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.

The climb from the junction with the Ira Spring trail justifies the "hard" rating, but the views and the wildflowers make it worthwhile!

There is basically no snow left on the trail. Nice view of Mt. Rainier but beside that nothing special. Very mellow hike with steep incline at the end.

This hike was awesome. The trailhead was easy to find. Parking was easy. The hike starts of nice and easy and gets harder as you make your way up. After you split off to go to Bandera Mountain at the top, it gets much more difficult. Be prepared to get dirty climbing rocks. The view while climbing is breathtaking. Overall the hike was great!

Note: The map application calculates the total to 6.6 Miles. But that is incorrect. The tails is ~8 Miles out and back.

The first 2.8 Miles are relatively easy. The last ~1 Mile is an incline and moderate to difficult depending on your experience and stamina.

Great views.
