We had saw reports that this trail didn't get a lot of use, considering its close proximity to Seattle. On some days maybe but today there were quite a few hikers out on the trail. Still some wildflowers left. First 2 miles of the trail is great -- steep in some sections but a well maintained trail to the bridge. After crossing the bridge the trail is overgrown in some sections so on a day like today when there had been rain the day before, it made for some wet sections. The creek crossings were not an issue today. Not too many views today as the clouds were pretty socked in but still the lake was nice. Would have been nicer if there were less people, especially some people who have loud voices and choose to smoke. We go to the mountains to get fresh air and quiet so that was a little letdown but overall still a good day out on the trail. Not much wildlife except for some birds and a few frogs.
