Quick loop for an easy stroll. Lots of beautiful wild flowers. Very busy during the summer but still enjoyable. Has bathroom (aka shed over a hole) in the parking area but requires patience to wait in line during peak season. Take the longer 3+ mile Naches Peak Loop nearby for breathtaking views of the mountain.

Drive up has scenic views of mountain-side. The trail was a simple loop around the lake. Pretty. A side trail that extends off it leads to other longer trails that are possible to do; seemed to be more technical.

Short, easy walk to/around three small lakes in a very picturesque setting. Plenty of wildflowers when we visited in late July. Also plenty of biting insects, so remember your DEET (Picardin was ineffective).

On a nice day, the Naches Peak loop is one of the best hikes around. The views are fabulous, and the wildflowers are still pretty good due to the wet summer. Some blueberries too. Trail not too dusty. We on a weekday afternoon and there were plenty of people, so weekends might be very crowded. Park at Chinook pass with NW forest pass, or at Tipsoo lake without one. From Tipsoo lake parking area, walk toward the lake, then take the trail to the left, up the hill through the woods. This brings you to the wooden bridge over the highway at the pass. do the loop in a clockwise fashion for best views of Mt. Rainier.
