chilly but beautiful day hike.

pretty views and great trail for beginner to intermediate hikers

Great view at the top. Snow halfway up. Was deep and windy near the top

way to over crowned its like the pumpkin spice latte of hiking.

Great hike! It was chilly today and we didn’t bring enough layers but still very fun!

Over crowded trail.

nothing spectacular about this hike, parking area is packed crowds galore, summit is not much view either there is restrooms at the top, prolly wont hike this again

Beautiful view at top. Moderate difficulty, short and sweet, shaded hike, not too much variety in scenery along hike.

One of my favorites of the Seattle Tinder pic circuit. The views at the top are so so amazing and the hike is a bit challenging.

Great hike all around! Bonus was at the top had several birds eating nuts right out of my hand with snow flurries :)

BEAUTIFUL Hike! Worth the destination AND the journey. There are three ledge lookouts. Most people just stopped at the first before turning back. It's worth hiking another 1/4 mile or so to the next two ledges. the All Trails Topo map makes it easy to find them. I went on a Thursday. There were definitely others on the trail, but not nearly as crowded as it appears to be on the weekend. If I lived in the area, this would be a reocurring hike for me.

Great views

Excellent trail, well maintained. Nice path, very gorgeous view. It was Smokey the day we completed so could have been better, but we did expect that!

Great sunrise hike yesterday. Started at 6 am no one else on the hike up & at the top.

This is one of the first "hard" hikes that I actually agree is "hard". It's short, so just about anyone young or in moderate shape can do it, but the trail is steep, not well maintained, and uneven, with places where you need to scramble up boulders and tree roots... it's not one of those "hard" hikes of maintained, steep switchbacks.
As others have said, the trail is not well marked. In places there are blue paper diamonds to follow, but I found the placement to be completely useless. Follow signs to "upper wall", because the name of this trail on Alltrails has nothing to do with the name of the trail on the signs. I don't know how we would have found our way without the Alltrails map, which at times still had us unsure of which way to go when the trail forked.
I loved that this hike was short but challenging, with a fabulous view at the top! We went on a partially cloudy day, so many of the mountains were obscured, but it was still well worth the drive from Seattle and hike up!

Solid climb and nice views, but the soundscape is dominated by I-90 nearly the entire way.

Excellent trail that is great for beginners. As other reviews state it is an extremely busy trail so try to get started as early as possible to get a good spot at the top. If you are so inclined bring a trash bag to help pick up the litter, unfortunately people leave quite a lot of trash at the top.

If you're feeling froggy when you reach the lower ledge keep hiking up another mile or so and you can get to the middle ledge, which is much less crowded and offers the same amazing views. I haven't made it to the highest ledge yet but that's the goal for next time!

Lots of dogs and kids on the trail. Can watch the paragliders as they go down. The first half is lots of rocks and stones so watch your step if it’s been raining. Nice views at the top. Took us 1hr to get up and 45 to get down, under 4 miles total. Good afternoon hike.

Beautiful trail, awesome view!

It was a bit crowded but well maintained and beautiful weather on the 50 degree sunny late November day.

took the dog on this route today, go early on the weekends the parking area was filled by 8am when we arrived and there was groups of 3-5 on way back down after 10am the crowds get insane took twice as long to get down then go up, but good hike for a early morning hike and back around 1pm

Fantastic view!

Got to the trailhead a little after noon and the lot was full but there really weren’t many people on the trail. If the weather is nice you’ll likely see some paragliders landing at the trailhead. Beautiful view of the surrounding area and Mt Rainer at the first clearing and I’d recommend going up to the second clearing (Poo Poo Point) to get a view of Cougar Mtn and Lake Sammamish. Super short trail - only took us a little over an hour going up with a few breaks and probably 45 min going down at the most.

Beautiful hike

It was great hiking . It was hard but safe !!!

it’s almost an hour hike to the top and 1 hour return, very beautiful on the top, but super dangerous. Totally not recommended for those who hike with kids, some people have fallen and died from the ledge, but it worth it, amazing view when you reach the ledge.

We needed more time! Almost made it to the top. We will be back!

Mostly dry and no snow or bugs. Great hike, hard on the knees on the way down.
