Beautiful hike, crowded at 7am. Walked it with our cat, don’t forget your discovery pass! There is also a pull off on the road immediately before the trail parking lot (if coming west from Seattle) that saves you about a mile of hiking.

$5 permit needed for parking. No issues finding parking at 4pm. Such a fun hike given variety of nature such as little creeks or a fallen tree blocking the path. Best of all is the reward of a beautiful lake at the top!

Love this hike, definitely a climb but so worth the view. Got up early and did it at sunrise, there was still a layer of fog on the water and the ship-man it made for a beautiful hike. It’s a challenge but a goody. Parking is limited so I recommend getting there early!

Easy with kids! Wish we had packed a picnic!

I found this trail BRUTAL. Make sure you have a huge breakfast and bring at least 2+ litres of water and plenty of food and snacks. Only exposure to sun is right at the top so don't worry about SPF or anything like that unless you plan on staying up there a while.

It was gorgeous and breathtaking but I can't comment on whether the physically demanding hike is worth it. That's up to you to decide.

I used the trailhead direct bus from seattle, only $2.75 and drops you off right at the bottom of the trail. These run at the weekends in summer only I believe.

Trail wasn't too crowded for a Saturday and everyone was really friendly and encouraging. Some athletes ran up and down it then back up again in the time it took us to climb up!

Great trail to the waterfall. Show up early and it's not bad.

Much more enjoyable than the zoo at Snoqualmie Falls.

Nice trail. A lot of the hike is spent in the woods on switchbacks but the top has some excellent views. Get ready to sweat.

Warning! Trail is closed until 08/31. Rangers are actively ticketing trespassers

Loved it, get there early to get a spot and bring your Discover Pass. You can purchase a day pass in the parking lot for $10. Recommend walking sticks for the descent. Beautiful views of river and falls.
Air quality was good but a bit of a haze still lingered.

The trail was pretty good. The weather was cloudy so very soothing to sit at the top. Only drawback was mount Ranier was not visible.
First break spot is at 1.25. Miles.
2hours to go up and 1 hour to go down for us...

Climbed Mt. Si for first time today while taking a back to school shopping break. The parking lot was not crowded. The trail was in great condition and easy to follow. It was quite the climb the entire way. It took me about an hour and 20 minutes. I thought this was great, until someone ran passed me almost at the top. It did take some others I met almost 3 hours to get to the top. I enjoyed being in the trees for most of the time until the top. I followed some others to the top of the haystack. It was quite the view, too bad it was smoky. I would recommend this hike just bring water and be prepared for a ‘great ‘ leg/butt workout.

I’m a novice hiker and this was my second hike in the PNW so far. The views along the way made it really enjoyable the whole way.

Excellent. Hiked the entire distance in one day - started at Stuart trail , finished at Snow lake trail head. Took 15 hrs ( swimming stop and rest breaks) a bit scary hiking last 4-5 miles in the dark.
Beautiful scenic yet challenging hike. Thank you to my friend Kristen who organized this adventure !

Great for training but, not really much else.

Took this hike with my very athletic son. He never broke a sweat, however I certainly did! Gorgeous views and quite a workout for me.

The tree cover is lovely, the views are breathtaking (if you don’t get caught in cloud cover) and the hike is a steady incline, with some harder switchbacks near the top. Only negative: it gets really packed with people.

Nice easy to get to hike. A good amount of people and dogs however on a Thursday morning. Still very enjoyable.

been there last summer. it was my first hike in Washington. the view was amazing but the hike was kinda hard and I don't recommend this to beginners

great hike and loved the view of falls

I love this hiking.

Awesome trail, but try to avoid it on weekends. It is literally the interstate of hikes.

Awesome hike. Waterfalls are a must see.

Easy hike, tons of places to take the kids to play in the water. Awesome waterfall. Definitely a must see!

One of the best hikes I’ve been on!

This hike kicked my ass. Went when it was in the 100’s and it was humid. Went through my camel pack water and two water bottles before even reaching the top. Luckily a guy gave me a water and Gatorade because I had a panic attack and was crying because it was so humid. So yes bring LOTS of water. The hardest part was the last mile going up the rocks and probably coming back down because your exhausted. But the view is worth it. If you’re not in shape or don’t hike I suggest that you don’t do this as your first hike.

BRING LOTS OF WATER LOL

We started at the Stuart Lake Trail Head working our way up to Colchuck Lake. This is an outstanding hike, unfortunately the smoke got in our eyes, a lot of smoke in the are which interfered with views but worth it!

Totally too easy of a “hike” but very beautiful with the river and falls!

Ran a half marathon on this trail this weekend. Beautiful trial with LOTS of rolling hills. Be aware this trail is used by bikers and horses.

Gorgeous
