Driving the last ~mi on the way in is rough in spots but a car can make it, just take care. Excellent views at the very end above the treeline. All-around great hike with interesting landscape throughout.

Fun trail with interesting sights along the way. There is some mud and a point where you either have to ford a creek or walk over a fallen tree, so go for waterproof footwear if possible. The end with the falls are gorgeous in autumn and you can view it both from the bottom and get right up to the top. We brought our pup and he had great time, but smaller or older dogs may not be equipped to complete the entire loop.

Great trail, plenty of switchbacks to help break up the incline but plan to go earlier in the day if you want the trail to yourself because it’s pretty popular and the trail can get pretty packed.

Beautiful views and easy hike. I love the hike in terms of convenience. Less travel time and no hassles in terms of parking.

Is amazing!

We did this hike on Mothers Day. We took the old trail up & new trail down..wear proper shoes for the down hill. Amazing accomplishment....hardest
one for me so far

Great as long as you go early

Insanely crowded. I felt like I was in a single file line going up.

Relatively flat, wide gravel trail. Nice waterfall area at the end. Mostly smaller growth trees in the beginning.

Convenient to Duvall.

Definitely a workout! Did this hike on Monday (11/13) and it was relatively busy at the top from it being a holiday. My phone recorded round trip about 12 miles, but I’m not sure how accurate this is. The last 0.5 miles are a grind but the view from the top is worth it. Watch for ice patches, poles are a good idea. When we hiked a group of hockey players were taking up a fire hydrant, look for it at the top!!

The trail itself is great, but it's heavily trafficked

I got engaged on Mount Si! Great day to go for a hike. Very clear and the trail was well maintained. There is a small spot where a tree has fallen over the trail and people have made a trail through it, but coming back down it’s hard to tell where it is. All over perfect day.

The trail is nice. It’s a good scenic trail with lots of cool places to stop and take pictures. The only bad thing is it’s a popular trail. Once you get to the top, you’ll be fighting for places to stop and take a break or pictures. We went on a Saturday morning and we were at the top with about 50 other people who had the same idea as we did today. The parking lot fills fast and people started parking on the street before the parking lot. So, we’ll definitely go back on a Wednesday morning or something so it won’t be so crowded.

Wonderful fun run with plenty of hills and views. Great fresh air. Beautiful run.

Great Hike.

Great hike for all age groups. If you’re not a beginner, I’d recommend trail running as well. Breathtaking views from the cliff. You can continue further if you wish as the trail continues further. Took us 3 hours from car to car including breaks. Would highly recommend for sunrise.

Steep for kids, but amazing views and great lookout at the top. Mountain stream just over halfway up.

Good well kept trail, first 2/3 is easy, well maintained path. Last night is a bit tougher and can get quite sloppy with heavy rains. Keeping to the left Allows for extension along older Logging roads. The last turn to the cause it’s not super obvious. Fun day hike.

The rain has arrived. Trail was not really muddy or slippery, though the top was shrouded in clouds with zero views. Good exercise as usual. Tip for getting some view under such weather: at the UPPER talus loop trail junction take a detour onto talus loop trail. In about five minutes you will arrive at the talus pile. This is low enough that it can be below the clouds, but high enough to have a descent view.

hiked this on 10/28, got .15mi from the end and turned back due to snow and thunder. once we got back down 500ft or so it turned back to rain, and by the time we got back to the rock fields we had some sun and views of Mt St Helens. didn’t see anyone else which was kind of nice. trail was easy to follow, steep in some parts, and near the top some narrow parts with a sharp drop off. if you’re planning on doing this in the next few weeks, plan accordingly.

Hiked it with my dog on 10/27. I am super out of shape but I pushed myself and made it up and down! I am proud of myself- as this hike is an ass kicker. It was beautiful. My dog had no issues, he’s in much better shape than me haha!!

I've always found the hike a little boring up until the viewpoint. There are a lot of switchbacks and not a lot to see until the end. However, the view is definitely worth it! Be careful at the top!

10/28/18 Rainy day for a hike but great none the less! We took the new trail both ways. It was longer than the 8.4 mile loop from all trails. Our phone apps all said 13.1 miles, but who knows. It was steady uphill climb, but totally doable. We took breaks for water and snacks. When we got to the rock field toward the top the temperature dropped and the wind picked up. Right near the summit we had sideways rain/snow mix. It was a little scary at times since we were out in the open. While it was foggy and cloudy and rainy most of the rest of the time, it was a great hike! We are planning on going in the early summer again to see all the views.

Not recommend. Although it's a well-marked trail, there are a lot of burned areas blocking the way. The trail is too narrow, so we stopped many times to make way for biker. And the view of the top was disappointing, good for biking but not for hiking.

Went this morning (Saturday 10/27). Glad we got there early (~8:15) not too many people on the trail yet, but they were steadily streaming in as we left. We took ~2.5 hours with breaks at the view points. The lake isn’t really there at the moment, so the views weren’t as great, but still nice mountain shots. We thought the first big viewpoint was just as good or better than the one at the top (this may change when the lake is actually there).
