Hiked this trail on 23May2020. Great trail. Loved hiking since it was not too busy and we were able to hike all while social distancing. There is Snow at higher elevation but if you have the proper shoes on you will be ok.

The trail was in good shape. I thought the hike was a little boring. Lots of climbing, to see the same view.

If you have it in you, definitely climb to the top where Bean Peak is. Incredible views of Mt. Stuart and the Enchantments. But you need to get to at least 6,350 ft elevation for the vistas. The basin/meadow itself was pretty underwhelming (not really worth the 1,900 ft elevation gain), so I continued up to the ridge/peak. Didn’t need spikes or poles, but the last leg is very steep and over a bit of snow. Bean Peak is really where it’s at - absolutely amazing 360 degree views. But you need to climb about 3,100 ft to get to Bean Peak, not the 1,900 ft listed in AllTrails. Hiked on 5/24/20. Some bugs, but not bad at all since there’s still quite a bit of snow.

Beautiful hike the whole way! There were a few streams to cross but not too bad so I would recommend hiking boots. The second half includes a bit of snow which was manageable with hiking boots. Loved this hike!

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME HIKE! Best hike I’ve been on this year! Views are amazing, but windy. Pretty steep incline all the way. Several viewpoints along the way to enjoy. Once you reach the first peak/ rock formation, the trail afterwards is slightly overgrown. Definitely can tell no one keeps going. BUT IF YOU DO! You will be compensated immensely!! So KEEP GOING! It’s not over yet!

Really beautiful but not much of a hike. Road and trial are snow free. Once to the trail head only took us about 10 minutes to get to the lookout (with 3 kids in tow). Beautiful views. Cold and windy at top but not too bad. Lookout is closed currently but you are able to explore around it. If you’re looking for a calorie burning hike this isn’t the one. The adventure is in the drive up the forest road. Be careful if you follow google maps. It stops you about a mile shy of the parking lot/trailhead.

I parked approx. 5 miles away so I got a good workout on our way even before we started the trail itself which was less than a mile (kind of steep though). Overall it was worth it. It is so beautiful all around but quite windy. Don't do what I did and forget your jacket in the car. :)

Very snowy. Followed others trails but couldn't see the trail. Had to turn back when tracks were lost.

No snow on the road or trail. Steep but short climb. Pretty windy at the top! Beautiful in all directions.

I wanted to hike this trail the day before but plans had changed and I ended up hiking it today. The weather was less than perfect but not so bad it would keep me away. The drive to the trailhead was long but beautiful. I was coming from Snohomish County so I took I-90 out but learned I could've taken HWY 2 into Leavenworth and headed South to the forest road. And it would've saved me a left turn into oncoming traffic on a busy highway. The road was dry with one large patch of snow that was off to the side so it didn't pose any concerns. There are a lot of side roads that'll take you all over the mountain but if you stay the course, you'll eventually run into signage that will keep you on track. Just set your odometer and you'll be fine. When I arrived at the trailhead, there were 5-6 cars but the people were mostly interested in rock finding and not the actual hike up to the lookout. The trail leading up to the lookout is mostly dry, muddy in the forested section but not so muddy you'd need any special gear to negotiate. Once at the lookout, the wind really picked up. Like in previous trip reports, it was cold. Very cold. The wind whipped around further lowing the temperature. I would say it was barely 40 degrees at the summit. So dress warm. I spent the majority of my time at the lookout alone. It was a fun hike and probably a lot more enjoyable when it's not so cold.

Enjoyed this a lot. From the basin went up to Earl peak then followed the ridge to Bean peak then to Mary's peak and then to Judi's. Went back down into the same basin and out again. Used crampons during Earl ascent as well as descending from Judi's. Also used them for part of the distance between Bean and Marys. A good percentage of the ridge was scrambling on rocks. Starting on the trail at 3:30am we were mostly on harder snow that hadn't yet softened.

If you're looking for a nice view and place to hang around for a bit this is a great option. The drive might be the hardest part for some people. There was a couple snow patches when I went but easy enough to get through in a fwd with some speed.

Make sure to take a right down to the creek and cross the bridge to get on trail 1212, it’s not marked. Steep ascent for approximately 2 miles and then the trail becomes more moderate once you hit the ridge. The trail is very narrow as you cross a steep face. Take some time to explore the ridge to find good viewpoints. There are large rocks at the very end of the ridge that offer views off both sides, including a view of Mt. Stuart!

found a pair of definitely prescription glasses. would love to get them back to a rightful owner! let me know if you lost a pair! if you can even kinda describe them, they're yours, because they are probably useless to everyone else! :) also, tiny bit of snow near the top, in patches. super easy to cross, no real fear of losing the trail. when you think you're at the top, keep going! once you make it to the big rocks, you're there! :)
