I love this trail and the lake. I did it with my Mom who id 59 yo and my dog. It was really easy. Just a little long. A half marathon walking.

9-14-19 First time here, it was a perfect overcast day. Clear trails with great views, can't wait to repeat this hike earlier in the Summer.

Great, challenging hike. Was unfortunately overcast the day I did it, so I may return to summit again on a clear day.

Drove around in circles for quite a while trying to find the trailhead. It is marked, but you can't see the marker from where you park. Follow signs to the Council Lake campground. There is a sign at the campground stating the rules and whatnot, you will walk uphill directly behind that sign and after a minute or two you'll see a sign marking the "boundary trail." Follow that trail until it comes to a fork, on the right fork there is a wooden sign that says "view." That will take you up to the bluff and the absolutely amazing view. We wasted a lot of time trying to find the trail but it was well worth it. One of the best views I've seen in the northwest. Hope this helps others find it more easily!

Really beautiful trail, and not too difficult once you get warmed up. Lots of marmots and chipmunks and a few birds I can't identify. Quite a good variety of mountain views (of Rainier, St Helens, Adams, and Hood), creeks, fields, rocky summits, and a few waterfalls.

I hiked this trail with my family. It was raining, which I loved. The sound of the river on the way up to the waterfall was so nice! The view from the lower view point was alright, but so much better at the middle viewpoint. I would’ve loved to have hiked to the upper view point, but we had no time.

Beautiful Trail, Amazing Scenery and sights! Mountain squirrels for trail guides, and the bluest lake around! Swam in the lake, and could see the bottom all the way over to the rock, could have easily filled water bottles up at the lake it was so clean, 110% recommend to anyone inclined!

Nice trail, quick easy hike. However, the view from the peak is obstructed by trees which is too bad.

A lot of stairs at the end. I’d say it’s longer than .75 miles each way also. I’d recommend Sol Duc over these falls for ease of hike and reward at the end.

Gorgeous thundering triple waterfall! The hike was easy especially compared to others we’ve done. Beautiful old growth. It was raining the whole hike and still worth it!

I missed the good weather for this trail by about two days. Expecting 60's, 70's, I was met with 30s and rain/snow. It was still beautiful along the ridgeline but down in the valley, there was very little to be seen in the way of wildlife and we spent most of our time walking in a whiteout of clouds. I'd like to come back and try this one when the weather is better. I still haven't seen Rainier. Fog was too thick.

Your are supposed to pay $5 to park and if you are staying over night $15 , however I did not and when we got back I didn’t have a ticket. There was a couple of people camping and 2 or 3 cars there. But no one else was on the trail. When you look at this trail, you would think it’s a nice easy hike with a slow elevation to the top. It is definitely not that. We stayed to the left since there was 2 options once we started the hike it was an immediate start going up a very steep hill with lots of rocks straight up. It was a consistent up all the way to the top there was so switch backs at all you are going straight up the mountain the whole time. There are parts of the trail that is over grown and you had to duck your head to get through the bushes. We had gone on a wet day so it was slippery going up the mountain. We had tracked in and out was 7.1 miles and an elevation gain of 2,143. The elevation it says in here is incorrect from what it says. It took us about 2 hours and 45 minutes from top to bottom. Staying at the top for 15 minutes. When coming down it is very hard on your shins and we had fallen a couple of time from how steep it was going down. Would recommend this for more experience hikers.

We did the loop counter clockwise. Fairly easy at the start with a good climb to the falls. Nice bridges, and scenery most of the way, towards the top there is quite a bit of dead growth. We headed up still after the falls and then a turn at the top gives you a small grade at first leading to a pretty steep grade for awhile. We did encounter a bear on the downhill section so be aware.

On bike at least, this trail reminds you what ~700 feet elevation feels like. Did this is what become a down pour-it felt good and a great workout. By bike, you may not see much because you’re looking at your tire while going up or down hill.
