Awesome trail! Not as hard as it's made out to be, I went up in February and could not even finish the hike because the snow at the top was so bad and had destroyed the trail. But amazing during the summer

Very fun day hike with good variation of scenery. Good and steady ascent but very long so stay well hydrated.

5/23/2017 (Tuesday) -- Sunny, cloudless, 72-76F in the woods, 80+F in city. Cool, not hot in the woody trail. Light traffic. Trail is in good condition. Mud and snow are gone. Downfalls are partly cleared. On the logging road as a detour, Mt Rainier is fully in sight.

Great route either starting from the west or east if you are smart about times to avoid the crowds. Trail is soft ground for the most part, well shaded, and great lookout stops along the way. Creek at about mile three (coming from the west) is flowing strong right now for any dog companion folks out there.

Note that as of 5/14 the trail is closed at Prospect Overlook due to timber industry work so cannot connect end to end at the moment. Check their website before attempting to cross through to see whether it has reopened. I ran this and still got a good ~8 mile out and back despite the closure.
