Didn’t feel like 8 miles at all! So many waypoints and views and nature to look at. The views make this hike! Clouds did roll in and we lost the views of Rainier on Burroughs, but the valley and lake were gorgeous coming down. Fremont was the sketchiest part of the trail, but not too bad. Agree with another reviewer, enough loose rock to keep you engaged and not get bored. Bring warm layers and micro spikes if your shoes have lost their tread like mine!
