Loved this trail! The view is entertaining the whole way up and keeps you motivated to keep climbing. Definitely challenging in a few patches, but if you love breathtaking views, it’s well worth it. Perfect spot to watch the sunset!

I actually would consider this hike closer to a hard than a moderate. The views were spectacular! I especially love any hike that has views of both Adams and Rainier. Hiking boots are a must on the way down. The trail has a lot of loose rocks and dirt. I was fine, but it was stressful for my friend who was only in tennis shoes. It was super windy at the top, so if you’re hiking in mid November, be sure to wear layers and a warm hat and gloves.

Gorgeous November morning in Yakima Canyon. The views on this one back into the Canyon and beyond are stellar. Good incline of a hike during the first and last thirds, but the middle eases up through a more level saddle. Definitely recommend trekking poles, this trail has some loose sections of dirt that slide around a bit on the way down. Go get it!
