Constant up but not too steep except for beginning mile. Excellent tread easy on the feet. Fabulous views at the top: of course Rainier but also Adams, Mt St Helens, Hood, Glacier to the north. Variety of flowers especially beargrass. TH says 7.8 miles RT but my Gaia tracked 8, consistent with guidebooks. Good early season hike since no snow by early July. Also not fa from Seattle.so convenient, most hike to Crystal Lakes.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Lovely trail, very good tread; great variety of wildflowers: paintbrush, penstemon, lupine, bear grass, tiger lilies, queens cup, etc. At top, views of Hood, Adams, St Helens, Baker, Glacier Peak and wonderful views of Rainier. Start early by 8:30 to avoid crowds on a weekday. Moderately strenuous.
Great hike. Fantastic views of Rainier, Crystal lakes,...
