After a recommendation from a friend who did this loop a few weeks back, I decided on this awesome hike as an intro to the cascades for some out of town visitors. Couldn't find great documentation for turn by turn directions on WTA or Crystal Mountain's site, but there was pretty solid signage the whole way up to the gondola. 

How many hikes within 2 hours of Seattle have alpine lakes, alpine meadows, views of Rainier, and a restaurant at the end? I'm shocked there weren't more people, this was definitely one I would do again.
