HikingGreat!Rocky

Great hike, was more challenging than I thought it was going to be. The climb in elevation is gradual yet still requires oxygen breaks. There are some parts (mostly the last few miles if going clockwise) that have quite a bit of loose rocks which made my poles scatter about and my ankles vulnerable to rolling. But it was a nice day (i.e. all day) hike. A lot of spots to pitch a tent if you're looking to spend the night. Only saw a handful of people on a sunny Saturday, so it doesn't seem to be too crowded.

This trail is wonderful, several points to admire the mountain! if you are a beginner this is not a good indication because it is 4 miles climbing rocks, the view of the lake is incredible, we even dived into the freezing lake Lol

It was on the easy side of moderate. Pretty buggy and really busy on the weekend. So much fun though. Heather lake was a perfect place to hang out for hours

This trail was hard but amazing. It felt longer than 6.9 miles but the views and flowers at the top are insane. Highly recommend. Well maintained. Not buggy. Great place to sit up at the top

My group completed this trip on 8/1. We got to the trailhead around 11 and it was hard to find parking. We ended up 0.5 miles away although to our surprise, the trail wasn’t very crowded at all! The views during the entire hike are gorgeous but the flies were a huge nuisance. We swatted and killed too many to count and they bothered us from beginning to end! This trail is definitely hard but it was worth it. Just bring plenty of water and food since you’re in the sun most of the time. The last 1.5 - 2 miles are pretty grueling and not for beginners. It worth it though to get that view of baker at the top. The peak only has 1-2 groups and we all spread out. Overall would absolutely hike this again and camp overnight to see the stars

Started at Austin Pass picnic area and hiked up to Artists Point. You can follow the trail or the road. There are still areas covered in snow. We used mini spikes for a few spots, but they weren’t necessary. The views at the top are fantastic.

Beautiful hike. Baker was in the clouds but the views were still impressive. No spikes needed.

HikingGreat!Snow

Just did this hike on saturday 8/1/2020. Great hike as all have stated. Im out of shape and 50 years old so this hike was very challenging for me. Definitely go counter clockwise. I never would have been able to do the uphill if we had gone clockwise. This hike took our party 7 hours with no real huge break. My mistakes: I didnt bring nearly enough water I didnt bring a snack for the top before our descent. I wore keen sandals. This is a serious hike and had I been prepared it would have been much easier. Note: bring binoculars- we spotted two bears along the hike by glassing the berry patches\meadows far below us once we got up high. Nobody else even noticed them. Beautuful hike - i will do it again for sure

HikingGreat!

Did this hike today. Started around 10:30 with 4 other cars in the parking lot. Went alone. I thought there would be more hikers out with the weather so nice but I didn’t see a single other soul til I was almost to the top (2:05hrs in). This made it a little eery honestly. I didn’t realize pretty much the whole hike is deep in the forest with no views until you hit about mile 4. It’s also all uphill switchbacks until you reach the peak which is a little intense when you’re pregnant. Nonetheless it was a great hike and I’d do it again. Views at the top and in the meadow were totally worth the effort to get up there. It took me around 2.5 hours to get to the peak and I stopped a lot to catch my breath. I hung out at the top for about 20 minutes and the clouds came in so I headed down. I made it down in 2 hrs with a pretty steady pace. Was happy to have a trekking pole on the way up but especially on the way down as parts were a little rocky and loose, I nearly rolled my ankle but luckily caught myself with the pole. Bugs were out and buzzing but I never got bit even with no spray on. I’d recommend long pants as some sections were narrow with lots of foliage. According to my watch it was 9.2 miles total and took 4hrs 37min. Have fun and be ready for a good workout!

You will be much more likely to find the waterfall if you download the map. There is no word signage, and there are several forks in the path. The final fork to the path is very narrow and partially hidden by branches. Even with the map, we chose the wrong fork several times and did not realize it until we had gone about a quarter mile, due to lag with the blue dot. I got much better at checking the blue dot status (still on the trail) as we continued, but we still ended up walking an extra couple miles. The path is mostly shaded, gravel, and flat with occasional slight incline/decline. The final fork was a little muddy, but not too bad. There are mostly younger alders, hemlocks and firs with some older trees, including some cedars, as you get closer to the falls. We also want to try the other Kennedy Falls trail that starts from highway 101. We had fun. This trail was a good metaphor for life decisions, and were lucky to be able to backtrack and get back on course :)

This trail is good for walking or running. You can bring your dog too but needs to be on a leash.

The mosquitoes are not that bad. They definitely are not anything close to soul crushing Yosemite Valley PCT in July. The gnats that fly into your eyes are another story. Those things are terrible right now. I almost fell off the trail numerous times due to the gnats. I suggest some 90's style Oakley's that really hug your face and limit pathways for the demon gnats to utilize. The wayfarers I wore simply did not cut it. They will fly into the corners of your eyes and get wedged there and die. Have fun digging a gnat out of your eye with disgusting dirty fingers thirty miles from anywhere. It's great. I've tried it, only to fail, and have a gnat stuck in my eye until I got home.

This is a moderate to hard hiking trail depending on your hiking skills. Otherwise the view from the top was amazing! It's breathtaking views.

We did this hike with kids and it went well. Moderate hike i would say. Bring some water and snacks while you're appreciating the view from the top.

Beautiful views but this trail wins for most dog crap on a trail! Not just on the sides of the trail but all up the middle. I’m used to inconsiderate dog owners on hiking trails but this is just gross. Watch your step!!

Perfect trail with the little ones stroller friendly we usually apply bug spray before hitting the trail and completely forgot and those bugs were out unfortunately but there were two bridge crossings over a swampy area so that’s why trail was narrow so couldn’t 100% practice social distancing but only came across a few people on the trail

HikingGreat!

After reading the reviews I was hesitant to do this hike. But I went with a friend and our husbands were mountain biking the trail and decided to just go ahead and hike it. We were prepared to be over run by mountain bikers and flies. We were very pleasantly surprised! We arrived on the trail at 9am on a Saturday. We experienced 4 mountain bikers and 1 hiker in the 2 hours it took us to summit. Once at the top the view is AMAZING and you see Mt St Helens, Mt Rainier, Mt Adams and Mt Hood. We did experience more mountain bikers and more hikers on the way down but everyone was very friendly and respectful. Mountain bikers have the right of way but many offered to stop and let us pass. Flies were only bad the last mile as the sun had finally come out of the clouds and it was much warmer than in the morning. The trail is very well maintained and the elevation gain is very manageable as it is over almost 5 miles. It is a long hike out and back is 10 miles. You don’t really need hiking polls. Arrive early as parking is a problem. We arrived at 0830 and had no problem getting a good spot. I highly recommend this hike!
