did this counter clockwise , did this trail after minsi for mind the gap. I did prefer this trail only because it had more incline

Did the peak in mid October got pinned down at the top by High Winds and freezing rain! Be sure to get an early start and make it back to camp before dark! We barely made it back down before dark but a very beautiful climb!

I was the first car in the parking lot and had the whole place to myself! It was beautiful and peaceful.

Beautiful just very busy

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Excellent way to start the day! Love the terrain.

The summit makes you work for it, but the view is worth the effort. Recommend trekking poles for those of you who suffer from weak knees or lungs, like me.

11/17/18 - fun hike, definitely glad to follow the route here and save cascade for last as porter was great but much less climactic. Lots of wind at the top of both so either don’t spend more than a minute or be prepared. Brought along snowshoes because we were told by a worker at EMS that you can be fined for not carrying/wearing them but we just carried them the whole way and wore crampons and gaiters. Mountain got fresh snow the day and night before but by 9 am the trail was pretty packed down. Started later than we would have liked and ran into 2 or 3 10+ groups so if you want solitude definitely go early. Make sure to constantly take sips from your camelback to keep it from freezing! Especially when up on the summits. Started around 9:10, stopped multiple times for food/equipment/layer changes, flew down after both summits and got to the car around 3:00.

rock scrambling is the best.

Short (2 miles round trip), well maintained trail. I would call this family friendly (472 feet of elevation gain). Plenty of opportunities to stop and rest (and take pictures) on the way up. The views of the lake and Wizard Island were great.

We really enjoyed this hike! The falls were really pretty and there were lots of rocky areas at the base to sit down and have a picnic. It came a pretty decent rain storm while we were on this trail, but the forest was thick enough that we didn't really get wet.

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Love love love this place! This time of year there were hardly anyone, very peaceful.

Great trail with amazing views like others have said, however I'd note that it's best to take the trail up from the Loop Route, then up to Beehive Summit. With the ledges and iron rungs, It could be challenging to descend the eastern face from the summit

Incredibly simple trail down to a beautiful waterfall. A bit crowded due to the ease, but would still highly recommend because the waterfall it’s an atypical one.

Amazing scenery right around the corner from the lodge. Hiked (I guess you could call it that since it’s pretty easy relative to 2nd or 3rd beach) once in the dark of night for some astrophotography shots and then again in the morning. Even though we had hazy weather the scenery was fantastic with great reflections off the beach.

We didn’t go all the way to the lake based on feedback from various other hikers that it wasn’t worth the trek down but we hiked the full ridge and quite enjoyed it. Very quiet hike with a couple marmot sightings.

This hike was amazing. Gorgeous views, but dont get fooled by the 7.5 mile round trip it's a lot longer than that just one way due to all the switchbacks you traverse. So some trail training is a must before attempt to tackle this trail. When you get to the top it's all worth the effort.

Awesome hike! Moderately difficult on the way up, easy strolling on the way down. Bring a windbreaker if you can!

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

What a great hike! Definitely do the slot canyon, and if you want to avoid any crowds go early morning weekdays. There was practically no one there.

Boring. Easy.

Boring. Easy.

Went up the Red Dot trail and down the Blue. I have asthma and a chronic cough and am definitely out of shape and haven't hiked in years so the ascent was extremely challenging for me. There are a couple of very difficult spots that are all rock and steep. I almost gave up but I knew the payoff would be so sweet if I made it to the top. I had to stop many times. My poor partner who is very much more fit than I was patient, however, and we made it. I am so glad I stuck with it. The top was amazing and thrilling and beautiful. You can do this! If I can do this, anyone can. Coming down was much much much easier except my toes were jamming into the front of my boots. Beautiful waterfall and stream at the bottom. I felt so accomplished and alive and the end. You must do this!

Easy. Easy. Easy.

Done it 3 times. Once in 105 degree weather
It’s a good trail. Not simple, not too hard.
