It is a short drive from Seattle/Tacoma to the mountain, but one can spend many hours there hiking through the woods, looking at waterfalls, and admiring the scenery.
There is an overpriced cafeteria available or you can bring a picnic lunch.
On the drive there, you pass through many small towns that are cute that I would love to go back and explore.
It does not cost you anything to go there so it is a nice cheap way to entertain a family for a day.

I parked the car at the intersection of 410 and another road, and decided to hike the closed highway, since I lacked my boots. This was a good decision. The scenery is beautiful up here, even on a gray and snowy day (not to mention, COLD). There is total and complete silence here - no cars, no cell phones, nothing. I hiked about three miles and the snow was deeper and deeper on the road. Some guy on a bicycle rode past me on the way back down. There were comforting signs indicating avalanche warnings.
The hike up and back took about three hours. There are many trails in this beautiful park, and I plan on going back to hike them properly. It is difficult to see the big mountain itself, due to the fog, but I did see it, in its 14,000 foot glory.
