This is a fine hike on a well maintained but busy forest trail overlooking the Cedar River, Mount Si, Mount Washington, Rattlesnake Lake and Chester Morse Lake watershed. You've got a view of Rattlesnake Ledge's sheer rock face across Rattlesnake Lake as soon as you get to the parking lot. At this point, it seems amazing to think that by the end of your hike you will be there, but looking at a trail map will reveal some well-engineered switchbacks— with the courtesy of many WTA work parties — that will bring you to your destination with less effort than you might expect.
There are no difficult spots (climbing up or over anything nor walking close to a ledge) but it's easy to make the trail harder and a better workout by going quickly during the climb.
There were lots of people and lots of dogs, probably 80% off leash. After only two miles, you've got a great view from the top!
