Good trail. Great view of Rainier and got to watch a paraglider launch off. Well maintained. Nice forest hike.

Lots of dogs on trail, friendly hikers, view of Mount Rainier is gorgeous near the top.

I have done this trail before and loved it as much today as I did the first time. Although a Weds, the trail was busy with people and furry four-legged friends. An incredibly beautiful day. It's a great running trail for those who would like the challenge. One woman had run the trail 18 times today!

Beautiful view at the top, took an hour up & down.

Scenic Hike. Gorgeous views at the top.

Very busy during the summer. Parking can be scarce and you can be waiting in choke point in the trail for a few minutes waiting for people to pass through.

Great trail! Started hike at about 8am! Great amount of people on trail. About an hour up and hour back. After 9:30am, trail got really busy!

If you like rush hour traffic on the trail, this is the one for you. Considering what the Pacific Northwest has to offer in this area, the trail itself was rather boring with little to no views the entire way up. The view at the top is pretty great and the color of the lake was neat, but be prepared to shuffle through tourists as well as locals and good luck getting a spot on the cliff to take in the view (which was basically 50+ people taking selfies). You're better off going the extra clip to the very top to get away from the crowds, but even then it was pretty busy. It was good to spend a nice day outside with the great weather, but won't be doing this trail again.

Great Trail, Great View

Incredible views of Rainier at the top! Great hike, great workout, fun to see the paragliders launch at the top!

Easy hike/walk. Not crowded, but got there early. Beautiful waterfall-ish. Not crowded.

Loved it. Easy for the most part - the last mile or so there is moderate climbing but nothing too strenuous. Waterfall itself is definitely worth the hike.

Not easy one, be prepared and wear hiking boots, we saw many people on sneakers, probably their hiking wasn’t so enjoyable not wearing properly shoes. It’s very pretty and the waterfall is worth the hike.

Awesome trail. Great rewarding view at top. A little bit crowded during midday. Lots of unleashed dogs.

Nice hike through the woods, steep grade, but not too difficult. Beautiful View at the top. Well worth the effort.

Muddy on the way.

was here the morning of 4/15/18, boot pack stopped less then a mile from the lake but with no snowshoes was too much with just poles. Will check it out again soon.

Quick drive from Seattle. The view is fantastic. Expect to see at least another twenty hikers at the lookout.

Be prepared for snow

Great hike and an even better workout w/ spectacular views.

Very crowded. Nice hike.

Great sunset hike. Feel comfortable hiking alone as you are never really alone.

Loved it!

Great sunrise hike or afternoon hike. Crowded.

A very nice area for hiking. Very easy system and nicely marked.

Beautiful views on the way up and at the top. It was a little snowy towards the top and I fell a few times when hiking down but no serious injuries sustained! Lol. I’ll wear hiking boots next time. Easy, fun, beautiful hike.

Amazing view. Truly amazing. Hike was steep, but pretty. The destination is definitely worth going for.

It was sunny today, but there were a lot of people on this trail for a Monday. This is about as difficult as my family can handle for now. Great view at the top.

trail was packed. quite the hike up on a hot day. nice views at the top.

Great hike! Snowed on us at the top no equipment needed.

A bit hard to find the trailhead keep driving to the final parking lot

Beautiful park with a lot of opportunity for quieter hiking. Mountain bikers frequent the trail, but are courteous and only hike one way! Quite a few open clearings if you push up towards the summit.
