Great as long as you go early

Insanely crowded. I felt like I was in a single file line going up.

It took about 2h30m getting to the lake and 1h30m going down for my team. It was so windy at the lake while we got there (about 2pm).

The trail itself is great, but it's heavily trafficked

Too many insects/bugs during hike.

Very scenic trail. Need good hiking shoes preferably waterproof. Cold at the top in November!

I got engaged on Mount Si! Great day to go for a hike. Very clear and the trail was well maintained. There is a small spot where a tree has fallen over the trail and people have made a trail through it, but coming back down it’s hard to tell where it is. All over perfect day.

The trail is nice. It’s a good scenic trail with lots of cool places to stop and take pictures. The only bad thing is it’s a popular trail. Once you get to the top, you’ll be fighting for places to stop and take a break or pictures. We went on a Saturday morning and we were at the top with about 50 other people who had the same idea as we did today. The parking lot fills fast and people started parking on the street before the parking lot. So, we’ll definitely go back on a Wednesday morning or something so it won’t be so crowded.

Great hike for all age groups. If you’re not a beginner, I’d recommend trail running as well. Breathtaking views from the cliff. You can continue further if you wish as the trail continues further. Took us 3 hours from car to car including breaks. Would highly recommend for sunrise.

Steep for kids, but amazing views and great lookout at the top. Mountain stream just over halfway up.

Took a hike in the rain and I’m glad I did! We parked close to the ranger house and you can take a peak at the river before you start your hike. The trail is easy to follow and there is a fork but don’t worry, both of the paths will take you to the fall viewing area. Bathroom by the falls Incase you feel the urge to go.

The rain has arrived. Trail was not really muddy or slippery, though the top was shrouded in clouds with zero views. Good exercise as usual. Tip for getting some view under such weather: at the UPPER talus loop trail junction take a detour onto talus loop trail. In about five minutes you will arrive at the talus pile. This is low enough that it can be below the clouds, but high enough to have a descent view.

Hiked it with my dog on 10/27. I am super out of shape but I pushed myself and made it up and down! I am proud of myself- as this hike is an ass kicker. It was beautiful. My dog had no issues, he’s in much better shape than me haha!!

I've always found the hike a little boring up until the viewpoint. There are a lot of switchbacks and not a lot to see until the end. However, the view is definitely worth it! Be careful at the top!

hiked from iron horse trail it is about 2.5 miles off trail, well worth the hike good views not too busy but there are people

The Lake was so beautiful and not much traffic. Hike was not bad but too windy at the top. The fall colors are gone :( Still an awesome hike with many falls creek running along for most part of the hike.

Beautiful trail. I got there at 10:30am and there were lot of parking spots. It took 2 hour uphill and 1hr 15min down hill. I will be back in the summer, Great Lake and picnic area.

Great hike today! Beautiful weather, no snow, lots of fallen leaves. Glad I brought my poles.

Went this morning (Saturday 10/27). Glad we got there early (~8:15) not too many people on the trail yet, but they were steadily streaming in as we left. We took ~2.5 hours with breaks at the view points. The lake isn’t really there at the moment, so the views weren’t as great, but still nice mountain shots. We thought the first big viewpoint was just as good or better than the one at the top (this may change when the lake is actually there).

Decent traffic, great views.

Enjoyed

There’s a lot of switchbacks and is a little overcrowded. Otherwise, it’s a great trail!

I think it’s a little difficult lol. But I also hear it’s really easy. I’ve gone a couple times and the view is definitely worth it. Very dangerous at the top as I know many have slipped and fell at the top view..

Butt kicker, but a nice view at the top of the rocks. Only real downside is the number of people and an overall lack of trail etiquette

Ok hike. Not the best views considering the miles. Would also be prettier in the summer.
Might try again next year.

Overcrowded. Nice view though...

This hike is accurately rated as moderate. It’s well marked/traveled but is all up to the late and all down back out. I spent most of the summer kayaking and haven’t lived in this area very long so I am not used to this much elevation gain. It took me about 4 hours to get up and 2 1/2 hours down. We met 2 groups that turned around and didn’t make it up because they were going to run out of time (not because they didn’t think they could ultimately do it) I think people commenting it took them 2 hours to get up are in great shape. So if you’re like me and in OK overall shape but maybe not hiking shape please know this is absolutely doable but leave time. We packed a lunch, spent about 90 minutes around the lake and then made our way back down. It was a beautiful sunny day.
