HikingMuddy

Trail muddy in most places, but not super slippery. I only saw 7 other people in the 7 or so miles on a drizzly Saturday. Powerlines at the second loop/traverse trail, but wide open skies. Overall, the solitude I enjoy best while hiking on a weekend.

HikingGreat!MuddyOver grown

Great trail! Recommend going on a clear day to catch the views towards the top. The actual peak is not very easy to get to, all trails shows there is a trail but there are a lot of downed trees on the way up and we couldn’t make it all the way. A lot of leaves and water on the trail, so hiking boots or shoes are very helpful.

Large Pretty nice overall. Overgrown in some places but good diversity of scenery and forest. I found the ‘summit path’ at the top but trees are down blocking so it turned into bushwhacking. I don’t recommend that part, take the road until it ends. Good view at the top.

Hiking

We started around 0900 and did not see many other hikers (only 3 cars were there) until we were almost finished. Our 7 mile planned hike turned into 9 because we missed several turns where the trail was very overgrown. We encountered a bear hunter on the trail, and he said he saw evidence of bears around. Thank goodness I had my bear bell! If you want to be one with nature, this is a great trail for you! (But not for me, the bear stress was a bit much haha)

The trail was decent in length but the signage is horrible. Several of the view points were good enough to make it a decent overall hike but they really could make some of the paths more clearly marked.

Today I hiked alone and seen 5 people the entire hike. A couple had on masks. There wasn’t very many signs posted and I found myself off the trail for about 10mins. I turned around and was about to make my way back on track. Lots of overgrown vegetation and no major viewpoint but definitely sights to enjoy along the way. Overall, it was a good hike.

I really enjoyed this trail, but was a bit disappointed about not getting all the way to the top of the mountain. Like a previous hiker has mentioned, there is no clear trail anymore to the very top. But this was a small inconvenience, as you still get a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. The grass gets really tall as you start actually ascending the mountain, and because it was early morning, everything was very wet as well. I recommend wearing hiking pants. There were very few people on the trail, so it is nicely secluded. Overall, the trail is well marked, but it was beneficial to have the AllTrails app open and running. I can see how some might get turned around otherwise. I agree that this trail is only moderately difficult, and would recommend to anyone.

Great hike, pretty challenging. There wasn’t too many people, and everyone was wearing masks. Parking is roadside. There’s space for about a dozen cars; a few were still empty when we left at 11. Part of the ascent goes through very tall grasses, so pants are definitely helpful! We didn’t do the full loop, instead stopped at the electrical transmission towers. You can see them on satellite view. There’s great 5G connections all throughout the hike thanks to the towers at the top. Handy cause the trails were a little confusing.

Nice loop for an easy walk. Glad we had alltrails to keep us on track! Top viewpoint bit was logged and a fair scramble to get to - if there was a trail there before, it's gone now... Loop was great though!

Pretty clear for the most part. A little overgrown on the power line bit, but plenty wide in the woods part of it. Parts are muddy, but not so much that you’ll get your feet soaked, as long as you’re paying attention. Passed only a handful of others during the whole thing. Took about 3 hours with the dog

Decent trail close to Seattle. Nothing super special though. More for exercise and getting outside than views.

Muddy but nice moderate trail. Not much of a view and you can hear highway traffic for much of it. Still, an enjoyable day out.

HikingMuddy

I completed this trail on 6.5.2020. It was pretty easy. Trail conditions were good, some muddy spots. I usually hike alone and this trail was mostly fine, but there was a couple areas it felt a little sketchy to me towards the top in the wooded areas. Closer to the bottom later in the afternoon I ran into plenty of groups, but higher up there wasnt anyone else. Just be safe. Overall I would say this was a nice hike, I really enjoyed the scenery but ultimately not challenging enough for me personally to go again.

Hiked on 5/22, went for 10+ miles without reaching some sort of look out point. Top had been logged out and left, no real end point. Lower levels were well kept and fun to be walk around. If you want more distance than elevation and looking to get in the woods for awhile I would reccomend.

Hiked 5/17 on a Sunday. There is logging going on at the top so weekends are your option for now. Sign is posted at the trailhead regarding partial trail closure during logging activity. No activity on the weekend. Fairly large cleared area at the top but I actually didn’t mind because it opens up the view! And now the wildflowers are taking over. Carpets of wild bleeding hearts and lots of foxglove that will be blooming in a few weeks. Really liked the peace and quiet at the top. Part of the loop on both sides requires walking on the service road though. Not my favorite.

Great trail for beginners. Very little elevation but a good long hike. Ended up actually being about 8.9 miles with a couple turnarounds! If you have never done this follow your map! Easy to take a wrong turn several places. Did this with a 5 year old who walked and complained for about 5 miles and then carried her sleeping body for the rest of it to give you an idea of difficulty! Also watch out for snails on the trail and bring sunscreen!
