    disagree with 'easy' rating for this hike.
    started from the independence pass trailhead (TH), not the norway pass TH. 1 mile gentle uphill (150 feet gain) on independence trail (#227) to junction, go left (clockwise) here on #227. great views of mt. adams, mt. hood, and mt. st helens, spirit lake. trail becomes more exposed and quite narrow at times, for this reason i rate this hike as moderate and not recommended it for people who have trouble with exposed trails nor for children(at times only about a foot wide with 300+ foot dropoffs). at norway pass take trail #227a to the right, views of mt. rainier, mt. adams, and meta lake, return to loop start junction and go left and return to TH.
