Very crowded but prime huckleberry picking.

sooooo beautiful!

If you want to take out of town visitors on an easy but drop dead gorgeous hike, this is the one!

August is probably the best time of year, as the wildflowers are amazing. But any time is great if the you have halfway clear weather and mountain is 'out'.

Did this hike recently with friends on Labor Day, and had only a peek-a-boo view of Rainier, and the wildflowers were just about done... But as always this was a fun day.

If you go, a clockwise route is best for views... Have fun!

Loved it. Very gradual climb. The views are unbelievable.

Beautiful views but this is not an easy trail. First half mile or so is fairly steep. Then a few long gradual uphill portions. Views of lake and mountains are great. Very clear day and even got a peek at Mt. Adams.

always a great hike

This trail is not easy. The incline is very intense. I would call this hike moderate. I'm not a very avid hiker... yet... but it seemed difficult for more than just me. It is, however, definitely worth it. The view at the top and around the corner was absolutely stunning.

absolutely stunning. Even though it was foggy, it was beautiful. We went at the height of wildflower season. Incredible.

fun hike with the family

Great hike! I took the gondola up and hiked down. I am very glad I did! If I had hiked up it likely would have been too much for me. However, riding the gondola up, seeing the impressive view of Mt. Rainier, having lunch and then hiking down made for a perfect day. The trail down is narrow and sometimes confusing so make sure to have a map of the trail with you or download the Crystal Mtn ap. The terrain can be difficult as there are a lot of exposed tree roots and rocks on the trail. It is definitely a work out so make sure you have water and food along the trail. Definitely something to experience.

Mt Rainer was clouded in but a great hike . dropped down too dewey lake nice addition .

It's not hard hiking (more of a stroll)--but if you have kids there is nothing better!! It's always well kept up, wide, the path goers are all really friendly, and it is gorgeous!
