The hike starts at the parking lot and the trail head is clearly marked, in a couple hundred yards you will begin your ascent to the top of Mount Si. The trail is well-maintained and dog-friendly, but be aware that there have been reports of bear spottings on the trail (although not very often). Most of the hike is under the shade of the trees which makes it a good hike even in the heat of summer. The trail ends on a rocky surface known as the Haystack, which can be very slippery when wet. You'll need some climbing experience if you plan to get to the top of the haystack.

Great afternoon hike! Can be done out and back in about 4 hours if you don't require many breaks. The incline on the way in was constant and steady but manageable. The hardest part (highly recommend completing) is climbing the back of the largest rock formation at the top. Views like no other! Enjoy!

One of the best hikes in Washington.

It's a fairly difficult climb but the 360 degree views from the top make it well worth it. When you reach the "top" of Si be sure to climb the haystack, that's the true top. A hundred or so feet doesn't seem like it would do much to the view but it undoubtedly does.

Si is a must because of the expansive view of the state. On a clear day one can see Mt. Rainier, Tacoma, Bellevue, Seattle, Lake Washington and much more. And my favorite part, the hike is so heavily trafficked that the animals are not afraid of us humans! Hold your hand up with some nuts or crackers and you'll be swarmed with birds.

This was my first hike I've ever done. It is definitely a difficult trail but reaching the top is rewarding. The view is magnificent. Once I reached the top, I never wanted to leave. I would do this hike again in a heartbeat!

Rewarding hike. Challenging for sure. Rocky terrain, but worth the effort when you reach the top. Smoky view still today

It was a very intense workout especially I was trying to catch one of my athletic friends. It is both fun and challenging. Rock climbing to the top is my favorite part. Would love to go again!
