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.

Pretty steep incline, and not much scenery on the way, but the view at the top definitely made it worth it.
