Was very foggy and the heavy rain prevented us hitting the peak, but some great views before the fog. Once you pass the Cross the crowds drop to almost nothing.

Great hike and the view is amazing. It can be a little muddy when it rains, but still a good hike.

Don't give up when you reach the tram station, keep going til you hit the top!

A little over an hour hike from my hotel in downtown to the tram. Not terribly steep but a good uphill hike on the entire trail. I spent $10 (actually a $100) and got a free trip down on the tram.

Hiked to the tram and back. It had been raining ever so slightly that morning, but we decided to hike it anyway. About a quarter of the way up it got suddenly nasty. We kept climbing, convincing ourselves we would simply take the tram back down from the top. After a grueling, cold, and VERY wet hike up the mountain, we find the tram has closed early due to inclement weather! We were already soaked to the bone, but had to other option--we set off back down the hill. Although we were dripping from every square inch of our persons, the hike was a fun experience none the less! I believe it would have been even better experiencing the hike on a dry, sunny afternoon!

A bit slushy but a good trail, especially if you continue past the tram to Gastineau Peak (2 more miles) or Mt. Roberts (3 more miles). Epic views of the Chanel, lots of wildlife. Snow patches even in August but the trail was clear of snow.

A great alternative to paying the $30+ for the round trip tram ticket. Be prepared for uphill. Went in mid July and there was not much mud on the trail. Spend $10 in the gift shop to get a ride down on the tram!
