After-work conditioner on one of the longest days of the year. 2 hrs. 15 minutes to the top and some spectacular views. Great evening out!

This was an OSAT conditioner. There were about 40 people on the trail today. Somebody must have published a description in a book or something.

Good training mountain, but it reminded me of why I hate trees.

Good to be back, even in the rain. I have never seen so many people on this trail. 14 on the summit.

I can't remember how many times I've been up here, but there have been at least two different mailboxes.

Climbed this many times with my climbing partner training for the larger cascade mtns. A great conditioner. The trail gains about 4k in 3 miles! It goes through the forest, which feels haunted because it is so dense and the trail becomes less and less prominent. Good times! Just go up, and follow the obnoxious green dots on the trees. If you want a killer exercise, pack up about 50lbs up of water, dump it at the top and RUN down! Whoooo! Legs were sore for about a week!

This is a cool outdoor stair stepper. Very balanced 3000' elevation gain in 3 miles across soft ground. Another similar climb recommended is McCellan Butte, 5150' elevation gain in 4.5 miles again across the street.

After hearing stories about this trail, I was surprised to find it in such good condition. There was reasonable traction even on a rainy night. If you end up too far to the right (south), there's a flagged trail that starts to traverse through the more dense, new growth forest. Go back to the open forest and head straight up until you intersect the trail.

I wasn't really sure what to expect on this one or even how to get to the trailhead. Very very steep, much more so than Si. Everything from the boulder field on is awesome and the perfect weather added to it. Summitted an hour and 45 after leaving the car. My legs will be sore tomorrow.

Great early season training hike. The lower trail was in good shape with just a moderate amount of mud. Just before breaking treeline, the snow/ice predominates the trail and we enjoyed the snowy upper reaches which allowed for knee deep postholing to the summit. No view :-( due to dense clouds and snowy weather.

Snow was pretty good considering all of the recent snowfall in the area. Besides the high clouds, the weather was good, making for a fun trip up to the mailbox. We only saw about half a dozen people today. This is so much better than Si.

(gimpilator) was hauling ass up and down. Thanks to Adam we made it. Cold day, but the wind chill factor was great. Never do this one without a camera or by yourself. Also remember that at the top on a clear day the view is perfect.

Started at 7:00 am in the dark. Reached summit in 3 hours. Hard rain for the first hour, then reached snow level about 1,000 feet from summit. About 3 inches at the mailbox. Good trip but quite slippery with all the wet roots on the trail. Talus field also a little tricky with the new snow. That slowed us down a bit.

Clear weather this time and the best view of Rainier I've seen from any summit yet. The deck of cards I left last time was still in the taller mailbox. This hike always seems twice as long on the way down.

Lots of rain and no view on top. My boots were soaked inside and out before we even got on the trail. This is a steep unrelenting challange of a hike. You shouldn't try it unless your in good physical condition.
