  • Family friendly hike. Path has little incline and is short trail. The trail is well maintained. The snow is beautiful! DO NO GO IN THE CAVES!!! In summer/spring take a moment to observe the birds. Good place to go bird watching.
  • One of my favorite day use areas in Washington! Great views for all users and at times Ice Caves form at the bottom of an avalanche chute. It can be very dangerous to enter any ice cave yet many do each year. Just be very cautious as it can cave in at any time or a very heavy chunk break off the peaks above. Still, and awesome destination. Always respect natures beauty.Pack it in and pack it out! Be wise and be safe when near the mountain's base for falling objects.
  • Winter Hike: Easy hike however keep younger children close. The initial hike involves walking through a marsh area. I happened to see a kid drenched from head to toe. Must have fell in. The rest of the hike is nice and easy until you reach the foot of the mountains where it gets rocky. The location has a Lord of The Rings feel to it so listening to the soundtrack while hiking makes the experience more fun! Please note: rock slides are always possible and there are visible warning signs. Water and snacks are encouraged.
  • Its a very nice hike to go with kids. Very easy and so beautiful. We really enjoyed it. After hike we had nice lunch at their picnic area.
  • Great views, great feelings - just check if the road is open for cars as we had to go an extra 5 miles round just to get to the beg.of the trail. As I understood they close the road for cars in winter, so maybe beg.of June they open it.
