We ran into snow it was awsome couldn’t do the whole hike

Perfect trail for young families. Hiked the trail a few years ago. Beautiful trees and fun suspension bridge river crossing.

Pretty nice trail up to about 5000 feet. Then it vanishes into a tangle of massive fallen trees and snow.

To give an accurate review, I feel like I need to start with before we started hiking. We drove out starting at 2:30 or so,so naturally it was dark from FR-23 onwards. Google maps will try to take you straight up a cliff (we found this out looking for the supposed shortcutting turn on FR-2324 on the way out, the long route is the only route), but we were doing fine until we hit the fog. This isn't your average everyday fog, this was see-about-one-foot-in-front-of-you, sitting up as tall as you can, thick as cheese fog. It was about this time that I decided to close my eyes - not a huge fan of cliffs and curvy narrow roads with low visibility. So we continue on , ~5mph, for a bit until we're going uphill and I hear my friend/driver swear, the car stalls, and I hear this terrible grinding sound from underneath the car. I thought we were falling off the road. We were not, there was just a lot of underbrush. My night got better (read: worse) when we were walking around realizing we'd gone too far and I heard what sounded like a rumbly growl from behind my friend and we high-tailed it back to the car. Was it an animal? No. No, it was my friend farting. We finally found the trailhead (alltrails GPS coordinates are accurate) and slept there for the night. Got started at 6:15 and missed the sunrise by probably about 15 minutes; didn't realize how steep the trail was going to be. It's also very narrow and branches/bushes will catch you as you walk along it. Maybe 2 inches of snow on the top half of the trail. I didn't go to the very top, but my friend did. It was very exposed and also icy (keep in mind this was before the sun had even hit it; so it would be even worse in daylight I imagine). There is a guardrail accompanying the scramble to the peak. I got halfway up that and the view was not quite worth the adrenaline-rush of determinedly clutching the guardrail. We stopped for breakfast up there - temp was about 25° and after sitting for 10 minutes, our water bottles had ice in them. Some great views of Adams, St Helens, and Rainier though! I enjoyed the hike down much more than the hike up. Summary: type 2 fun hike, probably only go when weather is optimal and even then be cautious. Or just go earlier in the year - it might be less icy then but no promises.

short and sweet

Hiked on 11-1-19. Trail was in great shape. Hit a little snow in the shady parts toward the top but easily possible. Didn’t need the spikes. Great workout - constant up. Beautiful views from the top! Adams, St Helens, Hood, Rainier...all visible. Gorgeous panorama!

Great trail! Don’t be alarmed by the bridge outages. They were easy to cross. Beautiful falls!

It's easy and the trees are gigantic! A must do for your first time in the park, especially if you haven't seen huge trees like this before. (August)

Good

Road was open and in good condition, though a low car may get stuck in some of the drainage as previously reported. Trail-head is clearly marked and lots of space for vehicles. There is a downed tree and brush early along the trail, but fairly easy to get around. Snow covers part of the trail for the last mile, the peak had no snow on it.

This hike was awesome. We started from the ohanapecosh campground (walk in). Took a small side trail and saw cool hot springs at the beginning. I did this hike alone with three kids under ten and two dogs. Everyone loved it.

Very cool hike amongst some giant ancient trees. Reminded me of the Ents. I especially liked the twin 1,000 year old Douglas firs.

The road is washed out about a 1/2 mile maybe less from the actual parking lot. It was easy to park and walk up the road to the trailhead though. Hike was fun, difficult and very wet in places. Lake was pretty.

Hiked on Oct 11. Any car can drive to TH, bathrooms available, need NW Forest Pass. Beautiful sunny day so epic views. Made it to 1 peak on Whittier, had to turn back because of snow on ridge, very dangerous to continue.

This was my first hike in Rainier and it did not disappoint me one bit at all. Beautiful plants/fungi and streams of water. Silver falls was amazing and captivating. Definitely on my top of the list when I come back again.

Hiked Sunday the 6th and what a gorgeous day to have chosen. Road in is in good shape. A few drainage areas that would make it tough for a car but doable. Trail is in good shape other than a few sections that the motorcycles have tore up or dug deep ruts. A couple riders made no effort to slow down or let you find a safe spot along the trail, otherwise most were courteous. Lots of mountain bikers. Trail is steep from get go and definitely a good workout. From the top you can see Mount Rainier, Adams and St. Helens. Definitely a hike I’d do again.

Was a fun little hike to do with my dog, that led to 2 totally different, very neat - waterfalls. The area at the top above both falls is really unique, then - once you start coming back down you follow the bottom of another really cool cliff band for a couple hundred meters. It is very steep in some area, would not try this in the snow.
