The hut gets 5 stars - the trail/route up, however, is a means to an end, as it’s just a pretty boring logging road. There were 5 of us who hiked this as an overnighter, and it was definitely up the whole time, and we were in pretty hot weather carrying quite a bit of weight. The hut was so fun - we played games, drank wine and enjoyed each other’s company by the fire. Once we got up there, we did navigate and explore down to Anderson Lake through back country expert territory, using this app to follow a “trail” that was non-existent. Probably won’t do that again, but did make it to the lake. I’d love to come back and do this as a snow shoe this winter!

Hiked to the High Hut on Monday, 3/5/18. Good conditions, saw 28 people on the trail, most were coming down. Trail is well groomed. View at the top was awesome, even though Rainier was in the clouds. Gaia gps had the trail at 8.12 miles, round trip, from the lower parking area.

This is a five star snow shoe. Some of the lower rating are off season as these are pretty much for the snow shoe trails. If I am not mistaken its like the only real snow shoes trail system in out area. Any trip you take is worthy whether you see Rainier or not. On Sunday the road was free and clear of any snow to the 3000' level. This does change daily and can change quickly so be advised. The snow was a tad wet but there was no rain due to a Pineapple Express. The hike to the High Hut is a steady up hill grind but take your time and you will be fine. It takes roughly 1.5 to 2 hours with a steady pace. Here you can take off your boots and relax. There is probably some tea in the drawer and a tea kettle always sits on the stove. There is a fireplace if you feel the need. Usually during the day the huts are pretty warm anyways. Enjoy this awesome place as well as take care of it as its operated only by volunteers who spend a great deal of time keeping the huts and trails in tip top shape. Thanks MTTA!

This trail is part of the Mt Tahoma trails association. There are several other trails in the area. Looks like a great place to go snowshoing in a month or so.

Awesome hike, we went in the summer. Didn't see another person. Found the lake. Wish it was a little bit better marked, but a beautiful view and if your not afraid of going up for a long time (total exertion wearing a toddler), and looking for an awesome workout, this fits the bill! Can't wait to go again!
