GREAT hike and such a payoff at the top!

The hike isn't too bad until the last mile. The last mile killed me, haha. There was a bit of snow at the end and spikes help but you don't NEED them. I would definitely suggest going pretty early though because it gets pretty crowded later in the day.

It was supposed to be a rainy day today, but to my surprise the sun was out and shining. The top was beautiful and totally worth the burn. I'm not in that good of shape so this hike pushed me pretty hard. Definitely wear comfy hiking shoes that can handle the rocky and muddy terrain. Going down was rough on my knees (didn't use sticks). The views at the top are breathtaking. No matter where you look - it's gorgeous.

avoid starting on the lower trailhead. The climb up the ridge to the upper trailhead is very steep and easy to lose the trail, at least at this time of year. Bring snowshoes for the upper forest road and microspikes for the trail. Really nice forest to hike through!

When I hike, I like a challenge, followed by a big payoff. I wasn't thinking this morning and skipped breakfast, so by the time I reached the top I was exhausted. Took about 2.25 hours, but the payoff was incredible. 360 degree views of snow capped peaks, rivers, and the valley. Going down took about 1.5 hours. Sunset was at 4:45, we left the top at 3:45, and we were able to hike without headlamps til about 5:05. The trail was wet, running with water for the first mile, then dry the rest of the way up. A quarter mile or less from the top, the wind was blowing like crazy, and the temp was freezing. I wore a light jacket and wished I had gloves, but only at the top.

super fun hike! I would highly recommend microspikes and maybe some trekking poles, they really helped as the snow was soft and there was a lot of icy spots. Beautiful lake at the end though!!

Definitely a intense hike, tried to do a sunrise but took longer than planned to get to the top. Went up new trail and down old. And boy are my knees sore from going down old trail! Fair warning!
But the view at the top! Well worth it! No need for spikes at the moment.

This is an awesome hike, got to be bit careful while walking in the ledges 2-3 are really steep and bit icy. Would suggest either snowshoes or crampons. But the frozen alpine lake is a cool reward at the top

Pretty hard trail: it’s steep and there isn’t much to be distracted by on the way up. However, the 360-degree views of the Cascade and Olympic ranges, Seattle, Bellevue, Mt. Rainer, and surrounding communities make it well worth it. Extremely windy at the summit, but definitely manageable.

The trail itself was very well maintained. It was a nice quiet forest setting most of the way. The final viewpoint was pretty, but kind of anticlimactic. I kept walking, assuming it got better, but the trail ended at some clear-cutting and a washed out trail blocked by fallen trees. No snow, except for some packed slush at the viewpoint.

A totally snow free hike, only few muddy patches. The beginning and the end have a bit steep hike but otherwise it's more a walk. The way through mossy trees is pretty and so are the views. Wear layers, it got hot while hiking but really cold at the end with high winds.

As of today the snow is about thigh deep about half way up it’s starting to get very hard to get to the top and impossible without snow spikes or snow shoes, sadly I was late and I didn’t make it all the way up but still a great hike, next time I’ll cheat up one of the avalanche channels and then just follow the ridge till I get back to the trail, and the watch tower

Awesome hike! Old trail is a beast and new trail down was perfect on the knees. Put on microspikes right after the boulder field.

We went to rattlesnake ledge and east peak earlier today, most part of the trail is pretty dry, a lot of people, the views are great!At the east peak, it's a bit of windy, but definitely worth it.

Great hike on a surprisingly warm day (almost 60) on a muddy and busy trail. The river and falls are beautiful, with plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery and some awesome pictures. I continued on to the trail head for the Mt. Washington trail to hit a geocache, overall, this is a great hike and one I will definitely return to in the summer.

Great little trail, some of it was a little washed out and in need of repair, but really a great hike. Beautiful falls.

Hiking this trail was an absolute breeze and the views were well worth it with clear sunny skies. Due to recent rain the trail was pretty muddy in a handful of places but nothing a good pair of shoes can't handle, and no snow to be seen anywhere.

Nice steady uphill climb. Worth the views.
