Beautiful view

Really fun, and short. I usually go on longer more nature hikes but this was a good experience because of the nooks and crannies you climb through. I would definitely do it again, and if you are looking for a hike in the San Diego area this is a good one to consider!

Such a beautiful hike, the waterfalls & wildflowers were breathtaking. We did have two young black bears cross in front of us, highly recommend taking some bear spray

When in SD with my sister, we completed this trail with her Ex. It was amazing! All I remember was it was hard because I didn’t have the proper foot ware from packing lite due to a cross county road trip. The terrain was rocky and steep incline. But the view was worth the ankle rolls. I remember the Rick formations and crossing the fence - Not sure why those things stick out in my mind but they do lol! Go here if and when in SD! I always try to do a hike when traveling and so far I’ve been successful!

Absolutely Beautiful!! This is my favorite hike yet. There were waterfalls, bridge crossings, wild flowers, stone stairs, 11 mountain goats, marmots, butterflies, and a beautiful turquoise lake. It was a moderate hike and was 12.5 miles round trip. I will definitely do this one again!!

We enjoyed this loop walk. It is mostly on dirt and provides a lot of shade which was great on a warm day. Pretty views of the lake and you can walk right up to the lake from the trail. We only encountered a couple other people walking it, so we pretty much had it to ourselves. Lots of people fishing along the lake. Great start to our vacation, we walked from our cabin.

Walked Lake Gregory a few times. Pretty lake. Very easy walk and has some shade. There is a grocery store called Goodwins right by the lake that has great deli sandwiches that you can pick up and eat while viewing the lake.

nice run but when we went the water was very low leading to a bad odor 1/4 of the way around. nice single path trail though which was very nice. there's a path that's right on the road and then a lower path that is nearer to the water. the path by the water is obviously much better and less trafficked. some portions of the trail force you up to the path on the road though so be warned.

A really beautiful day hike! Its definitely smoky at the moment but not enough to deter us. The trail was shady most of the way which was great. Plenty of gorgeous views!

Most favorite place to be, 45 minutes from my house.

This trail has so many beautiful waterfalls! It’s rated moderate which it may be in spring when there’s water to cross but in the summer I’d say this one is easy.

Summerland was as good as it gets! Starts in the shaded forest - well-groomed and wide trail - then opens up into wildflowers and gorgeous views of Rainier...switchbacks up to the actual camp get your views better and better. Once we got there, we just had to keep going - the lake was calling us. Hike through great bolder fields to get there. It looks other-worldly. We were happy to reach the beautiful lake but looked up and saw people on the far ridge line (Panhandle Gap) and wanted to go there...so continued our journey over a couple snow patches and up. We lunched a little passed Panhandle up the highest point we could find. It was an amazing day. We started on the trailhead maybe around 6am but passed a LOT of people (on a Monday) on the way out - ended up being 12 miles! One for the books!

Great trail, we didn’t know what to expect. We actually started from Tennessee Trails, stopped by Pirates Cove, went to Muir Beach and then returned. That “small” hill going back was a beater for my boyfriend and I, but well worth it!

Beautiful, scenic hike. There are paid parking lots but there is a small parking lot next to the chamber of commerce which offers free parking. The trail can be accessed at that area near the picnic tables.

Rock climbers loops was amazing as well as thrilling. Perfect if you're trying to increase your endurance. Wonderful park, with a hike for any age group.

Great views & beautiful hike after a solid incline. Missed views due to the fog It was also misty at top & some snow was crossed. Portions of trail rocky and uneven but worth the gorgeous glacier falls. Great to see all the WA Conservation Corp volunteers crushing rock by hand & trail maintenance - gratitude. Baby marmots actually posing for photos, look for goats on the cliff side. Facilities at the top were a bonus.3 up 2 down. Busy trail but expected.

Beautiful hike. Highly suggest going past Summerland camp for at least 1 mile because the best part was after the camp. Lots of marmots and beautiful wildflowers. Fun crossings over rivers. Not too strenuous, just a steady climb. Lots of walking in woods which was nice but prefer a little more open hiking.

Only negative is all the trucks and motorcycles. A very dusty trail due to that... otherwise it’s a great hike with great views... nice trees!

Lovely walk around the lake. The trail is mostly dirt or gravel and mostly tucked away, with a few paved sections. Shady and lots of opportunity to get down to the shoreline.

We went to this trail on July 26th. It was an amazing trek. We saw a lot of wild flowers and the view of Mt. Rainier was breathtaking. Throughout the hike we saw a lot of things and it was worth the effort .

Quite an intense hike. Great for beginners. Rock climbing is an add-on feature of the hike.

Everything you could look for in a dayhike:
Waterfalls, bridges, tall trees, wildflowers, crossing glacier streams & glaciers and a glacier lake. Plus keep following the wonderland trail to glaciers and bright blue rocks, spectacular!

Plenty of wild flowers in Summerland basin this weekend

Beautiful 6 volcano view at the top. great workout

If your close by, and want a little stretch/stroll, this is your best bet. Seems like a lot of locals walk the lake. Most parking is paid parking ($8-9). Looks like free parking in at least one spot (see track). The lake is swimmable, and again it appears a lot of locals hang out there. Looks good for kids. Lots of Toys, and activity structures in the water, and seems safe for kids (complete with life guards). Again, you pay for entrance. There is a par course in some of the areas.

Great trail, awesome views

We had an amazing time! When you get to the top of Summerland you can hike up a bit further to the Panhandle Gap for some further spectacular views. Absolutely beautiful. Will definitely be back.
