This has been around for a while...I’m 71... decent difficulty... good work out. If you did this daily you would be well tuned for similar hikes with some climb to them. Good exercise...Worth your time.

Really calm and relaxing to watch the sunrise up there

great hike!

great hike with my parents, husband and stepson!

this is a great trail, rain or shine its fast makes you sweat ..

Easy and delightful trail. Good campground.

Nice set of trails with great foliage and trees. Some parts are HARD, but most of it is MODERATE. None of the trails are marked which can be unnerving, but you just keep going up and if you run into someone, they can show you how to make it to the top where the two benches are. There are trails you can use to avoid the gravel road and you are not likely to get lost.

This is an amazing 9 MILE hike with stunning views and some pretty intense elevation at points and enough snow traversing that I wouldn’t recommend anything but boots (and bring extra food for the doggos, it’s a workout for them). It took us about 5 hours with a couple short breaks. Aside from the horses that passed us toward the beginning, it was a pretty solitary hike: only passed a few folks in one other section. We got kind of a late start though, but it was Sunday on 4th of July weekend with beautiful weather, so I imagine on a regular day it’s probably even less trafficked.

For Safety- BRING A MAP AND COMPASS as a back up to your gps (we were thankful for our downloaded maps on our trail apps): there were plenty of confusing junctions and bifurcations, in fact there was a 5-way junction at one point. Also there was a bit of bear scat in a few places, so bring your bear bells and bear spray.

(4 stars instead of 5 because there was a lot of horse poop in the beginning, but everything else was great)

It was a great place to do some laps when you want to be out in nature and chat while walking with a friend. We got some miles in with great scenery.

Mostly a gravel road with no real view at the top. Didn’t make me feel like I was somewhere unique. Gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because at least it had a bathroom that was well taken care of. I am also not sure why it is rated as a hard hike. It’s only 1.5 miles up and approx 1,200ft elevation gain. The top 200-300 ft is steep but is a very short section in the grand scheme of things. Lots of dog poop and lots of dogs off leashes which there is a sign that specifically says dogs are to be on leash.

Amazing peacefully

went on this trail today (6/24/18). It is a brutal climb to the top but definitely worth it. Gorgeous views of Mt Rainier. No snow at all. it was a warm day and a lot of hikers but not crowded. A few hikers with dogs.

LOVE this trail! It's a tough one but so worth it!!

Was trying to get to noble knob, but ended up here due a closed road. Wasn't sure how long the hike was and it was a hot day, so only made it about half way. A lot of long switchbacks up a steady incline. Most of the hike is through a fire torched forest. Kind of cool to see, but a lot of downed trees to cross and loose footing. Not many views, but I'm sure if I would've kept going to the top there may have been some.

Come for the workout, not the views. The trail is well marked and maintained. there is a portapotty that was maintained when I was there. Scenery is nice but there weren't really any mountain views today. If you bring kids, be sure they have good shoes and can hold their footing on the way down. I'll do it again though.

Loved it! Went on a hot Sunday and got roasted, but it was very quiet and peaceful. The contrast between the burnt forest and new life is wonderful, and the summit is well worth the trek

Hiked to the third viewpoint today. Trail was in great shape and the views were phenomenal. loved the diversity of terrain and the Indian Paintbrush at the viewpoints.

Decided to check this one out today and found a very well maintained dirt road. We started at the Dalles Ridge trail head.Trail was easy to follow except for one large snowfield about 1.5 miles in. luckily there was great reception and we were able to follow to follow the map to guide to the other side. There were a few trees down over the trail prior to the snow field but the were easily stepped over or walked around. After that the trail was great until you could see your end point. then there was one more snow patch that covered the trail and was very steep. We took it slow and made it past that to a great view. we were so busy looking at the fire damage and views on the first half and all the scenery on the second we didn't even realize how far we had hiked once we reached the end.

Lots of snow on the trail, no chance to keep on the trail when in the trees. GPS needed. Great hike.

Only a little bit of snow on the trail, lots of fallen/burned trees to cross.
Getting to the peak is a little tricky on the snow and mud. Use a pole.
Snow storm near the top. Enjoyed it.

when 5 and six year old children in flip flops can pass me....its not too tough.

Great hike to kill some time. Deer will walk along beside you. Not many view points along the way up.

I very much enjoyed this hike. It is easy and the drive out to it on 410 is amazing. In the valley bugs are a bit of an issue, but as soon as you move up hill at all they are gone. The waterfall is amazing and if you want to fill up your water it is easy to do here. This is kid friendly and easy access for folks that might be newer to hiking. As a reminder to dog owners, please keep those pups on a leash.

Awesome hike! Ended up at 9.2 miles round trip. You can definitely see life teeming through the burned wreckage! Great views at the top make it so amazing! Partly cloudy for us and did get socked in at the top at the end of our lunch and it dropped in temperature sooooo fast! We were prepared with layers but wow, it got so cold! Our hands were ice! We quickly headed down and it warmed up quickly in lower elevation. I’d love to see it on a full sun day! No water on the trail. Passed three hikers total. Nothing experty or necessarily difficult. Brought spikes and poles and used them for one really good snow patch at the top that was super steep. Other than that, snow isn’t a big deal but not sure if you could make it without the spikes - it would definitely make it challenging and slippery! We relied heavily on our GPS on this app, as the trail can be hard to follow. Got chatting at one point and went out of the way and off the trail so watch the GPS!

This park is not to bad. The facilities were clean, and I caught a decent 14" stocked rainbow trout here as my wife made her way around the lake. Once she was done I joined her on the mile hike aound the lake. if I had to nit pick I would have to say there are more bees than I care for, and you do run into people fairly often... even early in the morning.

This was a decent hike to do with three young kids. As you head away from the Interpretive Center on the West loop, you’ll encounter signs indicating the trail is closed due to hazardous conditions. Not to be deterred, we ignored those. Seems like the warnings were due to some muddy conditions. The bummer was that when we got to the far end at Meadows Gate, we had two choices, turn around and retrace what we came through or walk back along 410. There was no finding the North Trail. It was entirely overgrown. I wish there had been signs about that at the center, we never would have ventured so far. A beautiful area but we’ll stick to the small trails next time.

Fun scramble after the snow melts. But doing this "hike" in winter perforates some substantial avalanche slopes right in the middle, and violates Washington ski area (where it's located) law, putting you at high risk for a $1,000 fine...if you live. But go crazy!

5/27/18--Upper parts are fire damaged with potential for trees falling during wind. Warnings posted at trailheads. Burnt fallen trees are difficult to climb around if you're not fairly nimble.

Nice trail. Due to snow drifts and the fire it can be easy to lose the trail at times especially towards the top. The view is definitely worth the effort.

Good trail, waterfalls, flowers, three view outlooks.
