hiking

wild flowers

beautiful and quiet in October. not too many people to populate the trail. careful of aggressive bikers though, got ran over for having my headphones in while walking.

trail is super lumpy. Lots of boulders under some dust. hard on the feet and ankles but still a decent trail. slight elevation gain but nothing a healthy person couldn't handle. expect more motorized traffic than actual foot traffic.

there isn't much sign for trail and we got lost.

on Mima Falls Trail

The trail is well maintained and fairly easy. The only annoyance was all the horse poop on the trail but it wasn't anything major. Dogs on leash are allowed which is nice, took an overweight three year old golden lab and he did great. This is a hike I would bring my somewhat older parents on.

Way too much house poop! Not clearly marked as where to go to see the falls. It is a nice hike though if you're on a time schedule.

Very easy 3-mile walk with options for a shorter walk if needed. Fascinating information center.

you can keep a good fast pace hike on the ascent and decent. The dirt bikes were really no bother since you can hear them a long ways away.

This trail is covered in horse poop! It is gravel all the way too the falls. A lot of money has been spent on this trail and seems to be a perfect bike trail. The route going to the falls isn't marked well. Good luck trying to find it and once you get there it is a let down. The water that feeds the trickling falls looks nasty and wouldn't dare touch it. I give it 3 stars because it would be great for biking and not hiking.

Disappointed. Not impressed with the "waterfall" barely even a waterfall. There are no signs showing where to go to get to it. If you continue on from the waterfall you enter a 15 mile loop. The 5.5 miles it says on the description is not a loop. There is horse poop everywhere on the trail but there is a pretty view if you accidentally hike 5 more miles in above the trees.

Nice quick trail with some decent spikes in the trail to get your heart rate up. However, the "falls" was more like a trickle! Lots of horse poop and gun fire near the trailhead due to the gun range nearby.

My daughter and I were excited to bike near the water but this route has no water views like shown in the photos. The path is nicely paved but is not a loop like described. If you start at the head of the trail, you must use an overpass on Evergreen Parkway to get to the other part of the trail. We think this trail would be more interesting when it's a bit more wet as most of the ponds and bogs were dry. McLane School has done a nice job of labeling areas and critters of interest.

Fun, fairly easy trail. The only thing I didn't enjoy was all the horses and having to avoid their droppings everywhere.

Eh. This trail is not that enjoyable this time of year as it is littered with horse poop and muffled down by the sounds of gun shots. Its not until you reach the falls where you can't hear the reminiscing bangs. The falls themselves right now (August) is more like a trickle of water since the water level is low. Wait until the colder weather or spring season.

There was too much horse poop to enjoy the trail. It was everywhere. Also, the trail wasn't clearly marked. Had a terrible time. Will try again after November when horse season is over

Very easy to get lost in. The signs aren't very clear and at this time of the year the waterfall wasn't worth it

Nice easy hike. Gun shots aren't too bad. My wife and I just tuned them out after 10 min of hiking. Plenty of shade and berries! Before we knew it, we came upon the falls and got a few pics in accompanied with our friend. We crossed paths with a few bikers but I usually just jump out of the way and let them have the right of way as soon as I here them coming. One guy had a continuous bell going as he was riding. It would be nice if they all had that, or at least one if there were two or more coming around the corner. It would make the clearer path for everyone!! All in all it was fun and enjoyable, I recommend this trail for all to enjoy! Kids watch for the horse poop!!

Nice easy hike. The fall was really cute bc it's tucked away and small. My friend and I were the only ones there at the time. Edit- ignore the photos I posted, those are of a different hike I thought I was writing a review on. Sorry!
