Stunning hike! Highly recommend. The drive up is pretty rough but it’s worth it.

Took the dalles ridge trail or northern approach due to the road to the coral pass entrance being closed. If you look that trail up on the app it will give you exact coordinates to the trail head. Trail head is on the side of the road and not marked at all except for a little green marking tape on a tree, but the coordinates in google maps took me straight to it. Overall, a gorgeous snowy hike on a beautiful sunny day. About 4 miles to the top and stunning views all around!

So amazing! Lake was clear and gorgeous! View of mountain was breathtaking! Already thinking about going again.

Did this hike on 10/20 just before they closed the road to Sunrise. I think this is now my favorite hike to date. The trail was very well maintained and easy to follow. It does have quite a bit of gain, especially going to third burrough but it's definitely worth all the blood, sweat and tears! (ok maybe no blood). I loved that the terrain was so different, not at all what I expected, being so close/in the mountains. I believe there was a sign saying it was similar to the Tundra landscape. Either way, bring lots of water as there are no places to re-fill, hat, sunscreen (depending on when you go) because there is NO shade, poles and food. It took us about 6 hours with lots of breaks and PLENTY of stops for pictures.

Did this hike after another 2,000+ up/down hike.

Hiked from the bottom to the top and then took the Gondola down.

Note: There's a restaurant at the top but it's not terribly good.
Note2: BRING BUGSPRAY. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.

There were far more people hiking down, but I always like the challenge of going up. Much nicer. Also, you can buy gondola tickets at the top, so you can leave early in the morning.

This is always my go to trail to just get away from people. You'll maybe see 6 or so people the entire trip. Lots of places to camp and plenty is space between camp sites giving you the solitude you want!

Great hike! Burroughs three is definitely the best but all three are worth the views. Perfect weather. Glowing yellow Larches from the valleys. I highly recommend making it a loop for the change in scenery and terrain.

Did it this morning - hit trail just before 8am and had the trail to ourselves for quite a while, it was lovely! This was not easy for this early 30s couple - took us about 5.5 hours with many breaks (for breathing, food, and pictures). Very cool though and was amazing to have third Burroughs just about to ourselves (about 6 others spread out across the 2 peaks). Oh! And goats! We saw goats :D. Take water, bring poles, and don’t rush yourself - the climb seems to just keep going, but you’ll make it. And just ignore those people trail running :)

Beautiful trek with breathtaking views. The trail can be completed by starting from 2 directions from the sunrise visitor center. If you wish for a easy one start from the path nearest to frozen lake as it is nearly flat. Otherwise start from the one nearer to emmons vista trail. 4 hrs from car to car. And take a good amount of water with you.

Amazing views of Rainier! We hiked this 10/14 and the weather and visibility were perfect! We just went to first boroughs then down the sunrise rim trail which was just as awe inspiring. This east coast girl never hiked this altitude but had no issues whatsoever. I only wish my hiking partner was up for the entire trail. Highly recommend this hike. We got to Sunrise around 1030, plenty of parking, but the lodge is closed for the season. We stopped at a little gift shop outside of the park Wapiti Woolies for some souvenirs and hit the Naches Tavern across the street for a couple drinks, a bite to eat, and a round of pool. A completely perfect day

Beautiful fall hike in the woods..trail is in
amazing shape..be sure friends are not afraid to cross bridges..the first bridge is very slanted but secure..icy in the AM. But so worth it all .Great Hike!

This hike was amazing, the views we had of Mt Rainier were incredible. We started the hike around 7:30am, It is essentially just walking up 3 big hills. The weather was great, sunny with a few clouds near Rainier which moved away. The first two mountains we easy and direct, when we got to the bottom of the second there was a sign pointing left for Burroughs trail and right to frozen lake, it confused us a bit because we wanted to do the third burrough mountain so we just continued on up the third one, It did look a bit daunting but the views on the third mountain are the best! It took use about 3 hours out and back, we stopped a bit for pictures and to snack a bit. I recommend hiking early, there seemed to be allot of people starting their hikes at 10am-11 and this is when the clouds seemed to role in so they might of missed their chance for a good view. On the way back we saw a pack of mountain goats, and TONS of chipmunks.

This was a great hike with some great views when the clouds broke. Great shots of Rainier.

Amazing hike. Only went to the second Burroughs but still totally worth it. Did the hike on 9/29 and even though the weather in Seattle was warm (low 70s) it was pretty chilly on the hike (low 50s). Also, I’m used to East Coast, low altitude hiking and even though I could feel a difference because of the altitude, it wasn’t too bad.

Hiked Summit Lake on 10/6/18. Saw about 20-25 people the whole day. Lots of dogs on leash including ours. The trail is very well maintained. This is one of my absolute favorite hikes! We started up later in the day, hitting the trailhead around 12:30pm. We met people coming down who didn't have the opportunity to see Mt. Rainier earlier in the day. Our late start meant we were able to get some gorgeous peek-a-boo views of the Mountain when we reached the trail summit. Perfect day!! Yes, the road up is rough, but the parking lot was full so it is definitely not deterring anyone. Please remember to pack your trash out.

This was one of the best hikes I have done. This was 2nd time doing it. The first time we ended at 2nd Burrough fog was heavy so we couldn’t see anything. This past weekend the sun was out and shinning. I decided to take my friend the opposite way. So we started on rim trail and ended frozen lake trail. It was steeper going up, but easier coming down, when we reached 2nd Burrough since sun was out. Loads were rolling in we decided to start to head to 3rd Burrough. We asked people coming down they said was worth the hike. When we got to the top it was amazing! There were clouds on top portion of rainier but still amazing. As we enjoyed lunch the clouds started to move and give us glimpses of the top of rainier. Absolutely amazing! Worth it on a clear day. We saw 1 squirrel is all! Was looking for goats but did not see any on Saturday.

My wife and I hiked up to 2nd Burroughs and once again it was amazing!! It was the first time to 2nd Burroughs and she loved it. I was hoping to see some Mountain Goats but not this time. We did see a bear heading up to the parking lot which was cool. I recommend if you just go to 2nd Burroughs to start to 3rd Burroughs until you hit the first turn (an extra 20 yards). One of the best view of the mountain and trail!!!

A nice moderate uphill grade. With an Alpine lake and early fall colors. It was an awesome hike

easy hike. Knats are harmless, but if you stand in one spot for more than 10sec the large deer flies will bite you!

This is one of the best hikes we have done in all of WA. We started out headed to Frozen Lake because of a recommendation from a park ranger. I would actually not take this route again, if we had gone the other way it would have provided better views of the mountain while heading towards the first burrough. Each burrough you go to has a better view than the last, and I would highly recommend going to the third burrough for a perfect ending. It is about 1.5 miles from the second burrough down an unmarked dirt path below. Warning, it is a harder climb up than the first two. At the top you are about as close to Mt Rainier as possible with great views of the glaciers on the opposite side. Overall, even with the third burrough added on the hikes difficulty was not extreme and offered insane views throughout.

Beautiful trail. Paved road all the way and large parking area. Vine maples are changing color... lots of variety on this hike. A very enjoyable outing!

Beautiful hike, not too difficult. Tons of camping spots, including one that overlooks the lake up top. The lake is strikingly blue, even on a cloudy day. Will have to return for a cloudless day to see Mt. Rainier from the lookout.

No toilet at the trailhead (people made their own toilet pits in the dirt), but there is a primitive toilet when you reach the lake. The trail is in excellent condition, but the road is not. Very rocky with potholes. I wouldn't say 4x4 or AWD is absolutely necessary, but clearance is. Even if you drive very carefully in a low clearance vehicle, you may damage the underside.

Great views or MR. interesting to sit and watch the clouds change around the mountain. One area approx .25 mi had steep dropoffs and was a bit rocky, narrow path. Otherwise all good.
Finally saw goats! There were in distance but happy to see goats. Also saw 4 young deer, 1 marmot and many chipmunks.
Overall J enjoyed Paradise skyline trail much better.

Outstanding weather today, started about 10 am & stopped at Burroughs Mtn #2 for lunch. Views of Rainier were in & out re top due to cloud cover, but still worth the trip! Does get cold up top, we had on every layer we owned, Polar fleece & puffy jackets, hats & head band for extra ear warmth.

Treck up some work, easy for experienced hikers. Take your time, soak in views! Including sheep, an eagle, and several annoying pica up top... Just an all around outstanding day!

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.

great trail! beautiful views at the lakes and definitely will be a repeat for us

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 :)
