This hike is easy to moderate there are some steeper switchbacks but it’s not that hard and it’s in the shade. It’s pretty dry up until the last 2-3 miles then it gets more green the higher you go up and it’s very pretty. The view of the lake is amazing. I didn’t swim in it because I fear of dead bodies and sharks in all water lol. If you have a dog bring them because they will love swimming in the water there was two waterfalls and areas of water going on the trail so if your dog is thirsty that is a plus. Rocky in some areas and the tree roots are coming up in some of the trail so watch your step. Did see beat skat that everyone was talking about but saw no bears at all

This hike kicked my ass. Went when it was in the 100’s and it was humid. Went through my camel pack water and two water bottles before even reaching the top. Luckily a guy gave me a water and Gatorade because I had a panic attack and was crying because it was so humid. So yes bring LOTS of water. The hardest part was the last mile going up the rocks and probably coming back down because your exhausted. But the view is worth it. If you’re not in shape or don’t hike I suggest that you don’t do this as your first hike.

BRING LOTS OF WATER LOL

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

Finally heathy enough to try this. It bugged me every time I drove up I-90 and saw it sitting up there. Did it last Saturday on a nice cool, but cloudy day. Got a glimpse of Chester Morse as clouds lifted for a minute. Loved the fact it was not crowded. Only saw about 10 people all day. I was slow up and down, including a clumsy stumble. Just a flesh wound, so nothing other than some scrapes and pride. Funny, my first thought was “did anyone see that” knowing full well no one was around.

Trail is not as well travelled as Mt Si despite their similar statistics. It has some more rocky spots, hence the stumble.

I’m not much of a repeat hiker, too many places to hike, but would like to do this again on a clear day.

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

Didn't have 10 dollars for a day pass so I didn't get to experience nature.

Good hike, Two beautiful lakes. We went there with kids (11 yr, 8 yr, 6 yr). Trail path is wide enough and good. Moderate crowd.

Been there on Saturday 08/04/2018. One of the best hikes. Though it is little long hike for me, I enjoyed it fully because of few view points on the way. Trail is wide and good. The lake at the end is nice and easily accessible for swimming. Small parking area. I would go there again.

Been there on Sunday 08/11/2018. Enjoyed the hike but did not like the fact that there are no view points (no creeks, no waterfalls or no high views), it was all dry. The tail path is wide and good. I guess this trail is rated Hard because of the elevation and the distance. Took 4 hours to the top and 2.5 hours to come back. Less crowd. Not much sun light. It was all rocks at the top. The view from the top is good. Near to North Bend Downtown and easily accessible, decent parking lot. Restrooms are horrible.

Great hike very few people. Nice view at the top my altimeter said 1574 feet of elevation from the parking lot.

We loved this hike! The Ira Spring trail is fairly steep and provides a good work out, with some interesting exposed sections periodically up switchbacks and then amidst boulder fields toward the summit. Views are incredible on a cloudy day. We went up and over to the Mason Lake trail on the other side of the peak and enjoyed a nice break at the lake, enjoying the serene water and quiet before making our way up and back down the front side.

Great cool weather today for our first "hard" rated training hike. The trail is a bit hard to find in a couple of spots, but there are signs at most of the decision points. Be prepared for lots of rocks and overgrown berry bushes flanking long sections of the trail. Minimal bugs and great opportunity for views if skies are clear. Light traffic made this an enjoyable 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.

Well graded trail 2/3 in the forest and 1/3 in the open alpine. Great views

We did today!!!! It was FANTASTIC but EXHAUSTING!!!
We hiked on a new trail and we made it there for 3hours and 30 mins and 3 hours going down. Yay!!

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

Always a good strenuous hike/run. Today did two loops to the summit. Lots of friendly people out there today, appreciate everyone moving off to the side for this old guy running.

Lovely hike--tough finding the trail to the Butte as it is just near the Boxely Creek bridge and rather narrow but the best part is that it is in the forest and there was no one on it once we got off the gravel road. The view is not as nice as Rattlesnake but it was worth it to skip the crowds.

Lovely hike close to Seattle. Can be crowded.

Trail well maintained, nice view on the top, lots of berries , no bugs

Very solid hike! Many switch backs and increases in elevation. Bug weren’t an issue for me on 8/4/18. If you are out of shape this could get pretty difficult. Last stretch is a pretty steep incline. Go Early. Tons of people arrived in the afternoon. Going back down sucks.

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.

Lovely cruise hike with just the right amount of mystery about which mountain creature you might run into (sadly this bear-hungry Aussie only came up against one mean squirrel but a nice handful of humans coming up the trail while we made our way down).

The beginning of the hike is easier and runs along side a river. You’ll start to hear the waterfall as you hike deeper and start to gain a little elevation. There is a fabulous lookout point with benches to enjoy the view of the waterfall from afar. The hike becomes a slightly harder with lots of change in elevation towards the waterfall. There are no signs on the trail. We ended up at the upper falls spot first and then went back down towards the lower falls lookout afterwards. Gorgeous hike!!

Great workout. Not much for views until you get to top. Scramble the haystack for a fantastic valley and Mountain 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.

Overall good family friendly hike, it is busy though.

Such a great hike with incredible views at the top!

Truly a peaceful hike. There were lots of small waterfalls, beautiful clearings in amongst the rocks, lovely wildflowers, and picturesque lakes. Hiked in August and had no problems at all, except the mosquitoes; definitely bring bug spray.

This hike is a pleasant workout. I started the hike from the Alpental parking lot, not from the recommended trailhead on this map, because it would save me an hour of driving. I logged 20 miles on this hike, but I also did a little extra exploring.

This one is on my list for backpacking. Two super enthusiastic thumbs up. Happy hiking!
