Very crowded but good bang for your buck - quick out and back that can take less than 2 hours. Great view from the top!

Beautiful view when you get to the top. Definitely worth the hike.

I love this hike, but prefer to do it during the week (early) as it gets very, very busy! I never get tired of the view from the ledge.

Great trail thats in good shape. A few flies and mosquitoes near Talapus connector but nothing crazy.

Easy trail. Plenty of parking today at 930AM. Variety of hikers. Lots of people (as is the case with the influx of people to Seattle). Outstanding view.

Not scenic until you reach the top. Good hike and the view at the top is worth it, but there are much better hiking destinations in Washington.

Such a great hike with incredible views at the top!

HEAVY TRAFFIC!!! A lot of people on this hike and a lot of novice hikers so be cautious, but pretty easy accent couple steep switch backs but all in all took an hour up and an hour down at slow easy pace! Would recommend for dates or just a quick day hike.

Very beautiful view at the top!❤️

Easy hike with way too many people. The trail was swarming with people at 7:20am on a Wednesday morning.

This was my boyfriend & I’s first hike & it couldn’t have been more perfect. A moderate steep uphill hike to the beautiful breathtaking top! Some parts of the trail is tricky as this is mostly wooded & you are climbing over tree stumps and rocks- but for the most part- easy. The trail is roomy and clean. I TOTALLY recommend swimming in the lake after as it isn’t too crowded. A beautiful day hike and then a refreshing swim in the crystal clear river! Definitely doing this one again. ❤️

Awesome hike but it is very crowded and we hardly found parking spot. We came on Sunday.

Solid hike that was moderately difficult. Take breaks if you need to pace yourself but otherwise this isn’t a very challenging hike for some solid views that make it worthwhile.

Loved the view!

Awesome hike, Awesome views of the lake. I will definitely come again!

Great hike and awesome views. A bit rocky in places so make sure you have good footwear. Dropping one star because it was so popular and very busy (but, we went at about 1pm). There’s a lake nearby that’s awesome. Again, it’s really busy so get there early because parking fills up fast!

Because it’s an easy hike, it’s very crowded. I was there at 7:00 AM and there was a good amount of people on trail.

Went there during the week after work, it’s an easy hike but was too crowded

One of my favorite hikes. Hiked it two years ago and had to stop often. Now I’m more in shape it’s a lot easier. Good for first time hikers. The view is amazing. Be careful of the cliff some kid sadly passed away from falling off of it.

Amazing! but bring bug spray, you will get swarmed with flies

I really like this hike. What I like is that you are shaded by the trees. There are switch backs but nothing grueling...do Bandera, Mt. Si or mailbox for a challenge but this is cake in comparison. I would consider this hike on the easier side of moderate. I think this lake is just as beautiful as snow lake. This lake actually took my breath away because it is so green. While I love snow lake too I enjoyed this one more due to the shade and not as many rocks. I will agree with the other reviews. BUG spray is a must. I didn’t need it until I got to the lake but I would have been miserable without it.

One of the best view I’ve seen once you reach the top, it’s worth every incline and steps you take.

Awesome views! One of my favorite hikes in WA!

Bring bug spray! There are a lot of open areas, so you'll be under the sun quite a bit. Trail is pretty rocky too. I got to the trailhead at 830am on a Sunday, and the lot was getting close to full.

Your relationship will be tested unless you bring bug spray

Beautiful views!

Is this 5.1 Miles total or 5 Miles in and 5 Miles out?

Good moderate hike. Got there early and avoided the crowds and the heat.

I’ve done rattlesnake twice now, and I’m sure it’s one that I’ll frequent often. I love it, it’s always challenging no matter my fitness level because the elevation hits me the hardest here than any other hike I’ve been on. So if that’s something that gets to you, be prepared! The views are always spectacular, even when it was raining.

This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. Closer to 7.5 miles round trip, with a gorgeous lake to enjoy up top. As other reviewers noted, it’s a good workout for the first 3 miles of the hike and then levels out for the last mile or so. The hike is mostly in the trees so you’re not dealing with oppressive sun (like the Snow Lake switchbacks). Bring bug spray and sunscreen, and a snack to enjoy lakeside. Also a great hike for dogs, especially if they enjoy swimming.
