Nice trail. The end of the wide-flat part means you are about halfway! Tons of water on the trail right now, which will no doubt improve throughout the summer. It can get oppressive at times. A handful of step-ups are thigh high. A lot of bumps/potholes on the way in. Have fun!

Well-maintained trail. Make sure to go on a sunny day to get the best views up top. some clouds were obstructing the view for Mt Rainer.

Some snow at the end right before the lake and few muddy sections. I did it in running shoes with no issues. Other than that trail is in great shape

Great easy hike. Weather was beautiful and warm. I suggest you go when it’s sunny out just because there’s is lots of shade. Make sure you bring insect repellant. Definitely Kid friendly. Nice area to have a picnic at the beginning. We did find a spot by the lake where there were trees fallen and we just sat there in the shade and enjoyed our lunch! Pass required, or pay $5 for day fee. I have the northwest pass and it was allowed.

(Hiked 6/2/20) Absolutely gorgeous trail, even on a drizzly day! My partner and I loved the constant change in scenery and the creek and little waterfalls you follow along the way up. Still good patches of snow for the last .5 - .75 miles, but spikes would only be necessary if you wanted to hike completely around the lake. Did see bear tracks and a black bear! Dissension was tricky on the knees dude to the slippery roots and rocks and the overgrown parts. We will definitely be back this summer to camp! Should also mention that there are lots of potholes on the drive up.

What an amazing view! We did the hike early June with a 5 & 8 year old. We will definitely do it again. No bugs and perfect weather.

Arrived around 10:30 Wednesday and still several parking spots available. No snow coverage and trail was clear (no down trees or debris). We quickly jumped in the lake at the top and it definitely takes your breath away - but super refreshing! Not buggy but we did find 5 ticks on clothing when we sat on boulders at top of lake. Be prepared to check hair and clothing! Would rate this on the more moderate side of difficult (saw several people wearing Vans and successfully completed hike so...). My watch clocked 9 miles RT w/ minimal detours.

Really nice day hike! The road to the trail head had insane potholes but I saw a lot of small sedans that managed to make it up anyways. The hike was muddy in places and you had to cross some water too so boots would be better than sneakers. Turned into ~5 miles round trip if you walk around the entire lake

I really enjoyed this hike because it was picturesque and pleasant without being too exerting. The trail is very soft and well maintained. The air is very fresh and the forest is the perfect getaway. The waterfalls were stunning and make sure to walk down to each viewpoint.

We somehow missed the loop and did out and back which was longer maybe 2 miles. Lots of mud and downed trees. A lot of over and under. The forest is beautiful and the lake is quiet. Relatively flat, easy hike. It was overcast so we missed the Mountain View.

Relatively flat trail. Lots of wildflowers. I did the trail in flip flops due to blisters from previous hikes and had no difficulties. The water is amazing! The river is massive right now. Lots more little waterfalls too.

Hiked around 3pm and made it to Talapus lake and back down. Took just about an hour to get up and then back to the bottom. Not too many people at that time, plenty of parking spaces. Not too tough of a hike either! Recommend for kids!

it's a great hike! the trail is in good condition and there wasnt too many people when i went (i started at 9am). the view at the top was amazing! the sun was out and you could see Rainier clearly! the hike or climb to the top of Mt. Si is exposed, but is worth it to do if you are comfortable with a little climb.

Fun, easy hike. First of the year for me and it was a great way to jump back into hiking. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice hike that isn’t too difficult. The lake is beautiful and the mountain looming above it has small waterfalls here and there. The trail is really wet and muddy so make sure to wear hiking boots!!! Also, the drive up to the trailhead is very bumpy and has lots of potholes so make sure to go up in a car that can handle it.

This is a lovely hike BUT it’s all snowed in right now even with a high clearance vehicle. The trailhead is also completely covered in snow .
