Grand Prospect is 4.5 miles up from the trailhead. This trail can be hiked all year round. Expect a lot more solitude on this approach and enjoy some of the best views around of Snoqualmie Valley, Mount Si, Mount Teneriffe, North Bend, and more. The views are some of the best in the Cascade foothills and the trail can be hiked year-round, though it can be snowy in winter and can be muddy/slippery in patches after a good rain. Bring layers as the weather/temp changes.

The trail itself was very well maintained. It was a nice quiet forest setting most of the way. The final viewpoint was pretty, but kind of anticlimactic. I kept walking, assuming it got better, but the trail ended at some clear-cutting and a washed out trail blocked by fallen trees. No snow, except for some packed slush at the viewpoint.

Long hike but worth the view

I've hiked this trail several times, most recently today. The trail is in great shape and is well marked. There is active logging activity after Grand Prospect so hikers cannot continue on towards Rattlesnake Lake.
