Confused how this trail even has the rating it has. I filtered local hikes by ones that had good views at the top and this one popped up. It was only minutes away from my house so it seemed like a good day hike, however I did not see one good view the entire time. The picture of rainier on the cover of this hike is apparently from an offshoot trail on the way up which you can only discover from reading other reviews. The posted signs are extremely difficult to understand as well, coming from someone who has done quite a bit of hiking in this area. There are a decent amount of signs but the way the arrows are placed makes it difficult to tell where you should actually go. Aside from that, it’s just a boring trail in general. It’s basically a glorified trail walk with a decent elevation gain, would only recommend if you want a workout and it’s in your backyard like it is for me.
