Be careful driving to the TH right now. Went to the trailhead and turned back. The road to the trailhead right now is very sketchy and covered with snow on the approach. Do not attempt now without traction tires / chains / cables / Autosock. Consider parking a bit lower before the TH rather than driving all the way. Driving up we got stuck but using AWD we were able to continue. Parts of the road have a very steep drop and the road is slippery. Once we got to the TH it was packed with snow and we heard more snow was coming so we decided to turn back. We used Autosocks coming back down which helped!

Cannot get to the trailhead, so parked a couple miles away and walked to the trailhead. Only made it 2.5 ish miles up the trail until the snow was far above my knees and we decided to turn back. There weren’t any views except at the trailhead, but I’m not sure if it’s just because we didn’t get all the way to the peak!

HikingGreat!Icy

Went Sunday 11/8. Roads were clear on drive up, but lots of potholes on the road up to trailhead. Good passing with masks during COVID. Snow on the ground but not too icy and didn’t need spikes. By the time we got down, a lot of snow had melted.

Did this hike on Wed 11/11, beautiful hike through a snowy forest. Moderate difficulty, not too steep or long, but the snow makes things a little more interesting. There was snow throughout, but others had hiked up recently and the trail was well defined. No more than a foot of snow at the deepest. Microspikes helped but probably not necessary, yet. The trail doesn't have much for views on the way up, just beautiful forest. Views at the peak were nice, would've been better on a clear day. It's cold up there, so be prepared. The dirt road up was a little slushy and will probably be not accessible by non 4WD/AWD vehicles for much longer.

Beautiful hike with 360 degree mountain views . Well maintained trails and not too steep. Some snow but doable in hiking boots. Took us an hour and forty minutes up, hour and ten back.

Pretty busy hike, but has amazing views and is a gentle incline the whole way so makes sense. Restroom at the Trailhead was closed and the road in was pretty potholey. That said, there were Prius's and Teslas at the Trailhead.

Great trail just after it snowed as the forest and peak were spectacular. Some steep portions of the trail, used poles and micro spikes til 1/2 way down to be able to walk briskly without slipping. Road up is pretty narrow and a few bad potholes but not too bad.

Hiked Beckler today (Halloween!). Arrived at the trailhead around 10AM and only a few cars in the lot with plenty of parking spots available (lot was a bit more full by mid afternoon but still plenty of room). Road to the trail wasn't bad but there a few big potholes here and there-any car should be fine. Dirt road was about 7-8 miles long and this forest service road can be easy to miss off of HWY 2. Overall, the hike was a gradual ascent, steep at times. I didn't find it too strenuous but enough to get a good workout in. Encountered a little snow about a mile from the summit, and then around 1/2-3/4 mile to the top its more expansive but pretty packed down. I had microspikes with me but didn't end up using them. Views from the top are well worth it-the views of Glacier Peak are stunning! If you look closely on a sunny day, you can spot Mount Baker!

There is a large, fallen tree blocking the forest road 4.7 miles from the trailhead.

Trail was covered with ice and snow, except for the first 1-2 miles. Microspikes definitely helps! The view on the top was fabulous.

HikingBugsGreat!

Loved this hike!! Great workout, definitely winded during this one. Soft pine needle path for the second half (ish) and the view from the top of the peak is breath taking. Hiked to the top in an hour and a half and made it back down in a little over an hour. Highly recommend this hike for a good work out and views with not many people on the trail. I’m assuming the 6.6 mile gravel potholey road to the trail head scares some people away.
