We had originally planned a Mt. Rainier hike off 410 but had to change plans just outside Enumclaw where they had closed the road down. So we switched gears and made our first trip to Taylor Mountain. We did the Holder Creek trail - we saw trail closed sign at the first bridge but the tape had been taken down so we thought maybe someone had just forgot the take the sign down. There were some blowdowns on the trail but nothing too bad. When we got to the end where it meets up with the Road K, there was another closed sign with a chain across the trail so I guess we should not have taken the trail but it didn't seem too bad. The worst part was when we took a wrong turn before the trail crosses the creek and heading up hill to the left. Trail continued some ways before it became overgrown and too hard to follow. When we retraced our steps we figured out our mistake and continued on the correct trail without problems. From the Road K junction we took that to the junction with Road A. From there we took the Holder Knob trail and are lunch at the Horse Picnic area. A smokey view but no Rainier views along that trail. We linked up with the Holder Ridge trail and took it back to the parking lot. Saw one little frog but that was about it. On the plus side there was good amount of shade for most of the hike and we ran into less than 5 people the entire time. Not what we had planned for the day but still a day outdoors is always better than a day working.
