Great trail. Easy access. Fewer people than some others. I think similar to Si in gain and distance. Lots of snow at top still.

I love this hike. Personally I think it is harder than mt. Si, but that is up for debate. There are a few look outs. It was a great hike! A good work out but not as hard as people say. I made the mistake of taking my friend on it, who has never hiked before, but even he made it eventually. The view is great as well. We made it right when the clouds cleared.

This is a great hike. What I love most about it is the fact that not very many people go on it. The trail is not maintained very well however you can certainly find your way. Pretty much all covered with snow for the rest of the year.

Beautiful hike. It gained about 3200 feet in elevation, and it was around 8.5 miles round trip. We hiked it on a clear day, so we were able to see Mt. Rainer in the distance, and lakes at the bottom. However, we heard that most of the time summit is above the clouds.

The trail is not well marked. Suggest to follow the AllTrails tracker at least at the start. You can easily miss it.

My apple phone registered ~10.5 miles out and back.

A lot of loose rock on the trail requires caution and proper shoes.

Discovery pass for parking.

the trail is not marked but when you get to the fork go right (towards twin falls) and you'll see a little gravel trail for Mt Washington on your left. Once you get to another clearing after about 2.8 miles, go left and the trail continues on your right. The views are magnificent and it was steep and then smooth in all of the right places.

Great views at the top! Would say the first and last miles are the hardest. The first mile is full of very slippery rocks making it a good work out, so patience and caution is needed.
