Take I-90 east. Exit 45. Turn left. Follow the Forest Road for ~3miles. Road is gravel but there is a parking lot, at the trailhead, with video-surveillance. Recreation Pass required.

One of the most well kept trails I've ever hiked here in Washington. Gradual elevation change most of the way until like the last half mile. great views from the top from both sides.

What a great view at the summit! But!! It's very very challenging hike.

Check it off the list. Great views of Mt Rainier, McClellan Butte, Mt. Defiance and Mason Lake. Harder than Mt. Si because hiking up the last mile is super steep and rocky. I'm not usually afraid of heights but this one was a little stressful ;) Lots of bugs at the top, including butterflies :)

Very steep--if you are already up there, I would suggest doing Defiance Peak or Mason Lake instead! They both have better views (in my opinion) and are less steep.
