Made the loop with 7 other women
Several parts of the trail were covered with snow
Difficult to cross, slippery and some places had water running under the snow.
I wish we had known about the trail.
The last 1/2 coming down was great.
Only one patch of snow to walk over
I gave it a 4 because it's a favorite trail. But may not do it in July. View was gorgeous and several water falls were awesome.

It was a beautiful day for a family hike. Must do the loop not just part of it. Enjoy the scenery and take in the fresh air. The flowers were gorgeous with colors poppin' and the lake in the distance was a bonus. Had lunch on the rock with a mountain view. All praise to our father in the heavens!! 8-23-16

Very easy, and the lake was very clear. I went mid June and it was about 45 degrees.

Easy, short hike but plenty of longer hikes right around the area. There are several parking places and entrances to this trail. The lake is crystal with an amazing view of Mount Rainier and wildflowers all around!
