    1st Trip here was 6/23 but I'm sure it won't be my last as this is one of my new favorites. Start early if you want to avoid the crowds. Arrived and departed the Lower Trail around 6AM Saturday morning, only 2 other cars parked here at that time. Trail is in amazing condition, you can tell its both well traveled and well taken care of. Beautiful scenery all the way up, with the exception of the cloud layer. No sign of snow until about the split for the "Summer/Winter Routes". About 2.5 Miles in came to a good snow chute headed up the Mountain. Came equipped with Ice Axe, Crampons, and Microspikes but decided just to wear the spikes, as the snow was pretty slushy. It was slippery but not impossible. I also cheated by letting my 85Lb Lab help pull me up the slope. Once up the snow field there was still quite the distance to the summit but its well marked and very a stable path. Reached the summit around 8AM and had it to myself for about a half hour. Enjoyed view of Rainier, Adams, St Helens and Even Hood, before it disappeared in the clouds. Cloud layer was thick around 5500' so view of Lake Cushman or anything else, but the Olympics were well on Display. Also didn't get to see any Mountain Goats (Besides Hero the Yellow Lab) but you could see signs of them all over with fur hanging from all the trees. Passed many people on the way down and once back to the Lower TH was surprised to see upwards of 20-30 cars parked all along the road both up/down of TH.

    Did this as part of a 31 Mile day hike around the St Helens Monument. Very cool experience getting close to the mountain from this angle.
