I have been doing this hike for 7 years now. From September thru June I average three times a week. I don't go much in the summer because it can get crowded. Also lots of bugs! Great workout ...you can do in in under an hour or as long as you want by adding on side trails or going up one side down the other than back and over again. The south side has the best views! Love Mt. Peak!

This is a moderate hiking trail. It may not be safe for children or pets. Overall, it was a great hike. Highly recommended for solitude.

It's a good trail to take if your low on time and wanna good workout. The views from atop are a little skewed with the amount of trees and foliage and mosquitos are rampant topside but its still a good hike either way. The front side is a quad burner with mainly steps and the backside seemed to be a gravel road (fairly easy for kids and parents with bad knees. Both trails lead to the same spot but start respectively, North and South so have fun and enjoy yourself.

7/20/14 - Worst. Hike. Ever... But that's not the fault of the trail. The weather was so foggy that we could rarely see more than 50 yards ahead. There was absolutely no vista or point of reference getting to the trailhead and we took several wrong turns on very narrow forest roads trying to find it. Once there, we walked on a wide, dirt road for a bit until we found what we thought was the trail. It was so foggy that we actually missed the new trail and took the old one which leads to the very old rope that you need to pull yourself up the cliff. That rope will snap at one point. It won't be good. The climb wouldn't be too difficult (unless you have a large dog like we did), but locating the trail at the top was tricky. I had to climb up a nearby boulder before I could see the trail again. After a bit we ended up connecting to the new trail and made it to an amazing meadow full of tall flowers (I don't know the name) that looked like they were right out of a Dr. Seuss book. I'll post photos. We walked through this meadow for what seemed like way too long and convinced ourselves we had to be in the wrong place. It turns out that we probably turned around just before the lookout. After looking at the satellite map I am still lost in the fog about where we were because it clearly shows the trail starting right at the parking area... Anyway, we had a good time and saw some amazing flowers and rock formations. Unfortunately we missed out on the view completely. I'll be going back to find out what I missed.

Crystal Mountain Trail

We have done this a couple ways. If you have all day do it right. Instead of taking the gondola up go up and go the long way. You won't be disappointed. My wife and I started hiking up bullion basin to the pct. when you finally reach the top of bullion basin you have a gorgeous view of Rainier, Adams, and Crystal. We then took the pct to bear gap. This part is awesome as you walk along ridge lines with amazing views. We then took the north trail and dropped down to heskin lake, had lunch, then started ascending again. When we reached the summit at the gondola we had hiked 9 miles and gained about 2500 ft in elevation. At the top have a cold drink and ride the gondola down for free.

Tuesday 7-8-2014: My wife and I hiked to Kelly Butte lookout near Mount Rainier. The trailhead is 14 miles from highway 410. The last 6 miles are somewhat confusing dirt roads. The weather was perfect. Wildflowers are blooming. The new trail (2007) is a vast improvement over the old trail that requires a rope. The trail is in good condition. The lookout cabin was unlocked and it was nice to have lunch while seeing Mount Rainier.

This hike was a lot of fun! It wasn't very challenging but then again we didn't do the full 4.2 miles down to the river because our daughter started getting a bit fussy. The view of the river is beautiful but you can only see it in certain areas. Part of the trail is very narrow and a little overgrown. You might want to wear pants because of the stinging nettles. The park is awesome with a great playground and a spray pool. We had a nice picnic after our hike. We went on a Sunday and it was open until 8 I believe.

Fun hike with lots of opportunity for adventure and climbing at the top! The view was great but unfortunately the water fall wasn't running very strong today. Still totally worth the hike though! I even the drive up to the trail head is pretty!

I enjoy doing the south side, it has a nice wide gravel path and great views. I try to go once a week, it's a perfect quick after work hike. It's fun trying to set new personal best times (17mins up is my current best).
The north side is fun as well and takes me about an hour round trip if you're moving and not taking many breaks.
I've heard you can go up one side and back down the other? I've done some exploring around the top but haven't figured out where the two trails connect.
Good for most levels of hikers I'd say:)

Very steep, great workout but not much of a view on the north side. Will come back to try the south side.
