Highlights:
-Hiked it on the 14th: weather and views were beautiful. Wore shorts and running shoes.
-Took my kids with me, the youngest hiker being 3. We had no issues hiking the entire route.
-No snow on the trail, just a little mud where it had melted.

Downside:
The line into the Mt Rainier Park was long between 1200-1400. We waited an hour to get into the park.
