Hiked this on Saturday May 17. Not to hot Mid 80's. Nice flowers and views from the top. It is a good change from forest hiking and that was the purpose of this trip since there was still a hugh amount of snow in the cascades this year. (They where still skiing Alpental at snoqualmie pass this year on Memorial day!)
A nice hike, with good views of banks lake, spring flowers, and hawks soaring along the rim right at eye level. There are even some deer on the top that we saw.
Not much shade, and no water. Could be much hotter later in the year. As nice as this hike is don't miss Northrup Canyon just a few miles away. South across the road.
