Excellent trail that quickly climbs out of Sunrise to Frozen Lake and then on to the Wonderland Trail which is a great way to return to Sunrise. Wonderful views of the Mountain for virtually the entire 3 mile hike. Be sure to pack extra clothing -- as we approached Frozen Lake on a hot, sunny day, a cloud appeared out of nowhere and the winds were then cold. We also encountered some fairly dangerous snow heading back down to Sunrise on the Wonderland Trail. BE CAREFUL!
The only thing that lowered the rating of this trail for me was the number of people we encountered. It was crowded until we hit the Wonderland Trail.
