This route was extremely off-trail and very dangerous. The non-trail segments were not well marked and required difficult exposed scrambles. The trail was very beautiful but the description to the route was very vague and we lost the route multiple times, in addition the first leg has no available water until you hit the glacier. Overall, I would not recommend this trail for anyone who is not an experienced alpinist.

Great trail! Back packed in and made camp. It was raining the first day so we decided to hike to the top the next day. The views were amazing! Would recommend over and over!

Great hike. Surprised how flat it was minus the last mile. Great day hike. I’ve never seen so many ladybugs my life though at the top.

Beautiful hike, one of my favorites. Hiked 7/29/19 with bluebird skies, amazing views of Adams and Rainier. Lightly trafficked, wildflower meadows galore. This took us 4.5h RT with a nice 40m lunch up top. Lady bugs everywhere at the peak, minimal mosquitos. Trail is well maintained. Absolutely worth it! Warnings: add 20-30m of drive time to google estimates. Download area maps and screenshot directions as you will lose service. Access road is very bumpy with large rocks- consider vehicle with high ground clearance. Most of this hike is easy but the last mile should absolutely be rated “hard”; a steep grade with lots of loose sand/dirt/rocks. Hiking poles recommended esp for the way down. Intermittent shade. None the last mile. The app says this is a 7mi hike, 3 different phones clocked this at ~9mi, a more accurate estimate I believe. Very isolated, consider first aid pack, extra water, 10 essentials.

We hiked on 7/25 and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day. Tons of wildflowers along the trail. Easy hike until last mile which is rocky and steep, but worth it as the view at the top is spectacular. Mt. Adam’s and Mt. Rainier both visible. Swarms of lady bugs at the top. This was a wonderful hike!

Wow - a beautiful hike leading to amazing views. Probably the best hike I’ve ever done. The road getting in is long and a little rough the last couple miles, and particularly the last half mile. The trail was quite easy until the last mile and a half from the top...but the top is spectacular and worth all the effort.

It was overcast when I started and then started raining. The parts of the trail I could see were very cool. Had to turn back near the top due to wind and rain. Would love to do again when it wasn’t raining.

Hiked 9.6 miles on July 16, 2019 from the Walupt Lake Campground up Nannie Ridge to sheep lake and then turning north on the PCT to Cispus Pass. Mosquitos were present on the first few miles of the trail but not miserably aggressive. They seemed to thin out after Sheep Lake. Saw a deer just north of Sheep Lake. Cispus Basin is beautiful but by the time we rolled in to the basin (7pm-ish) most of the campsites were taken - there were lots of PCT through-hikers. We had to go to a third alternative location, and even then, we settled for less than ideal real estate. Temps were in the 50s during the day and high 30s at night. It rained all night. Trail is really great condition overall. There were lots of water sources flowing off the mountain, so we really didn't have to carry water. I imagine that many of the smaller sources will be dried up by mid August.

My family and I did this last weekend and had a blast. We camped at the Lily basin Junction which was nice. There were minimal bugs and great water nearby. There were some snow crossings the next day and we did these in regular shoes without any other gear just fine. The scramble to the summit is somewhat rocky and was a little exposed for my 72 year old father and 11 year old daughter but everyone got to the summit just fine. The trip down was easy and the view of the mountains was stunning. Adams and Rainier kept dipping behind clouds but were out while we were on the summit :)

Did this 7/2. Reached the 3 mile mark and decided to turn around due to the steep snow and rocks. Probably could have continued without a dog but I had trouble keeping her in the right direction while maintaining my footing. The trail is very well marked and maintained and the scenery is fantastic. Will do again someday later in the season.

The road is open to Conrad Meadows. However, the bridge at Conrad Creek is damaged and the trail has many blowdowns. There were over 100 downed trees with several large logjams across the trail making travel difficult. FS said they will begin trail work in a few weeks.

This trail is not a trail. At least the way it is shown on the map here. Perhaps from 2304 there is but not as shown above. However, I did bushwack up 3 miles for kicks. It sucked. And it was awesome. Be prepared if you're going to follow this map. Also know that a local has claimed the trailhead as his private property so be prepared to park by Kilborn creek.
