Decent hike and the fireplace is kind of cool... the viewpoint is disappointing though.

This is a nice morning hike if you have a few hours to explore and enjoy nature. As a hike it can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be. Large portions of it used to be an old road used for jeeping so it isn't the most diverse trail however the nature around can be very interesting and the layout of the mountain itself makes for a very interesting hike. It is a easy to moderate trail but you can adjust that as you set your own pace. These trails and really the whole area in general would be dog friendly and great for trail running.

The hike was great.
There's a few trails there, we actually went to Bullitt Fireplace one, if you take kids with you be ready to take a rest stops 'cause trail leads you up all the way.

Moderate trail, pretty sustained uphill to the fireplace. Wish it was interpreted, I would've loved to have known more about the fireplace.

I would consider this more of a moderate trail as it's constant uphill to the fireplace. It's nice and quiet for a Friday morning walk/hike.

Nicely maintained trail and easy to find. I would definitely say this is a moderate intensity trail. Especially for the last .6 before you get to the fireplace. No views at the top, but it was cool to see the fireplace.

No people and a beautiful peaceful trail. Stopped at "Debbies View" were there is a great view of Rainer, other than that deep lush forest and a couple places were there was a creek for my pup to play in! ;) Easy to get lost or mixed up at the trail intersections so pay attention!

Challenging on the final 1/4 but a major letdown at the summit with weak views and an telco tower 'buzzin'
