You can add four miles to hike and start at the bottom where the road is closed. Don’t waste your time. Most is through burned area. Much better options around.

We were fogged in and didn't get much of a view, but when the fog cleared a bit it was beautiful. Would love to go there again on a clear day.

I rode from camp shepherd down white river trail up palisades to the ranger creek trail and back to camp shepherd. The first mile of switchbacks on 1198 you gotta hike a bike and it’s pretty grueling, but once you get onto the ridge it’s amazing single track climbing all the way up to the top where it meets ranger creek. Was an amazing descent, 14 miles and 5000ft of vertical. I think next time I’ll take the Dalles trail up, cut the climbing time down to get straight to the fun! Also if your taking pallisades down it’s amazing till the hike a bike section and could be pretty annoying after a long climb and descent to than have to hike a bike. If you wanna ride pallisades down id recommend shuttling it.

Did a beautiful, but cold sunrise hike to First and Second Burroughs on 8/25/18. It was WAY too windy and cold to continue to Third Burroughs. I’ll definitely have to make it the next time :)

Wanted to do this one again before October, but sadly the trail is closed until May 2019. Guess I’ll have to wait ‘til then...

Hiked on September 14th, started from Parking lot at Sunrise. Started hiking around 9am, cold with light snow . Hiked to the 3rd mountain, which had much more snow, even lost the trail a couple times. Very peaceful and quiet with a beautiful view of glaciers. Not tough hiking at all, dress warm as the weather has changed on the Mountain. Total round trip with a lunch break on 2nd mountain (30 minutes) and several stops to take pictures was about 4hrs.

Love this trail for jogging with my kids who bike while I run. My daughter doesn't like pedaling up hills - she's fine with this trail as it is flat plus I get my Mojo seeing the Mountain. You'll be able to see and hear the rushing water of Carbon River along a portion of the trail.

The very beginning 15 minuets where the toughest as we were also carrying heavy overnight backpacks. But the rest of the trail was very easy and beautiful.

Great loop to trail run. All of the hard elevation gain is in the first 4 miles or so. It’s a little more gradual for a mile after that, then it’s all downhill. Beautiful views of Mt. Rainier on a sunny day. Get an early start because there is not a lot of parking.

trail is off to the left upon arrival. Great trail, well maintained and very beautiful. kid friendly

Really great loop and not too difficult. Spectacular views all around. You will see people on the trail, however we started around 10am on a weekday and it wasn’t too bad. Weekends recommend going early

We were driving back from the Gorge on Labor Day weekend. We wanted to take advantage of the holiday and do a "less strenuous" hike as we had a long weekend. This was perfect. The views are unbelievable and you get a wide variety of forest, mountains, lakes, huckleberry patches, and wildlife. Other hikers were able to spot a bear. The path was fairly easy going and there was not any need for advanced hiking equipment. The elevation was roughly 600 feet through the loop. We hiked with another couple and took the clockwise approach which yielded stunning views of Dewey Lake and Mount Ranier. Next time we will try the counter-clockwise route. Be sure to check out Wapiti Wollie on the way out...

Easy and flat, great for my young kids. we parked further away than necessary, lesson learned as it was still quite a hike to the first river access. Fun watching all the fly fisherman and their catches. Our kids loved the cold river and so did our Lab.

Nice hike. Beautiful views on a clear day. Not crowded. Only downside is that you can see the road far below. I’d do it again.

Easy walk but no waterfall at all. Wait for rainy season.

Loved this hike. Climbed all three Burroughs, and the third is worth the push. Don’t be deceived by the sign that says Burroughs Mountains Trail near the third Burrough path. I made the mistake of following it for 3/4 of a mile down. I then had to climb back out to get on the correct path. Just keep going up the next hill. I saw a mountain goat on my way up to the third Burrough. Epic views, and yes, feels like you can touch the glaciers.

Lots of FUN, Bring a flashlight!

At a ranger's recommendation, did this clockwise for great views the whole way up. Perfect weather & clear skiesmeant it was definitely worth going to the 3rd Burroughs and spending some time enjoying the glacier views.

Gorgeous views!! Did this with my senior mom & 2 kids under 12. Not super challenging for anyone in the group, perfect for a family hike.

Did a trip on Friday & views are simply unbelievable.
The day we went here, it was partly cloudy & as such, we had to exercise patience for unobstructed view of summit. Just one tip, plan to reach 1/2/3 peak before or around noon. Since this trail is from East side of Mt. Rainier, after 2pm or so, the sun goes to other side of summit. Bit steep for 3rd peak, but the views are totally worth it.

I did a hike up to Burroughs 2 and rested for 45 minutes taking in the unobstructed view of this beautiful mountain! Totally surreal! I’m a little heavy but am a regular walker so in order for me to lose weight I chose this hike for results and it paid off! As I sat and snacked I was looking at the third Burroughs and wanting to hike it but was worried about running out of gas. I did this hike taking my time resting 15 seconds every 60 steps
I started out at 7 am and by the time I reached the 2nd Burroughs (9:20 am) about 20 people had beat me but I succeeded but oh what an advantage you fit people have over us heavier folk! Hahaha round trip took me 5 1/2 hours not counting 45 minute lunch break! I’m coming back next weekend to eat lunch on the third Burroughs.

Not too tough, not too easy. Many different glances at Rainier: Even though you get about as close as you can, as you move away it's presence grows even larger and larger. She lures you in and then as you walk away begs you to return.

effort but not difficult, so don’t expect a challenge but it’s not a cakewalk either. incredibly scenic. views of mt. ranier, but go clockwise in order to not be walking away from it. bugs not as bad as the other reviewers seem to suggest. 5/5

This was so fun! It's a short hike up a trial that follows devils creek at the bottom of a canyon. There is a lovely waterfall on the outside back of the cave. If you want to climb the large rocks and hike behind the waterfall (we did), be very careful as it is very slippery. The inside of the cave is really cool, with devils creek running thru it. Stay on the path, don't walk in the water (no idea how deep it is, currents or rocks) and try not to touch anything due to microorganisms that live there. The whole hike including the cave was so beautiful.....bring your CAMERA!

amazingly beautiful hike with lots to stop and take in. took our 3.5 year old and he did great. lots of steep edges to be aware of.

Started the trail at sunrise today and loved every aching minute of the 7 hours it took us to finish the hike!

I'd recommend an early start if you want to avoid the crowds. We met maybe a handful of people on our way up to the Burroughs and didn't have any issues with parking at the trailhead. It's definitely chilly early in the morning though, so bring a jacket and wear layers.

I did the trail counterclockwise and loved watching the sun come up over the mountains, especially as we were heading up to the First Burrough. The climb up to the Second is steady but manageable (on our way down, we saw plenty of families with small children on the trail). And I will say that even though you'll see most people stopping at the Second Burroughs, definitely continue on to the Third! It's about 800 ft of steady climbing, but so worth it.

I would recommend that if you plan on doing the full 9-10 mile hike to bring water, sun protection, and maybe a snack. Although watch out for the ground squirrels! They know no fear when it comes to food.

One of the best hikes at this park. A lot of people stop at the second Burrow, but the most dramatic view is at the third. Enter clockwise if you want continuous views that blow your mind. Couldn’t stop to eat without chipmunks trying to nibble at your hands or looking in your backpack. Don’t feed wildlife!
