  • Outstanding view of Mt. Rainier in the morning. We hiked in late June and the flowers were in bloom and beautiful along the trail. This is a pretty easy hike as far as distance and elevation gain are concerned. This is a hike that I would do over again for sure.
  • Nice and easy short hike. Beautiful views of Mt Rainier and the wildflowers along the trail. Even some views of Dewey and Tipsoo Lakes nearby. Worth the drive.
  • Easy but beautiful loop hike with stunning views of Mt. Rainier as well as Tipsoo Lake. Part of the trail is on the Pacific Crest Trail. The usual advice is to hike it clockwise from Chinook Pass, so you can be facing Rainier toward the end of the hike. May be snow covered well into July in normal snowfall years.
  • The rewards for the small amount of effort are fantastic! One of the best hikes I've been on.
  • Absolute best family hike ever. So many great vistas without too much difficulty. Great for teenagers. Only open in late Summer because of snow.
