This hike was absolutely gorgeous and worth the elevation climb once you get to the top! Stick left at the forks, we ran into a few people that advised us of the right direction thankfully. Once You get to the top You can see all 3 mountains and as long as you're not afraid of heights it's an incredible view!! The bugs were AWFUL! Bring long sleeves and pants even I swear I would rather be hot than bit by horseflys ! And lots of deep eood bug spray. The trail was mostly shady and narrow at points and steep at other points, other than the bugs I would highly recommend !! Also it's a 4 mile hike total

One of my favorite hikes near Mt Rainier! For a longer hike, you can take a right at the fork shortly after the lake and just before the trail to the summit and connect this to the Glacier view or Goat lake trails making it around 10-12 mikes out and back.

Did a solo hike on this trail. It had the perfect amount of everything in a short hike. There's a few trees down on the trail that you have to climb over. Hardly anyone there, got to the top and views are stunning. I had to wait for the clouds to burn off but when they did it was one hell of a view. The bugs on this trail are no joke. Bring lots of bug spray. I sprayed every 20 mins or so and still was eaten alive. There's no signs whatsoever. Follow along the lake and about 1000 yards you'll come to where to go right or left. Go left to arrive at beljica.

This hike was beautiful. I little steep for my little kids at time but the top was well worth it. The wildflowers were incredible. I do wish I had seen the reviews about mosquitoes. I have NEVER seen more mosquitoes in my life. Bring bug spray and long sleeves. My kids were even bitten through their clothes.

Still a bit of snow between the lake and Mount Beljica, but fairly easy to follow the trail. Amazing views from the top!

An amazing hike with a rewarding view of 4 different mountains on top of Mt. Beljica, on a clear day.

Did this one several years back during the rain. This tie sunny day. Took my dog and had a great time. There were some bugs, but not enough to use repellent. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. Take the first right after the gravel pit and at the end, the TH is in the trees ahead of you. I recommend a high clearance vehicle, but I have seen some sedans there. The views are worth this trip, especially if you climb Mt Beljica.

Great hike with great views. Road is rough getting to trail head but manageable. There were tons of bugs but overall well worth the views.

Lots of bang for the buck. When you get to the top, and it took me about an hour and a half, you get views of Mount Rainier, Mount Saint Helens, Mount Adams, and Mount Baker. (I think I have those last two mountains correct, but you can certainly see 4 in a row all from north to east at the same time). Lake Christine in the middle of the short hike is beautiful. Is fairly small and quaint, and there was a fine no-brainer camping site on the bank.

I will be recommending this hike as a great "bang for your buck" type adventure. good for small children to adults, easy and great scenic views at the top and along the way. like Christine offered a good rest stop and view about half way, bring that bug spray tho. at the summit on a clear day you can see rainier, Adams, hood and st Helens. there are a few places to camp on the forest road leading to the trailhead and at the trailhead itself. camping there, then heading out early the next morning allowed for us to have the trail up and summit to ourselves for a while. passed many people on the way down and arrived to a then full parking lot.
pros: short hike w a great pay off!
cons: mosquitoes, rough but manageable forest road to get there, and lots of other hikers.

Awesome trail. Will be visiting again soon. I'd recommend bug spray.
