The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington is a National Forest extending more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range from the Canada–US border to the northern boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.

This was absolutely fabulous. Great scenery of all kinds. Interesting bridges, waterfalls, an interesting sign pointing you to a Toilet about 3.5 miles in, (didn't get that reference) but it led us to a nice place to rest alongside the river with lots of great rocks for those of you who are rockhounds! Gonna go back and go right instead of left and up to Echo Lakes! Saw an eagle, geese, ducks, chipmunks, tons of Elk had been thru. Great trail and we lucked out on a beautiful day.

You'll hit snow a mile or so into the hike. By mile 3 it is deep and you start to fall through. Tried to take the Talapus cutoff to Olallie... cutoff trail is very deep in snow, and the creeks are running high with many crossings are sketchy. FYI there is no bridge when the cutoff trail hits the creek. You have to walk up or down the river to find a place to cross. We lost the trail here. Be careful.

The length use easy but there trail is steep, muddy in places. Well worth the climb

Actually we did this a week ago.. No snow..if you do the loop and cross the falls.. it does get a bit rocky.. but not horrible

Absolutely stunning hike. Personally I think it should be rated moderate over easy. Its only a little bit over a mile but very steep. The view was incredible. Definitely recommend.
