Hiked this trail on Saturday the 14th of July, 2018.
It was just as expected with a few areas of snow on the trail to traverse vs two weeks prior with over 3 feet of snow. “Cancelled that hike as I wasn’t prepared.”
Flowers were just coming into bloom, bugs were happy to see and bite us! The views are always breathtaking for such an easy hike for young to old.

this was my first overnight hike ive taken, and while it is amazing it was a lot more difficult than I was expecting. it seemed like it was entirely up hill to echo lake and the last mile or so was the hardest, with about 1000 feet of elevation gain. I would highly recommend this hike just be prepared. coming from Austin tx I'm not used to this at all so I'm sure thats why it was difficult for me but with that said it was totally worth it! there is still a lot of fire damage at and leading up to the lake, which made it hard to fish and also it seemed like most of the decent sized fish were in the middle. I was able to catch 4 trout but they were pretty small.

Beautiful hike with amazing views , many narrow trails covered with snow. We went off trail for about 1.5mile well worth it amazing views of Dewey Lake & two other unknown small lakes .

Me and my girlfriend loved this trail. The only thing, if your going to camp at the lake, is to get there early. A large burn last year (2017) destroyed most of the designated camping areas and fallen timber has cut off the loop around the lake. Great for morrels though!

Last year we hiked that trail, great loop and we ate lunch on the way back. I would do it again, definitely.

Great trail for families. Took kids and dogs on Saturday, which was busy! Last time I went mid week and only saw 2 people. Still had a good time.

Great view, we stopped for lunch at sheep lake and the experience was AMAZING. You will see squirrels, fish, and if course, a lake

Beautiful! Good trail, not too many people. A few "iffy" bridges.

6/30/18 There are still several feet of snow, all the way to the parking lot. Trail is buried and lakes are still frozen. You can't get very far without crampons.

Great trail for wildflowers when they are in bloom!

Nice fairly easy hike to Sheep Lake, with beautiful views along the way.

Highly recommend. Great way to see a lot of the varied beauty of Mt Rainier NP in a very short easy hike.

Beautiful hike !

Beautiful views all along the trail. Nice chance to hit the Pacific Crest Trail.

The trail was covered in a foot of snow so unfortunately we only got about halfway before we had to turn around due to an avalanche that covered the path. We still had fun and loved the views.

Beautiful, easy trail! Multiple lake views, a scenic bridge overpass and if you're lucky a stunning view of Rainier. Go clockwise for the best views of the mountain. 3 inches of snow when hiking it yesterday, which was a surprise. Bring your hiking boots and leave extra socks/shoes in the car as there are some heavy runoff puddles at the end.

Beautiful hike! Some snow in areas, it was lovely!

Lovely easy hike, frost and some ice in the shady parts, beautiful views are always stunning no matter how many times I hike this.

A beautiful hike! Beautiful views considering it's rated as easy. I went clockwise as suggested by many others here and I'm glad I did. This way you're walking toward Rainier instead of having your back toward it for the majority of the hike. Lots of fall colors right now too!

Simple trail! Short one with spectacular views on a clear day.
I absolutely loved the wooden bench by the lake, so serene ... I scribbled some poetry while I was soaking in the beauty of the lake.
By far my fav spot, and I say this after having some serious 'hard' hikes :)

Beautiful hike — what’s not really clear in the description is that only half of it is pet friendly so if you start on the National Park side it is a very short walk to the trailhead where it says no pets and you head back to your car. The national forest side however allows you to bring pets with paid parking or ATB Pass. Please keep your pets on leash and children close as we saw two black bears in relatively close visual range on our hike and would hate for something to happen to them or your loved ones.

Great hike, nice day. Easy enough for the whole family. No dogs allowed on trail. Primitive bathrooms at trailhead. Heard bear sighted near trail but never saw it.

I guess we are slowish hikers, but took about three hours to complete. Took clockwise trail for max Rainier viewing potential. Would definitely hike again when people come to visit WA, as would be good for a newbie hiker.

Did not start out the day expecting to do this but said what the hell and did the detour down to the lake and back from the Naches Trail. The lake is quiet and a great place to eat lunch along the water. Nothing too technical - downhill and then back uphill.

Easy hike on a warm day. 3 hours total with a detour down to Dewey Lake. Definitely hike clockwise from Tipsoo lake as the views are better - we did counter clockwise from the end of the trail on the other side of 410. Saw the Norse Peak fire smoke coming over the ridge at the PCT junction - crazy and awesome at the same time.

Hiked on Sunday, Sept 3rd. I like this hike a lot. For me it's a 4-Star, short with great views. Reportedly a bear on the south side of the peak in the huckleberries but we didn't see it. Lots of people on the trail for the holiday hike. The forest fires in E Wa on the north side of the 410 HWY were visible from the trail.

Great sunrise hike!

Is this location hard to find and get to? Do
You enter the main park?

Close to a 7 mile hike with a 3,000 ft elevation gain, but it really is a very pleasant hike (i.e. not that difficult). Echo Lake is beautiful. Fishing however was a challenge as most fish were out in the deep middle of the lake and hard to reach. But still a strong recommendation!

We went today (Sunday) and got there around 10am. There were still parking spots when we arrived. We did the loop clockwise like alltrails suggest. We brought our 10 month old and 2.5 year old. So glad we did as we're walking towards Mount Rainier for the second half of the loop. Beautiful hike with basically gorgeous views the whole time. Lots of wildflowers still and tons of bees. You could hear them all buzzing around in the meadows. Also a lot of crickets jumping on the trail, but thankfully not many mosquitoes. We ran into a ranger who pointed out some blueberries on the trail (about 2/3 or so down the loop) and mentioned that a prior group had seen a bear. I would do this hike again any day.

Great hike with beautiful views.
