Good hike up. Trail is well kept, and it still had snow up by Carter Falls today.

This trail is located shortly after the Carter Falls. As this trail is the continuation of the Carter Falls trail it has the same steep inclines, and great views.

Really steep after the first quarter to half mile or so. The forest is pretty. The falls were fine, but would rather have had a view of Rainier as the payoff for all the elevation gain. Saw lots of people headed up with little kids. Wonder if they made it to the top?
