Users have reported that the final mile to the lookout is now closed off due to vandalism, but it is easily walked either by the remainder of the old forest service road or by an intersecting hiking trail. Be sure to have a Northwest Forest Pass or it’s equivalent, the Discover Pass is not valid here.

Amazing views! Road up wasn’t super icee as of last weeks attempt (i turned around was getting too late . Took longer than i thought to get to the lookout we must have taken a longer route . Used just hiking boots and were fine . Did with teens and my 2.5 yr old in pack ... we didn’t have but 30 minutes until we had to head back . Will do again for sure .

Beautiful day to hike up! Views for miles. Lots of snow! Slippery in places. The gate was open all the way to the trail, lots of cars made it in the snow. Definitely take it easy on the drive up. Lots of snow and ice.

A nice little walk, about two miles when the top gate is closed. Great views.

Beautiful on a clear day- driving up the forest roads takes longer than the hike itself

Me and my 4 year old needed to get out in the sun for a little adventure and Suntop was the perfect spot for it. The gate was closed so we trekked up the trail, which we expected. As we were picnicking up top, the volunteer staffing the firelookout came and so the gate was open after that. The road is totally fine (I’m used to Summit Lake trailhead road which is horrendous). Beautiful mountain views and the perfect little kid hike. Great day!

Drove right to it. Volunteers were at the site. Cloudy, but cool, got an amazing tour! Will be back when it’s sunny, and also on a clear night!

splendid! the hardest part of this trail is the unimproved forest road you traverse coming off of WA-410. those five miles are definitely easier done with a vehicle that has decent ground clearance. the final mile to the lookout is now closed off due to vandalism but it is easily walked either by the remainder of the old forest service road or by an intersecting hiking trail. either way, expect to gain around 500’ in that last stretch. once you arrive at the top you’re welcomed by a spectacularly direct view of Mt. Rainier’s north face. the 1930’s era lookout adds a cool feature to the plateau; you’ll also find a number of picnic tables and a pit toilet. be sure to have a Northwest Forest Pass or it’s equivalent, the Discover Pass is not valid here.
