Absolutely stunning at the top, if you do this hike and have time go to the lake as well since there is no other way to it.

I love this entire hike and the beautiful drive to get to it! If you'd like an even shorter, more level hike (with kids or elders) you can take the Murphy Creek trail (just beyond the right fork at trailhead). There are several little river spots that are easy to get to off that smaller trail.

Incredible views! Go to the top and you see a 360 degree view of absolute beauty. Hike up is all switchbacks, making the elevation change smooth and gradual. Highly recommend!

Stunning views - wildflowers were in full bloom! Bring lots of water & bug spray. The road up to the trailhead is 7 miles of bumpy, dusty dirt road.

Fabulous views. Well marked trail. HOT when sun is out with little shade so be prepared with plenty of water. Also crazy bad bugs - flies mostly - so bring bug juice!

Lots of wildflowers, great views from the top, Baker to Rainier. Early arrival is a definite plus, as parking is limited, and once the sun is high you are pretty much in the sun the whole hike. Well worth the hike.
