    While this trail certainly isn't deserted, its not like you have to shove your way through people, either. I would say during my 3-hour, 6-mile round trip hike I saw 50 other people or so. I certainly don't mind that, given the excellent maintenance of the trail. However, beware of unleashed dogs.

    The trail is pretty much uphill the entire way, but never too steep. It gets slightly steeper towards the top. Great view of the northern/northeastern cascades before you reach the summit. Summit boasts decent views towards the peninsula and Olympics, but pine trees cover much of the view. Not really a great payoff in terms of a good view for the work, but the rest of the hike is charming.

    Forest here is nice. View at top is nice too, but not spectacular. Trail has some loose rock and is steep at the very end (last .5 miles). The description is correct in that there was a lot of traffic on this trail.

    Strenuous hike for a beginner, which I am. The view at the top IMHO was not spectacular due to the fact that it was partially blocked by either the side of the mountain or trees.
