Mostly gravel and at an incline. Don’t go for the views. Some mud on the path that is not gravel. Not too busy and could maintain social distance. Would hike again.

Well maintained trail. Parking lot open. Would only go on a sunny day. Couldn’t see much of rainier. Without seeing rainier the trail to me wouldn’t be worth it! Slightly muddy

Well-maintained parking and trail, but the drive was more beautiful than the actual views of this hike, bathrooms inaccessible. Great if you want the exercise, sad when you get to the top, slightly confusing to navigate even with trail markers; kept weaving in and out onto the gravel hill. Good for moderate/beginners.

The parking lot is currently closed due to Covid-19. There still was a good amount of cars parked next to the fence so clearly people are still hiking but it'd say to do so at your own risk.

Nice dry trail today...quite a few people on the trail. I didn't look at the trail map well and after getting to the top with my three kids we took a different trail but it took us down to the park area for Mt. Peak! So be careful which trail you use... because there are a few!

We hike on February 22, 2020. The driving to the trailhead is clear of dirt road or pot holes. It is easily accessible. The trail is snow free and in good condition. The trail starts with about 1.5 miles of concrete road walking like on a drive way. I would recommend walking clockwise to avoid some sections of steep trail. I will rate the trail 2 stars because it does not give you a good view at the top of Pinnacle peak or along the trail.

Great short trail with awesome incline. Definitely gets your heart beating. The gravel trail up is deceiving, once it ends after a mile or so you're headed into greenery with even greater incline. There's not really a view at the top but there is a nice seating area at the top to sit, relax, and meet new folks. Pros: Great workout, clean trail, great facilities Cons: Not very many views, gravel trail leading up to the treeline is not very exciting.

Good training hike. No great vistas but well maintained and lots of options for difficulty. **Note: Carl Magnasson trail is closed**

Super easy, up and back trail with a myriad of networked trails to choose from. Fairly easy to go straight up and straight down. Very nice parking lot with bathrooms at the bottom.

Nice after work trail / easily done in 1-1/2 to 2 hours. A bit of a work out/climb. Not a lot of views, some “peekaboos” of Rainier. Lots of side trails to meander and explore. We’ll be back!

It’s a great trail!! There is some really pretty views if you use the side trails. Don’t worry you wound get lost on them going up they all lead to the top. It’s great way to get in shape.

The trail is great but not marked and a bit of a nightmare to follow. The elevation gain was great and it's a great workout.

A lot of switch backs.. Tried to follow the map but wasn’t on point.. Today Sep. 29, 2019 was muddy but not so slippery.. Lots of incline for a good workout.. Would go again..
