May 5. Road snowed out 3 miles from trailhead. Tried to hike the extra distance but turned around 4 miles in. Might be able to do it with snowshoes if you start early morning. Lots of snowmobiles.

good easy hike with nice river views

Forest road snow covered at 4 miles prevented us from making it to the TH. Some large potholes up to that point but not terrible.

Great easy trail with awesome views. There is bridge washout in the middle of the trails, but we crossed it without any problem.

This is an awesome trail. The zig-zags in the beginning were a bit boring but once you turn around the corner (you'll know it), the view was gorgeous! All the snow mountains including Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Rainier, etc.. And don't stop your pace until you hike all the way up to the ridge. The view's even better there!

And the road to the trailhead was fun to drive on, too.

Beautiful hike, but definitely bring micro spikes if you have them for the top! There are about 2-3 inches 4800 ft +.

Such a beautiful hike! So lucky to live in the PNW and have this in our backyard. There was quite a bit of snow at the top, so probably not many days left to do this hike this year.

I don't think this trail exists as of October 6 2017. Spent about an hour searching for it on various false trails around the GPS coordinates. Lots of trash in the area.

In any case, the trail is very poorly marked, if at all.

Hiked Sauk Mountain today. Beautiful day and the views from the top are worth the effort. Both my wife and I thought it was a gradual climb, but nothing overly strenuous. Sauk Mountain Rd off of Hwy 20 was our only concern. Gravel for 7 miles. Didn't encounter a car the whole way up. We got into the parking lot and it was empty. Then 3 more cars arrived. Living in Shoreline, it is a bit far for us to go, but I could see us venturing up the North Cascade Hwy again. Next time we will go all the way to the lake. 2 thumbs ups!!

Beautiful hike. The forest road to get there is very rough and low clearance vehicles can make it but have to be more careful with the pot hole and washboard roads.

The switchbacks make the elevation gain very easy. Easier hike then Wallace Falls or Heather Lake as the trial is mostly root and large rock free. There are 3-5 places where you need to go up some rocks but it is manageable. View at the top is great. No bugs this time of season as I hiked it on Sat Sep 23, 2017.

Beautiful

Absolutely stunning at the top, if you do this hike and have time go to the lake as well since there is no other way to it.

Absolutely gorgeous. The meadow and the views of Shuksan are breathtaking. Bring lots of water and be prepared for a 90% uphill slog. Worth it.

Diverse hike and amazing views. My favorite trail in WA so far - truly enchanting.

Camped about a mile down from the lookout. Plenty of berries along the trail. Will be sure to return.

I love this entire hike and the beautiful drive to get to it! If you'd like an even shorter, more level hike (with kids or elders) you can take the Murphy Creek trail (just beyond the right fork at trailhead). There are several little river spots that are easy to get to off that smaller trail.

Drive up was beautiful. Deep slushy thigh-deep snow prevented any hiking. All upper trails in same condition.

Incredible views! Go to the top and you see a 360 degree view of absolute beauty. Hike up is all switchbacks, making the elevation change smooth and gradual. Highly recommend!

Fantastic beautiful hike! Endless beauty..

Easy hike with little to no net elevation gain. Creeks passing through the trail were all dry due to the lack of rainfall recently... I suppose. Be sure to stop on the bridge .6 miles in as it offers the best views on the whole trip.

We visited the falls on August 8, 2017. The rumored footbridge over the creek is gone and the trail is heavily overgrown. It being low water, wading the creek seemed the best way to reach the old dam at the top of the falls.

Stunning views - wildflowers were in full bloom! Bring lots of water & bug spray. The road up to the trailhead is 7 miles of bumpy, dusty dirt road.

Fabulous views. Well marked trail. HOT when sun is out with little shade so be prepared with plenty of water. Also crazy bad bugs - flies mostly - so bring bug juice!

Beautiful!!!

Great trail during spring and summer ! View from bottom to top and top to bottom! Is a must hike if you are around the area!

Lots of wildflowers, great views from the top, Baker to Rainier. Early arrival is a definite plus, as parking is limited, and once the sun is high you are pretty much in the sun the whole hike. Well worth the hike.

If there are roads that lead to heaven, this might be one of them! This was the most beautiful and breathtaking hike I've done yet!
The road leading up to the trail head is a bit steep and you need to drive slow, as it is a gravel road and there are bumps and pot holes. Once at the trailhead, there is a little wooden outhouse and a picnic table. The hike is a dirt trail with steep switchbacks, passing along beautiful wildflowers all along the way. There are lots of bugs, flies, and bees, so make sure you bring bug spray. The trail is exposed all of the way with no cover, so make sure to bring along your sunscreen and wear a hat. Once you get close to the top, the trail will wind around and you will go up the back of the mountain, where there is snow to hike through until you make it to the summit. It's a good idea to bring your trekking poles, especially for this part. You don't need them, but sure wish I would have brought mine and would have made this part easier! Once you get to the summit, you are met with breathtaking views of mountain tops and 360 degree views.
This hike is absolutely amazing! If you haven't gone - this is a MUST hike this summer. It's worth every step up!
