HikingGreat!No shadeRocky

Moderate. Not a lot of shade. Beautiful scenery the whole way up. Super crowded and everyone wore a mask. It’s $30 to get into the park as well. Wish I would have stopped outside the gate and did a few outside trails, it seems the view of Mt Rainier is amazing from all angels surrounding. Even from the road.

It's a great trail. We went there on 8/9, it had some snow in couple of sections. We went a bit extra to Burrough mountain, felt good about so close to the Rainier. There were also a few meadows with beautiful flowers.

Scenic drivingGreat!

Beautiful drive and beautiful views! We got there around 10:30, a Sunday hike on a holiday weekend, so there were a lot of people, but it seemed that there were enough trail options for people to explore that this trail didn’t seem too overly crowded. A few incline spots were difficult, so a moderate rating is accurate, but just take your time and know that the climb to the view of Mount Rainier is worth it!

HikingGreat!

It is a wonderful place at the top with many different beautiful sceneries. Awesome views all around. We went the opposite direction from the map so it was a little challenging with the gain in elevation. It was sunny and hot when going up, but at the top it was little chilly with the wind. It is our best hike so far!!!

We went there a night before. Slept for a while and started hike at 4:30 AM. It’s moderately busy on trail and very busy up there for sunrise.. gets less crowded as soon as sun rises.. 1. Carry enough water 2. Carry something to eat (energy bar, chocolate, bananas) 3. You must use hiking shoes as sports shoes won’t work and might injure you 4. Parking is definitely a problem after 8 AM

HikingFeeGreat!No shade

Spectacular hiking and unbelievably gorgeous views of the mountain, especially from 2nd Burroughs! Pretty decent wait at the park entrance, even at 8am, but plenty of parking when we got to Sunrise. We started with Mt Fremont, then made our way down and back up to Burroughs, then took Sunrise back to the lot. It was sunny and warm unless the wind picked up...and on 2nd Burroughs the wind was nonstop. Bring a covering and maybe even gloves, it was pretty chilly up there for sure! I cannot say enough for the beauty of this area and how well kept the park is. Rangers abound and everyone was so friendly. It was busy but not overwhelming and most everyone was masked. Definitely coming back here again soon!

HikingGreat!

Wonderful hike ... had to wait about 30 minutes at the entry gate ... was windy and cold up on top once you passed the frozen lake .. but it’s worth it will definitely come back again... definitely liked the picnic area ..

Hiking

Very crowded. About half the people we saw were wearing masks. We finally arrived at Sunrise around 11:15ish after waiting in line to get through the gate for about an hour. This is definitely a hike that would be best enjoyed earlier in the day. There’s not really any tree cover outside of the Sunrise camp area so it can get pretty warm. The wind happened to be pretty strong when we went, so it made finding a lunch spot a little tricky, but once we had it, the views made everything worth the while. Overall the views are amazing and definitely a different side of the mountain from Paradise, next time we’ll either get up earlier or camp here to begin with the night before.

Beautiful backdrop from start to finish! A few short stretches up uphill, but very doable. Took us 3 hrs, taking it really slow with a 12 & 14 year old and stopping for lunch break.

Great hike, great views. For a while on the way down the trail becomes pretty narrow along a steep rocky hill, very high up- Kinda sketchy but the view was amazing. Would recommend

This trail definitely has the heights, thrill, fantastic views and wild flowers. We took this trail coming back the the Mountain Burroughs. So glad we did!!! We will be back again one day.
