We were lucky in that the sky was relatively clear over the peak of The Mountain- To say the views from the trail were compelling understates the grandeur that was in front of us .

Amazing. Hard. Beautiful...

Green everywhere.

Easy one. But the flowers in the summer are so amazing. Don’t miss it. Perfect for family hiking with kids.

Breath taking views almost throughout the entire trail. Crowded but tolerable. I did hike this on Labor Day and it was very clear day. Almost no shade so bring a hat and sunscreen. Mostly paved to a point and then all dirt and rocks. Recommend going further up to High Skyline. Better views of Rainier. Bathroom at Panoramic point. Bring water. Absolutely spectacular how close you get to Rainier. Would do it again.

Totally love this hike. I've done this about 5 times now and am always in awe of the view on a beautiful clear day. The 14 mile drive on a gravel road up there is slow and not so fun but then realize it was well worth it for a wonderful hike. This time the trail was dry and very few wild flowers left to look at. One of my favorites!

We did this hike yesterday and unfortunately I forgot to turn on the record on my AllTrails app. It took us 6 hours going up and 3 and some change coming down. It was a fairly easy hike up to pebble creek.... now after that... the snow fields will tend to crush your soul if you are not well equipped and prepared. I highly recommend some sort of crampons. We used micro spikes and trekking poles and we did fine but it sure was tough. Other than that while you’re hiking on the snow fields you have beautiful views of the top of rainier along with being able to turn around and see views of Adams, hood, and St. Helens. Camp muir was great and we even got to go inside one of the base camp snacks and warm up before descending! I will say just before you hit your destination around 200m or so there are some crevasses this time of year that have opened up you’ll either have to walk around at a point or go across. Nothing to big though. Make sure to have fun, bring sun screen and snacks! Enjoy

Hard but worth it. Did this on 9/1. Started at 8. Took us around d 4 hours. Crampons and poles helped. Micro spikes will be good enough. It was cloudy when we got up to camp Muir. Would like to do it again on a sunny and clear day. Carry lot of snacks and water.

my first time being this high up. was just going to go to panorama point ,but decided you know what I'm just going to go for it. made it up in around 4 hours and 1.5 hours back down. was an amazing hike but recommend doing early in day. snow is very bright bring lots of sunscreen as I ran out.

Completed in 9/2:. Snow field get soft in the afternoon. Suggestion to go early and have crampons and poles. Completed round trip in under 4 hours with little weight.

Very challenging loop and a great hike when you are short for time or just want a trail that’s not packed in the summer months. I also recommend arriving early to get parking at Longmire Lodge. Mostly assent and descent through shaded forest with a couple really great wide open views up at the top.

very nice paved trail with many options to go on other trails if you want and it was absolutely georgeous!! Paradise in is right there and so much fun to hang out in!!

Fun as usual it’s better to go early and beat the crowd

We started from the trailhead at 7:15, which was just what we needed given that it was a clear, crisp, wind-free day. Our microspikes and trekking poles came in very handy, and we'd recommend them for anyone who doesn't care to slip-slide through the snowfield. Another bonus of leaving early was that only nine people were at Camp Muir when we arrived, and no more than another 25 or so reached the camp during the hour we sat there at a leisurely lunch. The panorama to the south when it's clear, as it was today, is unbeatable: Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, Mount Hood, and all the intervening peaks and valleys are splendid to behold. The hike itself is quite taxing--it took us nearly four hours to make the climb--but, as everyone else has commented, the views at the end are worth it.
