    We began our hike a little before 9am early July on a weekday morning. We didn’t see many people— one benefit of going on a weekday morning. The trail is one of the best maintained I’ve seen — although it gets rockier with a few easy stream crossings as you climb to higher elevations. We found a few ripe salmon berries. Lots of wildflowers in full bloom including columbine, fox glove, and lupine to name a few. Most of the hike is through shaded Douglas fir forest until you break above tree line just as you reach the alpine lower Granite lake — a beautiful emerald green gem. It was a beautiful day to take in this beautiful serene setting. One of my new favorite hikes!

    Great hike with moderate vertical, nice creek and high ridge-line with great views.

    Easy hike, but over grown. The Boxley Blowout could not be seen. Good for first easy hikes and walks or trail runs.

    Very well maintained trail. Traffic noise from I-90 is a bit bothersome at start in places for first half. Big day to go to the summit. Great views, it's a ridge summit with some trees. Snow over last mile was difficult, cleats recommended. Upper half of the trail is along an old logging road.

    Trail in good condition overall. Lower portion generally dry with cobbles. Mid section has running water and snow still hanging in at 3800; and spikes strongly suggested for upper trail. Great views to the south.

    The trail was closed during the summer of 2018 for trail work. Though I hadn't been on the trail prior, the current trail has plenty of signs and is easy to follow. The trail work also rerouted a small section on the trail from the map but it's hard to get off trail. Consider hiking to the balcony for a shorter hike. I'm still sore a couple days after hiking as the top section gets steeper towards the top and follows old mining roads. From the top, you can see distant view of Rainier and Baker.

    The trail was in great shape. No bugs and the fall colors are starting to pop out. Several small stream crossing and a few dry ones - but nothing that requires getting your feet wet. Right as you get to the shore of Upper Granite Lake things get a little muddy, but completely manageable.

    Hike is good for scoping out climbing areas and for a close-to-Seattle hike where you don't want to take all day. The view is decent from the top. Turns for the trail are mainly marked but don't forget to take a description of the turns or a map with the trail to follow with you.
