This short out and back is amazing! I will load a picture later. The directions are fairly accurate, Eagle Creek Road/Forest Road 5883 is a decently maintained gravel road. Starts with some deep pot holes and then a lot of washboard areas after that. It's probably about a 40 minute 10+ mile road to the trailhead. Luckily the trailhead parking is well marked on your right hand side. The trail itself was harder, across from the parking there was an old fence post right where the trail started but no sign. We went up on September 23rd and the whole trail was snow, getting up to a foot or more at the higher end. Luckily the blue diamond trail markers are there.
You will reach a fork in the trail about 1/4 mile in, left takes you to Fuji Mtn and right would take you to a much longer Waldo lake trail. Consistent ascent, eventually will start switchbacking. Don't think you've reached the end at the first clearing, although that is a great view point! And then there's another clearing past that one, and you're still not at the top (great view though!). You will really know when you reach the flat top of Fuji and get an amazing vista of the Waldo Lake and the Cascades. The day we went was a bit overcast so couldn't see the tops of the mountains but still amazing!
