Short nature trail near Snoqualmie pass. The nature trail is a short, easy walk through one of the last remaining stands of old growth in the Snoqualmie Valley. The trail crosses Humpback Creek several times before rising gently into a grove of mature Douglas-fir, western hemlock and western red cedar. Mosses, ferns, orchids and a large variety of other wildflowers abound on the forest floor. Winter wrens can be heard from their perches among the trees and occasionally a pileated woodpecker can be spotted. This is an excellent walk for families with young children as well as for older people; however, use caution for some of the cedar boardwalk planks become slippery when wet.
8/12/2016 (Friday) - Feel like unused and abandoned. Signs are unclear. Lots of spider webs and flying bugs. Not a pleasant feeling inside. The bridge at the entry is still impressive. Trail leading to the other side of the highway (with a picnic area there) is also unused and obsolete. Maybe this used to be an attractive place for families years ago.
This trail was a perfect walk for our two year old to complete on her own. It was a pretty trail and well maintained.
05/01/2015 - I worked with a trail crew from WTA today maintaining parts of the trail. Everything is in great condition. This is a perfect hike for those with mobility issues or small children.

Enjoyable short walk in the woods with some interpretive signs along the way.
Very nice, quick little walk. I took my kids (9 and 3) and both could walk the whole thing no problem. It is very well maintained and the girls loved the bridge and steps. Be sure to grab a trail guide at the beginning. My 9 year old loved playing Trail Guide reading about the local vegetation, learning about Asahel Curtis, finding out what snags are, trying to count rings and more... we were on the trail much longer then it took to walk as we were thoroughly learning everything the guide and trail had to offer!!
