Beautiful November day for the hike. Well maintained trail and easy to follow signs and paths. A couple steep drop offs at the top but still manageable for peeps afraid of heights. Rope portion is not treacherous, just a little slippery if you have shoes with bad traction. View from the top is unbeatable. Definitely the most rewarding hike at Lake Crescent.

Beautiful views and easy hike. I love the hike in terms of convenience. Less travel time and no hassles in terms of parking.

Cool experience but the last part up to the false summit is not for the faint of heart with the ropes. We did it first thing in the morning so luckily my wife’s slow descent didn’t really get in anyone’s way but I could totally see there being some bottlenecks during more peak times. Great views from the top but I do believe we passed a few people who we never saw at the top so the ropes might have scared them off.

Great quick, and relatively easy hike close to town. There were only a handful of us on the trail but I think that’s mostly because it’s Tuesday...it was pretty quiet once we started climbing which was nice. The last push to the top is tough but not impossible by any means. Views from the top were nice. Would definitely recommend if you don’t want to drive too far, or don’t have all day to hike.

Interesting walk through the food and craft Mecca of Seattle

What a surprise—2 mountain goats chowing down on the rocky cliff not far from the climbing face. On a nice day, this is a good choice for a hike close to Seattle. Sweeping views from the top but be prepared to hear I-90 traffic and see ever expanding North Bend.

I got engaged on Mount Si! Great day to go for a hike. Very clear and the trail was well maintained. There is a small spot where a tree has fallen over the trail and people have made a trail through it, but coming back down it’s hard to tell where it is. All over perfect day.

It was a good hike . I definitely saw some criminal types hanging around the parking lot so I didn’t venture super far from vehicle but fun all the same

Wonderful fun run with plenty of hills and views. Great fresh air. Beautiful run.

Always a fun little hike :)

Great view from the top! A little steep at the end, but totally worth it.

Nice trails throughout. Parking lot has an awesome lookout point.

The rain has arrived. Trail was not really muddy or slippery, though the top was shrouded in clouds with zero views. Good exercise as usual. Tip for getting some view under such weather: at the UPPER talus loop trail junction take a detour onto talus loop trail. In about five minutes you will arrive at the talus pile. This is low enough that it can be below the clouds, but high enough to have a descent view.

Hiked it with my dog on 10/27. I am super out of shape but I pushed myself and made it up and down! I am proud of myself- as this hike is an ass kicker. It was beautiful. My dog had no issues, he’s in much better shape than me haha!!

Beautiful hike that provides lots of good exercise!

easy bus ride from downtown. lots of options to extend your walk. a nearby wastewater plant lends some unwanted "ambience" in places, but wasn't too bad. fog can limit the view on some days too.

Butt kicker, but a nice view at the top of the rocks. Only real downside is the number of people and an overall lack of trail etiquette

Wonderful hike with kids

Great view at the top. Nice shade along the trails. Overall not too much litter for as many people that visit this trail.

A strenuous hike but the views of lake crescent from the top are worth it. Beware the snack stealing warblers.

Absolutely Beautiful! Hard incline for me since it was only my second actual hike but I did it and it was awesome. Met a few nice people too. At the top there is nice group camp site along with a well maintained bathroom. Definitely would be a great place to camp if you don't mind packing everything in and out!

We started this hike after turning left onto the trail around 7:30am, it ended up being a perfect day with the sun out. the trail was easy to figure out, a good amount of switchbacks which leads to a rock scramble and i think 3 rope areas to climb up. I would not put your full weight on the rope, one of the ropes were pretty sketchy because it looked frayed and was tied to a very small bush. we ended up going to the "false summit" instead. This is the one where you can see over lake crescent and sit or stand on a rock ledge. The true summit was far too steep for us to handle as a normal day hike, it looked a bit more technical.
In all it took about 2.5 hours to summit and back to trail head. we ended up taking a detour to check out the falls which are like an additional .5 miles away after we hiked storm king.
