes. Very enjoyable. Not crowded, but did not feel totally alone, which is re-assuring.

Hiked this the day after the "big" wind storm. We got about 1/4 mile past prospect and ran into a number of large trees uprooted and across the trail. Climbed over a few then decided to turn back. Only saw a handful of other people on the trail. It's a nice steady hike on a smooth trail.

It was difficult enough but it is wayyy too crowded. I like to go to the woods to get away from people.

Came back since I missed the summit last time. Unless you like seeing acres of twisted stumps and dead branches where the lumber industry has left its mark...or like radio towers...there really are MUCH better hikes along I-90.

Good hike. Went to east peak and turned around. Some awesome views when the fog started to burn off. There weren't many people on the way up and a bunch at the first look out and the rest of the way down. Part of the trail is new and it runs through where the logging project was. A nice log bench to sit on in the middle. If my uncle didn't want to stop and talk as much I would have pushed for the lake.

Awesome, well marked trail. One of the best marked trails I've been on yet. The beginning of the trip I could still hear freeway traffic but it cleared up when I got along the trails and became quite peaceful. Moderately traveled, didn't run into too many people along the ways just when I got back down towards my car. I didn't go the entire way to the lake because of time constraints, but I sure wish I could have. I didn't know it was 10 miles out AND 10 miles back, I thought it was 10 miles round trip. Beautiful, I would do it again and again and again.

Great hike, about an hour to the top, once you get up there there's 2 more points that you can hike up to. The second one is only about 10 more minutes I recommend going up a little bit higher the view is worth it. If you're hiking on a hot day, bring your bathing suit you'll want to jump into the lake afterwards, such a beautiful lake!
