Amazing hike! The incline is non-stop pretty steep! Must be in decent physical shape or you'll be disliking life, let alone your quads will be on fire for a few days. It's 2.5miles hike to the summit (2,800ft) ... WELL-WORTH it! The views are breathtaking! Views of Seattle and Mt. Rainer on one side, and views of mountains, peaks and valleys on the other.

Very steep but well maintained trail. Basically a 2 mile climb with the summit at almost 2100 feet. I'll definitely go back.

We hiked up on the trail and back on the road. GPS said just over 7 miles. Trail up was a nice workout, and we only saw 2 other groups. We liked the "teaser" views through the trees as we hiked. Views at the top were really great, especially Mt Rainier although we could barely make it out with the haze. Nice quick hike!

I would rate this at a very high moderate level. An elevation gain/loss of 2000+ feet in just over 2 miles is pretty grueling.

trail is steep all the way up. Dry weather has made the trail slippery both going up and down. amazing views at the top when the clouds move out.

great hike but steep and dry conditions make the trail slippery because of dust.

beautiful views at top. outhouses at top. parking at top.

when they say steep, they aren't kidding. We only saw 1 group of hikers on the trail, and they were leaving as we got there. There are great places to stop and get picture along the path. Cell signal was spotty, but there were plenty of people at the top. My first real hike, and it was definitely exciting.
