You get a glimpse of what views lie ahead while you hike up the steep trail. Beautiful meadows with lots of wildflowers and not too many people on this trail. The flies are there in abundance and I'd recommend bringing bug spray.
Once you reach the summit, you forget about all the pain and sweat during your hike. The views are unbelievable and rewarding. We could see clear to the Pacific and to Mt. Rainier on the other side. The hike down is another challenge for those with knee problems as it is very treachurous in certain spots and you have to take it slow.
Overall a great challenge to conquer and I'm glad I can say that we did it!
