This was an absolutely wonderful short hike. Unlike some trails that don't reward you until you get to the top, this offers nice views of the mountain most of the way up. It begins roughly 500 or more ft. below Paradise and ends up 1000 or more above it. We had a rare "after school starts, 80 degree, September" weekend offering up great views of climbers coming down from the summit of Mt. Ranier and Camp Muir. Make sure you bring plenty of water for this one as it's definitely an uphill venture. Put some weight on your back if you're in training and bring your binoculars !!! Thanks Chris n Vicki
