The gate to the trailhead was closed so plan on adding an additional 2.5 miles each way to your hike, up a logging road.
When you get to the trailhead, there will be an old run-down sign. Look to the right of the sign to see the trail. From there it should be about 7.2 miles to the top. The trail is fairly easy and forgiving until you get to the last 2-2.5 miles where you'll do the majority of your climb. Great views of Mount Jupiter, Two Brother, and Mount Rainier. Lots of loose rock on the trail. Parts of the trail are overgrown but still easy to find your way! Beautiful at the top. We could see Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount St Helens, Two Brothers, The Canal, the Duckabush River. Totally worth it!

Tough but worth the views. It's actually 14.4 miles. Make sure to check if logging road gate will be open (usually is after May 1st). Otherwise add 5 miles to your hike.

Cool trail close to Kitsap county. The trail is not maintained and at first glance the real trail head is next to the sign and goes to the right its very tiny at the start we didn't notice it right away and we wasted about an hour or so so look out for that. We went on October 25th 2015. The entrance was closed due to hunting season so it adds a mile and half to the trail which wasn't bad. There aren't any toilets so come prepared, lots of water. Would go again watch out for loose gravel and there's a lot of fallen trees in certain areas would go back.
