Saw three groups on the way up the trail, which is almost completely in the shade which is a huge benefit for a really hot day hike. Fortunately for us today, perfect clear day with the temp in the 50s as started. Pretty clear sailing going up to the top of the peak, which looks daunting from Eunice Lake however it is only another 10-15 minutes tops from the lake itself.
On the way down there were at least 20 groups heading up.
Did not encounter any bugs or animals along the trip.
Never went this way before, impressed with it being about 90 minutes from the Seattle area.
