Nice and tough trail. Busy even on weekdays. Nice to see the paragliders flying. Took 2.5hrs for me round trip.

Good, tough workout in a place that's much prettier than most gyms, but it's definitely not a quiet wilderness trail. I'll be coming back here for more training for elevation. It's also fun to watch the paragliders take off from the top.

Steeper than expected, with a couple solid views in the clearings at the top but nothing else truly remarkable along the way. Good for a quick, stiff workout, but busy and loud- 4-5 people having mobile phone conversations at various points, and one with a loud radio that he decided to share with everyone else in the vicinity. 2 star hike that gets an extra star for the exercise.

I have been on the trail twice. Each time a good work out. The scene on the top is beautiful. You can see mt rainier in the first point in a clear day. You can take a few mins to get to poo poo point to see the glider there.

Super steep and definitely a solid workout. Not the most scenic trail, but the 1st quarter has super awesome stone steps. The view at the top is nice but before that there's a better view of Ol'Rainier. Great for a quick tough hike.

Harder than rattlesnake for sure. This is a beautiful and slightly buggy trail, but I loved it. Will do again. Had a nice lunch watching the para sailers fly around.

Nice place for a hike. We took 45 minutes to get to the top with occasional stops, 35 minutes to get down. This trail is great because it can be taken slower or ran up for a harder workout. We saw a few para gliders taking off at the lower view point. Make sure to hike the extra few minutes to the poo poo point.
