Its a climb but great views. There is a great ridge trail after the end of the official trail.

Camped there last night. Trail is super wet, wear boots. A lot of it you’re still walking through snow. Super easy and fun!

Great hike. No snow but some mud and wet spots!

Great short hike. About the steepness of Skyline, but much shorter. You can get to the top in about 25 minutes if you keep a good pace.

FYI - the trail to Seven Glaciers is still closed! We got so excited to hike up there but due to avalanche warnings and snow levels the trail isn't expected to open until late June. Call the resort ahead of time to check if the trail is open.

great hike, last bit is good, a little challenging, climbing. there was still some snow on the trail, made things interesting in a couple places

Thru-Hiked this May 20th 2018. Still knee-high snow scattered along trail from mile 3 to mile 6, then mud for most of the remaining miles. Trail is difficult to find and follow due to snow. Views are amazing, but I won’t do this trail again until conditions improve.

Great hike. Calf burner, but the views are worth it. Ended up following the trail back from the peak rather than completing the loop as the return trail wasn’t obvious enough for my attention span.

Amazing trail! We hiked the “hard side” and had a blast!

Hand tram was still closed as of today, but a beautiful hike nonetheless! Plenty of boardwalks and gravel sections to keep you from getting too muddy.

Great afternoon hike with amazing views of Sleeping Lady. Not very difficult, kids can do it, but it is a nice uphill challenge. Even for May, the trail is clean and dry. The last leg still has some snow. The path itself is fairly narrow and has loose rocks so good shoes are ideal. Will definitely make this a regular hike.

Nice short out and back, great views, a couple of minor stream crossings, would be best to do this hike early in the season before the cow parsnip grows out of control. Each end of the hike, whether you start at the Rainbow end or the Windy end will have you going uphill for about a quarter mile. We saw some Dall Sheep at Windy. The views are awesome, but I could see that one skiddish about heights might find this hike out of their comfort zone, as the trail can be narrow along a pretty steep drop at times.

Gosh what a great trail. super pleasant walking. not much elevation rewuired. and so many changes in scenery. lush forest with creepy shaped trees, straw meadows, expanse, imposing Mountains. this trail has everything one could ask for on a hike. I wished it never ended and I was still on it instead of writing about it. there's a squirrel in the trail. a little beautiful squirrel that looks at you funny when you pass by.

saw a bear in trees across from exit glacier view point. made it to meadows on harding ice field, but pouring rain was deteriorating snow and making conditions icy. snow up to waist in some areas.

Not sure if I would rate this as easy. wasn't too bad, steeper than expected for an "easy" trail.

quick and easy. still a bit of ice at the very end of the creek trail before the waterfall.

one of my favorites! If I ever want to go on a hike and I'm not sure what I want to do, this is where I go. I don't think I've ever hiked more than 10 miles around trip, so I've never made it to the end, but some day I will!

So there actually is no trail from west glacier. I looked for a while, followed my gps to where is should have been, there’s nothing. Maybe past tree line there’s a bit of one, but honestly you don’t need one then. Spent a good 2 hours pulling myself up the side of the mountain by alder bushes. Expect to be climbing on all fours if you hike this trail.

I do this hike usually at least once a year, and it is a great one to bring visitors on—and then go for a soak in the hot springs afterward. As of May 16th, the snow is mostly gone. I was originally planning to continue on to the springs, however there is a lot of snow yet on the higher elevations. There are getting to be some pretty deep washout channels near the top. If you are looking for an early-season, mostly dry hike then Angel Rocks will fit the bill. Bring insect repellent.

Awesome trail with access to Mendenhall glacier at the end.

Easy and beautiful views! Totally worth it!

A relatively flat trail with historic markers and ruins of the mine. A nice walk.

It’s all uphill to the bunker at the top, but well worth the effort. Do it on a sunny summer day for GREAT views of the area!

Challenging trail for distance , mostly incline , good workout , definately loved views .

Great trail, nice....easy once your at top it's like you never wanna leave.

This is one of my favorite hikes,I do like to hike it as much as I possibly can.
The top is so amazing, great view of the valley. In all directions, you can see everything on nice days!

A little sloppy in some spots and slick in others. Poles and traction helped. Went down the back side as we were concerned about slipping going back down the front side. Snow is deep on the backside but manageable. Overall a good hike.
