Beautiful views. Flowers unfortunately are dying and not in full bloom anymore. Some shade on trail depending on time you do it. Bees are a bit pesky and do not leave you bee very easily, literally followed my friend for a few minutes before it left her alone.

This has pretty amazing views throughout the entire trail. Highly recommended if in Mount Rainier and heading to that area of the park.

Great loop with wonderful views. Pretty heavily trafficked but lots of people wearing masks. Fun lakes along the trail. Even some kids brave enough to swim.

The trail is heavily trafficked, especially in the afternoon or mid-day. Going counter-clockwise you will get a better view of the mountain, and you won’t have to wait for the best scenery. Not too hard, but the inclines do burn the glutes!

Fairly easy loop with beautiful views of the valley and Mt. Rainier. No bears when I was there but it was pretty early in the morning. Parking area was nearly full when I left at 815a (Sunday) so be prepared to come early.

Early Saturday, the weather was beautiful and hardly any people when we started, much busier as we were heading out. Mostly masked and considerate hikers. Flowers were amazing. My first ever hike!

Stunning - one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever been on. Went four weeks ago and got eaten alive by mosquitoes, but they’re gone now.

Beautiful trail! Still a lot of flowers out and gorgeous views. Not too crowded when we started at 8 a.m but ran into a lot of (mostly masked) people on the last leg.
