Went early with a couple of friends and loved it. Beautiful diverse environment. Good shading that helped with inclines. I wore tennis shoes and my friends had on hiking boots- I definitely slipped more. Trail is well groomed, but there is a fair share of roots and rocks so you need to pay attention. Once you get to Beaver Pond, there is a large clear cut area, maybe fr wild fire ? But allows beautiful views of the Olympics. FYI there is no pond at the top- and we did encounter just a few motorbikes. When u get to top, there isn’t a big wow reveal. Recommend bringing seating pad.
