Awesome clear sunny day for a Dec weekend. The trail is totally clear except at the top with small patches of snow. Lovely day and a lovely hike.

Best done in the morning to avoid snowmelt / mud. At mile 3.2 , trail is covered in hard pack snow and continues to deepen to shin deep at snowqualmie valley overlook. Traction such as kahtoola chains or glacier chains are highly recommended. Would need more traction to ascend the haystack (crampons) as there is mostly ice after approximately 10 meters of scrambling. The view was perfect of rainier the olympics and even Seattle and Bellevue were in view. Beautiful forests and views scattered throughout the hike. There were ~25 people out. Total time to snowqualmie overlook : 1:40. Total time car to car 2:50 with approximately 15 minutes for photo breaks. Enjoy!!!!

Went on Wednesday this week and the weather was perfect. Beautiful snow up top... I’m a bit of a newby to the PNW (I’m used to the flat lands of the Midwest) so it took me 3 hours up and about 2 to get down. Well worth it though. Will definitely do it again in the summer!

Mount Si is quite a beast! Very steep, lots of switchbacks, well trafficked. It took us 2:20 to get up and 1:20 down. We spent nearly an hour exploring the rocky area around the summit. It wasn’t clear enough today to see Rainier or the cities, but the view was still stunning. We brought one of our pups; there are lots of dogs out on this trail. We definitely recommend this day activity.
