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. Discover Pass required.

Well-maintained trail. Make sure to go on a sunny day to get the best views up top. some clouds were obstructing the view for Mt Rainer.

it's a great hike! the trail is in good condition and there wasnt too many people when i went (i started at 9am). the view at the top was amazing! the sun was out and you could see Rainier clearly! the hike or climb to the top of Mt. Si is exposed, but is worth it to do if you are comfortable with a little climb.

Great trail, well maintained, just a bit muddy. Definitely bring a light jacket, gets chilly at the top. There’s a pretty intense rock climb that’s just short of needing climbing gear. So be prepared if you want to get to the very top, it’s a good 40 to 50 feet. Rain shower moved in quick and got the rocks all slippery, a little sketchy.

A tough one but a good one! Beware upon entering the parking lot, there are some craters youll have to drive over! It's brief though. The trail starts gaining elevation early on through the dense forest at the base of the mountain. This goes on for about a mile until you reach a junction where you can continue to take the mount si trail or branch off and the talus loop. youll want to keep left to go to mount si. About 2 miles in or so the trail finally flattens out a bit, but don't let this fool you. This short-lived, welcomed break is brief and the trail's elevation gain becomes much more serious all the way to the summit. Through a series of switchbacks, you'll certainly begin to sweat. The trail tries to open up to some views of nearby mountains but it's still very forested. Eventually, .3 miles from the summit there is a map that ensures you are close. Shortly after the trail opens to the rocky summit where you'll come to realize that all of that hard work paid off. This was a Tuesday, with some showers in the forecast for the afternoon, so while I was not the only one at the summit, it was not that busy

I enjoyed this trail a lot on a beautiful sunny day! A lot of tree coverage so not too much exposure to sun except at the top! Not a hard trail as far as the path. No streams to walk in or difficult navigating. Great hike up and trail run down! Wasn’t too busy!

This was a fantastic hike! I got there at 5:45am and there were only 3 other cars and only saw one person on the trail on the way up! So quiet and beautiful! Tough hike but worth it. Try for a sunny day so you can see the views!

I would like to recommend the primitive trail, if you want to make the trip interesting but definitely it is not for beginners.

Definitely a hard hike but worth it. The view at the top is absolutely gorgeous! We went on a clear sunny day, you could see Mt. Rainier and the cascades, a beautiful lake and more.

This is really hard trail but the view is worth it. There are quite a few bees everywhere so be careful
