The trail is super easy to find with a visible sign at the intersection where you need to turn. It was very well maintained when I did it. As soon as you pass the tree line, the trail will start to go up a face. That part was really steep! 

Check out the weather before heading out to make sure you bring the right gear!

Unfortunately, I was not able to see a view on top as it was super foggy but on a clear day you can see all the major Cascade peaks, as well as close-range views of neighboring Mt. Washington, Stone, Pershing, and a glimpse of Mt. Olympus in the distance.
