This was one of the first hikes I completed after moving to the Pacific Northwest and the view at the top was spectacular with its panoramic view of all of the mountains in the area. Highly recommend this hike on a clear day!

Amazon payoff at the end with a 360 degree vista of multiple mountains. Well worth the trek.

Love love love! I could do this hike over and over and never get tired of it.

Well maintained trail with bathrooms at the entrance. Beautiful scenery and solitude. We hiked the trail in October and were treated with vivid fall colors.

Hiked 09/27/17. It was a very clear day and saw Mt, St. Helens, Adams, Rainier, Hood and Jefferson from the top. Mileage is accurate as reported. The parking lot at the trailhead is often full and you my have to park in the Ski Bowl parking area further east on Hwy. 26 and walk back to the trailhead. This adds approximately 2 additional miles round trip to this journey.
