Beautiful trail! Kid friendly! Road to campground is closed but you can park on side of road!

This is a great trail for those with toddlers! Really simple hike in and out. Lots of shade from trees. There’s some large beaches on the trail that are easily climbed over or under. Not too heavily trafficked but it could be because of this whole Covid thing.

Looking for experienced partners to summit this summer! (Late June, early July). Anyone interested? Let’s talk! rubiodavid1981@gmail.com

Two summits the past two years, my number one piece advice for prospective summiteers is get in the best shape of your life. Second time I was in much better shape and it was WAY more fun. The best test I can recommend is, put 55 pounds on your back and get from the bottom of Mt. Si to the top in 2 hours or less. The following day, put 25 pounds on your back and get up in 1:45 or less. If you can do that without feeling like you are going to die, then you are ready. Enjoy this climb, it is otherworldly. Be thorough and methodical with your safety equipment.

Fantastic hike! You access the trail through the Ohanapecosh campground, but you’ll see the road into the campground is closed. You are allowed to park in the side of the road and walk in, since it is still open. It’s an easy hike with slight elevation changes here and there. Gorgeous views of the falls!!!!

Great Hike! Some blow down but very manageable. Quite a few other hikers but trail is very wide and easy to pass. We put in at Ohanapecosh Campgrounds which were closed but short walk to trailhead.

This isn’t so much a review as a quick update based on our experience today. The entrance to the main road leading to the trailhead is currently closed to traffic. We ran into a park ranger entering this road, who told us that the road is tentatively going to open back up on June 4th. This was his best guest. We still went ahead and hiked down the road which is open to out and back hikers and cyclists. It would have been a little far for us to hike up to the trailhead, so we hiked down the road for a mile and trail blazed through a quarter mile of woods down to the white river. The river was very low, so we elected to hike down the river bed about 4 miles instead of following the road. Pretty stunning views of rainier despite not being on the actual trail. Can’t wait to come back when it’s open!

I would recommend this for a day hike. Falls are amazing and it’s a rather easy hike. There is a great bridge lookout and you can extend you hike due to several connecting trails.

No snow at the campground and no snow all the way to the suspension bridge. You can still cross the river via the log bridge. Beautiful waterfalls and lots to see.

The road is close campgrounds are close. we hiked in anyways and it didn't disappoint us. we started at the campground and walked in and took silve falls trail . pass the hot springs to the falls was much better than taking the path by the bridge. we went in by the bridge and it was alot of elevation and challenges with down trees we came out the other side and it was a easy one .

great hike! passed silver fall trail, passed hot springs on the way! definitely worth it!

Really beautiful hike. Loved the waterfalls. The hot springs were more like puddles, but still really cool to see!

Missed the Summit by a few hundred yards. Two day hike. Did not acclimate well. Outstanding views. Terrain not too challenging for a beginner mountaineer like me. Definitely coming back

The road was closed.

Amaizing views! Just a beautiful place!

Mostly flat with a little incline in points. Just quite long. The snow made it somewhat difficult.

The entire area is abundant in natural beauty. It was sometimes confusing as to which path/trail should be taken, but it REALLY didn’t matter since the scenery was spectacular and no trail was too challenging

Road is closed about 8 miles before the trail head where fairfax forest reserve rd meets National forest development road.

This hike was back to September 2019. We did counterclockwise which basically did not see the Mt Rainer until we got to the top. It was a little bit foggy and cold during the hike. And it was crazy windy once we got close to Mt Rainer, and I was speechless when I saw it. Tremendously gorgeous. Love this hike!!!

Skyline Trail is a great intermediate snowshoe trail for humans only. Give yourself extra time and pay close attention to your pace. Rainier is full of surprises and is notorious for extending trip plans by a few hours when things get socked in. Beautiful views are out there and unique stratovolcano terrain await.
