What an amazing view!!!!! It was a great hike to the top!

Our favorite trail in seattle. Nice lake. It gets busy specially on weekends. Finding a parking spot is very challenging. Super dog friendly. Most of the dogs are off leash. Gets really muddy so wear proper footwear. Also you can hangout and chill on the cliffs. It has a few good spots.

I loved the hike and the view but it was very busy today and it's Monday

Sunrise hike here is amazing!

A short, relatively easy hike with a big payoff! The views were better than we expected and Rattlesnake Lake was turquoise green from the top. Took us about 45 minutes up. Trail was in great condition, and there are pit toilets at the park below. The only negative part of the hike for me was the trial etiquette. Lots of music blaring (instead of enjoying the sounds of nature), litter on the trail, and loud hikers. People goof off at the top near the cliffs.

Beautiful Views, trafficked, good season opener.

Super dog friendly! Just keep them leashed. Saw several today not leashed and owners not seeming to care that they disturbed other hikers. :/ The trail was clean, wide snd easy to navigate with a steady upward incline nearly 95% of the time. Great views from the ledge! A bit cloudy today with slight snow flurries, but it went away quickly leaving a partial view of Mt Si. Would certainly visit this trail again!

I didn’t find snow on my way to the view points today, make sure to hit the trail early

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Hiked to Lake 22 on Saturday and the parking lot was full and slightly icy. Had to park across the street in the entrance of the second lot, as that was completely covered in snow and a car got stuck trying to go in. The hike is really pretty easy, definitely icy and lots of snow. The lake is starting to thaw and there was a high avalanche warning, but it seemed safe to me. Super beautiful!

Beautiful sunny, warm day for a beautiful hike. Tons of people and dogs. The trip was still gorgeous though. Good season opener.

Hiked up the ledge and to east point yesterday, spikes would have been helpful however I did it without. You can get by without just a little slippery towards the end. Great views and met some cool people along the way.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

It was a gorgeous day to be up there. From Snowqualmie it’s about 10-11 miles round trip but it’s not too bad and the elevation gain is mostly gradual. Poles are extremely help and for the best view bring snowshoes because about a mile past the Grand viewpoint is a clear cut that you can explore, it has a view of Rainier as well.

Great trail be prepared for a hike. Uphill. The scenery is amazing when u get to the top!

Beautiful day!!!

Fun hike, go early to avoid massive crowding at the top..

amazing views, snow is still present at the top of the trail. I hiked it with plain boots and no spikes or poles we're needed.

Good hike, good view. Loved the snow and elevation.

Awesome trail! Still very icy at the top, lots of opportunities to slip and fall, so be careful and bring poles and microspikes! View at the ledge is absolutely stunning, makes the trek up well worth it.

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.

Beautiful waterfalls views.
Some mud, I would wear hiking shoes.
My puppy had a blast.
I would suggest going on a weekday, weekends seem to be packed with lots of people.

Beautiful waterfalls. Great river views. Able to go to water's edge.

the trail is VERY icy right now. lot of people slipping and falling- be prepared and careful!!

Views: Crystal clear river, old trees, two waterfalls.
Difficulty: Easy the inclines are spaced out and there's plenty of flat walking areas.
Trail conditions: Beginning of March- trail was muddy in some spots overall wasn't too bad. The trail didn't have as many people as Rattlesnake or Poo Poo Point.
Overall: This was a beautiful hike! We brought our dog, and he loved it!

I ran this trail in the evening and there was a pretty good crowd but everyone was very gracious in letting me get by. It was a challenging run but nothing too crazy. The payoff at the top is worth the burn, such a gorgeous scene!

Great hike! It was a bit muddy today but that is to be expected this time of year. (February 27th) We didn’t go to the very end but we made it up to the second fall lookout. Little to no snow on the ground. The trail is well maintained with a handful of sections of log stairs. The falls were incredible!

Hiked up to the lake today, the parking lot was full, very snowy and hard to drive up to. Recommend a 4WD vehicle. We watched a Subaru Outback spin and have to be be pushed out of the parking lot. The hike was moderate and completely covered in snow. Micro spikes weren’t needed, but were helpful on the way down. There were lots of dogs and friendly people on the trail. We didn’t have too much visability but it was still beautiful! A good calf workout :)

Great trail, some packed snow and ice towards the top of the trail so spikes helped, especially on the way down. Loved the views!

Fantastic views. A walkable trail to the ledge makes this accessible to everyone.
