I don't agree that it's easy, or suitable for all skill levels. I hope I can make it all the way up some day. What I saw was lovely.

Fun short trail. Decently steep! Not much for a view at the top during the regular day hours

In looking at all the otber reviews it seems like I wasnt on the same trail as them. Very steep. More steep than Rattlesnack Ridge.. Lots of rocks and roots to step over. No views....except for two spots.... flat open plain on south end with a metal picnic table in the middle of no where which allowed you to partially see Mt Rainer. There is also a cut off that does have a spectacular view of Mt Rainier on the southeast end.
Tbe peak had two wooden benches no view but was a nice place ro eat.
South loop had an easy smooth gravel walk but if you stay on it....it will curve to the left and comes to a straight up climb until rejoining the peak trail again.
Another hiker said she spotted a cougar.
Active trail with other hikers present but not packed.
No bathroom. Pot a potty.

Short but super steep, in less than a mile you go up 1000 feet in elevation, really tough cardio workout if you do it nonstop easy pace all the way to the top.

I was a bit disappointed in the views but it was a great workout. The trail is well maintained and there are plenty of other hikers.
