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

great views. very snowy on april 18 2018. extra gear needed to reach the top due to weather that time.

An incredible trail that is well worth the hike. I was a bit out of shape so it was a little harder than I expected. We got up early so we could beat everyone onto the trail which is a great general rule if you want to keep at your own pace.

The views are incredible. One of my absolute favorite hikes.

Did this hike on 4-14-18. It rained the whole time, some of the trail was washed out but manageable. Tons of snow at the top which had me wishing I had brought my snowshoes. Overall a super beautiful hike, was surprised how many others braved the weather for it!

Went in the rain. Super wet trail. Lots of creeks and rock hopping to cross. Still a lot of snow towards the top which could be a tad slippery with some sink holes. Beautiful hike nonetheless

so gorgeous...

Amazing! This is a must do. The experience is great. It can be a little rough once you reach the rocks, but the top is so totally worth it. Moderate is a great description of this trail, depending on conditioning, and can be challenging at spots for some. The top is worth it!!

There is lots of snow on the trail still so be prepared. We had to hike on the road for about 1.5 mile before actually getting to the trail head. Most people had snowshoes but we went without so you could do both. It was a pretty hike with all the snow but views were minimal since it was all whited out (reason for 4 stars). Definitely will try again!

25th March. Nice walk. Beautiful views.

Very crowded. Nice hike.

You may get winded on your way up, but take your time! The views are spectacular and you may see some mountain goats. Just don't get too close!

Great sunrise hike or afternoon hike. Crowded.

I hiked this April 2 and it was beautiful and I would definitely recommend this, it's a little hard going up but the view is worth it.

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.

Loved this hike! A great workout and a great challenge with an incline the whole way up, the rope portion after the maintained trail ends was also a unique challenge. The views of crescent lake the the mountains was well worth it!

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.

great challenging hike. be in shape bc this feels like a straight incline for a majority of the hike. views are so worth it!

beautiful hike especially with the snow. can't wait to do it in the summer.

A very fun trail with awesome views on sunny days. Well worth the trip to get here.

An awesome trail with a great reward at the end. It's the hardest trail I've done, and will definitely keep going back. It's a hard trail, and that's what makes it fun. Bring hiking poles, you'll need them.

This hike was probably at the time, the most strenuous hike I’ve ever went on. It starts easy looping up but the incline starts to kick in probably 20 minutes in. Once you make it to the top.... the view is absolutely breathtaking. We sat there for hours. Start early, if not.. no later than 2pm. This hike takes about 2 hours. Great for photography shots. Seriously an Instagram worthy spot.

I really enjoyed this hike. Perfect for all levels I believe. It can be strenuous but also, has a steady incline, so you can make it as tough or easy as you want. I also want to clarify that this hike is 5miles round trip, you just have to be sure to hit the Upper Ledge. The lower ledge is 2miles from trail head to view, but if you continue on another 1/2mile you will find the middle and upper ledges. Not as much room to run around on those ledges, but truly beautiful.

This hike is only 4 miles, not 5. It was on the easier side of moderate with a huge payout at the end. Absolutely gorgeous views!! I did Poo Poo Point last weekend and Rattlesnake Ledge is definitely easier in comparison. Busy but otherwise a great hike! No snow on the actual trail, which was nice.

Amazing view, worth the hike.

Fun trail. The views from the top are awesome. Lots of people use this trail so it is a little crowded.

Really enjoyed this hike. This was my first time out on a hike and I loved it. coming down was a little slippery but overall it was worth it. One of the bridges is falling apart.
