    Tom Popel reviewed Jefferson Ridge Trail # 808

    5 months ago

    The road is a little rough going up to the trail, so I do recommend you drive an SUV up there. My wife is 6+ months pregnant so we skipped the first half of the trail and continued to driven up the road until we hit the gate. Walk up that road past the gate 10 minutes and you’ll see the trail cross the road. We continued 2.5 miles up to some unbelievable views of the brothers and Rainier. Highly recommend this trail!

    Fantastic trail! Highly recommend getting there early though, as it fills up fast. We got there at 7:30 am and the parking lot was almost full. The trail is steep nearly the whole way so you'll get a sweat on. But it's totally worth it for the views and wild flowers. Mason Lake is nice, but again, busy with campers.

    Couple of tips: again go early, sunscreen, it's exposed at the top and if you go in the afternoon you'll get strong sun. Also 30 min away is no boat brewing company (at 90 and 18 west), worth going to after this hike, plus its dog friendly..

    Great trail, easy to hike with the dog. Best go early as the trail gets busy later in the day. The lake has amazing views of rainier, and still has snow at the top.
    The 4 mile road leading up to the trail head is pretty rough, so recommend an SUV. A sedan or hatch will struggle
