simply unreal.

Trail is very well maintained. A little shy of 4 miles round trip to the lower falls. The coordinates to trail head are: Lat 45deg 54'20" Log 121deg 56'23". NF 3062 ends and you have to go a short distance down 057. Both NF 3062 and 057 are passable with most vehicles - lots of pot holes in gravel road. All in all a very pleasant hike and the falls is a great picnic spot.

Beautiful views, very steep incline with very rocky trails. getting to the top made the journey worth it! Some snow at close to the summit. A little bit muddy but not too bad. Wildflowers eveywhere right now!

Overcast and still sunburnt lol make sure you bring the lotion. I've been to the Visitor center before as a teen, and coming back as an adult to do this hike was amazing. The views you get the whole hike are jaw dropping. The trees in the spirit lake was unreal.

Hiked yesterday. Fantastic views of Adams and right into the crater of St Helens. Very little snow left, and none of it was an issue. There was a section roped off which was signed (dated 5/25) as having snow, but there was none anymore and there was a view point you wouldn't want to miss.

Hot and no water on trail, so pack plenty. And bring sunscreen.

Great hike to see all the different types of forests in Washington. Old Growth isn't as good as some other areas, but worth the hike.

Beautiful views from the top. It's a steep incline the whole way up. The last mile and half or so from the top there is still snow that you have to walk on. Bring a lot of water there is a small steam of water in the beginning of the hike, and almost to the top there's another stream due to the melting snow. Driving to this trailhead is a lot smoother of a drive than the silver star (ed' s trail) side

What a beast at first great hike with stellar views all around

The view up top was worth the hike up, so beautiful! It was a clear day, so we even got a view of what I think was Mt. St. Helens?
