from the landing the hike will take a hour or two depending on your fitness level it took me a little over a hour straight through no stops. the trail is the same trail if your hiking to lk christine but once you reach the lake you keep going. i would say that the lake is about half way. after leaving the lake you will come to a split in the trail, you will want to stay left, the sign was gone the last time i went through. the hike itself is absolutely beautiful with lk christine on the way up also a good place to stop and take a breather. and at the top you can see mt ranier, mt adams, st helens and on a real clear day hood. my family and I love this hike and plan on doing it again as soon as the snow melts.
