It’s straight up the whole way, after the switch backs it just goes straight up. Also bring snow shoes or be ready to post hole to the lake. Great trail lots of fun

Turned around because of weather. Light snow starting at 5k, ice before then.

Hands down one of the most gorgeous hikes I’ve been on.

One of the best and most beautiful hikes around. Just make sure you are prepared for anything. The forecast may say one thing but things can get bad real quick. This hike should not be done in sneakers.

There is a rescue effort underway for a young woman. She started her hike last Thursday and has not been heard from. The weather has been too bad for a team to get in there and search for her. If you have been there in the last week and think you might have seen her, that could be important information for the authorities.

Snowing a lot in the meadows, almost made it to the lake however due to falling and being pregnant we decided to turn back before I got hurt. I would love to see this trail in the summer, will be coming back here again to make it to the lake.

Great hike but we did not finish it. About 1/3 of the way up the trail was covered with a fresh blanket of snow, masking the trail. We had to break trail across the traverse and use a gps and a few visual indicators to stay on trail. We turned around less than a mile from the lookout due to worsening blizzard conditions and increasing depth in snow. We saw Search and Rescue going up on our way down, they were looking for a missing hiker, they did not make it to the look out either because of the bad weather conditions.

Great hike! The hike is listed, at the trailhead, as 9 miles overall, but not sure about the accuracy. You will definitely hit snow at this time (mid October) but not enough to become a big obstacle. I didn’t bring cramp-ons, I even wore vans and they did just fine. Lots of mud however and some ice near the top. Fantastic scenery all the way up and down, however. Would do again, preferably in the summer months as we couldn’t see much due to the fog. Recommended for anyone looking for good scenery and a decent challenge as it is an incline most of the way up.

This was the most excruciating, demanding yet most rewarding and amazing trails that I have ever done... the first half of the trail was pretty smooth and easily doable till the cascade pass lookout... further out on the way to sahalie arm glacier, it started to be pretty steep and rocky which made it quite difficult a climb without poles... hence poles are highly recommended!!!! It was one of the amazing and wonderful views that I have ever seen and experienced which takes your breath away!!

AMAZING for the experienced hiker. Definitely one of the best hikes I have ever done if not top. Be warned, this trail has it all, but not for inexperienced hikers. Steep in the beginning but levels out once you hit the meadows to the ridge and then climbs again. The whole trail has technical aspects to it. Slippery tree roots in the beginning, to ice and snow, and bouldering/scrambling at the top. It is not well maintained in the upper reaches with no drains (*hint hint trail crews*) so it was PURE mud on the way down. I’m not a clumsy person and I fell three times with poles. Also, NOT EASY to get to the trail head. It is on the roughest USFS roads I have ever driven and I have an SUV. I would not recommend cars try to make it.

All switchbacks for the first several miles but does offer some amazing views.

Just finished this today (October 4th). Rain during the switchbacks turned to light, then medium snow halfway up. While the view was cloudy, the experience of hiking up through changing climates was sublime. Wet and cold weather gear was mandatory, and hiking poles definitely a good idea. There were quite a few slick spots and the trip down benefitted from extra support. We saw fresh bear tracks after the rock fall and headed back. It seems any manner of car can get up to the trail, but 4WD will certainly help.
